"Still (Reprise)" as written by and Benjamin Scott Folds....
I must give the impression
That I have the answers for everything
You were so disappointed
To see me unravel so easily
It's only change
It's only everything I know
It's only change, and I'm only changing

You want something that's constant
And I only wanted to be me
But watch even the stars above
Things that seem still are still changing

    General CommentThe song is about how everything changes. Even the things you don't expect to. And it sucks.

    General CommentActually, if I recall correctly, Ben has said he invisioned Verne from Over the Hedge as a scientist that can't take change so he keeps his face up to the microscope only to find out that even those things that seem still are changing.

    To me it's a song about being resistant to change.

    Guy 1 says "it's only change"
    Guy 2 says "Only everything I know"
    Guy 1 says "Even the things that are still are still changing"
    The I see Guy 2 come to the harsh realization that he can't stop change.

    Also I love the verse about someone wanting something constant and then listing things that person themselves has changed, like haircuts, addresses, boyfriends and even lightbulbs.

    General Commentthis song just shows that no one is resistant to change. it affects us all at some point and nothing can resist it.
