Broken glass and red lights flash I can
(If sunrise sunrise is your muse than I can)
See the city burning for miles
Run back for all you can
(If secrets secrets never change)
Then I’m easy to replace
So come on baby its okay to
(I’ll be the last thing on your mind)
Say the words you’re dying to say
I’m clocking out for this one
(I’m falling falling faster than you’ll ever run)
And I’ll promise to show you the way

So call me on all my lies
Feed me on resignation
Its all a game till you break a heart
Then it’s a battle station

My tongue is still guilty if theres
One thing about me that still changes you
My empty streets still prove
That you’ll NEVER second guess me
Never stop to undress me
With your eyes
We might win this time

So choose the place (I’ll choose the time)
And pretty soon (You’ll realize)
This trace of lipstick down his back (down his back)
Is all we had
Over and over we lie (so here we lie)
Swimmin in sheets of white (bedsheets of white)
One day in this sea you’ll be drowning with me

So call me on all my lies
Feed me on resignation
Its all a game till the teardrops fall
Then it’s a battle station

My tongue is still guilty if theres
One thing about me that still changes you
My empty streets still prove
That you’ll NEVER second guess me
Never stop to undress me
With your eyes
We might win this time

I know you thought that I was perfect
But im not sure now that I am worth it
WITH MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL
I’LL BE WAITING FOR YOUR CALL
To set me free AGAIN

My tongue is still guilty if theres
One thing about me that still changes you
My empty streets still prove
That you’ll NEVER second guess me
Never stop to undress me
With your eyes
We might win this time

My tongue is still guilty if theres
One thing about me that still changes you
My empty streets still prove
That you’ll NEVER second guess me
Never stop to undress me
With your eyes
We might win this time

NEVER second guess me
Never stop to undress me
With your eyes
We might win this time

    General CommentI think this song means that he cheated on his girlfriend and she finds out but doesn't want to tell him.
    He realizes that she knows and he wants her to confront him ('So call me on all my lies') so that they can end the relationship.

    wants her to call him on it..

    General CommentThis is what I've figured out so far. 'If secrets, secrets never change. Then I'm easy to replace.'
    His girlfriend keeps saying she doesn't need him and can live without him.

    ''So come on baby its okay to
    (I’ll be the last thing on your mind)
    Say the words you’re dying to say''

    He's telling his girlfriend to confront him about him cheating and saying that because he's so easy to replace it won't phase her to leave him.

    ''I’m clocking out for this one
    (I’m falling falling faster than you’ll ever run)
    And I’ll promise to show you the way''

    He's leaving the confrontation up to her, he's falling faster than she can run away from. [running away from her problems.]

    ''So call me on all my lies
    Feed me on resignation
    Its all a game till you break a heart
    Then it’s a battle station''

    So confront him, let him leave. It's all fun for him until he realizes how bad he's hurt her and now its a tragedy.

    ''My tongue is still guilty if theres
    One thing about me that still changes you
    My empty streets still prove
    That you’ll NEVER second guess me
    Never stop to undress me
    With your eyes
    We might win this time''

    His cheating ways is guilting him, but it will change her for the better. He's been with all the girls on the block, now she'll never trust him but still want him. Maybe they'll overcome this.

    General Commenta relationship in which theyve had a lot of problems
    she said she deosnt need him
    "Then I’m easy to replace"
    and hes gone and cheated on her knwoing she needs him more than he needs her
    she knows hes cheated but not said anything
    and hes waiting for her to say something but knwos she wont coz shes completely under the thumb

    bit of a dickhead if you ask me
