"Bottle Up and Explode (Demo version)" as written by and Steven P. Smith....
Bottle up and explode over and over
Because you react slower than slow
Put it away, check out for the day
In for a round of overexposure
The things Mother Nature provides
To get up and go
Bottle up and explode
Seeing stars surrounding you
Red, white, and blue
She looks at him like he's never known her
It's only been a year and a half
Thinking that that was a matter of fact
Thinking that he was about to come over
I’ve been standing up, waiting for you
You never showed
Bottle up and explode all the outside signs of you
Red, white, and blue
Bottle up and explode all the outside signs of you
Red, white, and blue

    General CommentThese demo lyrics seem very intriguing. Seems like the beginning of the song he's settling into his night with some alcohol. She explodes with stars when he sees a girl at the bar he was once close to. She's ignoring him. When he can't get her attention he tries to explode the pieces of memory that are reminding him that she's still around and that they ever knew each other. The final version added the sex reference...a memory of her crying while he was inside her...probably not a good memory to him. The final version seems to allude to him wanting to "be" the girl in order to figure her out.
