"Around The Horn" as written by Joby J. Ford, James Tweedy, Matt Caughthran and Jorma Vik....
And give it a rest and then try it again with more soul
Until you learn that clearing your heads'
Is the same as losing control in this space
Don't let it drive you crazy
Don't let it drive you insane, there's no point
Because you just keep turning us on and turning us off
And on and off and on

Until we're light as a feather and we're stiff as a board
Light as a feather and we're stiff as a board

Give it a break, 'cause if you try it again you'll get bored
Because you don't really know where it starts
But you know that it ends with no friends
'Cause even this is a test and I'm sorry if it breaks your bubble
But you still need some rest 'cause it's gonna go
It's gonna go

On and on and on
On and on
On and on
On and on
On and on
Oon
Until it hurts
We will go on and on
On and on
On and on
On and on
On and on
On and on
Until it hurts
We will go

And give it a rest and then try it again with more soul
Until you learn that clearing your heads'
The same as losing control in this space
Don't let it drive you crazy
Don't let it drive you insane, there's no point
That you still need some rest

On and on and on
And on and on
And on and on
And on and on
And on and on
And on
Until it hurts
We will go on and on
And on and on
And on and on
And on and on
And on and on
And on and on
Until it hurts
We will go

Turning us on and turning us off
You keep turning us on and turning us off

And give it a rest and then try it again with more soul
Until you learn that clearing your heads'
The same as losing control in this space
Don't let it drive you crazy
Don't let it drive you insane, there's no point

    General Commentthis song can be applied to just about anything with how open ended it is. it could be an addiction to something with people telling the addict to stop doing what hes doing.

    it could be about someone with ocd, with the "turning us on and turning us off part" about the light switch explanation of ocd, the person with ocd that keeps turning the light switch on and off

    it could be about a perfectionist, possibly with a instrument, who thinks that he can still get better, and it seems to his friends that its cool at first, turning us on, and then it pushes his friends away, turning us off. the instrument could also be driving him insane because he thats the only thing that he does, and he thinks that taking a break to clear his head is bad.

    his friends may have also lost trust in him, light as a feather. stiff as a board is a trust activity where one person is lifted by a few others on their back and has to stay stiff to be lifted. idk how that fits with the song though

    General CommentWatch "around cape horn" by captain Irving Johnson. It might not be what the Bronx were on about but it fits perfectly. 4 hrs on 4 hrs off, soul destroying work trying to sail a ship around cape horn. Freinds die on the trip etc etc. Bludy good watch anyway
