"155" as written by and Travis L/hoppus Barker....
Love. This is getting harder,
And I can't seem to pick you out of the crowd.
But you, my dear, have been discovered a liar.
And I'm afraid that this is building up for far too long.

And this is not the time and place for us to speak like this.
If I had the thought, I'd never dream of it.
So dry your hollow eyes, and let's go down to the water.

In a different time and place the words could make more sense.
In a perfect world, the future wouldn't make a dent.
So dry your hollow eyes, and let's go down to the water,
Even though it's the last time.

Love. This is getting the best of me.
And truth be told, you were the start of it all.
Now you, my dear, might end up lonely.
Before you go, there's something you should know.

And this is not the time and place for us to speak like this.
If I had the thought, I'd never dream of it.
So dry your hollow eyes, and let's go down to the water.

In a different time and place the words could make more sense.
In a perfect world, the future wouldn't make a dent.
So dry your hollow eyes, and let's go down to the water,
Even though it's the last time.

And this is not the time and place for us to speak like this.
If I had the thought, I'd never dream of it.
So dry your hollow eyes, and let's go down to the water.

In a different time and place the words could make more sense.
In a perfect world, the future wouldn't make a dent.
So dry your hollow eyes, and let's go down to the water,
Even though it's the last time.

Please let's not speak.
Don't breathe a word,
Even though it's the last time.

    My InterpretationHonestly this song is about breaking up but there are some lines that make me wonder if it has a darker meaning.

    "But you my dear have been discovered a liar
    And I'm afraid that this is building up for far too long

    And this is not the time or place for us to speak like this"

    So they're arguing about something pretty big obviously, maybe she cheated or something of that nature and they're fighting in public or something.

    "So dry your hollow eyes and let's go down to the water
    Even though it's the last time

    Please let's not speak
    Don't breathe a word
    Even though it's the last time"

    Alright 'the water' might just be a place they had a date, like a picnic by the lake or something... but I cant help but think of drowning someone and leaving them there and behind, the last time you will ever see them.

    Its an 'out there' interpretation but I think it has merit, especially since at the end of the song there's also a fading beat that sounds like a heartbeat that stops at the end of the song which could support my thinking as well.

    General Commentpayback for Tom's first single with a&a? yeah, don't be so negative, keep positive, life moving, maybe it's just a piece emotion translation

    General Commentthis song reminds me of go. a good song where the emphasis is placed on the lyrics. this is a drift away from the harmonic and melodic songs, it is strait to the point. this is one of those songs you listen to when you want to think about something.
