6 days straight and you're demanding results
"lets make this summer a good one"
no time for love except the weekend
I know that the title isn't fun now
you're spending weightless time in the air
and your beverage causes your skirt to lift

touch the ground
it wont be so bad to be consumed by fire
this could be your last chance
from the love seat it's so safe and easy
ottoman to bedspread
straight line trajectory

your skin is sticking to the fake leather of the couch
and as she looks up she doesn't recognize the face
and this is not the first time

6 days straight without a call
his heart is legally dead
and you are dumping dirt on top
without the title you can jump from
boy to boy and couch to couch
and never be burned by feeling

and i know that by this time next week
you'll be the one waiting at his front door
you'll say some things you'll never mean
trying to excuse / explain
just get it she's a waste of time
and i wont be afraid to

    General CommentHmm seems like a girl that sleeps around.
    I think this song is about a friend trying to tell another friend that the girl he's pining after isn't worth his time

    "and your beverage causes your skirt to lift"
    Sounds when she is under the influence of alcohol, she does stupid things like have sex with people..

    "and as she looks up she doesn't recognize the face
    and this is not the first time"
    She's having sex with someone she doesn't even know, but that happens often with her.


    "6 days straight without a call
    his heart is legally dead"
    The guy is upset that he hasn't heard from the girl.

    "without the title you can jump from
    boy to boy and couch to couch
    and never be burned by feeling"
    I think the 'the title' means like bf/gf etc.. And they haven't actually declared that they were officially a couple, so she just goes from guy to guy having sex.

    "and i know that by this time next week
    you'll be the one waiting at his front door
    you'll say some things you'll never mean
    trying to excuse / explain"
    And this is the girl trying to make it up to the guy that liked her.. She's trying to explain why she slept around and made so many excuses for doing what she did...

    "just get it she's a waste of time
    and i wont be afraid to"
    This is the friend saying to the guy that she isn't worth caring about, because she's never gonna change therefore she's not worth it.


    Gah.. I'm not sure if I'm 100% correct but this is just how I interpret it.

    General CommentI agree with much of what has already been said, and especially with oblivion's about TLTH live. One of the best live bands I've seen. Pure energy and audience involvement, and Jared sounds exactly like he does on the record.

    Anyway, I interpreted this song as being about a girl (not his girlfriend: "without the title you can jump from/ boy to boy and couch to couch") who is having a hard time giving up her life of playing around ("and as she looks up she doesn't recognize the face/ and this is not the first time") in exchange for a relationship with a good guy who likes her.

    Great song, even better live!
