Wait, I really don't have the guts for this,
It must have been abstracted with my appendix,
Or maybe it grows with my wisdom teeth.

Wait, It might be such a stretch,
It's not my fault legally,
I'll dial the doctors now,
You're right I never was a man for the law.
Please don't walk away in defeat.
Please don't walk away.

Wait, I haven't lost my courage on the rocks,
I haven't quite found the words to use,
I'm not sure they make the cards to break this ice.

Wait, Please wait until
Our socks are bitterly soaked,
Until we have to roll up our pants,
Until the giraffes flee to row boats.

Please don't walk away in anger darling,
Exit gracefully like the evening's sunset,
Enter the scence starting with a dial tone,
Tightrope over these razorblade complications.
Cutting myself,
Almost every day,
Let it feel so real,
Let me taste the pain.

One day we'll live in igloos on the Galapagos,
'Till then let's remember the Atlantic air in-between our hands

I taught you how you hate,
You taught me how to love too.
This is how I lost my mind on you.

I taught you how you hate,
You taught me how to love too.
This is how I lost my mind on you.

I taught you how you hate,
You taught me how to love too.
This is how I lost my mind on you.

(The worms are moving,
The grass is growing,
Flowers are blooming,
The leaves are dropping,
The birds are chirping,
Clouds are forming,
The sun is burning,
Self medication never ends.)

I taught you how you hate,
You taught me how to love too.
This is how I lost my mind on you.

I taught you how you hate,
You taught me how to love too.
This is how I lost my mind on you.

I taught you how you hate,
You taught me how to love too.
This is how I lost my mind on you.

This is our final dance,
You taught me how to love and I taught you how to hate;
Everything is based off you.
Isn't it funny how we lost control,
Or how I lost my mind on you.
You

I taught you how you hate,
You taught me how to love too.
This is how I lost my mind on you.

I taught you how you hate,
You taught me how to love too.
This is how I lost my mind on you.

    General CommentThis one is easy yet hard. The first part is the hard part, he hints at being young, under age, and afraid.

    The second stanza hints at something is wrong with him or the relationship, perhaps an abortion? Or his suicidal tendencies. The third stanza also reinforces this idea with the notion of having to tell people about it.

    The next few stanzas are about him not wanting his partner to leave him, and then he goes into a few stanzas about the end of the world via a massive flood, but the backing vocals sing about how the world continues to go about its business, and its all in his mind. The rest of it is addresses to his partner, about their love.

    General CommentThis song is addictive He is breaking her heart He doesn't want to but is He had been walking around all their problems because he really loves this person
    Tightrope over these razorblade complications.
    Cutting myself,
    Almost every day,
    Let it feel so real,
    Let me taste the pain
    my favorite part is the end
    this is
    This is our final dance,
    You taught me how to love and I taught you how to hate;
    Everything is based off you.
    Isn't it funny how we lost control,
    Or how I lost my mind on you.
