"Eggshells" as written by and Landon Pigg....
Dodging dried vomit on the sidewalk as I walk
I'm singing some stupid song I heard on the radio
Strolling down the most important street in Nashville

Holding in my left hand the weak man's hammer
I always keep an extra set of nails in case I break one
But nothing ever seems to get broken in my world

That's just the problem with me these days
I'm walking on eggshells
Nothing ever goes wrong and nothing ever goes right
I don't know how to get help
I'm walking on eggshells

And I can't feel a thing
And nothing ever happens to me

Nothing in this world it seems can sweep me off my feet
Everything's amazing, but only in theory
Someone help me cause I'm losing it quietly

That's just the problem with me these days
I'm walking on eggshells
Nothing ever goes wrong and nothing ever goes right
I don't know how to get help
And everything is perfect
But nothing ever moves me
Nothing ever goes wrong and nothing ever goes right
Give me feathers or give me nails
I'm walking on eggshells

You might be the one for me but I will never know
I can't fall in love if I've fallen asleep
Will I ever wake up?
I'm walking on eggshells

Nothing ever goes wrong and nothing ever goes right
I don't know how to get help
And everything is perfect
But nothing ever moves me
Nothing ever goes wrong and nothing ever goes right
Give me feathers or give me nails
I'm walking on eggshells

Give me feathers or give me nails
I'm walking on eggshells

Everything is perfect
I can't feel a thing
Everything is perfect

    General CommentOh, and I just remembered that "the weak man's hammer" is a guitar, if anyone needs that cleared up.

    Clever Pigg, huh ?

    General CommentI love this song esp. "I'm singing some stupid song I heard on the radio". The meaning is pretty clear though. He performed this song on Carson Daly's show the other day and I heard he's really good live...

    General CommentThis song kind of reminds me of the movive garden state- because he was essentially in some kind of coma and everything is the same...

    I really like this song-- it's one of my favorites from Landon

    General CommentIt's my favorite song by him -- so far. I can't wait until the next one comes out.

    So basically he wants things to change. Nothing is a problem and everything is perfect because there's nothing going on that could change that or influence it. The feathers and nails represent the extremes that he's willing to take in order for things to go back to normal -- like, "have something good or bad happen to me, I just want something to be different here !"
    ...
    Haha.
