"Guts" as written by and Pat Harter Seth Trotter....
The consequence of a child
The mild months of worthwhile
No mess? you better decide
With grace but not by design
She smokes like guns to the world
Will catch your moderate slur
And sing your modern love song
But wish you died anyway
Now gone I'm gonna get you for that
Get you more like a chance
Some more of a guts to the wall
The guts that cut through your lungs
Every breath takes a sound
You're deciding on them all

I felt like I would learn to fly the pattern you were aiming for
You feel like time is not all necessary, but my mind would
I come around so much less without you, without you
I can't breathe

The consequence of a child
The mild months of worthwhile
No mess? you better decide
With grace but not by design
She smokes like guns to the world
Will catch your moderate slur
And sing your modern love song
But wish you died anyway
Now gone I'm gonna get you for that
Get you more like a chance
Some more of a guts to the wall
The guts that cut through your lungs
Every breath takes a sound
You're deciding on them all

I felt like I would learn to fly the pattern you were aiming for
You feel like time is not all necessary, but my mind would
I come around so much less without you, without you
I can't breathe

I can only think that you would be unhappy for me after all the silly shit we've been through
I can only hope that life would be so lax and so free when the mornings catch you more than before
I would only hope that everything would come back to you just to say you wanted me too
I would be the one to let you catch up and go through, go through

I felt like I would learn to fly the pattern you were aiming for
You feel like time is not all necessary, but my mind would
I come around so much less without you, without you
I can't breathe

    I love how he sings that, he sounds so angry, it's prefect.

    and yeah i think it's aboout someone getting pregnant, just from the line "the consequence of a child"

    The girl is pregnant, having a baby could be worthwhile but it could mess things up as well. She has to decide
    with grace, and not be design. (I think he's implying that having an abortion would be best)

    "She smokes like guns to the world
    Will catch your moderate slur
    And sing your modern love song
    But wish you died anyway"

    Doesn't sound like a very suitable mother.

    "Every breath takes a sound
    You're deciding on them all"

    She's suicidal, but she's made the decision to stay alive. He's trying to convince her that she's doing ok.

    "I felt like I would learn to fly the pattern you were aiming for
    You feel like time is not all necessary, but my mind would
    I come around so much less without you, without you
    I can't breathe"
    She's a state, but he needs her. He wants to try to live the way she wants to, but it doesn't work for him either, but he can't cope without her.



    My interpretion. Not sure if its right.

    My InterpretationFrom what i understand about this song (which isnt much of it) is that its about a girl and a guy who have a kind and the girl has the upper hand in the realtionship and she doesnt want to keep the kind but the guy does.

    ...but i could be completely off
