"Iron in the Backseat" as written by and Call Choi....
I'll pretend I'm deep asleep before she burns the skin beneath my sleeves.
She's not convinced when I try to keep a straight face when we kiss.
And no one comes to bed to sleep
You said you said when you talk in your sleep, oh.
I want to run but you've got the gun pointed right at me.

Won't you believe me?
Oh, believe me tonight.
You've got control but I don't mind.

Call us out on our mistakes.
Call them all just fun and games.
We act and react all over again but it's all the same.
And if you ever find yourself a mile,
Or two away from my place won't you stop for a while
And kill me while I'm sleepin, love?

I'm not afraid to make the same mistakes that you made, oh.
Come on don't keep me waiting,
I know where this is going.
We fall apart without intentions,
But I can't deny that I didn't think of that, oh.
You never mean to but you've got me tied so tightly to your wrists.

Call us out on our mistakes.
Call them all just fun and games.
We act and react all over again but it's all the same.
And if you ever find yourself a mile,
Or two away from my place won't you stop for a while
And kill me while I'm sleepin, love?

If you ever want some trouble,
But can't afford the alcohol.
I'll be here, I'll be here waiting.
I'll be here waiting for you.

Call us out on our mistakes.
Call them all just fun and games.
We act and react all over again but it's all the same.
And if you ever find yourself a mile,
Or two away from my place won't you stop for a while
And kill me while I'm sleepin, love?

    General Commenti love this song.
    their booklet says, though, for the chorus:

    call us out on our mistakes
    call them all just fun and games
    we act and react all over again but it's all the same
    and if you ever find yourself a mile
    or two away from my place won't you stop for a while
    and kill me while i'm sleepin, love?

    General Commentto me, this song is about a boy and a girl *shockerrrr*

    they have a fatal attraction to each other, he's always bound to be broken by her, and she's the same way. they can't get enough of each other even though they both know its doomed.

    and people are just sayin that their makeup/breakup cycle is them having fun, but they seriously do care for each other...they just keep screwing up. so right now they're apart, but if she ever does come back into his life, he'd be willing to see her again and maybe give it another go.

    General Commentno no no,
    you've got it all wrong. to me this is about someone who cant get away from something. for example, "i want to run but youve got the gun pointed right at me" .
    see, when he says -shes not convinced when i try to keep a straight face when we kiss- it basically means to me that he doesnt really liike her, he just cant get away from her . thats what i think,,
    !@#$%

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who is in a relationship with a girl he doesn't like but stays anyways because he can't get over how physically attractive she is. Thus the "gun" is her sex appeal and he knows just being with her for the physical aspect is not good but he is too addicted.

    "no one comes to bed to sleep" is also a reference to sex.

    he says "kill me while I'm sleeping because he knows he is using her and it's wrong so he wishes he could end it.

    "If you ever want some trouble,
    But can't afford the alcohol.
    I'll be here" - that to me sounds like he is ready for a one night stand any time
