"Unexpected Places" as written by William Beckett, Michael Guy Chislett, Andy Mrotek and Michael Carden....
Don't try and tell me you've been looking at me.
Cause I've been looking at you.
And I can read what you think. Yea.
Don't cut no corners when you're talking to me.
Like I don't know how it is,
But I can see all of it.

We always have to wait (wait)
By the choice we had to make. (make)
You sold yourself so short,
Is this the way to carry on?
In the most unexpected places

Don't try and tell me you've been thinking of us,
Cause I will never believe you now you're shit out of luck, yeah.
Don't cut no corners when you're looking at me.
Like you don't know how it is

We always have to wait (wait)
By the choice we had to make. (make)
You sold yourself so short,
Is this the way to carry on?
In the most unexpected places

We always have been caged
By the choices we make.
You sold yourself so short.
Is that the way to carry on?
In the most unexpected places. I see changes.
In the most unexpected places, I see changes.
We sold ourselves so short.
Is this the way to carry on?
Is this the way to carry on?

    General CommentHey, PARALESS, this song does not suck!
    I'm not deaf.
    You are.
    This song is awesome.
    If you have something bad to say, at least say it in a more peaceful manner.
    Gawrsh, don't people have manners anymore?
    What if someone who was blind told you that you were ugly?
    Yeah.
    Bite that.
    Eat that.
    Suck that.

    Burn.

    General Commentyes, it is on santi. and i honestly do not know about this album, but the first half of the song really is relatable. it reminded me of the end of the college application process and going to college, but i only think that's because of the position i'm in at the moment. i highly doubt that is what the song is really about. i think it's about decisions in general and having to stnd by them, even when we made an unfavourable choice. i think the ending relates back to once we've made the decision and whether or not we can fix it by taking a chance and making other choices or if we just have to tought it out and wait it out.

    General Commentsounds something along the lines of a cheater in a relationship.

    "Don't cut no corners when you're talking to me
    Like I don't know how it is but I can see it"

    the girl thinks he is oblivious to what is going on, trying to coat it with lies. etc.

    any other ideas?

    General CommentThe way he sings a lot of this really reminds me of Claudio Sanchez from Coheed and Cambria for some reason. I think because of the way he throws in high pitched "yeahs" and "woahs" and "ohs" when he sings and has such unique enunciation.

    General CommentHave you ever passed up an amazing event? Made the stupidest mistake ever? Want to go back in time and fix what you've done wrong? I think this is what this is about. That one choice we made that we just always want to go back and fix. It also talks about how we are judged by the choices we've made as well. Someone decides to drive after getting drunk, great person, great athlete, well liked, and he/she gets busted and the rest of their life is ruined, all because of that one choice. Our life is ruled by these choices "We always have been caged by the choices that we made."
