It’s follow the leader, baby
That’s how it’s gonna be
If you ever really wanna get lost
Then follow me

Follow the leader

We’re in a solar system
Together and alone
The bills, the smoke, the furniture
The happy home

Now you can follow your gut
Or you can follow the past
But if you knew an eclipse was coming
Why’d you even ask?

Follow the leader

Ghost verse -
(there’s brighter days ahead
I’ve seen them on tv
Word is there’s something big
Hidden up their sleeve)

So maybe it gets quiet
And maybe it gets numb
At least then there’s still something
To share with someone

Follow the leader

    General CommentI agree with it being an amazing song. But I don't think this is a happy song at all, I guess if you could say focusing on the good as seeing that everyone in that song is miserable but they are miserable together.
    What I take from this song is follow the lost unhappy leader and they will take you with them but hey at least everyone will be unhappy together.
    "if you ever really wanted to get lost then follow me." to -->
    "the bills the smoke the furniture the happy home." (sarcastic happy home)
    "so maybe it gets quiet
    and maybe it gets numb
    at least then there's still something
    to share with someone." (lets be miserable together)

    General Commentjust an amazing song.
    i think it's about holding on, and focusing on the good things, rather than the bad.
    probably wayyy off but that's what i get from this.
    "So maybe it gets quiet
    And maybe it gets numb
    At least then there’s still something
    To share with someone".

    General CommentAmazing song. I think it is about a couple going through a very rough time in their marriage. I think the wife just told him she is having an affair with someone else...and she is trying to decide between her husband and the other guy. The singer is saying...follow the leader...choose whoever is the frontrunner, but you should choose me...cause i'm the one who loves you. "if you ever really want to get lost, then follow me". He is thinking to himself, i hear that couples can get through something like this....but he is doubtful. He is very miserable thinking about it. But he still wants her. He is saying PICK ONE, I"m not perfect, "I said what i said what i said" ...pick one, wanting her deep down to pick him, but he is depressed and can't even think about it.
