"Teeth The Size Of Piano Keys" as written by and Owens Mcmanaman....
I dropped all of my lovers
And I stood up and screamed, I'm in love

You gave it to me through the eyes, hatred
Centuries deep and true
I was wrong, graceless and sick
All of the things that I had learned had been wasted

There was no living creature as foul as I
And all of my poems were false
I could feel my soul dropping down through the mattress
I had to leap up before it hit the floor and I'm so alone

Illumination held out in front of my reaching arms
The darker things get the better I say
I'm so alone and so are you
We all live and die that way

You gave it to me through the eyes, hatred
Centuries deep and true
I was wrong, graceless and sick
All of the things that I had learned had been wasted

There was no living creature as foul as I
And all of my poems were false
There was no living creature as foul as I
I could feel my soul dropping down
I could feel my soul dropping down

    General CommentIdk if this is accurate but I'm reading "Slaughterhouse-Five" by Kurt Vonnegut n there's a line on pg. 64 that says, "The reserves were violent, windburned, bristly men. THEY HAD TEETH LIKE PIANO KEYS." i almost jumped out of my seat in English class after i read that. Idk if Craig is an avid reader but nonetheless, i thought it was a good call on their part to title the song after the craziest book i've ever read in my life

    General Commentthe intro to this song is amazinv and diverse. but ti think the song is touching on things that have gone wrong and the person knows how bad it really is but cant fix it since it says the darker things bet the better i see its portraying an image that states he is amost attracted do his bad ways and that he lives that way and will die that way

    General Commenti think this song is about finally finding the right girl and asking her to be their gf and she must have turned him down
    and about the last verse, maybe it means they realize they want each other now but it may be too late?

    General Commenti think its about this girl he fell in love with while he was still dating other chicks. and then she found out and dropped him. so he cut the other girls off so he could be with her cause he was really in love with that girl. but she doesnt care anymore. so now after all that he's all alone.
