The path has changed so much over the years.
No reason to fret, just turn around and walk away.
The glass of wine and the plate of overcooked food burnt too long. ...Paranoid about a fuck me dress.
Relishing in memories, twisting like fate.
It's only a matter of time before this is destroyed.
The bridges are too low to duck under and the fenced in possibilites seem too dark to see without candlelight.
Because years have passed, visions have also.
Down under there's a devil, and no one notices.
Above us are clouds that swing and hang down over a small town.
Obstruction of vision is nullified by the elevation of the seats.
An orchestra pit down under like Australia that catches fire from a match.
The path has changed so much over the years.
Slimy, sticky leaves cling like leaches.
No reason to fret, just turn around and walk away.
The glass of wine and the plate of overcooked food.
I'll never run away again.
I missed this

    General Commenthmmmm not realy sure but im thinking maybe like someone was in something (not sure what, maybe a certain group or something like that?) but then it changed or they felt they were out of place so they in a manner, left ti or "ran away" and then realized where they went they were out of place and where they had started was where they belonged.

    but then again some lines just don't make sense to me... like the "paranoid about a fuck-me dress" and the "slimy, sticky leaves cling like leaches"
    and also the title is misleading too

    but other than that thats what it really seems like to me.

    General Commentpersonally, i think this song seems to be about how the world is changed in the relationship sense because girls or guys can be whores. the whole nice dinner thing, which always had a lot of effort in it, especially to impress the other person, but now in the world everyone cares about sex more than a good relationship.

    General Commentjasonbaroni has a point, this is about the change of the relationship. Today, IMO, an act as simple as a kiss has no emotional attachment. People get drunk,
    hook up afterwards, and that's that... "No reason to fret, just turn around and walk away."

    the nice dinner used to be a romantic effort but now its just part of the sex routine (sometimes)

    "Down under there's a devil, and no one notices."

    I love that line. I don't know what #12's views on ethics are and stuff, but I like to interpret that line as people in this society have become so undisciplined, they don't know right from wrong.

    But then again, right and wrong is in the eye of the beholder, right?

    General CommentThere's something about the title, I'd like to share with you. In Kurt Vonegut's Hocus Pocus there's a guy named Lyle Hooper who runs a place called the Black Cat Café. This is some sort of bar, but in the alley behind the Café there are a couple of vans with prostitute's working for Hooper. So the whole Black Cat Café is basically just a brothel or a cover-up for a brothel and everyone in town knows about it, but they all treat Hooper as if he was a decent and respectable citizen. And Hooper himself acts as if he is just that. Never admitting to anyone, not even to himself, that his place is actually what is considered by the larger amount of society something filthy and obscene.
    So... at one point in the story there is a prison break with hundreds of convicts storming the city, shooting people and taking a lot of citizens hostage, among them Lyle Hooper. Unlike the rest of the town, the prisoners are perfectly aware of how Lyle Hooper earns the main amount of his income and when they refer to him, they always use the word 'pimp'. Although the prisoners threaten to kill Hooper, it's not the fear of death that bothers him the most, it's being called a 'pimp'. But when they finally decide to execute him, his last words, while he's brought outside to be shot in the yard, are: "OK, I admit it. It really was a whorehouse."

    So... I thought this might be interesting, since it seems to me #12 got the song title from that novel. It's a really good book by the way, though not my favorite from Vonnegut.
