Untie me, I've said no vows
The train is getting way too loud
I gotta leave here my girl
Get on with my lonely life
Just leave the ring on the rail
For the wheels to nullify

Until this turn in my head
I let you stay and you paid no rent
I spent twelve long months on the lam
That's enough sitting on the fence
For the fear of breaking dams

I find a fatal flaw
In the logic of love
And go out of my head
You love a sinking stone
That'll never elope
So get used to the lonesome
Girl, you must atone some
Don't leave me no phone number there

It took me all of the year
To put the poison pill to your ear
But now I stand on honest ground, on honest ground
You want to fight for this love
But honey you cannot wrestle a dove
So baby it's clear

You want to jump and dance
But you sat on your hands
And lost your only chance
Go back to your hometown
Get your feet on the ground
And stop floating around

I find a fatal flaw
In the logic of love
And go out of my head
You love a sinking stone
That'll never elope
So get used to used to the lonesome
Girl, you must atone some
Don't leave me no phone number there

    General CommentThe hell? No one's commented on this? I think it's basically from the viewpoint of a fiancee who's always had commitment issues, and is now telling his lover to leave him... Pretty straightforward.

    I love the lyric:
    "I find a fatal flaw
    In the logic of love
    And go out of my head"
    Because it's just the base frustration of the human condition in regards to being loved and being in love, that there's a serious problem with it...

    General Comment"I spent twelve long months on the lam"
    i think it's "land" not "lam"

    i like how it's blunt and harsh because too many songs are mushy mashy these days i think. it's so true to life as well.

    General CommentGod...... I don't know what to say about how much I truly love this band. This is one of my more favorite songs because of the way he bounces the lyrics through the melody, and that raise in pitch of his voice starting with "I find a fatal flaw".

    General Commenti think its fairly straight forward, this guy has been with this girl for a while and has been possibly falling out of love with her and wants her to just leave him.

    General CommentHow odd, I've read the lyrics but I have that song labeled as "Gone for good".

    General CommentThis is the same song as Gone for Good. They changed titles and slightly changed the lyrics.

    General Commenton the land? Na-uh. Lam means on the run - makes way more sense.

    General Comment"Just leave the ring on the rail
    For the wheels to nullify"

    To me, this means that someone is telling his wife or fiance to let their relationship end by metaphorically letting the train destroy their ring.
