"Spores" as written by and Max Bemis....
I was watching Demolition Man
And talking dirty to a fan who likes my band
When I took a chance and called you up
You said you'd visit but you just don't give a fuck
So I had to put you in your place
And leave a look of shame upon your face
Stood accused for the last two years
I got off, I got off, I got off

[Chorus]
But I
Still miss you more, I miss you more than I
Ever did before you left your spores inside
Of my empty core, a baby's got your eyes
Now I miss you more, I miss you more tonight

Then you threw me up against the wall
The city shook to meet our mating call
All the anger and the pain poured forth
The act itself defied the blessed source
When you were finished you were done with me
And you explained it wasn't meant to be
I should've known it when you howled his name
You got off, you got off, you got off

[Chorus]

I miss you more tonight
I miss you more tonight
I miss you more tonight
I miss you more tonight

You know I still know how, how much your love costs (alright)
You know when I peel back your layered lip gloss (alright)
You know I still know how to fuck your eyes crossed (alright)
It's your loss
It's your loss

    General CommentI think this song is a direct embodiment of the confusion that comes from hooking up with an ex. The song itself even seems kind of schizo, with the aggressive verses and the soft choruses.

    In the first verse, he calls his ex up, and when she effectively blows him off, he gets even by starting this cat and mouse flirting thing, both playing hard to get. He's acting as if he can handle just a hookup with his ex.

    Then in the chorus, he reveals that maybe he really does still care for her, and being with her again is making him miss her even more. He's figuratively drowning in her. It's sortof a losing situation because he feels happier when he's with her (left your spores inside of my empty core) and everything reminds him of her (our baby's got your eyes) but he knows that things are not the same.

    Verse 2, they finally hook up, and it's violent, angry, and frustrated, essentially because he loves her, and because she's just getting off. All of the pain of their breakup with the added sexual tension caused by the aforementioned makes this hook up like a tidal wave. She then explains to him she doesn't want him, and it was just a physical thing, because she's infatuated with another.

    in the next chorus, he admits that even after that, he still loves her, but he feels used, and cheap (your gaze adorned the whore you left behind)

    And it ends with his anger, and and jealousy that she still left him even after he gave her everything he had to offer.

    General CommentOkay, so after hearing Say Anything's new songs, I was a little disappointed at the change in style - they suddenly got "trendy". Regardless, I really do like this song. Max has always been really good at writing really bitter and/or sad breakup songs.

    "You know I still know how, how much your love costs.
    You know when I peel back your layered lip gloss.
    You know I still know how to fuck your eyes crossed.
    It's your loss.
    It's your loss."

    And I LOVE that part. You can't have a Say Anything song without some reference to sex. Haha.
