"Black Eye" as written by and Jack Antonoff....
Oh, black eye, you show me in a painting
A buildings in chrome
Well, don't take that pill and I'll take you home
Oh, I said come on and realize one day you're gonna die

Oh, break free, we'll be back before the weekday
Your dad will never know
That you took the pill and I saw the road
When the chemicals are in, I said, one day you're gonna die

Oh, blow up, well, I got a miracle
And you wanna know why
You are a home and I am on fire
When the chemicals are in, I said, one day you're gonna die

Black eye, you hit, black eye, on me
I said, and I am your trampoline
I am your tra-tra-tra-trampoline

Oh, black eye, you show me in a painting
A buildings in chrome
Well, don't take that pill ?cause I'll take you home
Oh, I said come on and realize that we can never die

Black eye, you hit, black eye, on me
I said, take the pill and I'll watch you sleep
Drive all night and you let me free
I said, I'll tell you one more time you're never gonna be
I am your trampoline

    General Commentmusically, i really love this song.
    the do-do-do.. (if you know what i mean)
    part of this song.. its just fun to sing along.
    and then it gets continued in the guitar part.

    tell me if i'm wrong..
    its about sucide attempt?
    or a friend who is attempting suicide?

    My InterpretationI see it as a relationship where the one person
    is always there for the other, helping them "bounce back"
    when they've possibly attempted suicide and really anytime
    they're bummed. They want them to know that they're there for
    them to fall back on.
