"Buffalo Gals" as written by and Buckley Williams....
We're making habits out of vanities and gospel for the stalls
But the less you breathe the more you see of it all

The lions share is courting the teen
One hand holds them back while the other is holding me
We don't connect though we're both disconnected

Oh, oh yeah, we're so in love or else we're waving
The unloaded guns in the air but it's the same thing, ain't it?

I'm only here to give you someone to leave when you get bored
But the first mistake so good it'll only ensure another

Oh, oh yeah, you look so good or you're just saving
Your flaws for the tight lipped lover but it's the same thing, ain't it?

We're lost, profound
And we are bound by the secrets we keep from each other
We're lost, profound
And we are bound by the secrets we keep from each other

Pick up your heels dig down in
It don't matter when the void is ravenous
It's too late for us now anyway
It's too late for us now, it's too late for us now
This confession is a lost cause we got dead before we arrive

We're making habits out of vanities and gospel for the stalls
So grab your old lady and dance into the breach
Yeah, let's dance one more time into the breach

Oh, oh yeah, we're so in love or else we're waving
Unloaded guns into the air but it's the same thing, ain't it?

Divine light sparks from a severed wire
So we hit the town like our parachutes failed
Divine light sparks from a severed wire
So we hit the town like our parachutes failed

We're lost, profound
And we are bound by the same dichotomy

    General Comment"Buffalo Girls is a 1990 novel written by American author Larry McMurtry about Calamity Jane (Martha Jane Canary, 185?-1903). It is written in the novel prose style mixed with a series of letters from Calamity Jane to her daughter. In her letters, Calamity describes herself as being a drunken hellraiser but never an outlaw. Her letters also describe her larger-than-life cohorts.
    McMurtry's ability for characterization and storytelling shines as he depicts gritty events and relationships in the life of fur trappers, cowboys, soldiers, prostitutes, and Indians as the Wild West fades away changing their way of life. The characters struggle, and many fail, to adapt to the settling of the West. In an effort to adapt and relive the Wild West, many of the characters, along with Calamity Jane, resort to performing in Bill Cody's Wild West show. They exploit and are exploited by their frontier lifestyle, before being defeated by it in the end."

    I think this song is a reflection of similarities, that he's in a relationship with someone who prides herself on living extravagantly. In the end he knows that her lifestyle will ruin her, but he's rather cynical and almost indifferent.

    My 2 cents!

    General Commentthis songs sooooo kick ass! the majority of the songs chords are lil on the melodic, kinda happy, upbeat end. and then around 2.45 the chords are dropped an octave, or something, and it makes it so heavy sounding! i love it! i dunno if thats for sure what happens there lol but i know something does, and whatever it is i could listen to i t over, and over, and over just for that part lol

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the song is about a guy and a girl who are together for no real reason other then to say they're together. a relationship with no attraction or love basically.
