"Mason's Revenge" as written by and James Anthony Buddy Nielsen Heath Matthew Saraceno....
You wore a summer dress
I wore my Sunday’s best
We were a pair that night
We dined like royalty
Kissing beneath the tree
We drank all the bottles dry

And then you said
"Diamonds are girl's best friend"
I turned my head
I bit my lip and bit my lip again

That night I closed my eyes
Swimming through all my lies
In my regret, I laid, I turned to kiss your cheek
Your body was grieving
You opened your eyes and said
"We need to talk", my story gets it’s wish tonight

I feel all the blood rush away from my face
When you said you can't do this
I plead my case and I'm sorry for running away
I feel all the blood rush away from my face
When you said you can't do this
I plead my case and I'm sorry for running away

I need a drink like a fish out of water
My head is spinning around
I don't know what to do
My pillows smell like you
I see you in every mirror

I feel all the blood rush away from my face
When you said you can't do this
I plead my case and I'm sorry for running away
I feel all the blood rush away from my face
When you said you can't do this
I plead my case and I'm sorry for running away

I need you like fire needs oxygen
I need you like fire needs oxygen
One last kiss
(Like fire needs oxygen)
Before you go
(Like fire needs oxygen)
One last kiss before you go

I feel all the blood rush away from my face
When you said you can't do this
I plead my case and I'm sorry for running away
I feel all the blood rush away from my face
When you said you can't do this
I plead my case and I'm sorry for running away

    General Comment What about the fact that they were drunk!
    (We drank all the bottles dry)

    She brings up marriage while she is drunk, he bites his lip in disbelief because he says he bites himself twice, to make sure he's not dreaming. later he tries to kiss her and she rejects him. and when she says "we need to talk" classic break up. the chorus is him getting dumped. she says "I can't do this." he pleas his case. (please stay or something. to convince her to stay.) and he apologizes for just running away because he can't take it.

    When he says he sees her in every mirror, its like he sees her in himself. he can't look at himself without looking at her.

    General CommentSome of the lines make me think it's about an engagement.

    "You wore a summer dress,
    I wore my Sunday’s best.
    We were a pair, that night."

    But the next line seems to imply that the girl wants to get married but the boy isn't ready.

    "And then you said,
    "Diamonds are girl's best friend."
    I turned my head.
    I bit my lip, and bit my lip again."

    General CommentI think it means they were on a romantic date when she began talking about marriage. He wasn't ready. Then I think since he wasn't ready for marriage, then she didn't want to be with him.

    I love this song however.
    I'm glad I have the Still Searching Deluxe Edition.

    get it.

    General CommentI agree with miki-kiwa about the engagement/ marriage thing b/c he says "I'm sorry for running away" But I also think it COULD mean that the girl is taking advantage of his fame and is after materialistic things, like diamonds. Because if he needed her "like fire needs oxygen" he's saying that he cannot exist without her. And if that's true, then why wouldn't he marry her?

    General Commentum..
    it sounds more like
    "my stomach turns and twists to knots"
    instead of
    "my story get's it's wish tonight"
    great song...buddy rules and senses kicks the living shit out of all other bands :D

    General CommentI interprit this song completly differently. I think the song switches up between his point of view and her point of view. The frist stanza is obviously from his pov. but the second one is him popping the question to her and she tuns her had and bites her lip and starts thinking about alll the lies she's told him, like the rest of the cd is about her breakin up with him and all the times she had lied to him. And the when she tells him we need to talk. Then the rest of the song is how he feels when she breaks up with him and how bad he needs her and misses her!!!
