I know how you are with these things
And your not gonna stop
I know how you are
Yeah your an artist
When you tear things apart
Oh

I think its when your friends
(Dont think that you know)
Twist the knife in your back
And im still giving into it

I dont think that you know
I can assure that you dont
And there is nothing that I can say, To you, To soothe...To you To soothe.

Im pressing my luck
On the neck of regret
And distress
Cause its not like its our favorite thing
Dont you dare forget dont you dare forget
That nothing with meaning is easy

Its so easy
To vomit the words
and choke.

Bloooooooooooood


You've never seen a machine
Like this before
Yeah yeah yeah
Whoa whoa whoa ohhoho whoa

Im pressing my luck
On the neck of regret
And distress
Cause its not like its our favorite thing and
Don't you dare
And don't you dare forget
And don't you dare forget
That nothing with meaning is easy easy

You've never seen a machine like this
It devours devours the flowers
The flowers
The flowers are fake
The flowers are fake
The flowers are fake
Yeah yeah yeah
Whoa whoa whoa ohhoho whoa

Cause Im gone goodbye yeah
Cause Im gone goodbye yeah

    General Commentwell as much as your interpretaion makes sense i talked to tino the other day( the drummer) and he said its about how the weatherman is a really trusted figure that everyone relies on but he could be a completly different person off camera.

    General CommentI tried my bext but in the song sometimes it is hard to understand what Matt is saying. Also I think this is a break up song.

    General CommentI have revised it with Lower Definitions edits so yes this is the correct version of The Weatherman song.

    General Commentthis song is about the band. the break-ups and losses that they've had
    i.e: "the flowers are fake" & "nothing with meaning is easy"

    & how they're going to come back stronger and be better
    i.e: "you've never seen a machine like this before"

    General Commentyeah i see that totally. i mean sometimes you have to look at the title and it will make more sense. still as an artist you try leave it open ended so it can be interpreted differently depending on the reader. it's funnnnn. :]

    General Commenti think this songs message is kinda like "dont judge a book by its cover" ithink this because
    1. the title, just like edgey said a weatherman appears as a honest, trusted, figure. when in reality he could be a total douche
    2. "the flowers are fake" can be compared to a girl, and even though this girl is really freaking hot on the outside, on the inside she's a lying, backstabbing bitch hense the lines "I know how you are
    Yeah your an artist
    When you tear things apart" and "Its so easy
    To vomit the words
    and choke.
    Bloooooooooooood"

    3 "You've never seen a machine like this
    It devours devours the flowers" ...i think that he is the machine and he has the ability to see through her lies.

    4."Cause Im gone goodbye yeah" means tht he left her ass..simple as that

    ...pretty much i think this song is just about a girl who really wasnt what she seemed to be, and he figured that out and left her ass. at least. thats what i think

    My InterpretationI moved recently and "the special someone" sent me this verses from that song:

    "And don't you dare forget
    That nothing with meaning is easy easy"

    So I guess that, yes, it can be a break up song. But still, he is giving some kind of hope that it may be hard but is worth it. because it has a stronger meaning. because it matters. that's my point of view. (:
