"From A Mountain In The Middle Of The Cabins" as written by Brendon Boyd Urie, Spencer James Smith, Jonathan Jacob Walker and George Ryan Ross....
Lying there
With a halo in her hair she cried
There are feathers everywhere
But it's fine
You do this all the time

Crying now
Through a rusted smile she knows
This isn't how he paid the bills before
Drug farm entrepreneur

Go spin circles for me
Wound relentlessly
Around the words we used to sling
Oh, such torturous things
Always chewing up the only ones
I ever mean

If you're goin', then go
Go go go
If you're goin', then go
Go go go

Watch love
Get strangled by a kite's cold strings
Fall comes early and summer leaves
As a storm with the car keys

Spark your heels
Up against the picket fence I built
All your wishes they will sink like stones
Slowly down a lonely well

Go spin circles for me
Wound relentlessly
Around the words we used to sling
Oh, such torturous things
Always chewing up the only ones
I ever mean

If you're goin', then go
Go go go
If you're goin', then go
Go go go

    General CommentLying there
    With a halo in her hair she cried
    There are feathers everywhere
    But it's fine
    You do this all the time
    -a girl that was once very innocent is getting sucked into a world of drugs by a boyfriend, and shes high and seeing feathers

    Crying now
    Through a rusted smile she knows
    This isn't how he paid the bills before
    Drug farm entrepreneur
    -this kinda gives us a picture of thier earlier life, she used to be happy and he used to not be a drug dealer, but now they've both gotten mixed up in a different life and shes not high anymore and shes thinking about those days and shes crying

    Go spin circles for me
    Wound relentlessly
    Around the words we used to sling
    Oh, such torturous things
    Always chewing up the only ones
    I ever mean
    -the first 3 lines r kind of saying that they've been fighting and hes kind of amused by it "go spin circles for me", he enjoys watching her get mad, then hes saying that these fights and circles or w/e r messing up the words hes trying to say now and how its hurting the relationship

    If you're goin' then go
    Go go go
    -hes telling her to stop threatening to leave him and actually do it, but she cant b/c she loves him

    Watch love
    Get strangled by a kite's cold strings
    Fall comes early and summer leaves
    As a storm with the car keys
    -the first 2 lines r saying how the drugs ruined thier love, a kite is something that looks like fun, but the strings could wrap around u if ur not careful, so they thought the drugs would be fun, but the eventually ruined thier relationship, i think the 3rd line is like school sort of, summer is fun and everythings innocent, but fall comes fast and u go back to school where everythings dramatic and stressful and it really is depressing cuz ur thinking of how much fun summer was, then the last line kind of sounds mishchievous (i know i didnt spell that right!) the way brendon sings it, like she threw away his car keys one night when she was mad and said the storm blew em away!

    Song Meaning'Lying there
    With a halo in her hair she cried
    There are feathers everywhere
    But it's fine
    You do this all the time'

    Obviously, her lover is doing something or seeing someone and she has repeatedly told him to stop. Having given up on trying to change it, she just sits there and cries about it, and he does it all the time.

    'Crying now
    Through a rusted smile she knows
    This isn't how he paid the bills before
    Drug farm entrepreneur'

    The thing he's doing could possibly be gambling, and he's making money from it. She still cries from it, and she tries to hide her tears from him behind a fake or 'rusted' smile.

    'Go spin circles for me
    Wound relentlessly
    Around the words we used to sling
    Oh, such torturous things
    Always chewing up the only ones
    I ever mean'

    They used to talk a lot, and tell each other things, but now they are both hiding things from each other, putting stress on the relationship, but she would still do whatever he asked (like spinning circles). Also, his lies are making the meaning of his honesty meaningless.

    'If you're goin' then go
    Go go go
    If you're goin' then go
    Go go go'

    If he's going to leave her, she just wants him to do it and get it over with, rather than dragging it out.

    'Watch love
    Get strangled by a kite's cold strings
    Fall comes early and summer leaves
    As a storm with the car keys'

    The romance between the two is slowly falling apart, leaving 'early'.

    'Spark your heels
    Up against the picket fence I built
    All your wishes they will sink like stones
    Slowly down a lonely well'

    All the hopes and wishes she had for the relationship are becoming less and less probable, 'sinking', if you will.

    General CommentLying there with a halo in her hair she cried, there are feathers everywhere but it’s fine.
    You do this all the time.
    Crying now, through a rusted smile she knows this isn’t how he paid the bills before.
    Drug farm entrepreneur.
    Go spin circles for me, wound relentlessly around the words we used to sling.
    OH such torturous things always chewing up the only ones.
    I ever mean.
    If you’re going then go.
    Watch love get strangled by a kite’s cold strings.
    Fall comes early and summer leaves as a storm with the car keys.
    Spark your heels up against the picket fence I built.
    All your wishes they will sink like stones slowly down a lonely well.

    General Comment"Lying there with a halo in her hair she cried, there are feathers everywhere but it's fine. You do this all the time." Seems like an angel fallen from grace. Maybe she viewed her life as perfect (heavenly), but he keeps bringing her back to the shitty reality. It also seems like him and this girl fight a lot during this song, and he says a lot of hurtful things he doesn't mean. They have kind of an abusive relationship it seems.

    "Oh such torturous thing always chewing up the only ones I ever mean." The bad things he does on the side just cancel out any of the sweet things he says to her (including whenever he tells her he loves her). She's had enough so she threatens to go, but it's hard for her. "If you're going then go, go, go, go." He's almost taunting her in this part, but he knows she won't leave.
