The car crashed but everybody was okay
But that don't mean we're gonna have to stay
So c'mon, I'm ready to go when you're done
Let's trash this place before we run
And if we both fall down
Another train will come around
Packed with others getting lost and found

By now we're finishing each other's thoughts
Everyone else seems to want what we've got
But I'm not afraid to say goodbye
As long as someone else has caught my eye
Everyone's a dove when they fall in love
The roses cover up the old debris
Keeping their eyes down
Until they can't ignore the sound
Of all the others getting lost and found

We all have hearts so pure
But some hearts can't endure
The iridescent light of folly's lure
We give in to the sound
Of that old train coming 'round
Packed with others getting lost and found

    General Commentbreaking up and finding someone new.

    i believe he's primarily suggesting falling for someone while you're with or just getting over someone. the first chorus talks about hard times and struggles in a relationship. when the writer talks about the "car crash" not meaning "we're gonna have to stay" he implies that getting through hard times together doesn't necessarily mean you're meant to be.
    it's about not being completely given to one another. he doesn't want a love that exists simply because he's used to his partner (finishing each other's thoughts) nor outside appearance and show (everyone else...)
    at the point where lost and found comes out, it really makes a beautiful analogy. like a train station - constant exchange of people from one place to another.
    the last few lines of the song are my favorite. "the iridescent light of folly's lure" is referring to the lure of something new, something different, something like a new love affair.
    it's my favorite ola podrida song i think...
