"Faces" as written by Aaron James Babcock, Collin Rigsby, Timothy Ryan Skipper and Jared Keith Rigsby....
I'm in love with the faces,
Of a thousand nameless girls.
I'm in love with the chases,
For the unattainable.
I'm in love but I'm tasteless,
I only want what's bad for me.
I'm in love with a waitress,
If only I could drink for free.

Shot down, shot down,
I'm blacking out.
Shot down, shot down.
Shot down, shot down,
I can't get out.
Shot down, shot down.
A death wish come true.

I'm in love but I'm tasteless,
I only want what's bad for me.
I'm in love with the spaces, with the spaces in between.
So I'll dream,
Oh what a dream can do, it's true.

Shot down, shot down,
I'm blacking out.
Shot down, shot down.
Shot down, shot down,
I can't get out.
Shot down, shot down.
A death wish come true.

I'll dream until my dream comes true,
I'll dream until my dream comes true,
I'll dream until my dream comes true,
I'll dream until my dream comes true,
Then I'll be blue again.
Then I'll be blue,
Then I'll be blue,
Then I'll be blue,
Then I'll be blue

Shot down, shot down,
I'm blacking out.
Shot down, shot down.
Shot down, shot down,
I can't get out.
Shot down, shot down.

Shot down, shot down,
I'm blacking out.
Shot down, shot down.
Shot down, shot down,
I can't get out.
Shot down, shot down.
A death wish come true,
A death wish come true.

    General CommentI talked to Tim Skipper about this song when they were on their album tour at a little venue in Ames, Iowa. He said they wrote the song about a friend they had growing up that moved back in with his parents after a couple years on his own. He wanted everything good in life to happen to him, but didn't want to lift a finger to do any of it. A depressed guy who daydreams that his dreams will come true, but knows they won't; and then when the daydream is over, he'll be depressed again. "Dream until my dream comes true; Then I'll be blue again."

    General CommentHm. "The shot down, shot down, I'm blacking out" is interesting. I always thought it was shut down shut down.

    So is it likening a hopeless romatic to a war-fighting pilot?

    My InterpretationIt seems like a song about falling in love with the idea of falling in love, rather than the actual person- or falling for them physically, but not making that emotional leap. "Shot down"= rejected. It's a figure of speech. The speaker is feeling blue because what they are doing to find love isn't working, since they're going about it wrong.
