I'm so scared, I just can't go anymore
I keep patching my roof up
Still, the rain falls on my side of the door
Now my hardwood floor
It swells and it moans like it hurts
And when night comes around
I can hear it pray to the earth

How'd you let me get sewed down?
How'd you let me get sewed down?
How'd you let me get sewed down, like I deserve?
I deserve

It don't feel bad, deserving what's left and set aside
To keep latching the days to others
Preferred to negate in the divide
I don't get mad
I just don't get dry, not anymore
I stare out my window
I watch you play in the dirt

How'd you let me get sewed down?
How'd you let me get sewed down?
Won't you send me back home now, like I deserve?
I deserve

I'm so scared, I just can't go anymore
I keep patching my roof up
Still, the rain falls on my side of the door
Now my hardwood floor
It swells and it moans like it hurts
And when night comes around
I can hear it pray to the earth

How'd you let me get sewed down?
How'd you let me get sewed down?
Won't you send me back home now, like I deserve?
I deserve

    General CommentI almost think hes talking like he is the house or the floor himself.
    "watch you play in the dirt" like a house is watching you grow up, always getting trampled on "i just dont get
    dry, not anymore" just my 2 cents.

    General CommentThe way I see it, this song is about emotional defences and shields.

    "I keep patching my roof up
    Still, the rain falls on my side of the door
    Now my hardwood floor
    It swells and it moans like it hurts"

    The hardwood floor is the core, the heart or soul, which these emotional defences have failed to protect, and as a result has been warped by the 'rain'..

    It's an extremely laboured metaphor, but the best part of the song is its lovely, cosy, free-form vocal break anyway, which has far more expression in its fuzziness than these clunky verses manage. Nice.

    My InterpretationPretty sure that's the gibberish language from The Sims he's singing, there. ;-)


    I have a tough time figuring out what the heck this song is about. The only thing I can think of is that it's a metaphor for a guy in a relationship: wood is used for the floor because that is one of wood's purposes, and likewise humans get into relationships for the same reason. It's just how it's done, it's the way the world works. Like the floor getting warped in this environment that seems so unnatural, the hearts of humans can often get 'warped' in relationships because these "leaks" just happen. It can feel completely unnatural, but that's how it goes. But this doesn't stop us from getting into new relationships, once we're done with the last one we move on to the next. And when that one gets sour, we ask, "how'd I get 'sewed down' to this crap all over again?!"

    "I don't get mad
    I just don't get dry, not anymore"
    A certain indifference we get when we're in those tough relationships where you fight ALL THE TIME. Totally relatable.


    "I stare out my window
    I watch you play in the dirt"
    Seems he was in a relationship with one of those grouchy girls who need everything their way and fight over everything. They cause the havoc, yet walk away as if nothing was ever their fault. Like I said, if you've been in one of those kinds of relationships before, it's totally relatable. Chicks move on like it's nothing, while guys are left "inside" watching the girl have fun.
