"Everything Must Go" as written by and Adam Burbank Lazzara Matthew Fazzi....
We found a house
with a yard
And moved all of my things in
And most of your things in
And honey I was proud of it
Yeah honey I was proud of, you...

You quote the good book
when its convenient
but you dont have the sense
no you dont have the sense
to tie your tangled toungue
instead you slash it through the mud

and some boxes
and hand me down couch, and chair
they used to be at your church
we borrowed them from there
and cabinet-record player
with nothin but james taylor
tore the carpets from the corners
to put in that hardwood floor
i'd be a fool to have asked for more

You quote the good book
when its convenient
but you dont have the sense
no you dont have the sense
to tie your tangled tongue
instead you slash it through the mud

The love you had was good enough
The paths that we were stuck between
beside myself i stop to think,
oh lord what have i done



You quote the good book
when its convenient
but you dont have the sense
no you dont have the sense
to tie your tangled tounge
instead you slash it through the mud

    My OpinionThe vocals are amazing. I love the slight shakiness when he says "tongue".

    We found a house
    with a yard
    with ALL of my things
    and MOST of your things
    and yeah honey i was proud of it
    yeah honey i was proud of you...

    You quote the good book
    when it's convenient
    but you don't have the sense, no
    you don't have the sense
    to talk it through to dawn
    instead you're slashing through the bars...

    and the boxes,
    the hand-me-down couch and chair
    it used to be at your church
    we borrowed them from there
    a cabinet record player with nothing but james taylor
    two carpets over corners coverin that hard wood floor
    i've been fooled too fast before (before, before...)

    You quote the good book
    when it's convenient
    but you don't have the sense, no
    you don't have the sense
    to talk it through to dawn

    when it's convenient
    but you don't have the sense, no
    you don't have the sense
    to talk it through to dawn
    instead you're slashing through the bar

    the love we had was good enough
    the past that we were stuck between
    but so much stuff must go tonight
    the love we had was dead

    You quote the good book
    when it's convenient
    but you don't have the sense, no
    you don't have the sense
    to talk it through to dawn

    "Slashing" meaning drinking but i do hear mud in there too...

    the song is obviously about the ending of Adam's engagement to Chauntelle DuPree from Eisley. The whole "You quote the good book" is a reference to Chantelle's strong religious beliefs.

    General CommentI got to hear the whole of new again tonight - it's going to blow you away ;)
    I also spoke to adam after, who said it's not 'talk this through to dawn' but 'tie your tangled tongue'

    My InterpretationWe found a house with a big yard
    And moved all of my things
    And most of your things in
    And honey I was proud of it
    Yeah honey I was proud of, you...

    You quote the good book
    when its convenient
    but you dont have the sense
    no you dont have the sense
    to tie your tangled toungue
    instead you slash it through the mud.

    and some boxes
    that hand me down couch, and chair
    yeah, used to be at your church
    we'd borrowed it down from there
    and cabinet-record player
    with nothin but james taylor
    tore the carpets from the corners
    to put in the hardwood floor
    i'd be a fool to ask for more

    You quote the good book
    when its convenient
    but you dont have the sense
    no you dont have the sense
    to tie your tangled tongue
    instead you slash it through the mud.

    there's more, but i can't tell what it is.

    General Commentit's "sloshing through the mud"

    General CommentI think the first couple of lines "we found a house with a yard/ and moved all of my things in/ and most of your things in" might not be a literal house, but refers to the relationship adams past engagement that went wrong. him moving all his things in is saying he put his everything into it to make it work, but she never could put everything in

    General Commentman, i do love the beginning of this song.

    "You quote the good book
    when its convenient
    but you dont have the sense
    no you dont have the sense
    to tie your tangled tounge
    instead you slash it through the mud"

    ...You quote the good book when its convenient...

    man, that really hits home for me. You know, when someone makes sense, but you can't really explain it?
