"Covers" as written by Kyle Falconer, Kieren Webster, Peter Reilly and Steven Morrison....
I'll pull my covers off my lady in the night,
To see the cold reaction when she realises actions I've taken,
To start conversation.

They tell me hope that really pulls the strings the most,
Clever little words from the boring little boy in the corner,
We love one another.

I never asked you to come here,
And no one asked you to come here,
They're saying words people don't wanna hear,
We don't wanna hear,
We don't wanna hear,
So stop shouting.

A piece of mind it carries tension up the stream,
The truth can pierce a hole right through the dingy little boat you sailed in on,
And the one you'll go down on.

Oh what an awful way to throw away the day,
Your season is colliding with the evil massive things you're providing,
No way you can hide in.

No one asked you to come here,
No one asked you to come here,
They're saying words that we don't wanna hear,
We don't wanna hear,
We don't wanna hear,
So stop shouting.

I never asked you to come here,
And no one asked you to come here,
They're saying things that we don't wanna hear,
We don't wanna hear
We don't wanna hear
We don't wanna hear
We don't wanna hear
We don't wanna hear
We don't wanna hear
We don't wanna hear

Exceptions are creative in your sister's way,
Your mother won't approve of these newfound days,
Think of no one but your little selfish mind,
And always think of no one.

I pull my covers off my lady in the night,
To see the cold reaction when she realises actions I've taken,
To start conversation,
To start conversation.

    My OpinionThis song really stood out to me on the album, i love:

    'The truth can pierce a hole right through the dingy little boat you sailed in on,
    And the one you'll go down on.'

    not sure what the song means in general though, any ideas?

    General CommentI'll pull my covers off my lady in the night,
    To see the cold reaction when she realises actions I've taken,
    To start conversation.
    -- So obviously one is seeking attention from the love intrest. This shows that he wants to be noticed, and feels like hes not gettin enough attention?

    They tell me hope that really pulls the strings the most,
    Clever little words from the boring little boy in the corner,
    We love one another.
    -- maybe he feels like he is the boring little boy, and hes hoping that this love intret will notice him if he sounds smart and draws attention to himself. he hopes that she will love him.

    I never asked you to come here,
    And no one asked you to come here,
    They're saying words people don't wanna hear,
    We don't wanna hear,
    We don't wanna hear,
    So stop shouting.
    -- im not too sure about this though... maybe there is another person who is stealing the womans attention?

    A piece of mind it carries tension up the stream,
    The truth can pierce a hole right through the dingy little boat you sailed in on,
    And the one you'll go down on.
    -- a methaphor. the stream is life? the boat is dingy, but obvious important. it represents the love? but the truth if it comes out may stop the love.

    Oh what an awful way to throw away the day,
    Your season is colliding with the evil massive things you're providing,
    No way you can hide in.
    -- ? :(

    ...

    Exceptions are creative in your sister's way,

    And always think of no one.
    -- so how the lady is ignoring him might not be a womanly thing to do. maybe shes coy? anyways, shes no thinking of him, but only herself, and his hurting him in the process. thats why hes trying to seek attention, so she can see the pair hes putting him though.

    maybe, maybe no. just my iterpretation. i look forward to hearin other folks opinions!
