"How Your Heart Is Wired" as written by and Dominic Michael Phillips Dave Brian Geraghty....
My tongue is scailing the North face of your neck
And we're glaring like warriors but,
I've a feelin' you won't look at me that way in the morning
'cause lately you seem less sure of this thing
You're like Bambi on Ice
And there's something in the flash of your arms
A certain longing

Kick the can I can't see you now behind that temper and ire
Mister wolf knows what time it is
He says it's dinner time
I don't know what you're carrying or how you're heart is wired
But there's a dangerous ticking.

I cut the red one, No, the Blue one
I cut the red one,
I cut the blue one
Raking over the embers and what I come across?

Is that you, combing your hair?
Is that me, eating an egg?

And are we there
Like John Boy said?

My tongue is scaling the North face of your neck
And we're glaring like warriors but,
I've a feelin' you won't look at me that way
I've a feelin' you won't look at me that way
I've a feelin' you won't look at me that way
In the morning.

Is this how it goes,
In these, the final throws?

    I didnt think I could like this band any more than I do, but after hearing this I do!
    The lyrics are just always something to think about, whether deep or just creative or anything else, always keeps me intrigued!

    General CommentThis song actually sounds like a story of a girl who has a troubling secret and hates the guy she manages to sleep with, who too dislikes the girl. The girl manages to break down in front of the guy and showing him a softer side but in the morning he's guessing she'll return back to her normal self, an arragont and angry person. But he is actually starting to see behind her hatred and starts to love her and tries to figure out a way to help but is confused as to how, hence the "cut the red one, no the blue one."

    That's just my interpretation of this beautiful song.

    General CommentPretty sure the last lines are "Is this how it goes / in these, the final throes."

    General CommentFirst, let me start off by saying this song is amazing and i still can't stop listening to it after about a year.

    I know this is probably not a good interpretation of the song, but what i got out of it is that he is in a fight with a girlfriend/wife and that if he says the wrong thing then she will go off like a bomb. That's what i think.

    At the 4:00min mark the song becomes the most amazing song ever.
