Ladies and gentlemen can I
Say this story seems alive away from you
We'll hope for love on hotel floors
And write a history for teens with dreamer's truths

Then he looks her in the eye
She considers hiding spades and trumps so bland
Such a crush of subtle ties
And disclaimers wish for wings, in idle hands
And he said baby jump

Oh oh oh from the hospital
We're honorary members of the red carpet academy
Oh oh oh from the hospital
We're honorary members of the red carpet academy

So wrap your lips around these lies
Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight
Into my arms into the sea
Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight

Ladies and gentlemen, the truth
Definition of your tongue packed full of sick
And this relationship will sing
In this hostile plague of hospital soundtrack-track-track-ah

Oh oh oh from the hospital
We're honorary members of the red carpet academy
Oh oh oh from the hospital
We're honorary members of the red carpet academy

So wrap your lips around these lies
Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight
Into my arms into the sea
Just to fall in love girl, love girl
Oh we're playing at a home team quarter breaker
We're swaying but the home team's swimming alone
Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight

And she said all this intimacy
Well you stitched my throat here like a shotgun
So put your hands up hun, start up the machine
And can I ask you one more question?
Said all this into the sea
Well you stitched my throat here like a shotgun
So put your hands up before I start up the machine
And can I ask you one more question?
Said oh

Ole

So wrap your lips around these lies
Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight
Into my arms into the sea
Just to fall in love girl, love girl
Woah-oh-oh we're playing at a home team quarter breaker
Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight
We're swaying but the home team's swimming alone
Just to fall in love girl
So don't you swim alone tonight

Oh oh oh from the hospital
We're honorary members of the red carpet academy
Oh oh oh from the hospital
We're honorary members of the red carpet academy

    General Commentok this maybe realllly random

    but i think this might be about a guy and girl jumping into the sea..
    e.g-Then he looks her in the eye
    She considers hiding spades and trumps so bland
    Such a crush of subtle ties
    And disclaimers wish for wings, in idle hands
    And he said baby jump

    then shauns saying like there first "served" in the hosptial "Oh oh oh from the hospital
    We're honorary members of the red carpet academy"- coz they might be dieing from drowning e.g-"Well you stitched my throat here like a shotgun"
    idk.......hahah

    and yea....hahahaha

    General CommentI love this song and I have been trying to get the meaning for it from the video clip.
    I have ideas
    I think it’s about a relationship based song.
    Shaun telling a story of two lovers.....

    'Then he looks her in the eye
    She considers hiding spades and trumps so bland
    Such a crush of subtle ties
    And disclaimers wish for wings, in idle hands
    And he said baby jump'

    it means that she playing him 'outplays so gentle' and he is falling in love, but just they believe that she's real so they wish for wings and tell her to jump (maybe off a cliff)
    and in idle hands-that means in busy hands, so a doctor..?

    "So wrap your lips around these lies
    Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight
    Into my arms into the sea
    Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight"

    he wants her to kiss her and forget the lies?
    so they can fall in love, so she can fall in love in his arms-fall in love with him


    "Ladies and gentlemen, the truth
    Definition of your tongue packed full of sick
    And this relationship will sing
    In this hostile plague of hospital soundtrack-track-track-ah"

    he's telling the truth of the relationship
    it’s a definitions of tongue packed full of sick-disgusting/bad truth
    you can seethes in the relationship-it sings out
    in this enemy disease/sick hospital (I don’t get the soundtrack bit)

    'And she said all this intimacy
    Well you stitched my throat here like a shotgun
    So put your hands up hun, start up the machine
    And can I ask you one more question?
    Said all this into the sea'

    as in all he intimacy between them, she says that it’s making it hard for her to breathe/she can’t take the lies
    I think the machine might be some hospital device to help save lives e.g. life support
    then she questions him bout when he said ‘into my arms, into the sea’
    then she either realises that he means that their relationship can go into the sea-its over (the seas is some sort of metaphor but I don’t quite understand what it is)

    this is sorta what I think
    feel free to say anything about it or correct me haha
    idk I have to ask Shaun then I shall post the actual meaning

    soz i hav
    e to edit my 1st comment so...

    I love this song and I have been trying to get the meaning for it from the video clip.

    'Then he looks her in the eye

    And disclaimers wish for wings, in idle hands
    And he said baby jump'

    it means that she playing him.she 'outplays so gentle' and he is falling in love, but just he doesnt believe that she's real so they wish for wings and tell her to jump (maybe off a cliff) to prove that she i real and to believe that theres a girl out there like her.-i think he can
    and in idle hands-that means in busy hands, so a doctor..?

    "So wrap your lips around these lies
    Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight
    Into my arms into the sea
    Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight"

    he wants her to kiss her and forget the lies from her past?
    so they can fall in love, so she can fall in love in his arms-fall in love with him


    "Ladies and gentlemen, the truth
    Definition of your tongue packed full of sick
    And this relationship will sing
    In this hostile plague of hospital soundtrack-track-track-ah"

    he's telling the truth of the relationship
    it’s a definitions of disgusting/bad truth
    you can see this in the relationship-it sings out
    in this enemy-disease/sick hospital (I don’t get the soundtrack bit)

    'And she said all this intimacy
    Well you stitched my throat here like a shotgun
    So put your hands up hun, start up the machine
    And can I ask you one more question?
    Said all this into the sea'

    as in all he intimacy between them, she says that it’s making it hard for her to breathe/she can’t take the lies.or he has taken hr breath away
    I think the machine might be some hospital device to help save lives e.g. life support.so he can save her cause of her 'lose' of breathe
    then she questions him bout when he said ‘into my arms, into the sea’
    then she either realises that he means that their relationship can go into the sea-its over (the seas is some sort of metaphor but I don’t quite understand what it is)or the sea is a metaphor of there future life togethe-as in its big wide and unknown just yet

    this is sorta what I think
    feel free to say anything about it or correct me haha

    My InterpretationThis may be really off, but I agree with alanaellington - it's about a relationship

    "This story seems alive away from you
    We'll hope for love on hotel floors"

    He's saying that, away from the girl, it seems more real, because when they're together, they've got to hide all the time (hire hotel rooms together, etc.)

    "Then he looks her in the eye
    She considers hiding spades and trumps and plans
    Such a crush of subtle lies"

    Basically, she's lying to him. It's like playing poker or something. The aim is to guess what the other person has in their hand, while not revealing your own. And she's better at it than he is, but he knows what she's doing.

    "From the hospital
    We're honorary members of the red carpet academy"

    They've put each other in hospital (symbolic, I think) so often that they're practically honoured guests.

    "So wrap your lips around these lies
    Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight
    Into my arms into the sea
    Just to fall in love girl, love girl, tonight"

    He's seen through her lies, and she can't lie her way out of that, but he's daring her to try. But he still, on some level loves her, and he compares their love to jumping off a cliff - adrenaline while you fall, but likely to be nasty at the bottom - again, with the hospital, they visit so often, and this time, they'll be part of the "red carpet academy" (needing urgent attention).

    The rest basically builds on those metaphors.

    That was probably way too in-depth, but that's just what I get from it.

    General CommentWell, from breaking my arm and being slightly drugged out at the hospital when they fixed it, i kind of think its all your normal thoughts getting all mixed up with weird conclusions.
    So like how how you might think about fame, love, and weird things you think of, just all mixed together to make this almost nonsense song.
    Like while they fixed my arm i was seeing people in three's and had no idea what they were doing, while still knowing they were fixing my arm.
    I love it so much.
    They need to make their music available in america.
