And it begins, I toss and turn
But things can't be much worse
Hurry up and wait, this convoluted state,
Induced by you, and the loaded things you say

You're gonna miss, gonna miss, gonna miss me someday
You're gonna miss, gonna miss, gonna miss me someday

The siren sings, to pull you in
as things are wearing thin
The time it takes, before you break,
Let me introduce myself, my name is Fate

You're gonna miss, gonna miss, gonna miss me someday
You're gonna miss, gonna miss, gonna miss me someday

You gotta take you're time with things like these
all that you want is someone to ask for apologies
for things that don't exist, they just don't make sense
So much pretense

April 5th, I arise with chapped lips
And the babbling of nonsense over the TV's dull hiss
The events of April 4th align just a little more
Than the infatuated roar of the kids across the street
Though they speak not to me, they go deeper than my worry
With a friend of a friend who at a bar last night told me that they loved me
But it must've been the Bacardi that had her hanging off me,
Saying things she didn't mean, but her words still haunt me!

    General CommentApril 5th, I arise with chapped lips
    and the babbling of nonsense over the tv's dull hiss.
    The events of April 4th align just a little more
    than the infatuated roar of the kids across the street.
    Though they speak not to me.
    They go deeper than my worry,
    for a friend of a friend who at a bar last night told me that that they loved me.
    But it must have been the Bacardi
    that had her hanging off me, and saying things she didnt mean.
    Why do her words still haunt me?

    Pretty sure it's "so much pretense".

    My InterpretationYou gotta take you're time with things like these,
    All that you are is someone to ask for apologies,
    For things that dont exist, They just dont make sense.
    So much pretense...

    April 5th, I arise with chapped lips
    And the babbling nonsense over the TV's dull hiss
    The events of April 4th align just a little more
    Than the infatuated roar of the kids across the street
    Though they speak not to me, they go deeper then my worry
    With a friend of a friend who at a bar last night told me that they loved me
    But it must've been the Bacardi
    ?
    Certain things seem too good to me,
    ?

    Just my take on things, that last part has me beat for sure..

    General CommentGood but not my favourite off the new album. I like the oh-whoa-oh part and the little narration he gives starting with "April 5th..." His rhyme phonetics and pauses on that part remind me of Eminem's early albums. Especially the way it sounds like he gets progressively pissed off and says some words louder than others.



    Also, This is a little over two years old but I just found this interesting interview with Thomas.
