"Broken China" as written by and Erin Johnson Jake Snider....
Our last kiss
Held no hint
Just smoke and a little touch of mint
And now you're walking out the door

No broken China
On the floor by the couch
No hollow tipped attack
To put you on the out
You're simply leaving me
Not dressed to be alone
We brought forth see this coming on

Roll out your magic ride
For the next man
Put on a pretty face
You'll always win

I see you
Up on Broadway
Arm and arm with some bright young man
You keep walking
In a different direction
And I would wish you well if I had the chance

Roll out your magic ride
For the next man
Put on a pretty face
You'll always win

Now do we find
Back on the starting line
For once in my life
I feel that I would be rested

I dial you in on the telephone
Just to hear that ring beat
Put on my coat
And walk out that door
Went down a different street

Roll out your magic ride
For the next man
Put on a pretty face
You'll always win

Roll out your magic ride
For the next man
Put on a pretty face
You'll always win

Now do we find
Back on the starting line
For once in my life
I feel that I would be rested

    General Commentgood song.. i don't like it as much as 'into the mirror'..

    one correction i could find..

    'and now you're walking out the door'.. instead of 'and we were walking out the door'. also.. 'we brought forth see this coming on..' instead of 'we brought forth see this coming at all.'

    to sum the song up.. i believe it's about someone leaving him for bigger and better things and he's trying to let that go.. but holds on to it still. they're traveling in different directions in life but they might still end up at the same place.

    General CommentI believe the first part is "just smoke and a little touch of mint" instead of "just smoked a little touching me" and "no hollow tipped attack" instead of "no hollow tic to tac". The first line is describing how her kiss tasted and how it gave him no clue that she was leaving him and the "hollow tipped attack" is most likely referencing the unfair digs that couples say to each other when they are having a fight.

    General Commentyeah i agree with "just smoke and a little touch of mint" and "no hollow tipped attack"

    i think he says something along the lines of "a bright fool could see this coming on" instead of "we brought forth see this coming on." i know bright fool doesnt make sense but its what i hear.

    General Commenthell yeah man, this has that awesome bite that Minus The Bear amazingly pulls off without any negative effect to the overall sound of alt/experimental/math rock.

    i can not wait for the rest of the album's songs. i think it was a good pair to release.

    as for the song, to sum up my interpretation, it's about a man realizing his ex was no good at all and actually seeing [the truth of] what happened to him in a different perspective this time around and he can finally be content with how things turned out. [the line about being rested]
