Over the fence,
My foot gets ahold of the grate,
And up to the rope,
Who knows if it cant take my weight,
Nut even if it frays,
Even as I scale these walls,
I believe that troubles mount,
And I believe a curse,
Hold me in her arms,
And the truth of the matter,
Is its all over you,

Ahead of it shouts by a mile or two,
If I sail out to the west,
Who know if I can make the rest,
But even if I cant,
Even if they take me back,
I believe that troubles mount,
And I believe a curse,
Hold me in her arms,
And the truth of the matter,
Is it all over you,
And the truth of the matter,
Is it all over you. (all over over you (2x))

But even if I'm safe,
Even if I make it out,
I believe that troubles mounts,
And I believe a curse,
Holds me in her arms,
And the truth of the matter,
Is it all over you,
And the truth of the matter,
Is it all over you.

    General CommentTo me this song is about running away from a past love, or rather the fear that past love has put into you. The whole song is about escaping, but the curse still catches up to the speaker. It's noble that he is trying to get away from that fear of his heart break, but at the same time he realizes that it's kind of impossible at the same time. Even if I'm safe, even if he makes it out, the curse is still there.

    Some of the lyrics are a little incorrect

    "who knows if it 'can' take my weight"

    "Who knows if I can make the 'rails'"

    If you listen to it while you're reading you'll probably get it so no biggie, just being a stickler.

    Anyway, I like that love has been embodied as a scary thing in this song. Chris has given it a few different faces on the album, but this is my favorite face of love... The one that won't let you get over it and move on.

    Kind of sad that it was just a bonus track. Seems like it should have made the cut to be included with the album in any form rather than just the digital downloads.
