If I tell you a lie, then I'll tell you the truth
I'm gonna travel down with a brilliant moon
Gonna make my way, it's becoming gray
It wants to be a child anyway
So we travel through the crowd
Shook hands, took a bow
We travel through the crowd
Made our way

We took our hands, went to the beach
Made homes out of cardboard sheets
We saw this love, we had it tough
But I had nothing to do with it
Nothing to do with it
I had nothing to do with it
Nothing to do with it

If I lose this bay, I'll be the bones
If I lose this bay, I'll be the bones
If I lose this bay, I'll be the bones
I'll never be this bold again

Saw a man, saw what he took
It was a stack of books and a rusty hook
Asked what he'd learned, where he'd been
He said he'd traveled to and from every land
Saw a million things, shook a million hands
But was breaking bread with an old friend
When he saw it in his eyes
Had nothing to do with it
Nothing to do with it
Had nothing to do with it
Nothing to do with it

If I lose this bay, I'll be the bones
If I lose this bay, I'll be the bones
If I lose this bay, I'll be the bones
I'll never be this bold again

Inevitable and I
Inevitable and I

This is something I have never seen before
Some kind of secret door
There's a man waiting
He keeps the men waiting

    General CommentI'm gonna wing this shit.
    I honestly think this song is about him/someone running away to achieve they're dreams. Sacrificing everything they're ever had to do what they love even though the odds are against them to fail. And that that situation was Inevitable, and he knew it was going to happen eventually. Then at the end of it all he achieves his dream.
    "This is something I have never seen before
    Some kind of secret door
    There's a man waiting
    He keeps the men waiting"
    Just my perspective.

    General CommentSeems to me that it's about death. Harvard's lyric are very hard to get meaning out of, but there are some things that you can put together.

    My InterpretationI feel that it's the story of a man going on a journey to nowhere and meeting people along the way. It seems he also feels that he has no true control of his life which is why he just sort of let's the story tell itself and says that he "had nothing to do with it." The ending of the song is about his life coming to an end and him meeting the waiting man i.e. death.
