"Story" as written by and Solon Ben Bixler Rachel Eleanore Stolte....
Tell you a secret, tell you a story
About someone inside
Pass it around, get you some glory
And don't forget to tack on a lie

And all those things you tried to make you feel alive
And if you can't tell why all those things make you blind
That may be why the sun sets high

What do you want, what do you need?
What do you get, what do you see?

Tell me your secrets, tell me your story
How about one you can't hide behind?
Pass it around, get me some glory
I won't forget to tack on a lie

And it's in all those things we won't ever say
And it's in all those things we won't ever be
And it's in all those things we would pay not to see

What do you want, what do you need?
What do you get, what do you see?

It's all the same, with different words
A simple name, you know your worth
The story goes
I'm hiding, your hiding, I'm hiding the words

I should have left it all alone
I should have left it all alone

What do you want, what do you need?
I should have left it all alone
What do you get, what do you see?
I should have left it all alone

    My InterpretationThe song seems pretty straightforward in its message. In telling stories about our lives, we all want to seem better and more interesting than we really are. But in "tacking on lies", we blind ourselves to our own flaws and feed our egos; when our stories get out of control, we'll only end up wishing we'd "left it all alone". In the end, it's better to be honest than to hide our insecurities behind the stories we tell.
