"Cave-O-Sapien" as written by and Spencer Kyle Krug Dan Boeckner....
Caveosapian, you were made for the breaking of my back
And caveosapian, you were made for the breaking of my back
As I carried you past quiet houses, kicking through the roses in the yard
I spied the wildflower kisses on your neck
I saw the garden had been trampled past repair
Oh caveosapian

And you look like the sunrise
Purple, lemon, baby blue, and gold
But I knew it sounded bad when you said "no regrets" and then said nothing more

And while you're leaving deep into the smoke of those two sticks you keep rubbing together
I keep thinking about how bad it's gonna burn

And all the people I've loved back home
Or I've loved and love
That you turned on people just offering shelter from the wind
So bow your head into the wind
My caveosapian

I had a vision of a gorilla
And he was a killer, a killer
Oh caveosapian
Oh caveosapian
Cave-o-caveosapian
I'll cave, I'll cave, I'll cave-oh

All alone
And it feels astound you
You're not the sunrise
You're just alone

I've got you 'til you're gone
I've got you 'til you're gone
'Til you're gone, I got you

    General CommentPersonally, I think it is "And while you're leaning deep..." It makes more sense, though it is hard to tell what he is saying there.

    General CommentWell cave o sapien is a part of Spencer that doesnt make relationships a priority. Maybe a part of him that is like his father, or a runner. Spencer has that, and nothing else, until he lets cave-o go. Perhaps cave-o is the primitive part of man that would rather gather from a garden and trample it as oppossed to tending to one. Cave-O doesnt do commitment. I think this vision of masculinity was at a time attractive to Spencer, but he realizes that it leaves you alone. Sometimes men focus more on their purposes and devises than their relationships as well.
