"R.I.P." as written by Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman....
This town, used to be a pretty place to stay,
A place you'd stop off from the highway,
But all of those things,
Changed on the day, you packed up your bags and you ran away,
All they say, is how you've changed,
Everyday, I stay the same, so you can keep the necklace
That I gave to you,
I'll keep the shitty tattoos

I can see it from the other side
The grass isn't always as green
And the house is burned to ashes,
I'm no longer in between,
R.I.P, R.I.P, you, and me.
I can see it from the other side
The grass is an oasis green
And the house is burned to ashes,
I'm no longer in between,
R.I.P, R.I.P, you, and me.

I count, the empty bottles upon the bar,
But I give up I can't count that far,
And the lights in this place,
Are too dim to see,
They're kicking me out, it's quarter past 3,
They tell me, you're all I got,
I just need these dreams to stop,
You can keep the necklace I gave to you,
I'll keep the shitty tattoos.

I can see it from the other side
The grass isn't always as green
And the house is burned to ashes,
I'm no longer in between,
R.I.P, R.I.P, you, and me.
I can see it from the other side
The grass is an oasis green
And the house is burned to ashes,
I'm no longer in between,
R.I.P, R.I.P, you, and me.

And me, and me, and me, and me

In the back of the car,
On the way to your home,
In the pouring rain,
On the side of the road,
In the light of the street,
On the recline of the seat,
You told me I should move on
In the back of the car,
On the way to your home,
In the pouring rain,
On the side of the road,
In the light of the street,
On the recline of the seat,
You told me I should move on

I can see it from the other side
The grass isn't always as green
And the house is burned to ashes,
I'm no longer in between,
R.I.P, R.I.P, you, and me.
I can see it from the other side
The grass is an oasis green
And the house is burned to ashes,
I'm no longer in between,
R.I.P, R.I.P, you, and me.

    My OpinionThis is one of my favorite songs from Streets of Gold. I think it's pretty clearly about a relationship that has ended and the girl has moved on but he hasn't. In my opinion, 3OH!3 does just as well with meaningful songs as they do with fun, catchy pop songs. I like how they switch it up sometimes.

    General Commenti agree, i think this is the best song from Streets of Gold.
    i love this part..
    "I can see it from the other side
    The grass isn't always as green
    The house is burnt to ashes
    I'm no longer in between"

    i think it means that they see reality now and that it isn't going to work out or that person just isn't right for them. and "i'm no longer in between" shoes that the person isn't confused anymore...they aren't in denial about the situation. they know that they just need to let the other person go.

    General CommentI dont think he's over her in this song. I think he understands that the relationship is over for good with the way he says "you can keep the necklace that I gave to you/ Ill keep the shitty tattoos", but the song also insinuates that he's been out drinking, which shows he's upset about it, and it says that she's telling him to move on, so he obviously hasnt yet. Also, the chorus "I can see it from the other side, the grass isn't always as green, the house is burned to ashes, I'm no longer in between", he's saying that the grass isnt as green on the other side, showing that he misses the life he had with her, because it was "greener".
