"Massachusetts" as written by Wes Miles, Alexandra Nicole Lawn, Mathieu Jordan Santos, Milo A Bonacci and Rebecca Alexandra Zeller....
In Massachusetts
In Massachusetts
Oh, no no no no no
The younger of the ocean sing
A paean to their mother, offering
To hold tight onto the quay
To hold tight onto the side of the quay
Oh, it don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter, no
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter what you do

In Massachusetts
In Massachusetts
Oh, no no no no no
A certain lack and dislocation
Sotted up to the gunwales, and
The tide tells you when to go
The tide tells you when to come and when to go
Oh, it don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter, no
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter what you do

I can't find my roads
I can't, I can't find my roads
Honestly, I want to hear the thought that I had
But I can't feel any more with you

In Massachusetts
In Massachusetts
Oh, no no no no no
To be held at bay and then consigned
To pet about the frozen time
To a mother so cold and gray
And though she gives you one, she takes one away
Oh, it don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter, no
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter what you do

In Massachusetts
In Massachusetts
Oh, no no no no no
The younger of the ocean sing
A paean to their mother, offering
To hold tight onto the quay
And though she gives you one, she takes one away
Oh, it don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter, no
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter what you do


I can't find my roads
I can't, I can't find my roads
Honestly, I want to hear the thought that I had
But I can't feel any more with you
Opens it dies
How can I only say "It's a dark mind"?
It's a dark mind
It's a dark mind
Oh, I can't tell the things for you
I want someone like you
Watching it roll by
Watching it roll by

In Massachusetts
In Massachusetts
Oh, no no no no no
To be held at bay and then consigned
To pet about the frozen time
To a mother so cold and gray
And though she gives you one, she takes one away
Oh, it don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter, no
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter what you do

    General CommentMy guess would be that it's about the death of John Pike, the band's original drummer. He was found in 7 feet of water in Massachusetts, so it makes some sense, right?

    General Commentyeah i agree with the above comment. This song gives me chills. Especially the part where he repeats "It's a dark mind."
