"Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out" as written by Michael Jay Lerner, Peter Joseph Silberman and Darby Austin Cicci....
One bad night I'll hold the glass until the glass can hold me down
And one bad night I'll spill and spilling 'till my feet begin to drown
And one bad night I'll hear you calling me to help you not pass out

You and I divide but not devout
Every night my teeth are falling out

Try

Again control of the floor

Again control of the floor

One dumb night I'll make a point to take an ?
One dumb night I'll take you out to the bar we both blacked out
One dumb night two bad decisions don't divide to cancel out

You and I divorce but not devout
Every night my teeth are falling out
Every night my teeth are falling out

Try

Again control of the floor

    Lyric CorrectionFrom The Antlers official website:

    One bad night I’ll hold the glass until the glass can hold me down,
    And one bad night I’ll spill and spill until my feet begin to drown.
    One bad night I’ll hear you calling me to help you not pass out.

    You and I, divine but not devout,
    Every night my teeth are falling out.

    One dumb night I’ll make a point to take an old verboten route,
    And one dumb night I’ll take you out, to the bar we’ve both blacked out.
    One dumb night two bad decisions don’t divide to cancel out.

    You and I, divorced but not devout,
    Every night my teeth are falling out.

    Try it, try it, try it,
    Try it, try it, try it, try it,
    Get your jaw off the floor.

    General CommentDefinitely one of the highlights from Burst Apart. It sounds very urgent like it's about some sort of unsustainable life.

    General CommentAccording to psychology, if you have dreams about your teeth falling out, those dreams are somehow related to sex, or wanting sex.

    "You and I divorce, but not devout
    Every night my teeth are falling out"

    I think the song is about him still wanting a sexual relationship with his ex-wife/girlfriend.

    General Commentthe moment i heard the title, i knew he was talking about dreaming.
    and when you dream of your teeth falling out, it generally means that the teeth reflect your anxieties on what others think of you, (or just anxieties in general).

    but i totally understand @pumkinhed's view on this, as well.:)

    General Commenti had a theory worked out based upon the line being "get control of the floor".

    since the website officially says it's "get your jaw off the floor", there goes my theory.

    still a lovely song.

    General CommentI think it's about the destructive and confused end of a relationship.

    General CommentOn Pitchfork.com they said that in dream interpretations, teeth falling out means sexual frustration.
