"Walking Disasters" as written by and Matthew Edward/haggis Murphy....
She used to get her kicks from a fall to the floor
But now she's always wasted
A total looker, but she's jaded
The kind of shivering wreck that I adore
I can't offer you a rescue
But I can tell you what I'd do

I'd tell my mother that I love her dearly
And tell my father that I need him back again
And if these words won't drop from your lips
I will be your Freudian slip

And flowers might wilt when we walk past
And self-help might help when it makes us laugh
Only finding questions in answers
You and I are just walking disasters
You and I are just walking disasters
You and I are just walking disasters

She only finds her love in a downtown score
Consumption makes her stronger
You're the sweetest anaconda
The kind of lack of respect that I adore
I can't offer you a rescue
But when you've lost all that you have left to lose

I'd tell my mother that I love her dearly
And tell my father that I need him back again
And if these words won't drop from your lips
I will be your Freudian slip

As sharp as a knife and as blunt as a wheel
You be my calm I'll be your pneumatic drill
And what we'll never want, we'll always need
Right now we need some pop psychology
To keep us up-beat

So tell your mother that you love her dearly
And tell your father you won't lock him out again
And if these words won't drop from your lips
I will be your Freudian slip
And flowers might wilt when we walk past
And self-help might help when it makes us laugh
Only finding questions in answers
You and I are just walking disasters
You and I are just walking disasters
You and I are just walking disasters
You and I are just walking disasters
You and I are just walking disasters

    General CommentI personally think it's about him finding someone who is as messed up as him, and them trying to put their lives back together, together. But at the same time, it's sort of the realisation that being messed up isn't a bad thing (displayed in the line 'And self help might help when it makes us laugh'), and that everyone is messed up in their own little way, and that no one can ever be perfect, and that's ok as long as no one is suffering for it (the lines about making up with parents, and how she USED to disrespect herself by living a bad life)

    General CommentI think its about him trying to help a friend who had a falling out with her parents and is starting head down the wrong path, only to learn he's just as messed up.
