Leave it alone
We finished this up like an hour ago

So leave me alone
I planted it once, just assumed it would grow
Even though, when I think
Its replicated fear throws me off for years

So take me or don't
A three hour drive but we got nowhere close
You read what I wrote

But you tuned the sound out to make sure I know
Even though I can't see, I feel it's always haunting me
Kicking out my feet
Ruining everything

So take me alone
Cause if it's not with you, I've got no place to go
Your brags turn to boasts
And into fights lasting hours about your dad's ghost

Although you can't say it yet
It's never been the same
And it looks to stay that way
It feels like you're okay

When I was a fire I turned into ice
Melting off my last feverish highs
And I leapt through the sunshine and into the night
Singing songs of my healthiest fears

So take me or don't
I've built up this kingdom you'd hopefully loathe
If we end up alone
A plague on my head and a curse in my home

    My InterpretationThe song's probably about Andy telling either Jesus, God or religion in general to leave him alone. The line "And into fights lasting hours about your dad's ghost" probably gives it away.

    If there's no heaven, Andy, then where's your grandpa?

    Andy's a pastor's child and he might've just had this conversation before. Additionally, the last lines seem to allude to Exodus.

    To me, however, this song has a much more personal interpretation. I bought this record a few months back during the concluding phase to a very traumatic relationship I'd been caught in. In the end, after a long period of holding on to an ill and troubled woman, she disappeared without a trace leaving only a handwritten note. To me personally, this song is about trying to move on.

    I want her to leave me alone. Yet all sorts of little things remind me of her. The other day I came across a video of her by accident- one I'd never seen before.

    I figured the relationship would just grow, but it became so bad and traumatic instead. Having had no closure, I'm frightened at the prospect of a new relationship. Its replicated fear throws me off.

    I tried getting in contact with her a few times. She read what I wrote, then decided to ignore me.

    I don't see her anymore, but her memory haunts me. A beautiful morning is ruined when I accidentally stumble upon something she left behind.

    I was, and am so prepared to be taken along in her troubles. Sometimes it feels like if it's not with her, I've got no place to go.

    But in the end, let's face it. After she became this way, it's never be the same. She doesn't need my help; she's doing just fine on her own.

    Painful.
