On a morning in Baton Rouge
I change position to some heartbreaking news
I remember the sobs in the call about you
And I'm deep too
To what rests on Connecticut steps
Total shock and an assortment of friends
And thoughts to go along with the rest in my head
It's what this meant
It's what you meant
To everyone you met

Today I'm so unbelievably helpless
Against the pit in my stomach I couldn't begin to shake off
So in the back of my mind
My brain has rendered me silent
Which not a soul around me could understand

I slept in the sun all the way to Jackson
You'd agree this is the worst Goddamn place on earth
Resolve to calm and concealed reaction
That I'm so hurt
That we're so hurt
Of this clever disguise I've made so sure

Tonight I'm so unbelievably helpless
Against the pit in my stomach I couldn't begin to shake off
So in the back of my mind
My brain has rendered me silent
Which not a soul around me could ever understand
Not a soul around me could ever understand

    General CommentLike the poster before me noted, this song is about Mitch's death, how Evan heard the news and no one around him understood his pain and frustration.
