"Today's Supernatural" as written by and David Michael Portner Brian Ross Weitz....
Come on let-let-let-let-let-let-let go
From that sea-saw
This is fucking your brain
It's gonna hold me out again
Come on let-let-let-let-let-let-let go
By all the key-hole
You can press yourself against it
You keep waiting for me cage

Hear me say
Come on let-let-let-let-let-let-let go
It's not a question for your head
Come and join me in this seat,
Cause there's a ruby in your eye
Or you're after me the same
Cause you're all the sweetest thing inside of you
Our home is bigger than a mountain view
Your file's so thin you believe that you should do
Sometimes it won't come so easy
But sometimes you gotta go get mad, mad

Come on let-let-let-let-let-let-let go
Shift the ease on
Listen to me now and stay in the red zone of pain
And I'll look out and say
Come on let-let-let-let-let-let-let go
Had a question for...
I may shout out with my head and mend back your heart
But remember me and say
Cause you're all the sweetest thing inside of you
Our home is bigger than a mountain view
Your file's so thin you believe that you should do
Sometimes it won't come so easy
But sometimes you gotta go get mad, mad

All the good things
Are out in the sun

Good things like friends come a long way
They'll be so bad, keep no sea calm storm
Nothing, and then we watch them shim
Feels like the sound going down
But I see no clouds
Well have you seen those clowns
Today's so supernatural

Come on let-let-let-let-let-let-let go
From that sea-saw
This is holding your brain
It's gonna pull me out again
And I'll love you the same

Come on let-let-let-let-let-let-let go
Another question for the game
I made a shadow with my head
And...
But they would never be the same
Same

    General CommentI think its about opening up, having fun, the singer is prompting a person to join him in letting his hair down. he's stating that we can have fun together and that the other person has a lot to give ,but you gotta welcome that idea and let yourself go and be open to it.

    My Interpretation3rd verse.

    C’mon and let it go
    Its not a question for your head
    **come in and join me in the speaker,
    theres a ruby in your heart and**
    we don’t have to be the same

    My Opinion"Bionic hee-haw"...a very interesting mental image. Hee-haw was a tv show back in the day, kind of a redneck-comedy country music variety show

    Lyric CorrectionTo fill in the second question mark at the breakdown part:

    "...Like friends from a long ways
    There'll be some bad dreams
    No sin comes for nothing."

    Also I think it's "Our home is bigger than a mountain view." Not just "mountain."

    I'm also hearing "Met you in Baltimore / Loved you so loud." Not as sure about the second line there but it's definitely "Met you in Baltimore," that just makes more sense.

    Song MeaningAt first, these lyric seem pretty cryptic, but I think it's pretty clearly a story about some passionate fling. The "Let let let let let let go" lyrics take on a double meaning. In the early verses, they represent sensual release, which fits in with the "erotic see saw." But in the middle of the song he hints that things are falling apart, with the lines:

    "The shifting easel
    It’s dripping now its stained in the reds and the paints
    And now it don’t look the same"

    And also of course... "Feels like the sun's going down" and "Have you seen those clouds."

    I think the insinuation is that this affair fell apart, and now the "Let let let let let let go" takes on a literal meaning, as the singer is trying to let go. The "Out of the question for the dead" line is kind of a morbid twist; is he saying he would rather die than let this go?

    Either way, this defeat is summed up in the recurring final lines:

    I made a shadow with my hand
    I made it like your heart
    But they will never be the same

    In other words, though the singer may have wanted this relationship to be more than a fleeting shadow, he could not win her heart.

    Also, I hear a slight variation: In the beginning of the song I hear "This exploding young brain is going to pull me out again." And in the second-to-last verse I hear "This exploding young brain is going to throw me out again." It's too hard to tell if I'm right about that since these lyrics are hard to hear, but if it's true that there is a shift there, it would fit perfectly into the story I'm hearing of a brief affair that couldn't last.
