"Tuxedos" as written by Dann Gallucci, Matthew Maust, Matthew Aveiro and Nathan Willett....
I think about eyes that watch you.
I think about changes I've made.
I think about all this fancy food going down the drain.
I spend a lot of time by myself,
Imagining great speeches I'd make
To crowds of people; how can I help?
But what would I say?

When will I find, when will I find someone to take?
Or did I find and not realize, I was the fake.

I love to be a stranger at a wedding.
Cause tuxedos don't discriminate
A perfect disguise, so be cool and fill up your plate.

When will I find, when will I find someone to take?
Or did I find and not realize, I was the fake.
When will I find, when will I find someone to take?
For the millionth time, for the millionth time I was the fake.
I was the fake, I was to blame.

I think about eyes that watch you.
I think about changes I've made.
I think about all this fancy food
Going down the drain, down the drain, down the drain
Going down the drain, down the drain, down the drain
Going down the drain, the drain, the drain, the drain, the drain
Going down the drain

    General CommentI love the mood of this song. I also love the way it builds to the final verse, that incredible crescendo:
    I think about eyes that watch you.
    I think about changes I've made.
    I think about all this fancy food
    Going down the drain, down the drain, down the drain
    Going down the drain, down the drain, down the drain
    Going down the drain, the drain, the drain, the drain, the drain
    Going down the drain

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a divorce/split, which involved a ruined event/celebration (perhaps a wedding). He takes the blame for everything, for being fake and admits it for the millionth time. The song beautifully captures the tragedy and regret involved.

    But the most interesting aspect is the implication that things could have been different. If he had made a 'great speech' perhaps it would have changed something. And while he laments about her new lover ('the eyes that watch you') he thinks about 'the changes' he has made: implying that although he was to blame, some of those problems don't exist anymore.
