"T.H.M." as written by and Bradford Cox....
I tried to keep him straight
ever since the day he was born
he came out a little late
maybe that's where frustration's born

my head was like a wound
when they called me and said
"it's happened much too soon"
took two bullets to the brain
my kid brother, he was insane
was insane

when you find a way
call and tell me when the time's erased
I had no cause to be awake
the phone rang, it was 3am
oh it was T.H.M.
where is T.H.M?

ever since I was born
I have felt so forlorn
I always knew this day would come
hey you lose and you win some

    General Commentim guessing T.H.M are initials? definitely about someone dying imo.

    General CommentTHM is a chemical compound, which is carcinogenic.
    I think that's why there is weezing.
    Otherwise I get the feeling it's about a younger brother who shoots him.

    General CommentAs "islandchase" quotes, it's about Bradford's brother killing himself. T.H.M. is a solvent that can be huffed: hence the huffing in the song.
