I walk around like a skeleton last night, trying to find my way home
This white frame, it's all that I got left 'cause not even you can chew through my bones
I got very strong bones

I walk around like a skeleton last night, confused and alone
Who was I kidding? I can't get passed you, you are the cops, you are my student loans
You are a head-shaped hole in a sheet rock wall, you are the pain I feel, you are the stud in the wall
Better than nothin' at all

And I got so stoned I fell asleep in the front seat
I never sleep in the front seat, I'm too tall
But I got so stoned I fell asleep in the front seat,
I never sleep in the front seat, I'm too tall
But I got so stoned

Come on baby calm me down, you're the only one who knows how

Reunited and it feels so good, so much better than I thought it would
'Cause I feel fucked, but in a good way. I start to cough, taste the butane
And I can tell that he's asking her yes or no questions by the way she's shaking her head
From left to right, then up and down, then left to right again

I'm gonna go get so stoned I fall asleep in the front seat
I never sleep in the front seat, I'm too tall
But I got so stoned I fell asleep in the front seat
I never sleep in the front seat, I'm too tall
But I got so stoned

Come on baby calm me down, you're he only one who knows how

I got miles to go 'til I ever get home,
But the sound of your laugh and your voice on the phone
Makes it feel like I am already there

I got so stoned I fell asleep in the front seat
I never sleep in the front seat, I'm too tall
But I got so stoned (I got so stoned) I fell asleep in the front seat (I fell asleep in the front seat)
I never sleep in the front seat (I never sleep in the front seat), I'm too tall
But I got so stoned (I got so stoned) I fell asleep in the front seat (I fell asleep in the front seat),
I never sleep in the front seat (I never sleep in the front seat), I'm too tall
But I got so stoned

    My InterpretationThis song seems a little ambiguous to me. He is speaking directly to who I presume is a girl for most of the song. In the first verse, he seems desperate and lonely, walking by himself at night trying to find his house. The girl he mentions conflicts with his head deeply and he has problems with her; however, he would rather have issues with her than nothing whatsoever. I believe in the second verse, he is singing about smoking weed, most likely out of a bowl ("the taste of butane"). He sees this girl talking to another man and they seem to be having a nice conversation. Unable to take the sight, he leaves to go smoke more, presumably to get his mind off the situation. The bridge, to me, conflicts with the rest of the song. He sings about how picturing this girl makes him more eager to get home. Perhaps his love for her is unrequited, but she is still friends with him.

    My InterpretationThis song is about a girl at a party.
    He's way into her, but she's off with some other guy.

    When it switches to the chorus, he is singing TO the drugs.

    "And I got so stoned I fell asleep in the front seat
    I never sleep in the front seat, I'm too tall
    But I got so stoned I fell asleep in the front seat,
    I never sleep in the front seat, I'm too tall
    But I got so stoned

    Come on baby calm me down, you're the only one who knows how

    Reunited and it feels so good, so much better than I thought it would
    'Cause I feel fucked, but in a good way. I start to cough, taste the butane"

    The drugs are what is calming him down.
    The anxiety is over this girl.

    And he goes overboard

    General Commentthe song is about a dude who failed at a relationship. he goes out to his car - possibly because the significant other kicked him out of the house - and gets high to forget his feelings.

    also, i get the sense the dude is also spying on the significant other, possibly watching her with a new boyfriend.

    and he will do whatever it takes to win her back, as evident by "i got miles to go..." stanza.
