"Crossburner" as written by and ; Gregory John Puciato Benjamin Allen Weinman....
I just could not believe
That so much could be unseen
Are you for real?
Were you for real?
I caught you by the throat
And tried to squeeze
But you weren't real
You were not real

Turn your boat you stowaway
It’s better there here’s not okay
I’m sorry it’s so far away
You break your back for little things
Like compliments and wedding rings
I hate that little song you sing
That song you sing

[Chorus]
Turn your boat you stowaway
It’s better there here’s not okay
I’m sorry you’re so far away

Turn your boat around you stowaway

Seems you can’t stop making sound
But nothing I can’t read about
Your 2 cents fall right on the ground
Right on the ground

[Chorus]

Turn your boat around you stow away

I just could not believe
So much could be unseen
Are you for real?
Were you for real?
Cause you don’t listen
You never listen
You don’t listen
You don’t listen
I caught you by the throat and tried to squeeze
But you weren't real
You were not real
Why’d I never listen

Turn your boat you stowaway
It’s better there here’s not okay
I’m sorry we’re so far away
I’m sorry we’re so far away
I’m sorry we’re so far away

    My InterpretationI think this is a song about a women that desires commitment and attention, but can't commit herself. The first verse seems like he's questioning if this woman is too good to be true and he finds out that she isn't truthful or committed. The chorus opener: "Turn your boat you stow away" could reference her escape plan when/if the relationship doesn't work out.
    The second verse confirms her desire for commitment and attention: "You break your back for little things, Like compliments and wedding rings." And how it bothers him and her repetitive hypocrisy makes him hate her.
    "I've caught you by the throat and tried to squeeze, But you weren't real" could mean that she didn't expect anything emotional or expect a two-way relationship and so even if he tried to hurt her emotionally, she wasn't all that invested and couldn't really be hurt.
    "I'm sorry we're so far away" is just explaining their vast difference in personality and views of how a relationship should work.
