"Has This Hit" as written by and Archie Ivan Marshall....
(Dimly man I'm not calling you)

Another disappointed soul
Well I try
I try to keep it in control
Well I
I will end up on the dole
It's my life
And now fall into it I go

Well Blue, you've got me on the go
So don't worry
You'll never know
Your eyes
Are never cold
To me
Well at least that's what I was told

Girl
You made
My dreams come true
It's all a clue
It's all for you

Myself is still eighteen
In cue
And it's all
That I want to do

I know when I look into the sky
There is no meaning
And I'm the only one believing
That there's nothing to believe in

I'm dreaming
My aspirations got a ceiling
And now I'm constantly cleaning
The skies you're dealing

Well my guts are on the floor
For you to adore me
And all I can be

See
What I say
On the horizon
The skies are grey
The skies are grey

Has this hit
Aah has this hit

Well I'm tired every night
Some things never seem quite right
I'm never fully content
I wish it were and went

Well, for one
If you're kind
Then people are cunts
They pull stunts
To stunt your progress

I know it's slow to digest
The way you're inside stress
You're not blessed
You're definitely not blessed
I don't deserve history repeating itself
Always see myself getting picked up and left back on the shelf
Again and again
Again and again

You're not my pen
You're my paper
You're not my heart
You're its breaker
You're its breaker
You're its breaker
You're its breaker
You're its breaker

    My OpinionOn his Zoo Kid bandcamp site, Archy says this about another song: "NOTE TO LISTENER: Perspectives change throughout." And I think that's true with a lot of his songs, including this one. A lot of times he seems to alternately address a girl who's usually called Blue or Baby Blue, or just Guuurl :) , and at other times he bitterly addresses some sort of controlling authority figure he seems to despise, like in the lines: "I don't deserve history repeating itself/
    always see myself getting picked up and left back on the shelf" and "you're not my pen, you're my paper/ you're not my heart, you're its breaker." Anyway, this song overall just seems to express his feelings of futility about life and possibly also his hope that the girl can help lift him out of those negative feelings that are dogging him.

    My Interpretation"Another disappointed soul
    Well I try
    I try to keep it in control
    Well I
    I will end up on the dole
    It's my life
    And now fall into it I go

    Well Blue, you've got me on the go
    So don't worry
    You'll never know
    Your eyes
    Are never cold
    To me
    Well at least that's what I was told"

    I feel like this is Archy's essential break up song. In the first two verses, he summarizes his relationship with this Blue girl, it's a constantly changing and hectic one, and Archy is finding himself disappointed as he realizes that it's spiraling into something out of his grasp. He's doing all he can to save this relationship and keep her with him, but even he's beginning to doubt if he loves her anymore -- "your eyes are never cold to me, at least that's what I'm told."

    "Girl
    You made
    My dreams come true
    It's all a clue
    It's all for you

    Myself is still eighteen
    In cue
    And it's all
    That I want to do"

    I love the emotion in his voice in these verses, as well as the ones that follow them. He sounds so distressed and angry, bitterly singing about how Blue used to make his dreams come true. He's tried and tried to stay with her, but this is his final clue that maybe things are really done. Whether or not it's her fault or his, he doesn't say, but he brings up his youth as a sort of defense, trying to excuse his mistakes.

    "I know when I look into the sky
    There is no meaning
    And I'm the only one believing
    That there's nothing to believe in

    I'm dreaming
    My aspirations got a ceiling
    And now I'm constantly cleaning
    The skies you're dealing"

    Definitely my favourite part of the song. Archy feels no emotion when he sees something beautiful, like the sky. He feels empty, almost nihilistic, claiming that there's nothing to believe in, and he feels alone in this philosophy, and even when thinking about his future and his dreams, he sets limits for himself, and refuses to allow his hopes to get too high. And Blue, this girl, is dealing skies, much like the sky that Archy finds no beauty in, as well as the one that relates to this saying: "the sky's the limit." At one point, Blue made him feel like anything was possible, like he could accomplish whatever he wanted, but now that they've been torn apart, Archy's cleaning out all those ideas of optimism that she left in his head.

    "Well my guts are on the floor
    For you to adore me
    And all I can be"

    This is a good summation of the last few very personal verses. Archy has finally admitted all of this, and perhaps, despite the bitterness and the doubt and the hate, he still craves the feelings Blue gave him, and hopes that somehow, she will hear him spilling his guts about her, and see he still has feelings about her, and just maybe, she might return them.

    I'm pretty sure the last half changes perspective to a grander scale, but keeps within the theme of feelings of betrayal and loss and general dislike of everybody around him.
