"Lost It to Trying" as written by and Ryan W. Lott....
What will we do now?
We've lost it to trying
We've lost it to trying

What will we do now?
We've lost it to trying
We've lost it to trying

What can we say now?
Our mouths only lying
Our mouths only lying

What can we say now?
Our mouths only lying
Our mouths only lying

Give in and get out
We rise in the dying
We rise in the dying

Give in and get out
We rise in the dying
We rise in the dying

Give in and get out
We rise in the dying
We rise in the dying

Give in and get out
We rise in the dying
We

What will we do now?
We've lost it to trying
We've lost it to trying

What will we do now?
We've lost it to trying
We've lost it to trying

    General CommentThis seems to be one of their songs that doesn't lean towards meaning of lyrics, but more towards the sound and the movement it creates with music.

    General CommentWell obviously it's mostly straightforward breakup stuff:

    'What will we do now? We lost it...'
    'What can we say now?
    Our mouths only lying'

    All self-explanatory.

    'Lost it to trying' is a bit more subtle, but in light of 'Give in and get out', clearly there were incompatibilities in the relationship, they wanted different things, but interestingly they tried *too hard* to make it work *on their own individual terms*, rather than loving more generously the way things simply were. Until they lost it to trying.

    The crucial line is 'We rise in the dying'. Better to have loved and lost? This love failed but they emerge stronger out of it? The EP version video (youtube.com/…) makes it seem much scarier than that though! Like they agree they can't go on together, but they also can't go on apart, so enter a suicide pact, hoping to rise to a better place where they can finally be happy together.

    Pretty cool for so few lyrics :)
