"Intruders" as written by and Peter Silberman Michael Lerner....
Maybe when i’m older, i’ll be clearer
More attuned and understanding
Well, i’m ready
I wrote a list of my demands and then I burned an older version

So to start with, i’ll start over
I’ll cut my hair and cut the power
So who am I without weapons? without defense to arm my guards against intruders?
Well this is my house, so fuck your doubts and your cute battalion
‘cause i’m steady
And when my double scales the wall
I’ll know exactly where he’s landing and i’ll surprise him

Then when he’s captured, with his hands bound
I beg for answers to all my questions, like
“what happened?
Why’d you let me let you in when I was younger?
And why’d I need to?”

    My InterpretationI think this song is about getting hurt from a relationship, specifically by letting someone in on your life, your weaknesses, your deep thoughts and hidden feelings. When you get intimate/close with someone, you let them in on a huge part of yourself that you have kept hidden from others (especially when it's your first serious relationship, which seems to be the case in this song since he mentions being younger and less understanding), and when the relationship ends you feel so vulnerable to the outside world because you've opened yourself up to them and now they are gone. So over time he's develop "defenses" from "intruders" who try getting back in, meaning he might be blocking out other people who want him to open up to them, because he is scared of getting hurt again.
