"Cat Rider" as written by and Erik Bodin David Jolicouer....
Two months ago now
Since she came around this house
Her answering machine's full
He thinks listening could give her doubts
But when this girl's made up her mind
She's made up her mind, made up her mind
Looking out to the horizon
No turnin' back
No wastin' time

Smooth cat rider
Stop bragging cause she broke your facade
Don't we all want to be stars in love
Stop playin' with the one that you love
Smooth cat rider
Stop ringin' cause it's gone to your head
So smooth
But she was smart instead
Stop playin' with the one that you love

I felt a new hole
Big old portraits of himself on the wall
Diamonds sculpt your face
This peacock is flying all over the place
The tiger's extra claws
No she's not impressed
Your laughs at stupid jokes
The only thing she missed
Now you can't stop looking back
Leaving messages

Smooth cat rider
Stop bragging cause she broke your facade
Don't we all want to be stars in love
Stop playin' with the one that you love
Smooth cat rider
Stop playin' cause it's gone to your head
So smooth
But she was smart instead
Stop playin' with the one that you love

Empty bottles, where to go next
Knowing what you truly missed
It's too late, can't rewind it
Can't get out your king-size bed
Now you're left with names to forget
Tryin' to heal from the pain
If only you could rewind it
Would not have acted the same
Smooth cat rider
She broke your facade
Smooth cat rider
Mmhmm

    My InterpretationThis song is so beautiful!!! With a melancholic subtext!

    After reading the lyrics a couple of times I think it's safe to assume that this song is about a break up or a guy trying to get a girl back after they have broken up, but things don't turn out in his favor.

    In FIRST/ verse, the girl starts off by stating the duration of the break up "Two months ago now"
    Since she came around this house". The guy has been desperately trying to get her back; calling and calling, but nobody answers.The girls seems to have made up her mind and doesn't want anything to do with the guy again "She's made up her mind, made up her mind" - IT'S OVER!

    SECOND VERSE. In his desperation to get her back, he starts using material and glamorous things to get her attention, but he fails because the girl was not interested in those things; all she adored about him was his personality/mannerisms... "Your laughs and stupid jokes"

    THIRD VERSE. I think here the breakup has finally broken him down and he has resorted to substance abuse "Empty bottles, where to go next,Knowing what you truly missed"; trying to drown his sorrows, reminiscing about the good old times, yearning to relive.

    Also, this is just my interpretation of the lyrics.
