A dark entry hole for a darkened door
A nice night to speak at the length of this week
When for the first time in a long time I haven't had to search for the words
For the first time in a long time, I'm yours

Distracted and cryptic, you changed the locks
I've spent most of my life inside the back of my mind
But for the first time in a long time I truly had to search for my thoughts
For the first time in a long time, I'm lost

I've reminded myself what we are
We are what we are

You don't deserve to erase all our days, you see
Those well-traveled states, they all lead to our gate, but for
The first time in a long time, I shouldn't have to search for the floor
For the first time in a long time, I'm worse

And I've reminded myself what we are
We are what we are

I've reminded myself what we are
We are what we are
We are what we are

There's nothing left to explain
So I carried every letter like a hearse
But it's work, you seeking
Thoughts is in the interest of others

There's really no need for us to repeat
There's really no need for one more of me
There's no more of me

    General CommentCompared to the Intersections album, this song is a much better 2nd track than "Spinning Thread." A few reasons...

    1. The lyrics are genuine- they are spaced out and well written. "Spinning Thread" is a migraine of a poem. This song is way more refreshing.
    2. This is a hopeful tune. Musically and lyrically. Paired with "Open Casket" it flows nicely as an optimistic following thought.
    3. That polyrhythmic drum beat at the end is sick. All of the instruments in this song gel together really well.

    I think it's a song about a man maturing in his relationship with the woman he loves. The relationship has been rough before, but he is realizing that he ought to be with her. Lines like "you don't deserve to erase all our days" sound selfish, while "there's really no need for one more of me" echoes a selfless sentiment. I like that the chords at the breakdown sound more innocent, and so the lyrics ring out with more clarity: he's tired of his selfishness. He's realizing that giving is more important than receiving.

    This has grown to be one of my favorite Into It. Over It. songs. The lyrical content is some of his best.
