(Here we are!)

Can you tell that story? It's my favourite one.
I'm a fucking disappointment, I can't entertain you anymore.
These stupid states of mind.
(Everyone!)
Punishing me all the time.
But don't cross your boundaries and think that it's cool.
Misguided by darkness and lost on the road.

I'm such a sucker for the rain.

Here we are, crashing once again into the centre of your moonlit face, our caved in ribs.
Your tears, they fall on my tongue and our lips are letting go.
We lay on the side of the road.

(Go!)

Pull the trigger tight and watch our distances explode. (Explode!)
If distance seems forever where's your home sweet home?
If anything should happen to me, I'll want you to know.
I've loved you since, ever since then.
Don't dance around me, I know what it means.
No communication cannot be received.

But I'm such a sucker for the rain, yeah.
(Oh)

(Here we are!)
Crashing once again into the centre of your moonlit face, our caved in ribs.
Your tears, they fall on my tongue and our lips are letting go.
We lay on the side of the road.

(Don't... chase...your...nightmares!)

(Yeah!)

Here we are.
Crashing once again into the centre of your moonlit face, our caved in ribs.
Your tears, they fall, our lips are locked and let the girls in.
I can never let them, never let them go.

(The side of the road.)

So take a deep breath and chase them with mine!
Your southern hearts would tell a deep, wild mind!

    My Interpretationpersonally I think this song, Caraphernelia, and One Hundred Sleepless Nights are all connected (about the same thing)
    in Caraphernelia it talks about a struggling relationship/a girl who is over Vic and moved on to "so much more" basically cheated.
    and the line "talking to my mom about this little girl from Texas" brings me to Texas Is Forever which I think is about this same girl who cheated. my only proof is "if Texas is forever where's your home sweet home" / "in sure your southern hospitality won't mind".
    in one hundred sleepless nights it's kind of obviously it's about Vic's ex girlfriend who cheated and got pregnant and left him.
    I'm probably not right that these songs are about the same person but idk this is just what I think.

    General CommentThat’s a purely self-indulgent song for us because it’s really fast and that’s what we grew up listening to. We love all of the Fat Wreck Chords artists, NOFX, Lagwagon, and the bands we cut our teeth on when we were in high school. It comes naturally for us. With my brother Mike playing drums, he owns those types of beats. I actually had an interview with John Oates of Hall and Oates. The first thing he said was, ‘I want whatever your drummer is taking because I need some energy!’ [Laughs] He loved how fast it was. Lyrically, it closes the book on a topic I’ve been singing about for the last three records. It’s about a relationship that kept going and had a lot of ups and downs. We were both able to stop thinking about it and have a mutual respect for each other’s lives. That was the end of it, which is nice.
