Hey
I retraced my steps
I dusted my memory for fingerprints
Your haunted head
Is nowhere in sight
Yeah we were on a roll
Unstoppable now

Unexaminted like a flyover town
A siren describing a strangers house
While we trophy around
And light ourselves up
Cause we need to remember about as much as my drink needs an orange umbrella baby this kind of stuff
Don't happen to smart kids like us

Tell me how was I supposed to know
I'd be the one who would let you go, now
I stumble out of
Yeah I stumble round a room that don't have walls anymore

Hey
I didn't feel a thing
Call it a calling
My speciality
Come the night
Well there's no need to start
Wrapping my rattled head
Around your absent heart now
Volunteers awake in a dream
With transplant scars up and down your sleeves and squeaky minds to feed
Before the shock of finding that nothing profound comes from all the magnificent shit you talk about
Babe when that one wears off
You're gonna need a whole new shock

Tell me how was I supposed to know
I'd be the one who would let you go, now
I stumble out of
Yeah I stumble round a room that don't have walls anymore
A room that don't have a door anymore
In circles running my hand along the wall

Tell me how was I supposed to know
I'd be the one who would let you go, now
I stumble out of
Yeah i stumble round a room that don't have walls anymore

    Song Meaning"It's a song about that precise moment, when someone realises that they've taken everything for granted and fucked everything up. But really trying to zone right in on that exact moment, not necessarily the events leading up or the aftermath, but trying to pinpoint that exact moment. So it’s almost like the protagonist of the song is almost saying... It’s sort of someone in shock. The protagonist of the song is in shock as they are still not sure what just happened happened... But it’s funnier than that"
