"Lotus Eater" as written by and Mark Foster....
[Verse 1]
Well I could never be like you
I don't ever talk like that
Smiling with a sparkling drink
And stumbling in your lipstick mess
Molly was the loss of me
Yeah, it was a tragedy
But you keep hanging on
Making a look
Waiting around
For someone to take you home

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And I know you know I'm not the one
I'm sorry I was late, I didn't wanna come

[Chorus 1]
Oh no, man, it's just that that looks fun

[Verse 2]
Well my eyes are wandering
Can we just eat the news?
And dance around the room
In a scattered point of views
Well take my hand and breathe
Babe, just count to three
I wish that I could blink
And turn all your words into ice cubes
So I could fill my drink

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And I know you know I'm not the one
I'm sorry I was late
Next time I just won't come

[Chorus 2]
Oh no, man, I think I gotta run!

[Verse 3]
Well hey, what's that called?
When you're sitting on your couch
And having fun, just being by yourself
Wondering why
We can't commit to love
The things that we got
We always want more of

[Pre-Chorus 3, Spoken]
I know you'd rather have me fake it
But I'm not gonna make it

[Chorus 2]
Yeah yeah yeah, man I gotta run!

    My InterpretationThis song pretty much about one night stands, but I also interpret it as the failure to find connection at all to the other person. Like moving day to day able to find the excitement but missing the passion linked within it and realizing that there will always be more afterwards and that its nearly a never-ending cycle...but that's just me.
