this is a birthday pony this is a strange kind of rest because i feel like a guest when i'm right here at home i'm not right here at home i opened up these accounts all these separate accounts because i can't comprehend the single ride to the end i needed something to do and so i split into two but now the pattern takes hold i find i'm losing control laugh boy i don't want to be free this is a birthday pony

    General CommentIan once said in an interview that the way he is on tour and the way he is at home is completely different. maybe that will help with the lyric interpretation

    General CommentI've heard that this song is about having children when there's no love in a relationship but plenty of money. So, the birthday pony is basically a way of buying your family's love without any sincerity. The line 'I needed something to do, and so I split into two' is about having kids just because it seems like the thing to do.

    General CommentPretty obviously about the disconnect between home life and work life/being in the band/touring etc. He makes the point that he started the band to give him purpose in life but now it's grown beyond anything he could have imagined.
