A thousand indecisions
launched from the table for one
lately they've been killing me
they were left unsung
I desire stop motion sickness
the potion in your breath companionment
abandonment death a thousand insecurities
dumped forever dumped endeavors
I’m awakened by the laugh comfort
in your sound whatever
I’m enamored by your smile
you put the words right
into my mouth
I love my antidote to death almost
died twice today
I wait on you to bail me
like everyone else
I confess lay my weary head on your chest
give you everything I never had

    General CommentThis song which at a time was refered to by BA member Marko as the most "astronomical song next to Jessica's Sucide" Bad Astronaut has done. The song feature guest vocals and guitar by talented Scott Garth..he sings "almost died..twice today...."

    The song itself seems in my opinion to be about placing faith in someone..finally. After being laet down by people and the narrators own self, there is finally a psoitive influence in his/her life. an "antidote" to all that was negative, a final presence of comfort and rest.

    This is one of if not my favorit BA song

    General CommentHe seems filled with a lot of self doubt, and talks about his perceived failures and insecurities. It's about a drug problem, and how someone, a girl, mother, brother, god, comforts him, and makes him strong again.

    General Commenti agree with mauriciol, although it seems obvious to me that this songs about a girl.

    General Commentyeah, this song is absolutely amazing!
    the soft and beautiful verses leading into more aggressive choruses, and then finally achieving what he struggled for.. it almost makes me cry everytime

    General Commenti see this song as an insecure infatuation with something (possibly drugs) or someone, the last line is "lay my leery head on your chest" - slight differant meaning to "weary", still relating to the theme of distrust but trying to build some. one of my fav BA songs :)
