hey
where you are is where you'll stay
waltz right over to the war
to drown you out
hey
where you are is where you'll stay
au revior love to see you gone
love you gone
hey
where you are is where you'll stay
no room in my movie so out you go
hey
where you are is where you'll stay
au revior love to see you gone
love you gone
come on cue up the violins
when we kick like screaming kids
i'll cue up the cute villains and
bank on the chemicals to kick in
why you always wanna go blue
when everybody can hear you
hey
where you are is where you'll stay
waltz right over to the war
to drown you out
hey
where you are is where you'll stay
au revior love to see you gone
love you gone
someone cue up the violins
when we kick like kids
cut up the cute villains
cause they make sinning
like living here
in my city dear
why the hell you gotta go blue
when all these people can hear you
hey
where you are is where you'll stay

    General CommentI can't beleive noone has commented on this song yet. Its one of their best songs. I loved when they closed with it when i saw them live.
    I think that this song is about when you ahve someone in your life that you just have to cut out. You might wish they could be a part of it, but you are better off without them. I remeber this song always made me think of my exgirlfriend, who was supposed to be my friend. But she always made me miserable, so i just ignnored her from then on. No room in my movie so out you go.

    General Commentthis song is good, very catchy and even has some alright lyrics on here. i think this was the perfect closing song to this cd. i really like hey mercedes, but i think that braid (old band) was twice as good as this. but this was only their first album, and im still really interested into hearing them mature especially since braid matured so well. oh ya, and another reverence to a movie in this song. i have to keep a tally.

    General CommentOkay, I guess I'm stupid, but what does "Go blue" mean? And why can't you do it in public?

    General Comment"go blue" means to turn sad all of a sudden. it's basically insinuating a cry for attenition. "why the hell you gotta go blue when all these people can see you".. it's definitely about a cry for attention.

    General CommentLet's go blue is also the chant for Michigan College Sports teams. Braid and Hey Mercedes are both from Michigan so im thinking that the title has a double meaning?

    General Commenti dont think it has to do with michigan, and i thought braid was a chicago band, thats close to michigan, but.....
    So i think its about somebody who likes to throw tantrums in public. I know a couple people like this, and like Bob, i really love to see them gone.
