Flattered that you think I warrant ugliness
Gutters drain West, mud made a mess of us
It's time to leave this place

I'd saw through your wrist to find a better trap that fits
I'd saw through your traps to find a better you
A part of you that lasts
I saw through your trap and into my own wrists
Saw we were through, red ribbons spill to blue
A sight to sore your eyes

I got this dress I'm hiking it around this waist of laughter
Slow dance alone with no one to the sound of four hands clapping
Congratulations to you both, I hope somewhere you're happy
If there's a moral to this story then I wish you'd show me

Hair in the blood, fly in the disappointment
Rubber, I'm glue, I'll write the book on you
It's sticking to my face

You need a little less than what you take for granted
This is the sip that's drinking back from you
Blacking out your eyes
You need a little more suppression of your appetites
This is your honeymoon, in separate rooms
It's neither sweet nor bright

I got this dress I'm hiking it around this waist of laughter
Slow dance alone with no one to the sound of four hands clapping
Congratulations to you both, I hope somewhere you're happy
If there's a moral to this story then I wish you'd show me

I made a word to give this state a name, this game a guess
I call it "sluttering" it means as little as your little test
You are your worst revenge, your very means, they have no ends
This is a story you won't tell the kids we'll never have
If you hear this song a hundred times it still won't be enough

    General Commenti love this song, but have no idea what it means. it just reminds me of losing your mind completely and laughing histerically.

    General CommentI think this song describes a rough break up of a couple who intended to get married and have children. The last line of the song kind of confirms that. Most of the metaphors throughout the song create a beautiful imagery of depression, anger, and suicidal tendencies. This is one of my favorite songs from Jawbreaker. Truly a break through song lyrically.

    General CommentThe dress could be another wedding metaphor i.e. hiking the dress around the waste of laughter means that his relationship with the girl was a joke and he feels like an idiot, and then slow dancing with no one could be interpreted as him being alone at their wedding. Even if I'm wrong the song is definatly about his girlfriend cheating on him.
