By design by neglect
For a fact or just for effect
When they met where they connect
At the confluence of travel and sex
More a trip than a quest
Plunged into the deeply freckled breast
Where to now? If I had to guess
I'm afraid to say Antarctica's next

or Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Where the unknown won't even go
To Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Where the unknown don't even go

Home's solitude with options
Artificial chaos isn't one of em
Return there crestfallen
Chagrin fell out of her apron
No profound sound no special effects
The continent tipped and she just quietly left
Chagrin falls on our heads
Not in a gush but in maddening droplets

Chagrin falls ( in Chagrin Falls Ohio )
Chagrin Falls ( where the unknown don't even go )
Chagrin falls ( in Chagrin Falls Ohio )
So falls Chagrin Falls ( where the unknown don't even go )
So falls chagrin falls
So falls chagrin falls

    General CommentPerhaps the song is saying that Chagrin Falls, Ohio is a pretty crappy place...Although love the drum work in this tune

    General CommentCalvin from Calvin & Hobbes is assumed to be from Chagrin Falls, I know that has nothing to do with the song, just thought I'd mention that.

    General CommentApparently, this song is a veiled slam at Clear Channel radio. Chagrin Falls, Ohio is apparently where the home office of that hellish company.

    General CommentThis song is about a man who has an affair while travelling (most likely on business). It seems both parties may have been travelling to this place. He comes home to his marriage, feels he must tell his wife, and she leaves. He has regret (chagrin) come over him, slowly and steadily, like maddening droplets.
