"Crutch" as written by and Kenny/young Craig....
It kicks in like an ugly sound and I'm split divides me.
Skull collides.
Such a long way down.
Such a big big bad.
Such a bright white light.
Rubber crutch lands so hard.

I got to know the way, today
'Cause you fly with me again, away

I got to know the way, today
'Cause you fly with me again, away

This memory of you holds more than a photograph.
It's much more than a book of old pictures locked away without a name.

Some sit down.
Let the rest decide.
Over what divided you.
Besides, it's a long time now.
Yea, so far away.
No one cares too much over what happened to you.

I got to know the way, today
'Cause you fly with me again, away

I got to know the way, today
'Cause you fly with me again, away

(I got to know the way, today)
('Cause you fly with me again, away)

It kicks in like an ugly sound and I'm split divides me.
Skull collides.
Such a long way down.
Such a big big bad.
Such a bright white light.
Rubber crutch lands so hard.

This memory of you holds more than a photograph.
It's much more than a book of old pictures locked away without a name.

This memory of you holds more than a photograph.
It's much more than a stack of oldâ?? pictures locked away, Dahlia.

    General Commentthis song is by far my fav pinback song.... i think its about him losing a girl and he is finally realizing how much he misses her like a "bright light" it flashes infront of him and he remembers the memories and theyre so important now because he cant have her anymore or be able to create more memories so he's left to linger on the old ones and he doesnt understand why the relationship ever ended... thats my guess. its a great song either way

    General Commenti agree with the first entry. theres a gap and she isnt there to fill it. but i dont know if he wants her back, because shes just not right.

    this song is perfect, regardless.

    General Commenti thought this song was about how he killed her so that he could always remember her better. He loved her so much that he wanted to always remember her, so he killed her.
