nobody has his own place in the back. he keeps it in order, a neat little shack and every day he goes down to the beach looking for a clam or an oyster to eat. he said, "i'm not unhappy, there is nothing to fear. i'm just trying to disappear" he said, "i know what i'm doing, i know who i am. i'm the number one fan of the invisible man" he's covered in sweat from his head to his toes but what he's looking for nobody knows. it's not there and it's not here, he said "i'm just trying to disappear" nobody stood in the middle of the street where he drew a chalk outline around his feet then he smiled and lifted his face to the sky flapping his arms like he was trying to fly. he said, "i may not make it to that great beyond but i'll never be found with my feet on the ground. i'm pretty far gone but i'm still here. can nobody help me to disappear?" nobody sat on a bench in the park. waiting for the day to turn into dark. then he waved goodbye to the setting sun and did a little dance when the day was done. he said, "the shadows loom, it will be night soon. and the stars will shine over a rising moon. i have nothing to lose, i have nothing to fear. i'm just trying to disappear". nobody went for a walk in the rain. i lent him my boots and my walking cane. the cane they found hanging from a tree. but those boots will never walk back to me. he's not far off but he's nowhere near. that's obvious but it's not very clear. nobody talks, nobody hears. he said, "i'm just trying to disappear"

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.
