Everyday, I pray a little bit about you, love
Everyday, you seem to be the thing I'm thinking of
But what I'd do for you, I just can't say
Considering the kind of games you play
You say you'll do one thing and then the next
Minute you are gone so long
I'm moving on and I'm alone again.

Oh, someday I hope to see your face around again
Come and play is what you used to say to me, my friend
Every time you finally pull me out
Your little hide and seek just makes me shout
I barely got to twenty one and you were gone
And I'm alone again

Everyday, I pray a little bit about you, love
Everyday, you seem to be the thing I'm thinking of
But what I'd do for you, I just can't say
Considering the kind of games you play
You say you'll do one thing and then the next
Minute you are gone so long
I'm moving on and I'm alone again.

And I'm alone again
And I'm alone again
And I'm alone again
And I'm alone again
And I'm alone again
And I'm alone again
And I'm alone again

    It's about the basic mind games girls play on guys after breaking up with them, and keeping them around as a back up plan.

    What is this about barely got to 21? Maybe it's not a lover, but a family member.

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?

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
