You kissed me once
And you kissed me twice
With your mess of slobbering lips
With dribble in my brow (bra??)
I wait until you turned around
And wiped it on my pant leg

Oh now I'll sign this paper for everyone to see
And now I'm up here singing for everyone to hear
Now I'll sign this paper for everyone to see
Now I'm up here singing for everyone to hear

You
Especially you
It's all for you
It's because of you

My lungs are filled with smoke
Eyes light and hazy from too many tears
Red and glossy from too many beers
And my stomach shapes into one big knot
My stomach shapes into one big knot

Oh now let's stop hangin' around this lame town
Take another lookin' at your stupid frown
Looking down, down, down at the ground
Looking down, down, down at the ground

You gotta turn the other way to avoid that clown
I gotta turn the other way to avoid that clown
I gotta turn the other way to avoid that clown
I gotta turn the other way to avoid that clown

And I'm amazed at the (gamut??)
Oh I'm amazed at the clarity
Yeah I'm amazed at the rage in me

Crushing
Crushing
Crushing
I'm getting crushed
From loving you too much

You kissed her once
And you kissed her twice
Now I can no longer be so nice

With the fury on my brow
It's all your fault jerk
What's that sittin' on your pant leg?

Yeah now I'll sign this paper for everyone to see
And now I'm up here singing for everyone to hear
Now I'll sign this paper for everyone to see
Now I'm up here singing for everyone to hear

You
Especially you
It's all for you
It's because of you

My lungs are filled with smoke
Eyes light and hazy from too many tears
Red and glossy from too many beers
And my stomach shapes into one big knot

Crushing
Crushing
Crushing
I'm getting crushed
From loving you too much

Oh now let's stop hangin' around this lame town
Take another lookin' at your stupid frown
Looking down, down, down at the ground
Looking down, down, down at the ground

And I'm amazed at the (gamut??)
Oh I'm amazed at the clarity
Yeah I'm amazed at the rage in me

My stomach shapes into one big knot

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.

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.
