Let's assume you were right
And play the game of charm and strange and satellite
And when we've all had our fun
Deflate the stars and put away the sun

And so we can call it day

'Cause I'll never prove that my motives were pure
So let's remove any question of cure
'Cause even though you've made it pretty obscure
Baby, it's clear, from here
You're losing your atmosphere
From here, you're losing it

So let's assume it was true
'Cause baby can't lift a hand to swear to you
And what's the use of defense?
The hangers-on are too far-gone for evidence

And that one was lost from the first


So have it your way
Whatever makes the best resume
Whatever you can throw in
Wash, rinse, and spin till it's spun away, okay

But I won't be sticking around

    General CommentThe song is about someone who got dumped finally giving up on a relation's chance of ever coming back and thier chance to ever prove to that person (and herself) that what she did was for good.

    The first verse is summarizing their relationship and the third is her telling him that she's not going to be pushed aside anymore, and that he can do f' himself in a way. Because he can't last, he's losing his atmosphere, or that high of sucess or morality that he left her for. No matter how he twists the story of what happened. "spun away"

    "Cause I'll never prove that my motives were pure
    so let's remove any question of cure"


    I've accepted that I never convince you that I loved you,
    Let's just make this final: It's over.

    General CommentInterestingly, there are a lot of physics terms here. "Charm" and "strange" are names for characteristics of quarks (subatomic particles) The whole thing about deflating the stars & putting away the sun... it sounds to me like a breakup with a physicist.

    I'm not sure I really believe that. But what else could "play the game of charm and strange and satellite" mean?
