In your little white wicker chair
Unsuspicious nobody cares for you
You're so fucked up again
You laugh at nothin' in the pouring rain
Try to tell yourself you're not insane
You fool, I hate you sometimes

Hey, you know it ain't coincidental that you're lost in place
It's drippin' off your face, and you're losin' your precious mind

Send me a postcard if you get that far
You got a couple pennies in your rusty jar
The truth you've been gone for awhile
It's hard lookin' at you when you look that way
With your one night stands and your sleep all days
Ooh you're such a slut sometimes

Hey, you know it ain't coincidental that you're lost in place
It's drippin' off your face, and you're losin' your precious mind

You're losing your mind

    General Comment"'Wicker Chair' is about seeing someone self-destruct and knowing there's not really anything you can do about it; it's melancholy."

    Song MeaningDuring an interview Caleb Followill said, "Wicker Chair is a song about alcoholism ... and just about kinda losing it and not really realising it"

    General Commentthis song is on the Holy Roller Novocaine EP. its the only song that didn't make it onto their first album "Youth and Young Manhood".... i cant understand why coz it is equally as good as california waiting, holy roller novocaine, molly's chambers and wasted time....

    oh yeah and the byron is pretty much right.

    It's so sad...he hates her becuase he thinks she's crazy.
    It's so heartfelt.

    General Commenteverytime i listen to it i think of a junkie-girlfriend that he loves sooo much but he cant help her anymore... shes gone so far (with drugs?) that shes losing her mind...
    the line ''Send me a postcard if you get that far'' makes me feel sooo......oh the magic of fair music....

    General CommentI think more, they're losing someone to drugs than insanity.
