Full count satuday night
I grab onto you,
It's just our luck
There's only pitchers left to hit,
With every loss the Mets take I get Walks off you game for game

Bell rings seven a.m.
It's all in your dreams,
I guess it's cool to stay in school
unless it's you,
So all they learn is what you can't wake up to say,
Anything goes today.

What makes me think I'm gonna find peace again
It only comes when no one's home but you,
If what you walk in with,
Sit with your friends is a never-miss
Is it the temporary looks that shrink to fit?

No one gets up to laughs anymore
There's no more jokes if we can't lie back down,
Everything drifts away
Nothing's attached to stay
Everyone moves into the shad when it's too bright out
And they just wait it out.

And if I'm sitting across from an old friend
Best of both worlds
And a pretty neat end
How come you're making me mad again.

If the point is to end up with a backyard
Give up all the easy and take all the hard
How come we only got this so far,
And the truth is you CAN get you see fit
You will but then you won't like it all comes down to how much how quick
And now I've one wrapped in the future
One stuck in the after
One set to stay right here

    And if I'm sitting across from an old friend Best of both worlds And a pretty neat end How come you're making me mad again.

    That is my favorite part of the song. This song is a fantastic, well-written masterpiece. If you have not heard it, go listen to it now!

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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?

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.
