It was in the lobby, when I set my sights on you
Should have kissed you in the elevator
But I was too scared to
It was in the morning, when I made up my mind
I want you staple gunned
Right to my side all of the time


Do I have to spell it out for you
Or scream it in your face
Oh, the chemistry between us
Could destroy this place
Do I have to spell it out for you
Or whisper in your ear
Oh, just stop right there
I think that we've got something here

We all alone when I finally made a pass at you
It didn't work, and no it never does
But you know how I do
We were all alone when I made up my mind
I want you staple gunned
Right to my side all of the time

    This is the only band in the entire planet, galaxy, world, universe, etc that I have or
    will ever get a tattoo for. I've heard it a million times, why get a band tattooed on you?
    what if they break up? Hahaha dillgaf? they saved me a thousand times and then some.

    Anyway, this song wasn't intended to be an intense love song. Originally, they wanted to
    show people that sometimes chemistry isn't always People didn't understand the
    meaning and began to turn into what it's not but then again songs are interpreted as different
    things to different people. But I just want to let anyone who's listening know what it really

    Being stappleguned to someone's side ALL of the time, hurts, it suffocates you. Attraction
    can be explosive in the worst of ways. He's just saying that sometimes it burns so much that
    it can damage people. "The chemistry between us could DESTROY this place" he doesn't mean
    destroy with little butterflies and ladybugs, no, no he means destroy as in, a bomb, something
    that is simply negative. The music video they made is the meaning of this song. They show
    us abusive relationships, screaming, fighting, tears, ocd, depression, real life situations.

    Sometimes wanting a person so badly can turn into something destructive. Maybe they're talking
    from experience, which I would believe because most if not all their songs are pure experience.

    And that's what makes Nick's words so strong, the emotion behind it. He's a masterpiece<3

    General CommentWhen I first heard it, I noticed imideatly how different in tempo it was than any other TSC songs I ever heard. To be honest, I wasn't so sure if I was gonna like the change.

    But I love it. They way he writes hasn't change at all with the new album. Its still so, I don't even know. He's so good with words. I'ts one of my favorites on One Fell Swoop
