Looking out of a second floor window
Planning out my exit wound
She�s so overlooked
This slaughter will get hotter and its
early overdue�
Trying on a makeshift halo
Kissing on my exit wound
Knowing well that the farthest place from heaven
lies just right inside your room�.
And I staggered off my love of love,
romance and valentine ways�.
She felt so cold, so cold
She froze under the sheets while I slept all day�

She will sleep here
In between the cracks
Just a flower with a broken back
�Waiting for dirty water�
Did you sleep alright�?
She�s giving beat stares from being beat all day
Indian eyes in the American way

�Hail Mary�s and ale�..
A Hailed Mary that ails...

Making off with the evening gown of my darling
as she comes unglued
Leaving this trail of misery across my face
as it shot right up to the moon�

Looking out of a second floor window
I can feel me falling through
Back down to where she sleeps
Back down to her so shiny and so new

This jezebel is bleeding from a place
That can never ever be replaced

Hail Mary�s and ale...

    General CommentI think there should be no question that this song is about the speaker taking a girl's virginity, and I think he feels at least a littl sorry for it.

    "Just a flower with a broken back"

    He feels like he has broken her beautiful spirit by doing the deed with her.

    "She's giving beat stares from being beat all day"

    He can see the look of guilt on her face, and it makes him feel guilty too.

    "This jezebel is bleeding from a place
    That can never ever be replaced"

    This is the part that makes the whole scene obvious. The girl has committed the act for the first time and she is experiencing the physical ramifications.

    Beautiful song because I think Northstar really depicts the first time how it is for a lot of people... it's pleasing, but at the same time it's awkward, confusing, and a little scary. Northstar had amazing talent when it came to lyrics. Too bad they broke up.

    General CommentIts about a husband who is miserable with his life and as a result, gets drunk and beats his wife as a way to very his frustration and stagnation. He refers to kissing his exit wound and exit wound of course being a scapegoat refers to his wife/ lover. Staggering off his love of love, romance, and valentine ways signified his change as he gets drunk. As he adopts his symptoms of intoxication he looses his sense of right and wrong and awareness of the people he loves. As for the suicide reference, it could signify his guilt for doing what he has done of refer to the misery that is his life. Just an all around beautiful song. My favorite. :D
