Last time when you were waiting for me
I tried to tell you all we had was a
Wrapped up scene like I knew that it would
It all seems thin but it sure feels good

'Cause it's the best I've seen
When you fall down good
Sink in the water
But you're walkin' on wood

This time, what are you waiting for?
Is it your time to walk away?
Because the law's unseen, levels all good
The hurdles all down like another time would

'Cause it's the best I've seen
What a fall down should
Sink in the water
But you're walkin' on wood

Last time seen, walkin' on wood
Downstream drifting like a long time should

But now we're invisible so all that's good
The law's unseen, levels all good
Downstream drifting like a long time should
But now we're invisible so all that's good

Next time and I could wait forever
Old times because I thought I'd never
Wrap that scene like I knew that I should
It all seemed thin but it sure felt good

'Cause it's the best I've seen
When you fall down good
Sink in the water
But you're walkin' on wood
Walkin' on wood

Last time, walkin' on wood
(Now we're invisible)
Last time, walkin' on wood
(Now we're invisible so all that's good)

Last time, walkin' on wood
(Now we're invisible)
Last time, walkin' on wood
(Now we're invisible so all that's good)

Last time, walkin' on wood
(Now we're invisible)
Last time, walkin' on wood
(Now we're invisible so all that's good)

Last time, walkin' on wood
(Now we're invisible)
Last time, walkin' on wood

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Holiday

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.
