"Pioneer to the Falls" as written by and Paul Banks Samuel Fogarino....
Show me the dirt pile
And I will pray that the soul can take
Three stowaways
Vanish with no guile
And I will not pay
But the soul can wait
The soul can wait

Well it is still pretty wet
With all these leaks
We'll be fine
We'll be fine

But if it's still pretty wet
With all these leaks
We'll be fine, oh...
And supervise

Show me the dirt pile
And I will pray that the soul can take
Three stowaways
And you vanish with no guile
And I will not pay
But the soul can wait
I felt you so much today

And oh you try..
You tried.. straight into my heart
You fly.. straight into my heart
Girl, I know you try...
You fly.. straight into my heart
You fly.. straight into my heart
But here comes the fault (fall)

So much for make believe, I'm not sold
So much of pain's deceit, I'm not prepared to know
Your heart makes me feel
Your heart makes me bold
For always and ever
I'll never let go
Always concealed
Safe and inside -- alive

Show me the dirt pile
And I will pray that the soul can take
Three stowaways
In a passion it broke
I pull the black from the grey
But the soul can wait
I felt you so much today

    My OpinionThe first page of this thread is making me positively crap myself laughing. "I think it's about going out with that special someone?" Really? Uh, okay.

    Anyway, from the first listen to this song, I immediately thought of a man kneeling at the grave of his lover with their children/family, begging her to take them with her. After reading the comments regarding the song being about the St. Guillen murder, it makes so much sense. The three stowaways could be referring to St. Guillen's best friend who was the last to see her alive, as well as her mother and sister.

    Basically, this song is pretty, but it's eerie as hell.
