"October" as written by and James Mercer Brian Burton....
So you showed me around your town
To hell again and back
Our love has served to alienate
All the friends you depend on
I know it might seem odd

I know it might seem odd
Cause your not the only one
I remember my self as a lonely child
So I was
And you've got me wrong
You've got me wrong

(Ground your sense of worth
Til the spark of morning burns
And all those searching eyes
Could scold your tender mind)

Remember what they say
There's no shortcut to a dream
It's all blood and sweat
And life is what you manage in between

But what you don't know
Is you're too young and eager to love
Seething eyes
So you're about to get into
The ditch that you opened up

(Ground your sense of worth
Til the spark of morning burns
And all those searching eyes
Could scold your tender mind)

So the stars aligned
And leave you behind
You wanna sow it up
Here come the light
Of an autumn moon
Sister you know enough
But for now just let it go
Don't run, don't rush
Just flow

Through the give and take you had to learn
How to cross the coals and not get burned
But you're really just a little girl
Playing in the park until the sun goes down

Sometime you want to rise
One did it's our desire
No doubt you think you braided your own hair
So you're all grown up

Should you want to cross the line
Which way do you want to fly?
Pretend that love could help you find your way
But you got me wrong
Yeah you got me wrong

    General CommentHe's definitely talking about naivety.
    This song is amazing.

    "But what you don't know is you're too young and eager to love."
    In my mind, that ^ is the key line to naivety in the song.
    You never know though, a lot of artitst write about general things with a serious hidden message, you know?
    The artist is really the only person who knows what it's about.

    The song makes me feel like i'm living in the 70s:)
