"Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks" as written by and Aaron B. Dessner Matthew D. Berninger....
Leave your home
Change your name
Live alone
Eat your cake

Vanderlyle, crybaby, cry
Though the waters are risin'
Still no surprisin' you
Vanderlyle, crybaby, cry
Man its all been forgiven
Swans are a swimmin'
I'll explain everything to the geeks

All the very best of us
String ourselves up for love
All the very best of us
String ourselves up for love
All the very best of us
String ourselves up for love
All the very best of us
String ourselves up for love

Vanderlyle, crybaby, cry
Though the waters are risin'
Still no surprisin' you
Vanderlyle, crybaby, cry
Man its all been forgiven
Swans are a swimmin'
I'll explain everything to the geeks

Hangin' from chandeliers
Same small world
At your heels

All the very best of us
String ourselves up for love
All the very best of us
String ourselves up for love
All the very best of us
String ourselves up for love
All the very best of us
String ourselves up for love

Vanderlyle, crybaby, cry
Though the waters are risin'
Still no surprisin' you
Vanderlyle, crybaby, cry
Man its all been forgiven
Swans are a swimmin'
I'll explain everything to the geeks

I'll explain everything to the geeks
I'll explain everything to the geeks

    General CommentNot sure why nobody mentioned this but the song is clearly begins with someone who just got divorced.

    Leave your home
    Change your name
    Live alone
    Eat your cake

    I think "geeks" is a condescending term (or jab that stems from bitter irritation) for the people in his life that need to know everything about the breakup and treat it as entertainment. He's trying to move on. He has freedom that he didn't have before but can't quite get "unstrung" to enjoy it like he should.

    Definitely about divorce though.
