August is hanging
This town out to dry
I bet we'll be the last ones
To leave town

Someones gotta reach
I guess that someone is me
I bet you'll the last star shot down

Lets be off tonight
While we're awake enough to drive

By this time tomorrow, we'll be alive

Yea, you're reading me lines from a song your wrote
It was something about a dragon of a girl you knew
That you lost on this road to hell

With me

Call it fate or bad luck
Nothing mystifies us
I bet you'll be the last star
Shot down

Summer's droppin' hints
While my hearts workin' edge
Walks the dusk of midday down to it's grave

Braver men than me
Have walked the lines asleep

Sing the praise of road to hell with me

Call it fate or bad luck
Nothing mystifies us
I bet you'll be the last star
Shot down

    to me, it signify's the heartbreak, maybe that of David Moore, fresh out of high school, and maybe spending the summer with a close friend who has always been there, all their life until it comes time to move on, and start a new life. it quote's the month "august", generally the month when people pack up and move off to college. It means a lot to me because I lost my best friend that august, after the best summer of my life, just after graduating high school, then came time when everyone moved on, and this song always reminds me of that, and ill always miss her.

    split lip just wanted a change of direction and a change of style/lyrical content mainly so they changed to Chamberlain because they wanted to seperate from their more hardcore roots.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
