Song Meaning
Verse 1
[The Pantaloon]
Verse 2
Your grandpa died
When you were nine
They said he had
Lost his mind
You have learned
Way too soon
You should never trust the pantaloon
Verse 3
You are tired
You are hurt
A moth ate through
Your favorite shirt
And all your friends fertilize
The ground you walk
Lose your mind
Verse 4
[Semi-Automatic]
Verse 5
I'm never what I like
I'm double-sided
And I just can't hide
I kinda like it
When I make you cry
Cause I'm twisted up, I'm twisted up, inside my mind
Verse 6
[Forest]
Verse 7
Down in the forest, we'll sing a chorus
One that everybody knows
Hands held higher, we'll be on fire
Singing songs that nobody wrote
Verse 8
Down in the forest, we'll sing a chorus
One that everybody knows
Hands held higher, we'll be on fire
Singing songs that nobody wrote
Verse 9
[Screen]
Verse 10
I'm standing in front of You
I'm standing in front of You
I'm trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
I'm standing in front of You
I'm standing in front of You
I'm trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
Verse 11
(Trying to be so cool, yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
Verse 12
[Ode To Sleep]
Verse 13
But I tell 'em
Why won't you let me go
Do I threaten all your plans?
I'm insignificant
Please tell 'em
You have no plans for me
I will set my soul on fire
What have I become?
I'll tell 'em
Verse 14
[Addict With a Pen]
Verse 15
Hello, we haven't talked in quite some time
I know I haven't been the best of sons
Hello, I've been traveling in the deserts of my mind
And I haven't found a drop
Verse 16
I tried desperately to run through the sand as I
Hold the water in the palm of my hand
Cause it's all that I have and it's all that I need and
The waves of the water mean nothing to me
But I tried my best and all that I can to
Hold tightly onto what's left in my hand
But no matter how, how tightly I will strain
The sand will slow me down and the water will drain
Verse 17
I'm just being dramatic
In fact
I'm only at it again
As an addict with a pen
Who's addicted to the wind
As it blows me back and forth
Mindless, spineless, and pretend
Of course I'll be here again
See you tomorrow
But it's the end of today
End of my ways
As a walking denial
My trial was filed
As a crazy suicidal head case
But you specialize in dying
You hear me screaming "Father"
And I'm lying here just crying
So wash me with your water
Verse 18
[Screen]
Verse 19
We're broken
We're broken
We're broken
We're broken people, oh
We're broken people, oh, yeah
We're broken
