This song is about talking to Meredith Godreau in a dream.


Oh, Meredith
she was here again last night
in my bed and in the back of my mind
and she held my hands
across the table but nothing felt right

So, Meridith
what do you recommend? for this pulsating indifference
go to the city, surround yourself in people and be alone for an instant

Maybe, i'll be the boy of some young ladies dreams
just haven't met her yet, just haven't met her yet
and that night, i was drunk and i kissed you while the others slept
its not alright no its not alright

oh, me and her
we'd meander , down the river before it swallowed us whole
and we'd slip to the bottom. no time for one last glance
i'll never know you again i've lost my chance

little slave tell me, do you find comfort in living? it doesn't look like it
doesn't look like it
So, Sarah, did you find pleasure in leaving? sure looks like it, sure looks like it
