Considering the lyrics were posted on his label's website several weeks back I think I'll take their word for it.

|I agree with waltza, but I supposed it could be dam or damned. Just think the way the rest of the song plays out, the context suggests it's about somebody being tied down to another person.. one of them not so lucky (aka damned).|

|Sorry for the delay, updated to reflect this. Nice job.|

Great call, it's definitely criminal now that I re-listen and keep in mind the context of the line.
Still not sure what he's reeling in though... and if it's getting him high or behind. Oh well, close enough. Great song either way.

Hey, thanks for the help.
I still think it might be anymore, but I do agree long day probably makes more sense so I'm going to change that one up.
I think it's All your life still also - listen to the repeating background voice for clarification. I'll have to check the lyrics booklet when the album comes out to know for sure.
Thanks for trying to help though - this is definitely a tough one in parts.

Not sure what this one is about exactly, but a great closer to a really good album.
Before reading your lyrics I thought he was saying "with Bartles and james, didn't need no first names", thinking he meant that people were drinking together but I actually think you're correct and it refers more to possibly the commercials which used to feature B&J products.
Although, I'm thinking he actually says "our own laws and favor" rather than in favor.. meaning, they could decide what's right and wrong based on their own opinions. Small detail, but certainly changes the line.
I guess knowing those parts makes it more clear, but i'm still torn between two ideas here:
1) it sounds like this is about reminiscing to older times when people didn't need the government to tell them how to live, to make laws up about every little thing. You just took care of yourself and your neighbors and they did the same, and that was a much simpler way to live. The B&J idea then refers to the two old men sitting on the porch just being neighborly.
2) There's also some bigger references here I think about how he may be searching for a soul-mate type person? The light on the porch for someone and line about every house not a home and dare does he roam makes me think he's continuing to look for the perfect person to complete himself.
Interesting song. Maybe it all means nothing though and it just rhymed nicely. :)

|Thanks, I corrected both those. Any idea about the second line where I have a question mark? Is he really saying chance?|
|Band of Horses – Blue Beard Lyrics||3 years ago|
Yeah, I thought allusion at first also but like you said it seems more likely he means illusion given the context of it.
Any idea about the very last line? All i can make out is banana peels but that literally makes no sense to me.
|Rocky Votolato – Lucky Clover Coin Lyrics||3 years ago|
Good call, a few of these lines I struggled with hearing correctly.
Any idea on the line "Til the sunrise shall spring roses in water." ??? That line doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but that's the only thing I can make out right now.
