It’s Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door 

“It’s kind of a fictitious story. And it’s kind of a morbid story. I was 20 years old when Spencer (Chamberlain) and I are writing that song. We had this idea about what happens when you love someone, really love them, truly love them. In the Bible it says that we’re to love our wives as Christ loved the church, which is an impossibility, because we don’t have the capacity to love like Christ does, and it’s impossible. So we had this morbid idea that there would be this guy, he would be driving a car. And if you read the lyrics, the verse involves a car accident. There’s this guy and he’s driving this car, and he’s so in love with this girl that he decides to kill them both. He’s so in love with her that he realizes it is impossible to love her the way he’s supposed to, so he decides to just drive off the road. That’s the narrative line of the story in the song. But it’s really about loving someone and knowing that you’ll never be able, in your capacity, to love them the proper way.”Aaron Gillespie (470)

Reinventing Your Exit

“That song is about when somebody puts you between a rock and a hard place. Like all your grace has run out, all your love for a person has run out, they’ve just stepped on you and stepped on you and stepped on you, and you’re really just stuck and you don’t really know what’s next. You’re like, well, here I am, I’m stuck up against the wall and there’s nothing I can do.”Aaron Gillespie (470)
