Well bring me something new that I haven't felt before
Like messages of love and directions to your door
But please talk slowly, I don't hear good anymore
And we all fall down
And we all fall down

Don't die on me lady, only good things can come
To those who practice reason and recognize good fun
Your absence is the bullet and the past is your gun
And we all fall down
And we all fall down

She still doesn't answer though she knows she's done wrong
We buried the memories along with the songs
When she wakes up, I hope that we are gone
And we all fall down
And we all fall down

There's a visitor in black at my neighbors house
My neighbor says tomorrow the visitor says now
When he comes here please tell him that I'm out
And we all fall down
And we all fall down

    Haha i don't think that is right^^
    The song is about death. The "visitor in black" is "the ol' grim reaper" as scott says in one of their live perfomances.
    The avett's are way to cool to have a song about drugs

    Party at his house, chick od's on some drugs and is not conscious, the cops come to the neighbors as the party got reported by other neighbors and they are asking where the party was and interviewing people about the house where the singer is now.
