Clairvoyant
The Story So Far Lyrics


[Verse 1]
I think you'll notice
When things become different,
The good vibes in our lives
Won't feel so consistent.
And less becomes more,
'Cause the weight is too heavy.
I swim in the water
That's breaking your levee.

[Chorus]
The way that you left me
Is alright, it's alright.
If I argue the point,
Then we yell and we fight.
And I won't be home
For the rest of the night.
You might hate my words,
But you know that I'm right.
You know that I'm right.

[Verse 2]
This is your life,
There's no way
To run from it.
The doubt in your brain,
Or the pain in your stomach.
I only have but one
Complaint at the moment:
Don't paint me black
When I used to be golden.

[Chorus]
The way that you left me
Is alright, it's alright.
If I argue the point,
Then we yell and we fight.
And I won't be home
For the rest of the night.
You might hate my words,
But you know that I'm right.
You know that I'm right.

Don't paint me black
When I used to be golden.

I think you'll notice when things become different
The good vibes in our lives won't feel so consistent
And, less becomes more 'cause the weight is too heavy
I swim in the water that's breaking your levee

The way that you left me's all right, it's all right
If I argue the point then we yell and we fight
And I won't be home for the rest of the night
You might hate my words but you know that I'm right
You know that I'm right

This is your life, there's no way to run from it
The doubt in your brain, or the pain in your stomach
I only have the one complaint at the moment
Don't paint me black when I used to be golden

The way that you left me's all right, it's all right
If I argue the point than we yell and we fight
And I won't be home for the rest of the night
You might hate my words but you know that I'm right
You know that I'm right

Don't paint me black, when I used to be golden

The one thing that amazes me about music, is no matter how varied in genre or 'Story' of the song, people just connect. Language barriers cannot keep people from sharing the emotions or even the meaning of them, wish songs were the answer to humanity's problems rather than violence.


At the same time so many interpretations can be taken, because of our own unique view on the world. With this song, one moment i hear a lover lamenting that his relationship is falling apart. The next, i hear a heartfelt plea of a relationship that has ended but he feels that they had weaponized it against each other. This is what i call real music, something where you can take different stories and meanings from behind the same words.



That's my thoughts at least.



Anyway, personally i find life hard. It tires me out, i live a life of constant let downs and mental struggles. people don't give a crap about me, they only care out of pity. Attempted suicide so many times, never received help for it either. People's idea of help is Small 'Suggestions' of how to make it suck slightly less. I don't want it to suck 'Slightly less' I want it (the pain) to end. Sadly this world cares less about individuals, and more about money; people are out only for themselves.


The one thing that helps, music, it is my therapy. Doesn't work all the time, can't always rely on it. But it's made a bigger impact than 'CBT' or any form of medication has. If music could, i would happily use it to cure the world. So many people struggle with mental health issues, it hurts knowing no-one is looking out for them.


Hell, I'd give my life for them; Stranger or no. That's how much it hurts.


This song has come full circle for me, got me into punk music, and again has brought me back to emotions i lost a while ago.


Music is........ medicine.

I always get chills when Parker sings 'Don't paint me black when I used to be golden.' I think it means like "I know that things have changed and we aren't what we used to be, but don't make it seem like our memories together were a waste of time. They were golden." I don't know it's just kind of how I interpret it. I also think it's called 'Clairvoyant' because he can like see the future of their relationship and that it's coming to an end. This is a beautiful song and The Story So Far is amazing.
