The simple, yet evocative verse of "Between Bullets" cries out - "Spinning mind at sea rise and fall / fall rising / forgetting to remember...". For me, it brings to mind the inability of the brain to remember pain. And then in the chorus with "Between bullets and targets / salt on wounds heal regrets" reinforces the verse as though the singer is lost on the wrong side of a losing war.
And then there's the inevitable breakup song in "Decide", where the woman has had it... "You know we really could've had it all / all my strength you know it really couldn't keep us strong / cuz done with your games and baby I'm done with the riddles..." In the chorus, the sentiment is sealed and she's sure she's done. "You wanted to break the ties / shut up and decide / I won't keep wasting my time..."
