LET ME
TELL YOU
ONE
FUCKIN
THING
IF I HAD BEEN IN THAT ROOM
WHEN TAYLOR STARTED PLAYING SAD BEAUTIFUL TRAGIC
I WOULD’VE BARRELLED OUT OF MY SECTION
DOWN ONTO THE FLOOR
THROUGH THE CROWD
PAST SECURITY
CLIMBED UP ONTO THE B STAGE
PUT MY HANDS IN THE AIR
AND STARTED TO KING KONG SCREAM

Sad Beautiful Tragic" is really close to my heart. I remember it was after a show and I was on the bus thinking about this relationship that ended months and months before. The feeling wasn’t sadness and anger or those things anymore. It was wistful loss. And so I just got my guitar and I hit on the fact that I was thinking in terms of rhyming; I rhymed magic with tragic, changed a few things and ended it with what a sad beautiful tragic love affair. I wanted to tell the story in terms of a cloudy recollection of what went wrong. It’s kind of the murky gray, looking back on something you can’t change or get back.
