The Way Some People Die by Yo La Tengo

It wasn't it more than a minute
That first one was the test
He was listening but I dont think he heard the rest
It was easy to fall, but not easy to take a stand
With the sound of her voice or the touch of her hand
Everyone's heard the reasons why
A kid would let the poison creep inside
He said he wasn't scared, but you know he lied
The way some people die
He doesn't think of tomorrow
And he seldom looks back
When he did he saw failure
And a future so black
So, he sees himself through sad eyes
That have never caught the look of love
He'll never see what he's giving up
Everyone's heard the reasons why
A kid would let the poison creep inside
He said he wasn't scared, but you know he lied
The way some people die
You might think he's a victim
He just thinks its a guess
Its not the question, its who you ask
And the boats fly on friday
And you're never gonna see him again
It wasn't love that did him in
Everyone's heard the reasons why
A kid would let the poison creep inside
He said he wasn't scared, but you know he lied
The way some people die

The first sentence of this song is grammatically incorrect. You can't say it wasn't it more. It is illogical. After that sentence I kept getting more confused. It's hard to say much about this song. I don't really understand any of it. The music is upbeat and fun. Reminds me of a band I used to like a long time ago. I have no idea what they are even called now but I used to own all their CDs back before they were stolen by the heroine girl.
