I think this song is pretty self explanitory. Stephans trying to illustrate a failed relationship, probably quite awhile ago. Maybe theres no hope for the two people.

"Farther from you everyday"

He's probably not talking about distance in miles. He's talking about distance of the heart, of the mind and soul.

"What do you do to me to make me treat you so bad? I keep hoping that you値l speak to me"

Stephan mis-treated the person and now he regrets it. He wants to make amends with her; she will have nothing of it. She's moved on and left him behind. She's farther from him everyday.

This song is a lot like a relationship that I just blew. You get so close to a friend, and you begin to get attracted to them, but if they don't feel the same way, you just get stuck with bitterness and you grow apart from them. You try to hide the bitterness, but they finally find it (I miss you but know the face you make like when you found me out for the fake I am)then everything just turns to shit. And you can't make it better, you can't make it like it used to be.(I keep hoping that you'll speak to me but I'm farther from you everyday) It's just so over but you can't admit that to yourself.

What are you guys, blind? You ever want something so bad in life and it ain't coming? "Chances don't hold well tomorrow when talking to myself pass by, /I miss you, but not the face you make/ like when you found me out for the fake I am /so easily you see throgh me /what do you do to me to make me treat you so bad? / I just keep hoping you'll still speak to me/ but I"m farther from you everyday". You're being something you're not, and hurting the ones you really care about in the process. Oh, and covering up by using sex- "Thinkin' how you'd open up your legs /but I'm farther from you everday"

Farther I think is a song about taking people for granted, in both the relashionship sense and sexually. It seems like He doesnt think he cares about this person " Ntohing much matters to me So i dont see why I should hold so tightly to a memory that i cant speak of." I think that is about him not being serious, having to hold in the past, of what happend with this girl. then in the lyrics "I think about it nightly how you opened up your life for me, why are you still lonely? though im not the type who begs, im thinking how you'd open up your legs". To me, the girl must have let him in, and cared about him, and all he was there for was the sex. he didnt care about her, and he is starting to realize that emotionally, he is " farther from you everyday". " I miss you, but know the face you make,like when you found me out, for the fake, I am, so easily you see through me."/ He feels bad because she figured out he was using her, and he cant make up for what he did. Then in the next part " what do u do to me to make me treat you so bad?"- he is feeling guilty so he tries to blame it on her cuz he knows he messed up and doesnt want to face it. SHe wont speak to him, he is alone now and realizes that he made a big mistake " this could be my big mistake" . My favorite parts of the song," all i think about is waiting and all the people we are fading into, farther from u everyday,.... and i think aobut you dying years from now never having known who u are...". In general i think the song is about regret, and not letting time pass you by, and relizing the people in your life and what they mean to you. Dont grow old and let time pass you by before you lose track of the people you love. I also think that in this song stephan has an ongoing conflict trying to admit to himslef he was wrong and the girl was better than him.

Farther

Nothing much matters much to me
So I don't see why I should hold so tightly
To a memory I can't speak of
I think about it nightly
How you opened up your life for me
Why are you still lonely?
Though I知 not the type who begs
I知 thinking how you壇 open up your legs
But I知 farther from you every day
I'm farther from you every day
And a woman talking to herself gathers up the shit she couldn't sell
Chances don稚 bode well tomorrow and
Talking to myself pass by,
I miss you but know the face you make
Like when you found me out for the fake I am
So easily you see through me
What do you do to me to make me treat you so bad?
I keep hoping that you値l speak to me
But I知 farther from you every day
All I think about is waiting and the people we are changing into
Farther from you every day
Farther from you every day
There was a sound but I don't know how it goes
I remember all that we went through, blew in from the coast
You said, you are of the earth,
I am of the sky
I don't even know what the hell that means
Farther from you every day
All I think about is waiting and the people we are fading into
Farther from you every day
And I think about you dying years from now never having known
Who you are (this could be my big mistake)
Farther from you every day
All I think about is waiting and the people we are fading into
Farther from you every day
And I think about you dying years from now never having known
Who you are
Farther from you every day
