This is almost a Great song. Just a little too slow. It is about a guy dating a girl and he is trying to hack into her email to see if she has been cheating on him. But he just knows facts about her not the real person. He cracks the code "Barcelona". Where presumably she met "Anthony" I love how the drum beat is like a heart beat as he is a little scared while trying to hack the email account.I also like how in the last minute he hoes from denial, anger (once he cracks the code), bargaining, depression and finally acceptance with that great last line "one day i wont even remember your face"

My theory is that this is from the point of view of someone who was in a mangled broken relationship, one where he suspected the woman of cheating but before any closure could be reached she died and now he's trying to access the computer based off of all the little facts he knew about her missing the point that he didn't really know anything about her, just little bits of meaningless trivia, nothing really important

@stepheneamonn Couldnt agree more! There are alot of clever "musical alludes" to the telling of the story, which for me elevates this song to "Genius" Level!

I don't know much about music production but someone needs a medal for this one. The failed passwords, the "ding" on the correct attempt, the crashing sound when he finds out the truth, the lower notes in the last chorus...genius.

@PandaYogisha I think it's pretty obvious this is about a guy trying to figure out his girlfriends email password so he can she what she's up to since he thinks she's cheating.

@Crommunist - fuller000 got it exactly right. I should have read down the page.

@PandaYogisha - nope. Guy trying to hack his girlfriend's e-mail. Trying out all the trivia he knows about her as possible passwords (hence the title, and spelling all of the words out). Finally the pword "Anthony" (the new guy) works, and he finds out she's been lying to him. The stalker thing kind of works too but the "distraction and boredom" suggests they have an actual relationship that's going down the t00bs.

@likewhateverdude4 I don't think they even get close to Elton John/Bernie Taupin, but I still think this record is a giant step forward compared to Ben's recent solo work.
