I'm runnin' water through,
I'm runnin' water through my mind

I'm runnin' water through,
I'm runnin' water through my mind

Nothing but shops
and roads to go to roads in America
All's best forgot, and it's easy
when you try and remember everything you've come across

Can't turn nothin' off
for the fear that you'll be alone with your own thoughts

I'm runnin' water through,
I'm runnin' water through my mind

I'm runnin' water through,
I'm runnin' water through my mind

Nothing but shops
and roads to go to roads in America
All's best forgot,
and it's easy
when you try and remember everything that you've come across

Can't turn nothing off
for the fear that you'll be alone with your own thoughts

It was grey and there was no sunset
She said she liked it when you spoke in Spanish,
it reminds her of sex

It was grey and it felt flat
She said it leaves me feelin' flat
I said, "Why don't you speak in Spanish?
Why the fuck don't you speak in Spanish, then?"

    General Commentyeah this is a great song, i think its just about pleading ignorance to what is around you, or since the lyrics are by isaac brock it could be about anything

    General Commenti think that it's about washing your mind clean of all the bad and awful feeling that you were feeling. then you realize that- now you just feel empty. and thats not good either.
    at the very end i think he's trying to help someone else with the same feeling of emptiness. it seems so easy. "why don't you just speak in spanish?"

    My Interpretation"I'm runnin' water through my mind"
    -He wants to cleanse his mind of all the bullshit around him

    "Nothing but shops
    and roads to go to roads in America
    All's best forgot, and it's easy
    when you try and remember everything you've come across"
    -Driving through America, he looks around and sees a lot of meaningless things, nothing worth remembering

    "Can't turn nothin' off
    for the fear that you'll be alone with your own thoughts"
    -This is referring to technology, how we've always got to have the TV on or something going on, because we don't want to be left to think about things.

    "It was grey and there was no sunset
    She said she liked it when you spoke in Spanish,
    it reminds her of sex
    It was grey and it felt flat
    She said it leaves me feelin' flat
    I said, 'Why don't you speak in Spanish?
    Why the fuck don't you speak in Spanish, then?' "
    -He's feeling irritable and bitter towards this girl, probably because he's trying to reflect and clear out his mind.
