Certain nation bows to the young
Nothing is wicked, everything's fun
You got some money do you right
We are jacking the ball
One tear amazingly
One tear amazingly
We are jacking the ball

Winter is over, what should we do?
Hazing loveless fall into
Tiny breaks for every day
We are jacking the ball
One tear amazingly
One tear amazingly
We are jacking the ball

Fell unto the memory
Just don't stay too long
The last word was meant to be
We are jacking the ball
One tear amazingly
One tear amazingly
We are jacking the ball

    General CommentIn the book "On the Road," Jack Kerouac uses the expression "balling the jack" as a reference to pushing a car's gas pedal all the way down.

    General Commentit sounds a bit like remembering his youth. Time passing with the specialness of not having any realy worries.

    Also a bit like people forget the mind set of being young- it's not some amazingly blissfull time, probably only when someone looks back to it they feel that way.

    Sometimes I really do wonder if these indie bands listen to African music, soucous e.tc. Cause alot of the melodies and methods are /so/ african..

    General Comment"Jacking the Ball" is an expression used when you play the game Jacks.

    I think this song is definitely about remembering youth. The instrumentals are fun and remind me of a summer day spent playing outside during the summer.

    General CommentI always thought "jacking the ball" is slang for stealing in basketball. So, in terms of this song, it's a metaphor for taking back possession of...what? I'm not sure.

    General CommentGorgeous instrumental...I think it's partly, in the first verses, describing what tigersroamfree said, remembering (and evoking) youth, soaking in that time (that maybe was more blissful in memory) but also sort of accepting that it passes" "fell into a memory, just don't stay too long, the last word was meant to be..." etc...?

    General CommentI think this song is talking about the feeling of freedom, either u r a teenager or a grown up, who is breaking away from regular shit.
    I also think it can be related with escaping as fast as you can. One time i was with this guy Nicholas, who eas breaking away from his house and taking his spirit to live in the wild side, and he told me that the soundtrack in his head while he was escaping was this song.
    I told him "Hell yeah Nicholas, u go for it! Jack all the balls!"
    What a cool guy....
    Anyways, very cool song. Specially to drive away.
