"Out of Gas" as written by Isaac Brock, Eric Judy and Jeremiah Green....
Out of gas
Out of road
Out of car

I don't know how I'm going to go and
I had a drink the other day
Opinions were like kittens
I was giving them away and
I had a drink the other day
I had a lot to say

And I said
You will come down soon too
You will come down too soon

    General CommentI always interpretted this song as him saying he's stuck, and the parts where he talks about having a drink and saying "you will come down soon too" was him saying to people that may be looking down on him for being in a rut, or being a drunk, or whatever it may be, that they too will have their down fall, so they shouldn't judge. That's just my two cents.

    General CommentI always get the "You will come down too soon" part stuck in my head when I'm high, then later on I think about it again it's so fucking true.

    General CommentThe lyrics of this song may be some of the most creative in all of Brock's writings. The first three lines are the most creative way I could think of to say that he is literally stuck in life, and has no where to go from there. Being out of gas, out of car, means even if he does obtain one, he still doesn't have the other to go anywhere. And in the event he can get those aspects figured out, he doesn't even have road to move on, and so he is still completely and utterly stuck.

    So where all roads in life end, in intoxication. he drunkenly is telling everyone around him that no matter how good it is at that moment, they are gonna fall back into the same position he is. And he is telling everyone, like one gives away kittens....

    I dunno, that seems less insightful now that I've written it down.

    General CommentI hate when people think every song is about drugs.

    But anyway, I feel this is about some guy who has hit rock bottom and has nowhere else to go, and everyone else that looks down upon him he states that they will "come down soon too".

    General CommentI agree as well. This song does sound a lot like it's about him coming down from a drug and telling other people they will come down soon as well, as in sober up. He had a drink, had things to say, and started talking about coming down. The rest of the meaning I'm not too sure of, but I agree with a lot of the things others have said.
