"Jesus Says" as written by Mark Alexander Hamilton and Tim Wheeler....
One million light years from home
Throwing up and feeling small
Where have I gone and landed tonight
I've been shot right to the core
Of NYC and hostility yeah
But you gotta laugh
'Cause there's something that I cannot do without
And it's in your hand

Where have I gone and landed tonight
A million light years from home
Throwing up and feeling small
And now I know that my mind is blown
'Cause there's something that I cannot do without
Something that I understand
Yeah there's something that I cannot do without
And it's in your hand

Cut down shot down
Any way you please
Don't get nothing for free
Big time small time
Any way you choose yeah
Don't mean nothing to me

Where have I gone and landed tonight
God give me strength
In a land of fakes and small time petty thieves
Must be the wrong place
'Cause all my honesty is true yeah
But it's gone to waste
On a soulless superficial void
Called the human race

Cut down shot down
Any way you please
Don't get nothing for free
Big time small time
Any way you choose yeah
Yeah but you gotta compete

Where have I gone and landed tonight
Throwing up and feeling small
One million light years from home
I've been shot right to the core
Of NYC and hostility yeah
But you gotta laugh
'Cause there's something that I cannot do without
And it's in your hand

Cut down shot down
Any way you please
Don't get nothing for free
Big time small time
Any way you choose yeah
Don't mean fuck all to me
Yeah I've been cut down shot down
Any way you please yeah
Sisters and brothers please yeah
Big time small time
Any way you please yeah
Don't mean nothing to me

    General Commenti pretty suprised noone has written anything about this song before me coz it really is quite meaningful! Took me a while to work out what i think it means but now it makes sense. i think it's mena be jesus coming down from his place in the sky or wherever to visit us on earth and see how we are getting along. He then start thinking he's in the wrong place coz it's completely different from how he left it and doesnt understand whas going on. In the end he realises it is earth and ends up quite shocked and angry at what's going on in the world now ( i think the verse that starts where have i gone and landed tonight, god give me strength.... shows this quite powerfully) i like this as it really makes you think just what has happened to the world and the human race. Seems a bit deep for ash....

    p.s. does anyone know what the something is that he cant do without?

    General CommentI read an interview with Tim regarding this song, he said it's about going out and getting really off your head, then waking up the next day and just feeling so fucked and thinking "what have I done now" kind of like the morning after the night before. I love the interpretation about Jesus and everything Pablore but unfortunately I think that would be too deep for them, and I don't think you're rite!! I don't really know why it is called Jesus says though. E-mail me if you want to chat about Ash & Kickass music.

    General CommentAs a FAN of Ash ,one of their major influences is The Velvet Underground.There are 2 VU songs--"Candy Says" and "Jesus"---I think thats where Tim got "Jesus Says",especially as the song is about New York,The Velvets playground!

    General Commentya wanna know what i think?.....ill tell you anyway

    i think the interpretation of jesus was a very clever and well thought out interpretation - just not right sadly - it is about getting so off your face and waking up and thinking 'where have i gone and landed tonight?' 'what have i done?' 'who have i fucked?' etc etc etc - a class riff too
