You're no one
You're going nowhere
You got a fast car
A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y
A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y
A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y
A, E, I, O, U, and swy, no Y

    General Commenti read it said Dan, that ones gunna suck. You know dan...
    you're no one
    you goin no where
    in a fast car
    a e i o u and sometimes y x3
    a e i o u and swy no y
    "damn that ones gunna suck..."

    I think thats what he's saying.And "SWY" because combinding sometimes y...and y has a w sound kinda and... yea i think you get it.

    to me it means just like you're doing nothing and thinking about simple things.i dunno,thats what i always think about. Im not sure why Isaac wrote this but hey, i like it!

    General Commentdon't overanalyze it. he obviously just messed up, like we do, combining sounds or missplacing words.
    It happens to me all the time.
    This one's just funny because he said it's gonna suck

    General Commenti thought when he said swy he was saying slide- you know? because dan was using the slide guitar. doesnt really sound like it anymore, though. it just sounds like swy.
