"One Last Run" as written by and Chad/peake Kroeger....
Crafty friends where'd they all go
Try and find but no one ever knows
You fall down makes you want to stay
Who the hell would want to anyway
Well I'm leaving

And I want it all
Forgot it all
Better find this all
And I found out where it's all at

Better now than I'm before
Tried it once now I want it more
Memories of cut in half
Tell the truth then I want you to laugh
We're not laughing

And I want it all
Forgot it all
Better find this all
And I found out where it's all at

Knew it all
What's it like
Sell it all
What's your price

Steal a car we're all headed south
You know the score so just shut your mouth
One more run then I want out
Not like them I'd rather go without
Without needing

And I want it all
Forgot it all
Better find this all
And I found out where it's all at

Well I knew it all
Better than before
Better find this all
And I found out where it's all at

    General CommentThis song, reminds me of GREAT SEX...not the words, but the rhythym of it. It goes faster, then slower, and the energy builds up at the end...then BOOM, it's all over! I LOVE this song! If you haven't heard it, go out and BUY the CD, and tell me that I'm wrong!

    General Commentthis song is about a person who thinks he has good friends in a good place but then he realizes that he was wrong and they weren't the friends he pictured them to be. they pushed him to do things he didn't want to do. TOO BAD FOR HIM!

    General CommentSounds to me like the song is about someone who's always looking for bigger and better things ("and i want it all/thought i got it all/then i finally saw/and found out where it's all at"). The verses reinforce this.
    Also the line "memories cut in half" makes me think that he's only choosing to remember the memories which remind him of how crappy his life was before his current situation.
    For example - he lives a certain way, then he finds out that it's not cool/the way he wants to live etc. anymore, so he quickly lives life this new way, and brands his past life situation/s as shit.

    General Commentfrom Playboy interview with Chad:

    PLAYBOY: Let's go back to the mushrooms. What else did you sell?
    CHAD KROEGER: I sold a little weed here, some mushrooms there. I had to subsidize the income somehow. I knew a lot of people who had weed, and a lot of people working on the oil rigs needed weed. I could get it. That seemed like a no-brainer.

    PLAYBOY: So is the song "One Last Run" from The State autobiographical?
    CHAD KROEGER: Absolutely it's autobiographical. I can't believe some of the shit I'm telling you. So this one time, I buy a case of beer and borrow this girl's truck, and she and I drive 45 minutes to the nearest city. I buy some weed, and we're driving back. We've got beer bottles all over the floorboards, and we're laughing, with the tunes cranked. Next thing I know, we're heading into a ditch. I see this metal pole coming at us, and I steer just to the left of it. Beer bottles are flying all around. I bring us back onto the road and bring the truck to a stop. Grass from the side of the road is collected a foot high around the entire truck, so the truck looks as if it's wearing a hula skirt. We get all the grass pulled off, and who pulls up? A cop. I've got an ounce of weed down the front of my pants. As he rolls down the window, I say, "We're just waiting for two friends. They had to stop for gas." He rolls up his window and drives away. That was "One Last Run.
