Out of breath and out of cash, find yourself watching M.A.S.H., every night
On the couch. Woman says let's take a drive down south, roll down the
Windows and open our mouths taste where we are and play the music loud. Stop
The car, lay on the grass, the planets spin and we watch space pass.Walk a

Direction, see where we get. I never knew nothin' so there's nothin' to
Forget. Get real drunk and ride our bikes. There's so much beauty it could
Make you cry. The rich get money but never what they want. Find ourselves a
New place to haunt. Climb up the fire escape do it 'til the ground looks far

Away. Go night swimming, leave our clothes on the ground, when we get busted
We just stand there proud. It's the truth we all been wrong make it up and
Let's move on. Playing cards we all get to act sly there's so much beauty it
Could make you cry.

    General Comment:i kind of feel like there is a reference to the movie American Beauty.
    "Find yourself watching M.A.S.H.
    Every night on the couch" - in the movie the dad and mom don't relate anymore so they just watch mash every night.

    and
    "so much beauty it could make you cry"- the main character films random things in the world that no one would take a second glance at but are so beautiful. while explaining his favorite thing he's ever filmed (a plastic bag in the wind), he says there is just so much beauty in the world that sometimes he feels like he could just burst. and then he cries.

    i'm sure that this song isn't just about the movie. it's about opening our eyes to see all the beauty in the world so we can enjoy life more.

    General Comment:I l-o-v-e this song. I just wish it was longer. Just random ass pieces of life that are so beautiful and lovely when you think about it. yea i agree that he's saying that people need to chill out and enjoy life, also that people need to start living their lives, no sitting on the couch every night watching MASH

    General Comment:Ever since I first heard this song I've found it easier to enjoy everything. Everyone bitches about how there's nothing to do or their town sucks and is so boring... Its about appreciating everything and enjoying life and making the best of what you've got instead of wanting more.

    General Comment:Screwing god?? What the hell...

    I think it's just about enjoying yourself and having a good time...even though your life may not be perfect, you're not rich, but if you can find beauty and fun in the small things then you're better off.
