you can live alone with me
in a house, like a motionpicture scene
motor oil stains gathered in the driveway
bits and pieces of our cars littering the yard
and a cat in the neighbor's trash

i'm selling back my black market dictionary
full of pictures and symbols
there were no words

i'm selling back my black market dictionary
full of pictures and symbols
there were no words

when I drive up you'll be in your swing
we'll laugh about things
we'll never let it bother us (my guess anyway)
and you'll stay just the way that you are
and you'll stay just the way that you are

when i drive up you'll be in your swing

when I drive up you'll be in your swing

i'm selling back my black market dictionary
full of pictures and symbols
there were no words

i'm selling back my black market dictionary
full of pictures and symbols
there were no words

Na na na na na na naaaa

    General Comment"When I drive up - you'll be in your swing - we'll laugh about things - that we know nothing about - but we laugh anyway - and you'll stay - just the way that you are - When I drive up you'll be in our swing"

    From Jeff Jenkins (the lead singer) himself.

    Great, great song.

    According to Jeff, it's about seeing a nephew or cousin or some kid he knows that's always in his swing when he drives up and the kid has so much potential to be something, but he just sits in his swing. Or something. I might've fucked that up a little bit.

    He says the chorus is about getting rid of all connections to the material/pop culture world. Empty images with no real substance.
