I'm Flying

On and on my body burned
my sheets all wet and cold
the lights were on, my eyes were gone
and any second lose control
a pounding on my window
just a pounding in my head
i wonder who was in my room last night
who the hell was in my bed?

there must have been a body there
i swear i felt some flesh
it took a little time
but i figured they were mine
there were fingers going down my chest
my mouth went through the ceiling
and my body fell to the floor
i couldn't find a key
'cause there was nothing i could see
then someone ran through the door

the cops, the preist, the crisis line
and no one really had a clue
no one to tell us who was touching me
or exactly what i should do
my throat was dry
my hopes were high
but nothing really ever got said
who was in my room last night?
who the hell was in my bed?

    General Commentthis band is not nearly popular enough. this song rocks out uncontrolably. no wonder it made guitar hero 2.

    its about being whacked out of your brain and thinking theres someone lying next to you. it seems so real and undeniable to you, but no one believes you, which just makes it worse.

    General CommentI always heard that line as "and someone had moved the door".

    General CommentTo me, it sounds like a bad trip on LSD. "I'm flying" could be the initial feeling of the trip, then he experiences what he thinks is someone in his bed with him.

    "there must have been a body there
    i swear i felt some flesh
    it took a little time
    but i figured they were mine"

    He could be touching his own body, and not realise that it's himself. As LSD can make you unaware of yourself.

    Well, that's what I think anyay. I'm probably wrong =]

    General CommentKerrigan, you're actually probly right. the Surfers did take alot of LSD so that could explain the song. acid can make you think about crazy shit like that. anyway the song kicks ass. it sounds even better when you listen to while your trippin.

    My InterpretationI always assumed this song was about a person getting date raped or something. The "im flying" part is where the narrator gets drugged and the "fingers running down my chest" implies that some kind of sexual activity is going

    General CommentAlso notice how he says "i FIGURED (the fingers) were mine" meaning hes simply trying to figure out what was happening but hes not sure

    General CommentI guess I've always sort of taken the song on the surface level because I always kinda assumed it was about someone who got seriously fucked (on alcohol, weed, LSD, doesn't really matter) only to wake up next morning and have vague memories of something sexual happening but A) not sure who it was with and B) not entirely sure it was consensual. Basically, an ode to all those mornings of waking up and thinking "What the FUCK did I do last night?"
