"An Experiment" as written by Kori Gardner Hammel and Jason Edward Hammel....
Do you want to go dry now
So that I can say we're holding on tomorrow?
Unforgivable faults, nonsense

Do you want to go dry now
So that I can say we're holding out today?
Unforgettable starts, ahhh

I wonder if I could tie the ocean to you knees

Do you want to go dry now
So that I can say we're holding on tomorrow?
Unforgivable faults, nonsense

Do you want to get down now
So that I can say we're holding out today?
Unforgettable starts, ahhh

I wonder if I could tie the ocean to you knees
To your knees, if you please, to the bath at your feet
'Cause it's an experiment, experiment with me
To your knees, if you please, to the bath at your feet

I said, "Don't put up a fight 'cause I know we all get older."
Say, "Don't point out the faults 'cause you know I'm always older."
Said, "Just put out the fight 'cause by now we've gotten older."

To your knees, if you please, to the bath at your feet
I wonder if I could tie the ocean to you knees
'Cause it's an experiment, experiment with me

    General CommentI love this song.... ahhh, so much. Most of Team Boo is suitably incredible, really. They make me happy. I have a hard time getting a definitive sense of the meaning of their songs, but somehow you just know that probably in some sense it's about some aspect of being in love. Since they so obviously are. If you get the chance to see them live, you should.

    General CommentI think this song has some sexual undertones. But undoubtedly an excellent song.

    General CommentI very much agree with shazzer.

    I would also like to note that Kori is older than Jason. And I believe she sings the line "i'm always older".

    General CommentI actually got a chance to talk Kori and Jason one-on-one after one of their shows back in '06, and I asked them specifically about this song, and it's meaning. Kori replied, "Well, actually, it's just a fun song for us and the lyrics rhymed and sounded pretty cool!" hahaha.
