"Another White Dash" as written by and Andrew Joshua Thomson Butterfly Giselle Boucher....
There is something exciting about leaving everything behind
There is something deep and pulling leaving everything behind
Something about having everything you think you'll ever need sitting in the seat next to you

and I watch
Another white dash, another white dash, another white dash fly beside us
and I watch
Another white dash, another white dash, another white dash fly beneath us

Away away..

There is yelling of an engine, a constant rattling door
There is serious, deep and mumbled a conversation I'm not it
Flickering lights, shadows of trees makes me blink my eyes
makes the land appear like a really old movie

and I watch
Another white dash, another white dash, another white dash fly beside us
and I watch
Another white dash, another white dash, another white dash fly beneath us

Away away..

I've got a heart full of rubber bands that keep getting caught on things

and I count
Another white dash, another white dash, another white dash, I drift off at eighty.. something!
and I count
Another white dash, another white dash, another white dash out of time with the music

Another white dash, another white dash, another white dash, fly beside us
and I count
Another white dash, another white dash, another white dash fly beneath us

There is something exciting about leaving everything behind
There is something deep and pulling leaving everything behind
Something about having everything you think you'll ever need sitting in the seat next to you

    General CommentBasically this is what i got out of this song, it is about leaving someplace that means a lot to you. Riding on a bus i believe. Everything you need sitting in the seat next to you- your luggage. Another white dash- road marks watching, she counts to 80 but loses count. conversations on the bus that she is not in, tree shadows make it look like an old movie, heart full of rubber bands- are caught on everything she is leaving making it hard to leave. Exciting to leave everything that means a lot to you, but in the same respect hard because it means so much. the rubber band comment ex.

    General CommentThis song is so good. They play it on the college radio station here sometimes. It's so refreshing to listen to it while driving amidst the morons on I-95

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it's an arm full of rubber bands.. so it's literally that she's wearing them like bracelets and they get caught on stuff.

    it should also be mentioned that her father was a touring musician, so she spent a large part of her childhood on the road.

    General CommentI agree with messahunt, except I took the "something about having everything you think you'll ever need" as a lover, or a friend, who went along with her.

    General Commentthe relief of getting away and only taking the person that really means something to you... but always having those memories that hold you back..
    "I got a heart full of rubber bands that keep getting caught on things" genius lyrics.

    General CommentThis song really annoys me, because no matter how many times I look up to see it's "another white dash", all I can hear is "little white gash", and that sounds disgusting.
