"floater" as written by and Buckley Williams....
To my mistress the bridge, I don't feel well.
I'll be leaving and you can't stop me.
We've been carrying on too long,
I'm sorry, but I'm gone.

I've got a bad reputation to think about.
I've been dirty, I've been wrong.
Maybe someday they'll find that I've washed up.
I'm stepping out to clear my head.

I'm breathing in to fill my lungs.
We're all dead.
Farewell scenic highway overpass.
It's better this way anyways.

My lover the river makes a better soldier than a bride.
But I left my suit at the side of her bed
And she's got the warmest body that I've never had.
Drag the lake, you'll find that it's full of love.

Bring the children to the water
And let them see what heartache did.
This matrimony needs a witness,
And you can teach them to swim.

Don't let your dreamers grow up to be dead men.
Drown us at birth, save her some time.
Drifting on romantic holiday,
Breathless as her cold arms cover me.

Drag the lake.
You will find it is full of love.

    General CommentThis song is first of all BADFUCKINGASS, vocals and riffs fucking kill it. I think it's about suicide from a person who is done with love because the world has turned on him, "let them see what heartache did", basically the world is full of shit and the love he finds in his death by jumping off the bridge into the lake is the love he now chooses to hold, because he's "leaving his heart at the side of her bed"
