"Hey! Is That a Ninja Up There?" as written by and Murchy Snider....
We're racing through the dark
On a road along the shore
And the law says we should stop
So we break a couple more
With the windows all down
We just throw the cans out
And now you're laughin' through the wind
Swearin' we won't do it again

We're off too much now
Pay off sells itself
We cough too much now
(But we're) too young for ourselves

We're racing through the dark
Down the beach by the pier
And you ran into the sea
Like a cop without fear
"You're gonna ruin your shoes!"
"You're gonna ruin your shoes!"
And you're wading through the bay
Like you do it everyday

We're off too much now
Pay off sells itself
We cough too much now
(But we're) too young for ourselves

The bay's so uncertain
It's too cold, but we swim
The rain could come at any moment
The gray sky's closing in

Girl, just kiss me

I couldnt' sleep for days
And I couldn't move
You couldn't come too soon
To break me from that room
And now I'll sleep for days
But in a different place

We're off too much now
Pay off sells itself
We cough too much now
(But we're) too young for ourselves

    General CommentHonestly. I think he is telling it how it is.
    And they don't necessarily have to be drinking.
    The whole part about breaking the law is when they throw their cans out, as in littering.

    I personally think it's about doing what you feel inclined to do at this exact moment.
    And thoughts cross your mind of acting immature, but it doesnt matter.

    "I couldnt' sleep for days
    And I couldn't move
    You couldn't come too soon
    To break me from that room
    And now I'll sleep for days
    But in a different place"
    And I feel as if it's just talking about how you need to get out of your mold. Doing something day after day, isn't healthy, and she took him away.


    This whole song, it creates a pictureesque scene.

    General Commenteverytime i hear it, i always assume that he's talkin about a booze cruise. just drivin around randomly and drinking. sounds terrible, maybe stupid, but we do it a lot at my high school cause there aint shit to do. its just matches perfectly, windows down, throwin the cans out, breaking at a stop sign, racing down a road. it came on one time during a boooze cruise and i just kinda stopped and thought...wow. the first verse at least, maybe second verse about stopping by the beach and wading. maybe smoking some reefer and tryin to be quiet but they're coughing too much and they act older than they are. then just lookin out on the water and thinking. when theyre talking in the beach he finally kisses this girl and he can't stop thinking about her for days, then she comes and he moves in with her?

    just my take on it

    General Commentgreat song

    But doesnt it say

    And you ran into the sea, like a cat without fear?

    i mean cats "hate water" and it would make more sense cause i doubt a cop would be scared of the sea

    General CommentAlso breaking the law by not stopping.
    I thought it ment 'brake' a couple more, as in slow down.
    But it says 'break' as in break a couple more laws, so maybe they are drinking aswell?

    And the best bit is defnately "Girl just kiss me"
    Love saying that to my girlfriend when we're alone.

    General Commenti can't believe there are not more posts about this song. it is absolutely fabulous.

    i think that he's just writing about being young, and in love and living in the moment. "we cough too much now, but we're too young for ourselves." in that moment, the consequences of their actions didn't even matter. for once they could just do what they wanted to do without worrying about the future.

    perfect.

    General Commenti tought when he said breaking the law is that they are speeding, and going in and out of cars then they throw the cans out because they were drinking and how drunk driving is breaking the law
