"I'm Totally Not Down with Rob's Alien" as written by and Murchy Bayles....
At noon the wind comes through
Across the bay on a clear day
And I can watch the boats come in and set their anchors
And my folks are away at the store
So I don't have to listen to anyone say anything

And I'll swim out as far as I can
And float on my back
Just waiting for nothing

I hope they never come back to this house
It's a lot more fun alone
I can do anything I want
So I'm swimming
More like floating
And I'll just stay out here until the night comes crashing down

And I'll swim out as far as I can
And float on my back
Just waiting for nothing
They always come home at the wrong time
Like when I'm alright and don't need no one at all

    General CommentI personally love this song, I can relate to it really well and it does a fantastic job of explaining the feeling. At least one of my parents is home 98% of the time, that 2% where they aren't.... they're at the store. But those few hours they're away each week are great, I don't have to worry about them bugging me at all about anything, I can just sit there and blast my music and do whatever else I want. Then, I see them getting home in the driveway and have to turn my music down and get back to not being free. It's not that I do much different stuff at all, it's just the freedom of not having my parents around for a few hours, for the sake of having that freedom.

    General Commentto me this song is about the feeling you get when you get your alone time and want it to last for a while, but someone or something fucks it up.

    Just being alone doing your own thing, but then again nothing lasts forever.

    General CommentDefinately one of my favourite MTB songs.
    Can relate to the lyrics alot.
    When you just want to be alone and do whatever you want, but then your parents just fuck it up.
    Oh well, as you guys said, nothing lasts forever.
