"Countdown" as written by and Nicholas Joseph Zinner Karen Lee Orzolek....
Trailer red like the sea
Well, I'm a sun of a crowded bed
Will find your love's going to pout for me
Your love that breathes breeze
Going to paste up high in his
Going to drive, going to drive, going to pout for me
Your love that breeds breeze
Your love that's catching the breeze

Sun of a crowded bed
Sun of a crowded night
Will find your love's going to pout for me
Your love's going to pout for me
Well, countdown (Repeat)
Yeah

Do do dada da de da da

Waiting for a chance to pass
Some hoes say, some say now go
Working for a chance for speak
A love that breeds breeze
Hard time getting past black
Going to drop, going to drop, going to pop for me
Your love that breathes breeze
Your love that's catching the breeze

Sun of a crowded bed
Sun of a crowded night
Will find your love's going to pop for me
Your love's going to pop for me
Countdown

    General CommentMan. This is one of my favorite songs from Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

    General CommentTo me this song sounds like a sexual story where the "male" charactor is losing his/its virginity to the other/karen
    "your loves gonna pop for me"

    the fact that its "countdown" seems to add to this meaning

    plus it kinna has a slow "sexual" beat to it

    General Commentthis song is definately about sex, and i definately think it has to do with a boy losing his virginity... "i'm the son of a crowded bed" (im pretty sure its "son" not "sun"), and "your loves gonna pop for me"..yeah peace out virginity haha. the songs just really sexual and i think it's probably my favorite yyy's song.
    i've read lyrics online that say "your love's gonna count", and this one says "your love's gonna pout", but its "pop". y'all deaf?

    General Commenti thought she was saying "pound" not pout or pop or whatever.
    oh well, it makes sense i guess either way.
