Tickle me pink with laughter
Backwards we wind up spinning
Another shot of whiskey (another shot of whiskey)
To train our feet to move

We can't feel loved
We can't feel free
We can't feel at all

(We're taking some time) we can't wait for
(We're packing our bags) our bags, too full
Unloved, we'll lose ourselves
(We're taking some time) we can't wait for
(We're packing our bags) our bags, too full
Unloved, we'll lose ourselves
(Once more we'll lose ourselves)

We think and drink our cocktails
Sit and watch the burning bridges
Throw me another one (roll me another one)
To train our minds to move

We're taking some time

Why can't you set the trucks to sunset
And we forget
Ride the sun to make us whole

    General Commentcorrections!
    its coffee not cocktails

    also to train our minds to groove.

    we cant feel love we can feel free we cant feel at home

    at the end its " a kiss to send the stress, to sunsets and we forget
    to find a sound to make us move"

    General Commentbtw joe sobered up... no more drunken shows for him... when i saw him play after he was sober from the liquor he held the longest scream ever it was amazing!

    i think this song is about the drinking execively. "another shot of whiskey to train our feet to move" would be like your just drinking for liquid courage, all the wrong reasons. and as for "we can't feel love we can't feel free we can't feel at home" it refers to drinking not helping much at all with your problems n stuff

    General Comment"sit and watch the burning bridges"
    probably my favorite line of all time... saying you're sitting here knowing everything you're doing wrong and all the mistakes that you're making and won't be able to correct later... and yet you still do it.
