So it seems
Our disc was run over
Shattered all our dreams
The sun is shining down
We play disc
In every single town
That we stop in
Chris, Paul, Steve, Dan,
Flores, Rogan,
Our drummer,
And me

What a nice breeze
Today has flipped over
Kind of like a dream
Running around
What is lost
Can always be found

175, 175, 175 grams of disc

The wind may blow
The snow may fall
We're playing disc
Late into the fall
And the winter
I just met her
Hardly know her
Wanna make out with her
Again

I need another beer
It seems I've drank the twelve ounces of the one I have right here
Stop the van, Dan
We need to piss
We need to
It's our, our dying wish

175, 175, 175 grams of disc
175, 175, 175 grams of disc

What's better than Grant's apartment?
Disc!
What's better than Grant's apartment?
Disc!
What's better than disc?
Nothing!

175, 175, 175 grams of disc
175, 175, 175 grams of disc
Grams of disc
Grams of disc
Grams of disc
Yeah, grams of disc

    General Comment175 grams is the regulation weight of an ultimate disc (commonly known as a frisbee...). I love this song. It reminds me a lot of summers down the Cape with my friends playing ultimate on the beach or in a field. It also makes me think of my Ultimate team in college. It's just an all around fun song...

    General CommentULTIMATE ROCKS!!! not much meaning to this song really..just a goofy type song about the joys of ultimate frisbee.. i even liked this song before i played frisbee.. and i thought they were talking about some kinda drug.. called dis or something.. and i was confused.. but then i realized that 175 was the grams in an ultimate frisbee (and of course i use the term frisbee for easier understanding as i am aware that it is a brand and the sport is simply called ultimate) hoorah ultimate!

    General CommentI believe this song is beautiful imagery backdropping dave's philosophies on how he lives his life. "175 gram of disc" seems to me to be a prop symbolizing life and its weight (dave [as well as many artists] uses circular devices to capture the essence of life's never-ending cycle like a circle has no beginning or end). The disc is like holding your life and its worries and purpose/goals in your hands and tossing it the most accurate you can without worry; as in the disc that seems to float on the air and him and his friends killing time everywhere they go.
    I also view the lines,The wind may blow
    "The snow may fall
    We're playing disc
    Late into the fall
    And the winter
    I just met her
    Hardly know her
    Wanna make out with her
    Again"

    -to describe the bitterness of the world
    that is forced onto us by ebb and flow.
    They go with it head on against the world in its pitfalls and hang-ups
    by defying weather keeping him from leaving grants apartment in the winter and fall (late). He also doesn't "know this girl" very well but he would rather go for it and have fun than hold up. And, then he say "again" after the thought to create the implication that he can't even wait long enough to think about it; it's already done.

    Last of all, my favorite opinion on the lyrics is within the lines,
    "I need another beer
    It seems I've drank the twelve ounces of the one I have right here
    Stop the van, Dan
    We need to piss
    We need to
    It's our, our dying wish"

    -another example of drunkenly stumbling through life's ebb and flow (beer and piss, in this case); and putting a weight to it. It's like he's saying he's going to piss away his time with his friends ("it's our dying wish").

    A very lighthearted, fun, energetic, enthusiastic account of taking on the world the best you can,
    "Yeah, grams of disc."
