"I'm Holding You" as written by and Michael Melchiondo....
I'm flyin' (flyin')
In a frame of my mind that time cannot erase
I'm seein' (seein')
The future, the past as I lay the present to waste
I'm scopin' (scopin')
All these feelings I have and hopin' for them to come true
And I'm holdin' something more precious than fine ore, baby
I'm holdin' you

I'm breathin' (breathin')
The fumes of the grid that rid my lobe of oxygen
I'm climbin' (climbin')
The walls to where good and evil make amends
I'm trippin', writhin' and squealin', pukin'
Looking for someone like you
And I'm holdin' something more precious than fine ore, baby
I'm holdin' you

I'm flyin' (flyin')
In a frame of my mind that time cannot erase
I'm seein' (seein')
The future, the past as I lay the present to waste
I'm scopin' (scopin')
All these feelings I have and hopin' for them to come true
And I'm holdin' something more precious than fine ore, baby
I'm holdin' you
And I'm holdin' something more precious than fine ore, baby
I'm holdin' you

    General CommentI doubt it. I think the references to the 'grid' and 'fine ore' imply the life of a coal mine worker, describing the wonderful effects of oxygen-deprived, coal-dust-riddled air on his mind and body.

    General CommentMy sister is convinced this song is about taking 'shrooms, and she's successfully managed to convince me of the same.

    Everything about it really does just scream "I'M TAKING MUSHROOMS AND TALKING RUBBISH!"

    General CommentThis song is not about Shrooms, I think this is one of the few Ween serious songs and it's about holding his love
