"Carry Me Home" as written by and Dennis Wilson....
Used to dream until I stopped writing fiction
All right well that's not true
Maybe it ended when I ended competition
Because I'd always lose

My therapist could never classify conditions
Alright whats wrong already
My pharmacist had better fill up my prescriptions
Here just take two of these and call me in the morning

Oh oh oh won't you carry me home
It's the last time in life that I'll ever try

The streets were flooded and in the tides were pessimists
So I just dove right in I felt at home
I felt alive I felt that I fit in
So I'll just keep dreaming

Wait for the wind to blow
Can't carry myself can't carry me home
On my own will
Wait for the wind to blow
Can't bury myself can't carry us both
On my own will

    General Commenti think that the guy has horribble claustrophobia problems and that the people couldnt fix it so he has to go everywhere with someone so that when he gets claustrophobic he has someone to carry him home when he passes out because he cant carry himself home then in the end he goes somewhere without someone and he pases out and dies and cant bury himself or the person whos suppossed to be with him because they will be charged for murder and will get the chair!

    General CommentEasily the best song on So Sudden.

    I think it's about depression: he doesn't dream anymore, he can't seem to succeed in anything he tried to do ("I'd always lose"), the therapist is no help and just gives him more pills. He's being drowned by a tide of pessimists, etc.

    And then in the third verse, he actuall dream, though he previously stated he couldn't, and he dreams that he feels like he fits in.

    Saying "Carry me home" is just asking to find a place where he feels like he belongs.

    General Commentomg i love this song. it needs a music video. i'll make it! um okay. i think this song is about a relationship because it's like he found "the perfect girl" and now he's all happy etc. wait i just forgot where i was going with this... oh yeah. okay so he's like all depressed like noseovertail said and so when he meets her, he can think and everything again. this has to be my favorite song on this album.

    General CommentI think this song is ment to be a reflection." Used to dream until I stopped writing fiction
    All right well that’s not true
    Maybe it ended when I ended competition
    Because I’d always lose" I also agree with noseovertail711 on the carry me home place where he belongs. Also i think this part" Wait for the wind to blow
    Can’t carry myself can’t carry me home
    On my own will
    Can't let you go just yet
    Can't bury my self can't carry us both
    On my own will"
    is about waiting for some sort of catalyst to get things movng because the person does not feel thay can do it alone. The other person that was mentioned "can't carry us both on my own will" is someone the person is trying to help along with themself.

    General CommentI agree with noseovertail, but with him saying he "Can't carry [himself]", like he's so overloaded with burden he needs someone to "carry [him] home."

    General Commenti saw this interview w/ The Hush Sound and Greta said that So Sudden was a CD based on fantasy whereas Like Vines is more Reality

    soo this song is not Reality
