"The Fall" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
Pretending that the way's through the door
I want to see you falling
A thousand reasons why I'd loose my hair
I'm not your darling darling
I want to see you falling

You tell me that your backs to the wall
I want to see you falling
The savor comes and a thief takes a walk

Take a walk

The feedback is on the ball
Your feedback don't taste good at all

You help yourself but its at my expense
I want to see you falling
I don't touch my furlong for no one
I'm not your darling darling
I want to see you fall

To count this and they pledge here they go
I'm not your darling darling
A thousand reasons they won't cut his hair
We're not your darlings darlings
The Savior came and a thief took a walk

    General Commenti hear
    "the drugs and the rain"

    this song could possibly be about Hurricane Katrina and how the people basically had to depend on eachother for safety, shelter, food, water, etc.

    either way, this song is perfect from start to finish.
    this song introduced me to Red Hunter.

    General Commenti read in a couple of interviews and i've come to stand strictly by the idea that it's about the end of modern civilization, and how once all of it's gone (technology, i mean)(although if technology were gone then we'd just start to build it right back up so this sort of thing is unrealistic, but whatever, it sounds cool) we'd go back to being hunter-gatherer's and all that ("now i hunt the buffalo"), and being pretty primitive, and how it would be beautiful. andrew bird has a very very similar song called "tables and chairs". i think i like them about equally. but yeah, going back to nature, man. that's like poetry.

    General Commentred said something somewhere about how he read what FEMA's plans were if something happened to california

    something how they'd set everyone up in tents in the desert.

    matches with the lyrics...

    the notes he's hitting are E, B, A, and C# sometimes . . .
