"Down a Different River" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
Stuffed to the eyeballs with God knows what
You're a conversational hazard
Talking so quickly with so much ease
I think you might have just snorted a blizzard
Oh! Won't you tell it to someone else?

And we'll go down a different river
And we'll see where it carries us
Meet me at the muster station
And if the ship's going down we'll swim for the ground
Come on, come and join us here

Living a lie when I'm lying here
I've got windswept eyes in the morning
Doesn't improve as the day goes on
You've got shag pile perm in the evening!
If I could only make out the door

And we'll go down a different river
And we'll see where it carries us
Meet me at the muster station
And if the ship's going down we'll swim for the ground
Come on, come and join us here, here, here, here

If I could only make out the door!
If I could only make out the door!
If I could only make out the door!
If I could only make out the door!
(Slowly down a different river)
If I could only make out the door!
(Slowly down a different river)
If I could only make out the door!
(Slowly down a different river)
If I could only make out the door!
(Slowly down a different river)
If I could only make out the door!
(Slowly down a different river
Slowly down)

    My InterpretationI think it's about someone on cocaine talking too much when the other person (the narrator in the song,) is on most likely ketamine, or just strong cannabis, and he offers his choice of drug to the person on coke so they can be on the same wave length. However this just leads to going 'Down A Different River' albeit a more relaxed one. The second verse is probably about trying to function the next morning, taking until evening to regain normality but still having wholly messed up tangled hair, hardly being able to make out the door.
