"Wattershed" as written by and David Eric Grohl....
I stick it to the mailman
I'm pinned against a pot plant
I'm sick of all the sun-tan
Oily with the ray-ban

Take that to the bank and call it a check
Masked without a weapon

I'm skinny as a spit pan
Dealing with the shit plan
Playing with my bad hand
Just another rock band

Take that to the man
and call it a check
Trapped within a contract

Hey there boy while you were catching the black widow
The rest of us were watching Melrose

I wanna swim in the wattershed
I wanna listen to the flowerhead
I lost a gallon and still I bled
I keep on thinking I get ahead

Pissed at all the disc jam
Pissed about the 5-ham
Pissed about the green state
I miss it and I can't wait

Hey man can't you tell it's still a problem?
See you at the devil's tower

I wanna swim in the wattershed
I wanna listen to the flowerhead
I lost a gallon and still I bled
I keep on thinking I get ahead

Pissed at all the disc jam
Pissed about the 5-ham
Pissed about the green state
I miss it and I can't wait

    General CommentI don't think those lyrics are right, whoever posted them, sorry... :)
    I agree to a degree with the bright eyed girl though, I think he's trying to encapsulate his struggle to create something new musically, when people (in his own mind) may have expected Foo Fighter's sound to be rather Nirvana like. "Pissing on a wet wall" in particular, he's saying that he fell he's just doing what's already been done...

    General CommentYou should hear the acoustic version he does of this, telling a story in the voice of the singer from the B52s. It's hilarious.
