"I Am Warm + Powerful" as written by John Robert Cardwell, Philip Abram Dickey and William Lincoln Knauer....
We've got amnesia from the slightest problems
you start shaking
and you start talking

takes more than working now to keep you from falling
'cause work is starting and things are falling
I'm in a real good place
to light out without leaving a trace
you said i was the only one
now i just don't know whats going on

we don't get out
very much
we don't get out
very much
I'm afraid were loosing touch with our balled up little crowd
when we get out and get drunk
and we get high and don't talk
we just walk and walk and walk until we find ourselves alone
but at least we've got each other

it's not so bad if you can't remember
this is just an excuse for something

we have got amnesia from the slightest problems
you start shaking and you start talking

alone where i can't be you
alone where i can't be you
i don't think a lot about you
I've been thinking a lot about you

    General Commenti think this songi s about that 'first' breakup when you are an adult, post-school and trying to get a start making something of yourself. or i don't know, it could be about a relationship that ended or cannot survive that phase. this is really one of those songs that i can't tell exactly what it is about but it just seems to apply to the way things are in my life right now.

    General Commenti changed my mind about what this song is about. i think it's about just the frustration of relating to someone else when you communicate of a subliminal level, and not so much in words. "when we get out and get drunk/when we get high and don't talk"

    My InterpretationI see it as a post-breakup song, definitely. It makes me think of a couple that were great friends and dated despite knowing there were some things that wouldn't work out, and now keep trying to make it work despite past experience ("we've got amnesia from the slightest problems") and have tried to stay friends but their group is sort of falling apart, everything they do is hollow - "we get high and don't talk"

    They're stuck in a rut and can't get past each other.
