When will it come around
The wind that will inspire
When will it make a sound
The sound I desire

'Cause we all need something to do
A certain something... That's true

Floating upstream I've seen
The spider and the snake
A trip without pause when
I saw my mistake

'Cause we all need something to do
A certain something... That's true

All my life I have known who I am
A troubled man, but I stand
All my life I have seen what it means
To be myself in this dream

'Cause we all need something to do
A certain someone... That's you

    General CommentI've never heard this song, but I think that Anthony thinks that we shouldn't spend our lives doing nothing. You can't just wait around for something you really want. You have to go after it. That's what I think it means, anyway. =)

    General CommentI think its about how people just sit about watching the world pass by and that your dream will never come true unless you get up and go for it and keep trying.

    General CommentI love this song - i think it should have made it to Stadium Arcadium but nevermind. I think this is about knowing who you are, where you've come from and what you need to do. If you know this and act on it then the things you want and wait for can happen

    General CommentThis song was made for me, cause I'm a lazy butthole. Totally agree on the "Pluto" album thing, anyone want to start a petition????? The Chilis should know about this,cause every single b-side i've heard from the SA era is so awesome. The only reason I can think of for them not making the album, is that many of them sound similar or like continuations of the singles and while such continuity is awesome on a single, it's not appreciated on a whole album.

    General CommentThe best is the Dani California EP. I love Million Miles of Water, there's just something about it. Oh, and I love the lyrics.

    PS. Where any of the band members' girlfriends in one of their videos? Which one?

    i think in this part, ak pictures life as floating upstream, and the spider and the snake as two such characters he might meet. Looking at these two characters makes him examine himself and his bad decisions and flaws
