"Chips Ahoy!" as written by Craig Finn, Tad Kubler and Franz Nicolay....
She put nine hundred dollars on the fifth horse in the sixth race
I think its name is "chips ahoy!"
It came in six lengths ahead, we spent the whole next week getting high
At first I thought that she hit off some tip that she got from some other boy
We were overjoyed

Wo-ah-oh-ee-ah-oh-ee-oh
Wo-ah-oh-a-ee-oh-oh
Wo-ah-oh-ee-ah-oh-ee-oh
Wo-ah-oh-a-ee-oh-oh

I got a girl and she don't have to work
She can tell which horse is gonna finish in first
Some nights the painkillers make the pain even worse

Came in six lengths ahead
We spent the whole next week getting high
I love this girl but I can't tell when she's having a good time

How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't let me touch you? (wo-ah-oh-ee-ah-oh-ee-oh)
How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't even dance? (wo-ah-oh-a-ee-oh-oh)
How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't let me touch you? (wo-ah-oh-ee-ah-oh-ee-oh)
How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't even dance? (wo-ah-oh-a-ee-oh-oh)

She's hard on the heart and she's soft to the touch
She gets migraine headaches when she does it too much
She always does it too much

How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't let me touch you? (wo-ah-oh-ee-ah-oh-ee-oh)
How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't even dance? (wo-ah-oh-a-ee-oh-oh)
How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't let me touch you? (wo-ah-oh-ee-ah-oh-ee-oh)
How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't even dance? (wo-ah-oh-a-ee-oh-oh)
And you won't even dance.

    General CommentI think its about a guy who finds a girl with an unending supply of money and drugs (obtained illegally, except he doesn't know exactly how.) Like a Chips Ahoy cookie, she has more 'chocolate chips' than anyone he's ever met. At first he thinks she is complete, but soon he finds out thats true only in the materialistic sense. Shes spiritually empty (unfulfilled, won't let him get close to her emotionally etc). Essentially its about someone realizing that money makes life easier but it doesn't make you happy. Kind of like how cookies are delicious(!) but if thats all you ever eat, you'll never be fulfilled.

    General CommentAccording to the live CD, this song is about a guy who is with a girl who can predict which horse is going to win every race and you'd think that would solve all his problems, but it doesn't. I still don't fully understand the chorus though.

    General CommentI agree with elstongunnn on here (except all the cookie analogies). She uses painkillers but they make it worse. She has all this money that buys her a materialistic high, but she never gets the paralell high (enjoyment-which is what high implies). She makes him want her with her looks, money, and sex. However, she never feels fulfilled with her. they both are not getting what they think they are getting.
