"Yea Yeah" as written by and Kimberly Ann Schifino Matthew Wesley Johnson....
forget your court date
lock me away, the world waits
cuffs cut deep to the bones
we're trying to sleep, we're trying to sleep
i hope these hands, WOAHH-OHH-OHH
can turn back time
i want time to be a game and we're losing this one,
but still i'm sane


yea yeah
yea yeah
yea yeah


you stole tapes and a flashlight
on a summer night from my car
I found something in a lightening storm
with heavy rain and thunder like melted storm, yeah
when everything seems to wash away
I walk here with just two feet on the ground
ground, ground, ground, ground, ground!


yea yeah
yea yeah
yea yeah


lock me up, officer
what a mistake i made
yea yeah, take me away
i say this to myself
close the door on myself
yea yeah, take me away
I found something in a lightening storm
with heavy rain and thunder like melted storm, yeah
when everything seems to wash away
I walk here with just two feet on the ground
ground, no, no, no, no!


yea yeah
yea yeah
yea yeah

    General Commentd00d, correct me if you see anything, 'cause there were a few lines that i really had no idea about so i filled it with something that kinda sounded right and made a little sense.


    and OMFG, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

    General Commentoh, and this is what Matt said the song was about...

    "I stress out really easily. I get bad anxiety. I get really stuck on things, like things you can’t control… It’s basically about not worrying about things you can’t change. I remember once I got this ticket for drinking on the street. And it was such not a big deal, but it was a Friday night and it ruined my whole night. I was like, “Man, what bad luck! I could’ve just waited another block and opened [the drink] when I got to the party.” Little things that just build up and bum me out— that’s what the song is about."

    General CommentI found it interesting. Their music is composed so happy and this song has such a deep twisted meaning. It makes me remember a book by Camus called the Outsider. But they are really really happy through it all, which makes me happy. It reminds me alot of Happy Hardcore. But these guys are great like and indie punk rock. Kay, I hoped you enjoyed it too.

    General CommentI always thought the lightening part went "I found something in a lightening storm" not felt.

    Other than that, I just think this song is about how ridiculous things can turn out before you know what has happened.

    General Commenti thught the line "i want to put just two feet on the
    ground," was, " I walk here with just two feet on the ground"

    and the line"lock me up, officer what a mistake i made"
    was, "lock me up, officer one mi-stake i made"
    and thats it
