We were just standin there
Two kids who didn't care
I saw you get lifted away

We were two little boys
Abducted by the noise
They didn't care if you were destroyed

But I got a feelin
That I can't, no I can't shake away
That maybe, just maybe you were healin
And didn't need your brain novocaine

Papa was smoking grass
He hit, I always passed
But you had pain runnin in your veins

They sat you in a chair
Prescription held you there
You must have thought livin was unfair

    General Commenti think its about the two brothers who make up two of the three members of RHD and how they grew up in a household where there father did a lot of drugs and maybe their mother as well and the song is about how they overcame their predisposition to those drugs...im not sure if they really did live in that sort of household but im pretty sure thats what the song is about

    General CommentThats probably true...I've read interviews of RHD on JamBase and they talked about how they grew up in Boulder, CO around alot of drugs and when their parents got divorced it messed them up...the crazy part is the band is sober now when they tour...I saw the band come through Iowa City and the guitarist Daniel had his 21st B-Day that night and he wouldn't let me buy him a beer that night...They did an all Led Zep Encore playin Rock'N'Roll, Heartbreaker, and Immigrant Song: and it really sounded fresh cuz they jammed and took those songs to new places...Anyways, this song is beautiful and I love when they play it live...
