"She's Mine" as written by Larry Blackmon, Nathan David Leftenant and Antonio Matthews....
Well, the witches stare with their limbs akimbo
Silhouettes a statues up in the window
Call me the coming with the crooked crescendo
But I don't

Devotees dance among the
Dancing moms on the promenade
Into a tabernago on the long
But I don't follow

Because she's mine, she's mine
She's mine, all mine
Yeah, she's mine, mine
Mine

Midnight mood across the peoples parking
I fled the fire like a spin and spark upon
Zoo approaching the dark
She was waiting right there for me

She knows that my hands are empty
As I go pass, her mother's a envy
And I don't have to fumble in the dark
For my keys

I believe she's mine, she's mine
She's mine, all mine
Yeah, she's mine, mine
Mine

The pupils gathered in the yard
Around the [Incomprehensible] made of cars
And waited for that leaders words
But his words didn't make much sense

His mouth is spat out of fist today
'Cause in his tongue is swirled in a southern swagger
And I love they all, the people gather
But they're worn in a trance

And she's mine, she's mine
She's mine, all mine
Yeah, she's mine, mine
Mine

I was strong before the quarter canes
Toss my soul to the furnace flames
Where all my heroes have been slain
Exiled or put in prison

Because they rose above the mess
And because their power opposed the fading
Because they spoke of something else
When everybody else didn't

The music fills the space between
The deities in the prophecies
Nobodys pressing the steed
Standing in the sand

She looks at me so fearlessly
And I take it all too seriously
But it all becomes a flee to me
And makes me understand

That she's mine, she's mine
She's mine, all mine
Yeah, she's mine, mine
Mine

Yeah, she's mine, all mine
All mine, all mine
Yeah, she's mine, yes, mine
Oh, mine

Yes, she's mine, yeah, mine
Yeah, mine
Yeah, she's mine

    General CommentGotta love the George Bush-basing:

    the pupils gather in the yard
    around the pulpit made of cards
    and waited for their leader's words
    but his words didn't make much sense

    his mouth it spat out a fist of daggers
    and his tongue is swirled in a southern swagger
    and i looked at all the people gathered
    but they were all in a trance

    Irregardless of your viewpoint, that paints quite a picture

    General Commentthis song is so sweet.
    these lines are perfection:

    the music fills the space between
    the deities and the prophecies
    of our bodies pressed endlessly
    silent in the sand

    General CommentCourt of canes...

    Alluding to the fact that the people in power are old fashioned and not ready to make changes, maybe?

    General Commentcourt of canes?

    probably means that he stood up againt all the bs the "leader" had said and done and for that he was punished, like those before him: "where all my heroes had been slain, exiled, or put in prison"

    General Commenthas anybody ever noticed how much this song sounds like bob dylan's I want you? they sound really similar, and some of the words make sense with each other, though not too much, maybe it's a response to dylan... what do you think?

    General Commenti think i might have cracked the "i was thrown before the court of canes" line

    What is a court? a place where something is judged, a place where truths come out, an event is judged

    canes could be short for hurricanes, and seeing how the rest of the song bashes on bush, the line is probably talking about the bad circumstances of katrina

    in essence, i saw the truth of how apathetic our government can be during katrina and it broke my heart

    -let me know your thoughts
