"Hurry" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli/schmutz....
I wrote a note to my future ghost
Quoting words I've spoke
And that I meant only half the time
Now I only speak between grinding teeth
And my constant sleep
Cause that's the pace that I've got to go

So run along cause you had best be on your way

[Chorus]
Don't worry just hurry
Cause you have got a lot to lose here
But I'm catching up on that lost sleep
Do I have a lot to lose

I am a man with my task at hand
And my swollen glands
And just a couple of days to go
Until I'm on a stage

With my voice and bass
And all my choices made
And all the places I've got to go

So run along cause you had best be on your way

[Chorus x2]

So run along cause you had best be on your way
Well run along cause you had best be on your way
Well hey hey hey

[Chorus x2]

    General Commenti think this song is about when kenny is not that famous...when he still is very excited about going up on stage and singing his lungs out, with his bass...

    General CommentI think Kenny is always excited about performing, regardless of how 'famous" he gets [wow, it's weird to think of him of famous]. He truly loves what he does.
    Anyway, I think this is about life on the road- the fact that it's such a fast-paced lifestyle & all.

    General Commentno offense to mr vasoli but he is not famous. i think his writing is amazing and at warped they played awesome. so much energy. but he is not famous. he is the first person i saw at warped he was just standing next to the tsl tent and like no one was really recognizing him at all. so it was easy to talk to him anyways haha

    General CommentKen is a great guy. Easy to talk to, I have talked to him after shows many times. Hopefully this album ends up being huge for them. They put so much work into their music, and they really love what they do. Hopefully the reward will be good for them.

    General CommentI think this song refers to the writing and final mixing of b.o.a.t.s. They want him to hurry and come up with the songs, and now he's waiting around for them to finish the final mixing. They both have a lot to lose if it's not done soon. That's why his glands are swollen (recording), and now he he has nothing to do with his time. He can't wait to get back to touring.

    General CommentHmm there is kinda mixed interpretations of this song. I personally think it's about rushing through life and how everyone wants you do things quickly. he's telling the listener to "don't worry, just hurry" but he justs wants to slow down a bit but he wonders if he has "a lot to lose". At least that's I understood it.

    In Kenny's own words:"This is a manifestation of the feeling we get that we are not living out lives fast enough or up to our full potential. A motivational piece."
