Like a skull balloon I believe in us So put the petal down and turn your high beams off And I dial in your number hoping that you're awake It's a loss sometimes but that's the risk that I'll take I believe in us I believe in us

So put your diamond up for auction but don't kiss me I won't let you Shout my name into the ocean but don't kiss me I wont let you I believe in us

And anytime that your walls start coming down I’ll be there in the front seat yelling Run the red light, run the red light, run it I hate the way that I don't say what I want But what I want is to want what you want Run the red light run the red light, run it

Out of Eden don't look back now But don't kiss me I won't let you Down in my town they don't care now But don't kiss me I won't let you I believe in us

So drive your car into the ocean But don't kiss me I won’t let you Make the headlines, kill your family but don't kiss me i won't let you Run the red light, run it

    General CommentI've gone over and over this song and couldn't get a grasp on the meaning then I read that it was about having unprotected sex with a minor.. And it sorta made sence but I got more this guys inlove with an underage girl like when he says "put your dimonds up for auction" like give up your virginity. And also when he's says " what I want is to want what you want" like he wants her but only if she does.

    Lol I think its more based on a relationship not sex. " Down in my town they don't care now" sorta fits.

    But that's just me. :)

    General Comment"Out of Eden" like the garden of eden, yeah?...like losing purity, growing up etc?

    Anyway i've always thought this song was sweet. "what I want is to want what you want" is such a cute line!!

    Great band! Saw them not long ago. Such good stage presence. And they closed with a cover of Killing In The Name. SO GOOD!
