"The Rush" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
Taste
I love the taste
I need its warm rush

Rush
I need the rush
To pulse through my veins

And I'll love you tonight
Oh I love you tonight
And tomorrow you may just
Feel the same

Please don't bite down

I will know I'm alive

Rush
There is no rush
There is no reason
To blush
There's only us
To keep it between

And I'll love you tonight
I will love you tonight
And tomorrow we may just feel the same

And I won't bite down
'Til the moment counts

And I'll know I'm alive
And I'll know I'm alive
Give me some teeth
Give me something
Unforgettable
And I'll know I'm alive

And I'll know I'm alive
And I'll know I'm alive
And the moment's right

And I'll know I'm alive
And I'll know I'm alive
Give me some teeth
Give me something
Unforgettable
And I'll know I'm alive

And I'll know I'm alive
And I'll know that I am alive

    General CommentWhy don't ya'll stop gushing like schoolgirls and actually tell us what you think the song means? Flooding the forum with how much you like the CD isn't what this site is supposed to be about.

    I think this song is talking about two people who have sex but aren't together. When they are having sex, he feels alive and it feels amazing and they feel connected and he craves that sensation that wouldn't necessarily last past the night.

    General CommentI've noticed that on a lot of Poison Trees Chris has gone for simplicity. We listeners are those asking for 'something unforgettable', and I'm just worried that however effectively concise some songs like this one may be, this makes them less immediately memorable than Screaming Infidelities or Hands Down for example where they've got this distinctive feel to them. On examination, the new album's a little hit and miss... Either that or I'm just growing up.

    General Commentyeahhh, i partially agree w/ you, coma boy, but at the same time, we see songs like screaming infidelities and hands down as classics because they are the songs that we instantly loved of chris's when we first heard him.
    i do agree with you though in the sense that this song seems so simple that i won't put it on repeat over and over like my old favorites of his.
    like everything else i've ever heard by dashboard, though, i will listen to it a lot and love it. i think these new songs just need to sink in...

    General Commentand those old classics bring back so many memories of the things we were doing back then. there is no way dashboard can compete with their own old songs.

    General CommentThis song is so different from there other songs.
    It's so just The Shins combined with DCFC.
    I like it a lot though.

    General CommentI've been a fan of chris since day one, and I'm really impressed with the new CD. I didn't like the new direction Dusk and Summer was going in, but I'm happy the pop-radio songs were cut back on the new CD. I think that this song just shows how he can experiment with other styles...but still stay true to his original sensibilities.

    General Commentgah. cubbyblues. it's not like this is a super-deep, layered-themes song or something.

    General CommentI don't know if anyone else noticed this, but I like how the ticking throughout the song kind of ties into the theme of time and how even though there's no rush, you can still hear the ticking inside nagging at you
