"How Low" as written by and Jose Gonzalez....
How low are you willing to go
Before you reach all your selfish goals
Punch line after punch line
Leaving us sore, leaving us sore

Absorbed in your ill hustling
Feeding a monster, just feeding a monster
Invasion after invasion
This means war, this means war

Someday you'll be up to your knees
In the shit you see
All the gullible that you mislead
Won't be up or it

Where to, will you relocate
Now that it's war, now that it's war

    General Comment"this next song is about mindless consumerism...."

    jose gonzales at a show in Milwaukee, spring of '08.
    makes sense to me.

    this is just my take on that comment and his lyrics.
    we're the monsters being fed.
    we'll be up to our knees, quite literally, in the pollution that is a result of "mindless consumerism".
    where will we relocate once we've irreparably fucked up earth, where will we go?

    General Commentsometimes i think he says "you'll be up to your knees in the shifting seas" don't know though.

    Anyways, this song points us in the general direction of the entire album. Illusion, selfishness, and the pointless of human life. "It's in our nature" reflects the general inability of humanity to escape these hindrances because of the way we are constructed biologically, and the problem of having to deal with others of the same sort.

    I do believe, as I've said in other posts relating to songs from this album, that Jose is trying to lay it all on the table so we can see the situation and perhaps cause us to realize how we manage to do more harm than is necessary sometimes while living with such realizations.

    Even though the pointlessness and impossibility of conclusions and complete peace is present in our lives, we can still carry on with a little more grace if we reassess and come back in touch with the consequences of various behaviors and actions.

    General Commentreally? NO one has commented on how annoying it is that EVERY lyrics site with this song on it says "shit you seed"?

    shit you seed?

    no.

    i love googling it and seeing the hundreds of people who've reposted it to various blogs and social networking sites this way, too.

    anyway, beautiful song. mindless consumerism, indeed.

    Song MeaningIt's about doing things without seeing the external effects. He refers to large companies and stupid countries. His words :) He tells it in an video of it and I think it makes sense.
