I was told when I was young, if you dug a hole straight down you'd go all the way to China
You have many noble features, and the roots that run so deep they go all the way to China

I come, the new bull
Coming on the Mayflower
I come, the new bull
Coming on the Mayflower

If you squeeze a little closer then you'll all the fit in the frame
And everybody smile
California is the way, they still play the double feature
But you'll have to learn to drive

I come, the new bull
Coming on the Mayflower
I come, the new bull
Coming on the Mayflower

    General CommentAthenian here and love The Glands. It's been over a decade and no comments, so I'll gladly be the first.

    Firstly, The Mayflower is a diner in Athens as well as that Pilgrim thing.

    My interpretation of this song is that there was a lot of smoke that was blown up their ass from the record company. "You have many noble features, and the roots that run so deep they go all the way to China"(everyone digs you)

    And then struggling with promotion of it: "If you squeeze a little closer then you'll all the fit in the frame
    And everybody smile"

    California is the way, they still play the double feature: Being told to relocate to a bigger market(and note double feature of course being record execs getting the name wrong should be double thriller; their first album,)

    But you'll have to learn to drive: my take, means yer on yer own guys.

    As far as the "I come, the new bull" line goes i dunno. Could be the were a little disillusioned and said hey, here we are the new bull brought out by this shit company.

    Anyway, Ross and the rest of the Glands have touched my life and a lot of my friends. I wish that you would make more music, but thank you for what you have made.
