"Up!" as written by Anthony Gonzalez and Morgan Grace Kibby....
[Repeat 2X]
If I clean my rocket
We'll go flying today
And we'll hit the pockets
Of warm and crispy air

Oh you lovely boy you smell so sweet
We ride so well
And we load our pistols as we perch upon
My razor wings
Up to the planets, up to the bodies of the galaxy
We fly, we feed, we suck, we bleed, we need...

[Repeat 2X]
If I clean my rocket
We'll go flying today
And we'll hit the pockets
Of warm and crispy air

Oh we flee the scene of our little crime
We feel so free
But the hounds of law they bite our heels
As we retreat
Up to the planets, up to the bodies of the galaxy
Of the galaxy we fly, we feed, we suck, we bleed, we need...

[Repeat 4X]
If I clean my rocket (clean your rocket)
And we'll hit the pockets

    General CommentI beleve the song is about heroin..


    Shes talking about if she can get out of bed, pull it together and go cop (clean my rocket today)
    the whole time she's thinking about how high she is going to get and is pretty exited, and dope sick (we'll go flying today)
    And then as she goes through her drugs quick.. but moments of euphoria and warmness after each hit (hit the pockets of warm crispy air)

    then the chorus... when she gets her dope she looks ad her score, and checks to see if it smells right, it does. then.. she loads her syringe.. plunges the hammer in and blasts off into that amazing heroin high. and that feeling right there, is her everything. (Oh, you lovely boy You smell so sweet We ride so well And we load our pistols As we perch upon my razor wings Up to the planets Up to the bodies of the galaxy We fly, we feed, we suck, we bleed, we need . . . )


    Thanks for taking the time to read.. and that is just how i saw it.. not once did this make me think of sex.. i'm not seeing that angle at all. it seems pretty clear its about some type of IV drug.. and my guess is heroin.

    General CommentI get a very strong Kate bush vibe from this song. And I think it is intentional.
    "Hounds of law" sounds a lot like "Hounds of Love". Her singing even sounds alot like Kate bush, an obvious flirt with her :)
