"Vice/Versa" as written by and Andrew/campbell Sudderth....
Mountains of molehills, a grapevine in my ear
Spots on the tiger while the townspeople gather to hear
While the nest in my hands starve for rest
Sticklers for cheap fun, you ought to be ashamed
To trade in your heirlooms for an all day black market parade
For a grand prize a slap in the face

[Chorus:]
For you
Bold faced type covers your text
It must have been winter
Still-frame, no dice
Where do you get your evidence?
Move now, stay still
It takes a luminescent hue
The wood, the crest that's weaved outside your vest
Still-frame, no dice

Loons light the skyline while you sleep on concrete
With both your eyes open, I just kept pullin' on both your feet
Someday together we'll breathe, breathe

[Chorus]

Roll down your windows; I know there's a shortcut ahead
The long drive home is taking its toll, oh
We just to need to rest

Still-frame, no dice
Where do you get your evidence?
Move now, stay still
It takes a luminescent hue
The wood, the crest that's weaved outside your vest
Still-frame, no dice

    General CommentI recently read other interpretations and I happened to agree. But mine is a little different. I also think its about the talboids,celebs, etc....

    Mountains of molehills
    (all the mansions and big houses in hollywood)
    A grapevine in my ear
    (the speaker hearing about what the celebs are up to)
    Spots on the tiger
    While the townspeople gather to hear
    (everyones wants to hear updates on celebs)
    While the nests in my hands starve for rest
    (i work hard to make ends meat, this will make sense in a little bit)

    Sticklers for cheap fun
    You oughta be ashamed
    To trade in your heirlooms
    For an all-day black market parade
    (famous people do stupid things and make themselves look like idiots, and take their money for granted)
    For a grand prize, a slap in the face


    For you
    Bold face type covers your text
    It must have been winter
    (talks about celebs in magazines)

    Still frame, no dice
    (paparazzi taking pictures to make money and sometimes dont get good pics)
    Where do you get your evidence?
    (a celeb wonder where the rumors are coming from)
    Move back, stay still
    (paparazzi still taking pics)
    It takes a luminescent hue
    (its takes the flash of a camera)
    The wood, the crest
    That's weaved outside your vest
    (about the expensive clothes)
    Still frame, no dice

    Loons light the skyline
    (all the lights from the big houses)
    While you sleep on concrete
    With both your eyes open
    (you, a poor person, sleeps on a crappy bed and cant sleep b/c your worried about how you will pay bills)
    I just kept pulling on both your feet
    Someday, together, we'll breathe, breathe...
    (the speaker trying to cheer you up and say we will be rich one day)

    For you
    Bold face type covers your text
    It must have been winter

    Still frame, no dice
    Where do you get your evidence?
    Move back, stay still
    It takes a luminescent hue
    The wood, the crest
    That's weaved outside your vest
    Still frame, no dice

    Roll down the window
    I know there's a shortcut ahead
    (we can find a way to be rich)
    The long drive home is taking its toll
    We just need some rest... (oh yeah)
    (about the rich people being home sick)

    Still frame, no dice
    Where do you get your evidence?
    Move back, stay still
    It takes a luminescent hue
    The wood, the crest
    That's weaved outside your vest
    Still frame, no dice

    I think the name of the song means that the poor people should have money and the rich people shouldnt, because they dont put it to good use. so i should be the other way around.
