"Free things for poor people" as written by Daniel Watts, Alexander Bruford, Matt Gooderson, Wayne Marshall Page and Richard Vernon....
Free things for poor people, is what it said,
written on a t-shirt around her neck.
Take me to the water and watch me by the edge,
reflecting all the fireworks in my head.

Free things for poor people, that's what she said,
all the gold you're wearing, won't save you in the end.
Take me to the water and watch me by the edge,
reflecting all the fireworks in my head.
[CHORUS]
I make my way, up and down through the days,
she knocks me out, my river runs through her now.
My river runs,
my river runs through her now.
Free things for poor people, that's what it said,
written on a t-shirt around her neck.
Take me to the water and watch me by the edge,
reflecting all the fireworks in my head.

Free things for poor people, that's what she said,
all the gold you're wearing, won't save you in the end.
Now take me by the water and watch me by the edge,
reflecting all the fireworks in my head.
[CHORUS]
I make my way, up and down through the days,
she knocks me out, my river runs through her now.
My river runs,
my river runs, through her now.
Free things for poor people, that's what it said,
written on a t-shirt around her neck.
Take me to the water and watch me by the edge,
reflecting all the fireworks in my head.
[CHORUS]
I make my way, up and down through the days,
she knocks me out, my river runs through her now.
My river runs,
my river runs, through her now.
[police siren wails and helicopters hover]
My river runs.

    General CommentGreat Song. The Alex Metric remix is absolutely epic. Nothing more fun than being drunk and dancing to it with all your friends.

    My InterpretationIt might be about sex.
    A few lines in particular give me this hunch.

    "Free things for poor people..."
    Even poor people can have sex. It's one of the many natural things in this world that don't involve money (unless you're a hooker or something.)

    "She knocks me out... My river runs through her now..."
    Sounds like the guy is talking about his orgasm and... emissions during sex.

    "Reflecting all the fireworks in my head..."
    Thoughts of excitement, intensity... therefore, fireworks in my head.


    It's what it made me think of. *shrug* If it is about sex, that's a lovely way of putting it. It takes out the kinky, immature idiocy surrounding the idea of sex and highlights the beauty and excitement of making love to someone.
