"Money For That" as written by Chad Petree, Jeremy Dawson and Tim David Kelly....
School bells ringing, 1994
Music's burning, running in my head
Gonna shout it out, in my head
How could I forget?

[Chorus]
I'd give you money for that
Is there some way I could go back?
I'd give you money for that
If there's some way, I would
How could I forget?

Little choices, seem so pointless
No one near me, ever slows me down
I was good to go, in my head
How could I forget?

[Chorus]

Pictures on written walls
All of the songs I know
It's like another time
Where did it go?
Where did it all go?

[Chorus]

    Not sure?
    The new version sounds different on that part.
    To me, at least. Could be crazy.

    My InterpretationHere is my take on the song:

    School bells ringing, 1994
    Music's burning, running in my head
    Gonna shout it out, in my head
    How could I forget?
    --------------
    He is talking about thinking back to the days when he was in school (ie younger)

    I'd give you money for that
    Is there some way I could go back?
    I'd give you money for that
    If there's some way, I would
    How could I forget?
    --------------
    Wishing that he could go back to those days and that he would give money for it to happen.

    Little choices, seem so pointless
    No one near me, ever slows me down
    I was good to go, in my head
    How could I forget?
    --------------
    Not sure about the first line, but the rest I think is referring to how when you are young you have the 'invincible' thoughts of yourself and how perfect it all was - in his head (imagination).

    Pictures on written walls
    All of the songs I know
    It's like another time
    Where did it go?
    Where did it all go?
    --------------
    This part is a bit foggy for me, but I am assuming its more about remembering the past and him wondering where it all went.


    Overall I would say it is a song about wishing you could go back to the simpler time when you were younger.

    General Commentabout the line "little choices seem so pointless" i think he is saying that the little things that seem unimportant can have a big impact on your life

    General CommentHe means he'd give money to go back to the time period where all he cared about was music. After that time period, things became complicated.

    My InterpretationDoes anyone else think that 1994 could be a possible Cobain allusion? Or am I just getting this out of nowhere?
