"Tell It To The Volcano" as written by Charlie Brand and Rick Schaier....
You can hang on to me
But my love won't surround you
Now that you're finally gone
I am free to get on with my life

You can summon all the gods
That your black heart desires
They cannot help you 'cause they're starting fires
To burn you alive

Tell it to the volcano, from what I know you're goin' down the hole
Down you're goin' down the hole, tell it to the volcano
Save your sorry's, tell it to the volcano

A year ago today I was fallin' in love with you
I didn't know how I could tell you
You were breaking my heart, shrinking my head
I couldn't get out of my bed

Tell it to the volcano, from what I know you're goin' down the hole
Down you're goin' down the hole, tell it to the volcano
Save your sorry's, tell it to the volcano

Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya down

Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to throw away the pain on my own
You're cryin' and you're screamin'
And you're beggin' not to go

Tell it to the volcano
Down you're goin' down the hole, tell it to the volcano
Save your sorry's, tell it to the volcano

Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya
Oom, I'd like to chuck ya down

    General CommentThe singer speaks of how he used to be head-over-heels for this girl. Now he's over her, and she is the one trying to get with him. Unfortunatly for her however, he wants nothing to do with her.

    I have no idea what the Volcano thing is about. I've seen every episode of LOST, and I don't think it is a reference to that show, I may be wrong though.

    Great song anyway...

    General Commentsinger was in a relationship, they broke up, sounds like it was the girls fault since he tells her to save her sorrys. He loves his new freedom. At first I thought the song used a tribal pacific island feel, The song uses what I feel are tribal south american, specifically the amazonia region analogies to have this all play out. The song opens with panpipes which are VERY prominent and important in this region. The shrunken head reference is also a practice that is unique to this region.
    The talk of Volcanoes is essentially him telling the girl he doesn't want to hear her crap anymore and tells to just to tell it to the volcano as she falls into it.
    The line about gods is a reference all the tribal gods in that region, as they are typically viewed as violent and vengeful gods that desire human sacrifices. I think this refers to her bringing new guys in her life and treat her bad just to get his attention, I've had this happen to me many times.
    The song eventually becomes very humours when the singer decides he would like to take matters into his own hands and get rid of her himself by "chucking her" into the volcano.
    I love this song, its a perfect example of the amazing way the miniature tigers use analogies to cultures around the world.

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it's "they cannot help you" instead of "thinking i'll help you."

    i didn't mean to post this as a reply. x.x
