Woke up in another lifetime
It's a shame it's just not right now
Dreaming of the coast of Carolina
Dreaming all the ways that you will smile

Come down, come quickly
Look at the lights in the big city
Sewers smoking what the hell
Is it toxic I can't tell
When they wake up twist and turn
Feel my insides bubble and burn
Constant conversations with my self
Goddamn this isn't fair

Turn it up, turn it up
You know
Yeah you know
Yeah
I said turn it up, turn it up
You know
Yeah you know
Yeah

I can see you yes I can
I can feel you holding my hand
Left at first and down to third
I swear my heart will burst
Looking for a place to go
Keep on moving fast and slow
As the crowds follow my path
I know this is going to last

Turn it up, turn it up
You know
Yeah you know
Yeah
I said turn it up, turn it up
You know
Yeah you know
Yeah

    General Comment:I'm really glad I found this song so early, I've been listening to it many times and its one of my new favorite songs which is saying a lot. As for meaning, its a kid whos a little mess up and confused and is with someone special while on a trip in Carolina. A least that's what I picture.

    General Comment:"Left at first and down to third"
    Do you think he's referring to the "running the bases" system of varying sexual encounters?
    Left at first base is literal, as a baseball player would turn left for second base, and then 'down to third' would be an allegory, perhaps as 'going down' would be third 'base' sexually?
    Must I be more explicit? Am I the only one who thinks this?
    What else could it be?
