"Chase that Feeling" as written by William C. Brown Iii, Dale Ossman Warren, John Gary Williams, Matthew David Lambert, Barry Francis and Daniel Smith....
She’s young, lithe and homely, wise by no means
Known one guy she’s for his eyes and only
He’s a lying phony, leaves crying, lonely
Separates the pain by staying high and though she
Might just O.D. high price to go free
This ain't living, listen it’s dying slowly
It’s got a hold on me, she can chase that feeling
It’s got a hold on me, don’t chase that feeling

Sometimes I feel we strive for a life of apathy
Callous deeds, other mindless acts of greed
Ain't jack for free, I think they’d try a tax to breathe
It’s like we fight to remind us that we bleed
I take flight in the night from lack of sleep
Cause peace of minds the only time that we’re free
It’s got a hold on me, and I’m a chase that feeling
It’s got a hold on me, we all chase that feeling

It’s like they try to build you up to watch it all collapse
You try climb out the pit, they’ll try claw you back
Like back in the factory packing the shelves
It was hell cos the foreman was always harassing me
Like ‘How’s your little old music thing going?
Now I’m like ‘How’s your bitter old loser shit going?
And I’m right, it’s got a hold on me, and I’m a chase that feeling
It’s got a hold on me, I’m a chase that feeling like

And I’m a chase that feeling
Take that pain and replace that feeling
And I’m a take that healing then
Stand so tall they’ll have to raise that ceiling man

From a young age I was making my mark, chasing my start
Forever ain't enough when your state of the art
Fuck the haters that had said I’d never make it this far
It’s the pavers that I’d tread to dedicate to my craft
I’ve tailored every thread to bear the shape of my heart
Treating every breath as my first and day as my last
It’s got a hold on me, I still chase that feeling
It’s got a hold on me, yeah I still chase that feeling

I ride the rails of a vinyl track
Fall into a trance and there ain't no climbing back
Sit and lose myself in all the hidden loops
They’re like forbidden fruits, I’m like can I get a bite of that?
Gin and juice, I get loose and I write a track
Shivers down my spine, feeling more like a spinal tap
It’s got a hold on me, and I’m a chase that feeling
It’s got a hold on me, I’m a chase that feeling like

And I’m a chase that feeling
Take that pain and replace that feeling
And I’m a take that healing then
Stand so tall they’ll have to raise that ceiling man

At start of the summer
I’m a come to life and have the heart of a hummingbird
And I can hear the drummer
She’s so ugly but I’m so in love with her
Wake up, roll out of bed, throw on some roll-on
Roll up to the studio
It’s got a hold on me, and I’m a chase that feeling
Chase that feeling

    General Commentcan't believe there is only one comment.
    hilltop are great! and this song is no exception
    aussie hip hop at its finest.
    not quite sure of the meaning exactly, but i think it is just 'that feeling' we all know, love and chase.

    General CommentThe song's message is one of their profound passion for music, specifically their music. Also they seem to touch on themes of how it is that music has positively effected them and their values compared to individuals who don't have music in their lives.

    Or it might all just be an extended metaphor about hunting kangaroos. It's hard to tell.

    General CommentI think it's about the love, the passion - Wanting something so bad that you're willing to go through hell to inch closer to it.

    He's talking about how the pursuit of music made all the crap he had to go through just melt away - It's a story about appreciating the journey, not just the destination.

    Great track.

    General CommentThere's a few meanings in this song, but I think one of the main meanings is drugs, and chasing the "high" feeling.
