don't buy dope from the man you don't know
i don't know you won't
don't get stuck in his pickup truck
in arms reach, front seat
man, you're outta luck

flush it downstream
before its found, drowned, swimming in your blood stream
if you must, crush it up into dust
if you must cut it up then lie down

but i won't let you tell me
what i can't do
you'll try to scare me
but you're never gonna catch me
so don't you tell me how to run that race

you said don't back down in your wedding gown
don't make a sound, you never made a sound
don't chime in with your oppinion
you dont need to object, man, you're such a wreck

rush to find a pulse before
you're deep in the dirt
crushed by a cross like
jumping out of a moving train
coming down is such a pain

but i won't let you tell me
what i can't do
you'll try to scare me
but you're never gonna catch me
so don't you tell me how to run that race

    General CommentHow ironical. I'm on mushrooms right now, but if I may make a couple suggestions as to the correct lyrics:

    FLUSH IT [or FLUSHING maybe?] downstream before it's found,
    drowned, swimming in your bloodstream.

    and then

    Rush to find A PULSE before
    You're deep in the dirt
    Crushed by a cross LIKE
    Jumping out of a moving train
    Coming down is such a pain.


    This song is fucking ace! Can't wait to hear the new record.

    General Commentah, those corrections make more sense, thanks.

    but yeah man, i like this more than anything i've heard from arm's way, though i dont think it's as good as some of the stuff on return to the sea. still, it makes me really excited about the new album.

    General Commenti love this song and i'm super excited for vapours.
    the epic-ness of arm's way was great but maybe this lightness can be good too.

    General CommentThe cover of this album is really funny to me. Nick is ridiculous.


    I think this song is about being caught in between friendship and drugs. It sounds like someone close to him has fallen head first into drugs and while he still has an open ear to this friend, he knows it's just the drugs talking.
