Will I get in to chase, to match my dreams?
Summer thaws a quartered pill
Will I get in to chase, to match my dreams?
my eyes hatch a still born penny

Dead clover, dead clover, one mongoose, one cobra
Goes back before skinny boys stuffed their shirts
Dead clover, dead clover, one mongoose, one cobra
Will I get in to chase, to match my dreams?

The rat that's caught in the ribs of me will be released within the year:
in crossing states on the spade possum with custom plates and the paint rusting
like cussing saints with strange customs here.

Dead clover, dead clover, one mongoose one cobra
Goes back before skinny boys stuffed their shirts
Dead clover, dead clover, one mongoose, one cobra
Will I get in to chase, to match my dreams?

Nervous on night drives, fog or no fog
- It'll happen when he changes lanes
Nervous on night drives, fog or no fog
- It'll happen when he changes lanes

    General CommentThe bass line after the second chorus is so sick...

    General CommentNot sure exactly what this one means, but it sounds great. The "dead clover" chorus is disturbing but somehow catchy.

    General CommentI think "chase" is a reference to Chase bank. It sounds like his mocking the banality of adult life, the wondrous "dreams" of having a mature bank account. Maybe.

    General CommentSpelling-wise it is "chase" based on what this song was called in the demos.. "Chase"

    General Comment"Summer thaws a quartered pill" - related to seasonal affective disorder? Would make sense, everyone's miserable in the Winter.

    "My eyes hatch a still born penny" - this is all purposely ambiguous but eyes are generally a romantic thing, like people see their dreams with/in their eyes... so it could be that his dreams aren't giving him anything useful in a practical sense, like money.

    In general though, it's all about the atmosphere the words create. It fits in perfectly with the whole feel of the album.
