Take the best out of me
Kept inside your nostalgia dream
But don’t leave me with my broken arm

Well I know how much that’ll be
The price we pay for a pair in green
But my empty pockets just won’t leave me be

But the money’s no good
Your money’s no good

So go on and lead the way
With your crumbling hands
And lie awake in bed humbled
Wondering, damn,
Why you can’t raise your plans in a tired city

But the race, it won’t stop
With each day’s end
It’s not a life worth living
When you can’t talk to your friends
In this crowded city

I’ve got a big love in my heart
And peace all in my mind

Still the money’s no good

Take the best out of me
Take it as far as your eyes can see
But don’t leave me with my broken arm

This greed has left my family
With heavy hearted humility
But this drought won’t dry their soaking sleeves

‘cause the money’s no good

    General CommentI think this song is definately about marijuana. Broken arm is a metaphor for a broken bong, and he just doesnt want to be left with nothing to smoke with. "The price you pay for a pair in green" is obviously saying he wants to be high with this girl, but doesnt have money to get a new bong
