Put my hand on a mountain
Pulled the top right off
I made a new volcano roar
I could never do this before

Raced back down to the town below
To try to warn your mom
I made a new volcano roar
Just heard static on the intercom

"You've got to get out of the house"

Threw a rock at your window
Your brother looked to see
Hey, "I made a new volcano roar,"
How come no one believes me

Your father watched from the front porch
I put my hand to the sky
"That's where I make your daughter soar,"
He must have misunderstood me

"You've got to get out of my house"

He told me how his generation won the war
He asked me what I've done with my life so far
I didn't answer quick so he shut the door

    Lyric Correction*Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh...*

    Put my hand on a mountain
    Pulled the top right off
    I made a new volcano roar
    I could never do this before

    I raced back down to the town below
    To try to warn your mom,
    "I made a new volcano roar!"
    Just heard static on the intercom...?

    You've got to

    Get out
    Get out
    Get outta the house (x3)

    Threw a rock at your window
    Your brother looked to see
    "Hey...!"
    "I made a new volcano roar!"
    How come no one believes me?

    Your father watched from the front porch
    I put my hand to the sky
    "That's where I make your daughter soar."
    He must have misunderstood me...?

    You've got to

    Get out
    Get out
    Get outta the (my) house (x3)

    He told me how his generation won the war
    He asked me what I've done with my life so far
    I didn't answer quick and so he shut the door

    Oooooooohhhhh...

    *Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!*

    Get out
    Get out
    Get outta the house (x3)

    My InterpretationIt's about denial and being denied. Sexual, parental, youth, growth, family... all tied together.

    In dream and psychological analysis a "house" is an analogy for "family". "You've gotta get out of the house" isn't just a phrase encouraging for you to explore outside of yourself, but escaping a family in denial.

    When you look at the story being told here, he's conflicted by the denial of the family about his "making a volcano roar" (sexual bliss, orgasm) with the daughter. The relationship is denied by everyone, while he fights for his own truth. A sort of Romeo and Juliet tale.

    Yet you've got to get out (escape) the house...

    Good stuff here. ;-)

    Jupiter One is one of the few bands that really know how to twist something so simple into an elegant spiral of self-realization and interpersonal meaning.
