Just got back from Kill Devil Falls
Draped my water logged clothes in the hall
Reach for a beer, glad that I'm here
When I realize that you're not around

Turned on some music and then the T.V.
Go through the pile of mail waiting for me
Something I spied makes me pull it aside
A letter from your hometown

How could you leave me?
You heard what I said
I'd be at the waterfall clearing my head
Soaking up nature and thinking of you
But leaving's the last thing I thought you would do
I didn't plan to stop at the bar
But Kill Devil Falls is really so far
Who knew a day would turn into a week
But I learned my lesson
And I can still remember the last one
But this time will be different
Until I do it again

Stared at the ceiling for over a day
But none of my questions are answered this way
Won't make any calls
I'll just bounce off the walls
'Til I go back to Kill Devil Falls

And I stand at the base of the mountain (Don't follow me)
And I step right up to the cliff side (Gotta learn how to leap)
And I stare straight into the future (Tell me what do you see)
This time is going to be different
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls

    General CommentQuickly becoming one of the best live jams off of Joy, Kill Devil Falls' meaning is open to interpretation and is certainly not talking about an actual location. Its most likely a metaphor for the seductive oblivion of addiction that Trey went through in past years. Kill Devil Falls probably relates to drug induced times the band went through, and shows that they are reminiscent of the past, going back and forth between wishing they could go back to those times and appreciative of the fact they they've progressed away from these times
