"Gold Skull" as written by Charlie Brand and Rick Schaier....
Think I'll stay home and chill out here tonight
I'm turning off my cell phone
I was drawn in the sky as a sun with sunglasses on
I need to take a break

I watch my mind go
Down in the smoke
I cant look
I watch it's eyes glow
Through my window
I can't say
Neon gold skull

Found myself alone and on your couch last night
in a black hole of misery
I was drawn in the sky as a sun with sunglasses on
I need to take a break

    General Commentloveeee the new song. The collaboration with Alan Palomo is different from their usual stuff, but works perfectly.

    Am I the only one who heard this in the chorus though?
    "I watched my mind go down in the smoke and I can't look"
    maybe not...

    Can't wait for the new album! its definitely going to be one of the best summer albums.

    General Commentmillyme!
    it may be that. it's really hard to tell though. i had to listen to it for ages before i got 'cannon'

    another thing, where it says "i will shine in the sky as the sun with sunglasses / and i need to take a break" really bothers me. the tense switches from future to present. i think it could be "i'm a shrine in the sky." that would fix the tense thing.

    but i'm not going to change anything yet.

    General CommentI think it is...
    "I'm as strung in the sky as a sun with sunglasses and I need to take a break"

    "I watched my mind go down into smoke, and I can't look (Look away look away look away)"

    I think the song is about getting high... "Gold skull" makes me thing of the Steely Dan song "Glamour Profession" with it's line, "Kids will pay a quarter just to shine the silver bowl."

    General CommentOkay, I changed it to "and I can't look," but I don't know what to change the "I will shine" part to. It doesn't really sound like "strung" to me. But who knows.

    General CommentI definitely think this song is about getting high. Just the whole overall chill factor to it makes me believe so. Amazing song though, it's one of my favorites by them.(:

    Lyric Correctionthere are a bunch of errors in these lyrics-
    these are the lyrics from the CD insert:

    Think I'll stay home and chill out here tonight
    I'm turning off my cell phone
    I was drawn in the sky as a sun with sunglasses on
    I need to take a break

    I watch my mind go
    Down in the smoke
    I cant look
    I watch it's eyes glow
    Through my window
    I can't say
    Neon gold skull

    Found myself alone and on your couch last night
    in a black hole of misery
    I was drawn in the sky as a sun with sunglasses on
    I need to take a break
