She leaves me with jellylegs
Where did all my good luck get to?
We're curled up like sleeping kittens on the floor
Stowed aboard your big green boat

She took aim with a turned back
Blew holes in me with cold silence
Then a science project volcano erupts inside me
Filling me with flat champagne

Stretched out like a rubber band
From one planet to the next
You were dancing with your grandfather that lonely night
I guess ill meet you in the afterlife

She leaves with jellylegs
Where did all my good luck get to
Like a lonely kitten, sinking, drowning in the harbor
I walked the plank your big green boat


Stretched out like a rubber band
From one planet to the next
You were dancing with your grandfather that lonely night
I guess I`ll meet you in the afterlife

I guess I`ll meet you in the afterlife

    General Commentfirst comment on an epic song! A hard one to nut out but I'd say it's about someone dying, or perhaps himself dying... maybe being killed by someone; "blew holes in me with cold silence"???

    General CommentI think it's about liking a girl, but she is unresponsive to the boy's advances.
    'blew holes in me with cold silence'
    It makes him nervous giving him jelly legs that stretch out like a rubber band.

    Also the girl is in a sexual relationship with her grandfather.
    ...well I'm unsure about that part.

    General Commenta couple of the lyrics are wrong. nothing to write home about though
    in the booklet its "pea green boat" not "big green boat"
    and its "You went hunting with your grandfather that lonely night"

    i think this song is about a guy who likes a girl but is too nervous to talk to her
    "She leaves me with jellylegs"
    and she doesn't notice him at all
    "She took aim with a turned back"
    and it hurts him
    "Blew holes in me with cold silence"
    "Then a science project volcano erupts inside me
    Filling me with flat champagne"
    and I'm not sure but i think she was accidentally shot by her grandfather in the end
    "You went hunting with your grandfather that lonely night"

    "Front man, Johnny Mackay describes the track as ‘a post-traumatic heartbreak song about my ex-girlfriend dying in a bizarre hunting accident with her Grandfather.’"
