if i was a salesman I'd write for the stars
but I'd rather give nothing and give it from the heart

yeah, after the Gold Rush didn't think I'd be alone
so alone

Eureka, eureka, eureka I've struck Gold

its tough being copper when all your friends are gold
you still hold a value just not the one they want

after the Gold Rush I thought I'd be someone

Eureka, eureka, eureka I've struck Gold
Eureka, eureka, eureka this is gold

Eureka, I've struck Gold
Now I just have to follow you down that hole

after the Gold Rush, didn't think I'd be alone
yeah, after the Gold Rush, I thought I'd be someone
after the Gold Rush, didn't think I'd be alone
yeah, after the Gold Rush, I thought I'd be someone
after the Gold Rush, didn't think I'd be alone
yeah, after the Gold Rush, I thought I'd be someone

    My InterpretationI feel like Ace is writing about TEN right here, how the "scene" became so cluttered with so many rising stars in his genre, where everyone started to sound the same and hitting it big.

    "its tough being copper when all your friends are gold
    you still hold a value just not the one they want"

    This makes me think of all the other bands on DriveThru who were making it big and making it "gold" where as TEN was being overshadowed by the other bands on the roster at the time. '

    "after the Gold Rush, I thought I'd be someone"

    I think this refers to Ace's other projects that he tried doing, including this one to strike "gold" After the bands who made it big off of pop punk were gone, he was expecting to make it big without all of them around.
