I'm sending you this photograph
Of me in my new car
But I hate to say I miss you
'Cause you don't need me anymore
You politely say, "I miss you"
But we know you don't mean that anymore
Like when the doctor thought he caught you
Then you weaseled through the door
Through the door of consciousness
San Francisco
Oh you think it's over
Oh you think it's over to need
Someone who smokes pot in the subway
Pot in the subway, to me
Oh, Destructo, you're so destructive
Oh, you're so destructive to me

No destruction in the waking hour
No destruction in the waking wind
No destruction in the waking hour
There's no corruption in the waking wind

I'm talking to my grandma who lost her arms in the war
The aliens and armory that bombed her cigar store
Now you think that I don't know but I know you to know quite well
That I caught you sipping milkshakes in the parlor of the hotel
There's no need to be an asshole, you're not in Brooklyn anymore
You may take what you are given but you leave it on the floor
And I know they're gonna try to take my big mouse
Take the panels off my greenhouse
Oh, but the door of consciousness isn't open anymore
Oh you think it's over, oh, you think it's over to me
Someone who smokes pot in the subway
Pot in the subway with me
Oh Destructo, you're so destructive
Oh, you're so destructive to me

No destruction in the waking hour
No destruction in the waking wind
There's no destruction in the waking hour
There's no corruption on the mountain hour
No destruction in the waking hour
No destruction in the waking wind

    General CommentThis is a very good song. The music is laid back and smooth and the way the words are sung are perfect and a bit unpredictable at times. The lyrics seem to just be a loose attempt to capture being in your early 20s, ADD-afflicted and trying to keep yourself and your friends on a positive vibe through the night, but aware that it could go bad at anytime.

    MemoryLast year I left home to go to a college for hours away. Listening to this song reminds me of my best friend who used to live four minutes away from me. Since I started school we've grown apart and have both picked up our (un)healthy habits to help us cope with the situation. Similarly, we both have picked up our drug usage. Also, I just got a new car, and my friend's grandma has had some bad stuff happen to her. Memories in SF...
