"Peaches" as written by Jeffrey Jacob Mendel and Angela Mattson....
I've been working on my knees baby it's alright
Everybody got disease maybe it's alright

You can steal from me baby that's just fine
You can say it's free baby that's alright

Working on a feeling
Breaking down the ceiling
Digging up a deep end
Freezing on the beaches
Reaching for the sweetest, sweetest peaches

We won't live too long
So let's love for one song
The lion won't lay down
When the holy man's in town

You've been drinking all week baby that's alright
You've been stepping on me baby it's alright

You've been tearing me apart in the dead of night
I'll be raising my hands when the lighting strikes

Working on a feeling
Breaking down the ceiling
Digging up a deep end
Freezing on the beaches
Reaching for the sweetest, sweetest peaches

We won't live too long
So let's love for one song
The lion won't lay down
When the holy man's in town

Working on a feeling
Breaking down the ceiling
Digging up a deep end
Freezing on the beaches
Reaching for the sweetest, sweetest peaches

We won't live too long
So let's love for one song
The lion won't lay down
When the holy man's in town

Working on a feeling
Breaking down the ceiling
Digging up a deep end
Freezing on the beaches
Reaching for the sweetest, sweetest peaches

    Song MeaningProstitute and John, or two people in self-destructive situations or dire straits. But they acknowledge they are messed up, and accept each other. They decide to take the pleasures of life that they can, together, while they have the chance.

    In a nutshell, helping each other out despite their problems and situations. Funnily, the music video makes it sound like a straight love song without hinting at the darker side.

    I think the Holy Man and Lion bit means their appetites (for sex, drugs, etc.) come through despite their best intentions. At least they can genuinely show love for a short while.

    Not sure what "I'll be raising my hands when the lightning strikes" refers to...possibly an intention of suicide if the opportunity arises?
