i spent it all on the bag on the drag the sun comes up, the tide rolls out the trucks roll by the park still a park where children play and pick up stones anything to make them feel less alone - he's alone his mind is his own town where all his thoughts run aground they fall all over and down i spent it all on the bag on the drag the sun comes down, the tide rolls back we crawl our way back to the house we call home he holds his home in the palm of his hand and he says, and he says you are my everyone, you are my anyone you are my anytime, you are my every time you are my everywhere...anywhere...

    General Commenti know its not the real words, but it creeps me out at the end when it sounds like he says "you are my inner child" i really can't get over that

    General CommentBag and drag are referring to buying and smoking weed. The sun coming up is the youth of this person where the loneliness could be maintained, but it's not easy, and all he can do is mull over his thoughts since he doesn't have friends. Eventually the sun goes down and the tide comes in. This is his life now where it is darker, and he feels overwhelmed. His home, which is his pipe, is in his hand at the end of the day. It's the only thing that matters to him and is the only thing he can depend on.

    General Commentthis is little more than a stab in the dark, but it seems to be about a man's addiction to drugs. in the end of the song, he starts getting really fucked up. "you are my everyone..." he's become hopelessly fixated on it. that's my best guess.

    General Commentit has to be about drugs. the word "bag" is probably the best indicator, but the section "his mind is his own town where all his thoughts run aground" kind of suggests hallucinogens or something.

    General CommentIt is about addiction but I thought the "drug" he was referring to was airplane glue put into a bag and huffed. Makes sense with the "bag" and the title

    General CommentDefinitely about drub addiction. However, I don't think the "glue" part should be taken literally. The bag could relate to many different drugs. As an addict he is stuck in a rut, he is the "glue man".
