Have you ever felt that something,
you know that something that keeps you sane?
and you can't explain why
But you know it's what's left inside you
and I know that it's that something
you know that something that keeps me sane
and I can't explain why when it's all I have I have left to hold onto
And when I say It's everything
from my highest hopes to my dumbest schemes
you'll never know what it means to me.
I'm just a reason away, from that something that

    General CommentTo me this song can be about whatever it is that keeps you sane. To me, and I think to the writer as well (im going to have to dispute the lyrics here for a sec) Marijuana keeps me sane, now lets not jump to conclusions about how wrong I am, but I believe hes saying weed keeps him sane and its his "reason to wait" hes not a reason away from smoking a joing, he has a reason to wait.... for anything, because he smoked a joint... or 2...

    General Commentjoint* not joing sorry

    well its always been about weed to me, even if the words do sometimes seem like hes saying hes a reason away, a lot of times its impossible that there saying that, they have to be saying a reason to wait, and i dunno about you guys but for me weed is the only reason ill fucking wait or sit stilll through anything.

    General CommentIt's about that one thing you can't live without, that 'keeps you sane'. Whether it be drugs, music, a girl, your cat, your pillow whatever it is. This song is about holding on to that one 'thing' and never letting it go. It's that thing you love, thats always there for you. And by the way, I just fucking love how this song starts off; magnificent intro.

    General CommentThis song is just about that thing that you love, the one thing that keeps you going, keeps you sane.

    Aside from that, this is my favorite Less Than Jake song. I'm serious. Even though it doesn't feature much of the Ska section, it's still a really awesome song.
