    General Commentawesome song, but I don`t have a clue what`s the meaning :|
    my first thought was quite weird - I thought about this machines for kids that are in front of the shops, you put some money and you ride it :P
    the begining is just unbeliveble. love it

    General Commentgotta love that intro riff. Dunno what its about maybe a freeloader trying to ride for free who pisses everyone off? Doesn't seem like something kyuss would right about though...

    General Commentmmmm I´m pretty sure there´s a part where the line is "if you wanna try to turn my knees" or something like this... anyway this song is badass. To me, this song is about rebelling to somebody or something... I mean, all of us have always somebody trying to ride for free, trying to turn our knees in order to be superior or just trrying our personal needs... this song is kind of a middle finger to those persons... Dont try my needs or that is the same I do to you fukr.
    In the other hand... a more simple explanation fits too, something like a user trying to defend his/her portion of drug. Johnny, please get your own part of sunshine.. haha. Personally, I think my first explanation is better..

    General CommentI think it's the drugs talking to him (John Garcia).
    Just like when your bed is "calling" you when you're exhausted or when your fridge says "open me! open me now!" when you're extremely hungry!
    Doing drugs is like a rodeo: you think you can handle the bull and before you know it his horns are up your ass!
    They (the drugs) are honest: "you ride me for free, I'll "ride" you for nothing!... and it'll be a fucking rodeo".

    General CommentI absolutely love the guitar intro here and the chugging bass throughout.

    General CommentThe beginning is basically a simple 'canon'. I love this track.
