"Deep Six" as written by Matthew Good and Dave Genn....
Deep Six come to bed,
Good night and take care
Who knows maybe our luck will change
People live in the rain
Who knows maybe our luck will change

And I don't know, I don't know
I don't know where you think you are,
I don't know pretend you know
I don't know where you think you are
And I don't know, I don't know
I don't know where you think you are

Big crash, funny car
It's where you been, where you are
Think fast and kill what you cannot change
Still though this is fun
Find a box when I'm done
Who knows maybe my luck will change


Deep Six come to bed,
It's midnight everywhere
Who knows, who knows
People live in the rain
Who knows maybe our luck will change
Maybe our luck will change

    General CommentI heard this song was inspired by a Noel Gallager comment on how rock n roll shouldn't be about anything like social issues. I don't understand a word of it though.

    General CommentThe "Deep Six" refers to a grave being six feet underground.

    One of my all time favorite MGB songs.

    General CommentHaha, that's funny. All Matt does is sing about social issues. But it's all fabulous! I don't understand a lot either, but it's such a great song. The chorus gets me every time.

    General CommentI don't know if what I'm saying makes any sense or if it bares any relevance to the Noel Gallagher idea, but anyway...

    I think Matt is criticizing Noel's theory by saying that if Rock music wasn't about anything important, what the fuck are the rock stars doing out there?

    "Deep Six/Come to bare, good night and take care/who knows, maybe our luck could change"
    This part makes me think that rock stars just come into the business thinking that they can make it big by becoming exposed, making money and then leaving.

    "People live in the rain"
    Most people end up getting bored with life, but who knows...maybe our luck could change.

    "I don't know where you think you are"
    You think this is some kind of game you're playing?

    "Big crash, funny car, is where you've been, where you are/Think fast, and kill what you cannot change"
    You've messed up and have become the laughing stock, so now is your time to fight back at the people to get back into the spotlight.

    "Still though, this is fun/ find a box when I'm done/ who knows, maybe my luck could change"
    You fell ass-backwards into a pit of money and now it's time to walk away with it.

    My InterpretationGoing with this whole Noel Gallager thing, I think the song jumps between making a point, sarcastic commentary, and angry "what the hell are you thinking" kind of mentality.
    Basically its saying everyone should be aware and responsible for the world and if you have a voice and can impact people do it. We're all gunna die anyway why not make your life mean something?

    So to me this is what I interpret the song as:

    The first verse refers to the inevitability of death and the weight that has on people. However I think the phrase "Come to bare" is a play on words. Come to bear (being a used phrase) meaning holding a heavy weight/realization and come to bare being a more of a exposure idea. So 'bare' either refers to exposing ones soul, or the naked truth of death while still conveying the heft that your days are numbered. Then sarcastically "maybe our luck will change", obviously you'll die everyone does, all over the world, in terrible conditions.

    Polyurethane is a highly flammable building/coating/gluing material. Modern society is built to burn and just because "people live in the rain" doesnt mean they wont feel the heat --> Ignorance doesnt stop destruction. Turning a blind eye for whats comfortable to the audience is ridiculous.

    The chorus is basically frustration with people's (Noel's) disconnect from the world. From world issues, from what runs our countries and what destroys them. What happy land filled with unicorns are you in that you think it doesn't effect you? Wise up and at least try to realize whats going on in your actual world.

    Big crash --> any tragedy/accident Funny car --> what people fixate on. They detach from the humanity of the situation and focus on something fantastical that's easier to swallow.
    Is where you been where you are? --> Are you so narrow sighted? Fame got to you? Are you so accustomed to privilege you can't notice suffering?
    Think fast... ---> be the change. do something. OR alternatively a stab at war mentality; if you cant beat them shoot em

    Still though this is fun find a box when im done --> referring to being an empty (non issue) songwriter is fun. being ignorant is fun/carefree. when your done with life you hop in a coffin and there you go. no impact. but hey, maybe our luck will change!

    You have one life. If you have the forum to make a difference why waste it. Its easy to be ignorant in this society and only care about yourself but its not socially responsible to ignore the world around you. "I don't know where you think you are" but this world isnt just some champagne supernova of high day dreams.
