"More Or Less" as written by and Conner/lanegan/conner....
Now that we've run this road so many times
Tonight it will not take us home
Gonna go to that deep river
Where the water's moving slow

Feels like there's nothing to explain
(Nothing left to hear)
One more or less it's all the same
Now that it's feeling so much colder
(Coming back again)
Just be glad that it's all over

Now that we've closed our eyes so many times
Tonight I cannot see a thing
Gonna go to that deep river
Where the water's moving slow

Feels like there's nothing to explain
(Nothing left to hear)
And now you know just who to blame
For why you're feeling so much colder
(Coming back again)
Just be glad that it's all over
Gonna go to that deep river

    General CommentHow is it that these guys did not break through to mainstream?

    They're so friggin amazing..

    If you've heard this song, you know what I'm saying too,
    From the trippy intro to how everything slows down with the lyrics, the way Lanegan sings in his tired voice, .. these guys truly are amazing, I've always compared them to Nirvana meets the Grateful Dead..

    General Commenti agree that the screaming trees are really amazing.
    this song reminds me of suicide...and it's effects on a relationship
    "Now that we've run this road so many times
    Tonight it will not take us home" i think this line is in reference to a repetitive event that finally pushes the narrator to the brink of his existence, to finally kill him, hence, the same path we've been down so many times will not take us to the place it usually does.
    "Gonna go to that deep river
    Where the water's moving slow" is a reference to the actual suicide, possibly a drowning or jumping off of a bridge...possibly a meaningful place for the narrator to die because it holds memories
    "Feels like there's nothing to explain
    nothing left to hear
    One more or less it's all the same" the lyrics posted are wrong here...it's nothing left to hear rather than nothing left hear. the narrator is saying to the other person that nothing he could make his decision easier to understand, so there is nothing left for that person to hear. and one more or less it's all the same...is the narrator's way of saying his death doesn't matter. one more or less person in the world, it doesn't change anything.
    "Now that it's feeling so much colder
    (Coming back again)
    Just be glad that it's all over" the first two lines can either be a reference to how cold the river is and it's moving tides (because rivers do rise and fall on their banks and they do have strong currents, like the undertow of the ocean). or it could be a reference to how the narrator/ his relationship already feels cold and dead. The last line, just be glad that it's all over, is the narrator saying just be glad that i'm gone, i won't be around to bother you anymore.
    "Now that we've closed our eyes so many times
    Tonight I cannot see a thing" perhaps a reference to some kind of mutual self-medication within the relationship...like saying, now that we've ignored our future for so long, i can't see having one. or it could be a reference to getting so fixated on his problems that he can only see them and is blind to anything good, he can't even see the possibility that something good will happen.

    though, it might just be about a break from a dysfunctional relationship, and i complicated things.
