"Putting Down" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Joseph Paul Langlois and Robert Gordon Sinclair....
Held a bird's egg between her breasts
There's reasons for the road, I guess
To document the indigenous,
To paint and sketch
Paint and sketch
I'm starting to fail to be impressed.

United state of ricochet
From the boardwalk to the Appian way
The diamond files, the corporate raves
You'd practically kill
Not to be afraid
And I'm starting to choke
On the things I say.
Putting down.I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.

Browbeaten out from underneath your dress
The documented indigenous civilization
Flipped its desk
You know the rest, there is no rest
And I'm starting to fail to know what's best.

Putting down.I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.I'm putting down.
I'm putting down.

    My InterpretationJust a wild guess here: I think he is in Santa Monica California staying at "Shutters On The Beach" which is a hotel that is between the boardwalk and Appian Way. I think he is going to bed for the night after a show most likely at the House Of Blues on sunset blvd were he had planty of colorful people to document for song ideas. Also, plenty of women over there that could hold a bird's egg between thier breasts. All in all I think he is saying that he is really tired and needs to go to bed for the night.
