I went outside to catch the snow

Ice is raining
Ice is raining
Ice is raining
Ice is raining

I went outside to catch the snow

How far will I go to protect my hide?
Will I go protect my hide?

I went outside to catch the snow

Ice is raining
Ice is raining
Ice is raining
Ice is raining

I went outside to catch the snow
Will I go protect my hide?
Will I go protect my hide?

As I seal myself inside
The zippers hits me
As I stumble from my house
I reach down for the sled
And as I start to shape my weapon
A cold one hits me!

I turn around and walk back home
Turn around and walk back home
I turn around and walk back home
Turn around and walk back home

    General CommentThe drum loop in this song is a sample from the Minutemen song "It's Expected I'm Gone." Hence the title "Hurley" -- George Hurley was the drummer for the Minutemen.

    General CommentLittle interesting fact...
    When he says "Will i go protect my hide?" I dont think a lot of listeners quite understand what he means.
    Well in the British "langauge" a hide is actually a hidden shelter used to get a close view of wildfire.
    This song is just a really nostalgic little number about the guys childhood.
    Thumbs way up!

    General CommentI love this song. But I think the lyrics are slightly different.

    As I seal myself inside,
    the zippers catch my skin,
    And as I waddle towards the doorway,
    A freezer hits me
    As I stumble from my house,
    I reach down for the sled,
    And as I start to shape my weapon
    A cold one hits me!

    General Commentthis just proves how awesome pinback is and how musicians can just sing about anything and get away with it being artistic. Ex."Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon", thats a part of a radiohead song and yet, it still is very very good. Bravo

    General CommentNO! None of Pinback's songs are about anyone from Lost, all the songs you're using as evidence came out before Lost ever aired. So not only is it impossible but if you would actually listen to the lyrics you'd see it has nothing to do with a television character who's stranded on an island AT ALL.

    The song is pretty clearly about a snowball fight if you would just read what others have said/think about it/and then read the lyrics. And the third poster's comment about where the title comes is actually feasible, unlike yours. Please stop.
