"One Way Mule" as written by and Daniel Johns....
Let my spirit ride on a one way mule
Blistered skin in a cold hearted pool
Distant emotion hides a concrete wall
Naked and anchored
I'll climb right back to you

Love me for my mind
'cause I'm a dangerous heart
when I've got time to kill
I'm coming back to you

Distant emotion hides a concrete wall

Do you feel
Do you feel
Do you need

Love me for my mind
'cause I'm a dangerous heart
when I've got time to kill
I'm coming back to you
Love me for my mind
'cause I'm a dangerous heart
when I've got time to kill
I'm coming back to you

Patient career of sleep in a Sunday dress
Rides my wake
Go!

    General CommentCaesium...I've been wondering the same thing....

    When he has time to commit the act of murder, or when he has extra time?

    Oh well. ::Shrug:: I guess it's one of those double entendres. I love those. :)

    General CommentI think what he means when he says " When i've got time to kill i'm comming back for you" is that when a heart is broken its just like killing someone. Sort of like he's going to get the best of them this time type deal.
    At least that's what I tihnk.

    General CommentThis lyric may have been from natalies point of view, to me hes saying that natalie came to daniel when she needed him when she had time for him, this lyric is anger she wasnt there when daniel needed her just when she needed daniel. So when it suited natalie when she could fit him in she arrived!
