i pulled over for a feedbag
i thought of you, it wasn't bad
you had direction and drive
and you arrived at closing time
to find they wiped down the bar
and they built you a bed
laid your head to rest and left you try and true again

you maybe proud then as it was always wishful thought
I would imagine you off, maybe I'd see you again
we could sit down and have a moment
and talk about your suicide
and I would put away your death
if you could put away the dope

and all our enemies,
well there's no time for you to know them
any crooked mind disease but
hopeless fools they will be missing you

I pulled over for nostalgia
I thought of suffering the joke
no one delivered the punchline
no resolution this year
I couldn't sharpen the view
and it's still drawn to you
waiting on the new but then this story has no end
as we continue driving

    General Commenti think it starts with "I pulled over for a feedbag" instead of teabag :)
    I think they arrive at a Truckstop and Joey thinks someone who commited suicide. Its too complicated to guess what it means exactly when you dont know the story. Then he is telling his bandmates about his thoughts and Joey thinks they will make jokes about this "i pulled over for nostalgia, i thought of suffering the joke..." but they avoid a solution, they simple continue driving
    Amazing lyrics

    General Commentit is feed bag. its also "tried and true," and "wishful thought."
    I don't think the story is complicated at all. He comes to a place that meant something to him and his friend who killed himself. He allows himself to imagine what it would be like if his friend was still there, what they could change and how proud he would be of his loved one. The joke he is suffering is playing that game, wishing he could change the past, but he realizes that will bring him nowhere. So with his thoughts still lingering on his friend, he leaves. All there is left to do is keep driving.

    General CommentI don't think it's about someone that killed themselves, I think it's about him trying to convince someone they're headed down the wrong path("we could sit down and have a moment and talk about your suicide and i would put away your death if you could put away the dope") As in, he would quit trying to convince the guy he's killing himself if he would quit doing drugs. The nostalgia part is about looking back and realizing he couldn't change him and he either a)died or b)never changed.

    General Commenti THINK THIS IS A VERY GOOD AND JUST AWSOME COMPOSITION. TO ME I FEEL HE WAS WRITTING IT TO AN EX-DRUG ADDICT WHO HE CARED ABOUT DEEPLY BUT COULDN'T BE THERE TO HELP OUT DURING THIEIR ROUGH TIMES BECAUSETHER DRUGS DIVIDED THEM. ALSO jOEY GIVES ME THE IMPRESSION TAHT HE IS A RECOVERING ADDIC TO SOMETIME AND i AM BEING FACED WITH DRUG PROBLEMS TOO.

    General Commenti think he is talking about derrick in this part of the song how he left the band unfortunately he did actually commit suicide

    " we could sit down and have a moment and talk about your suicide and i would put away your death if you could put away the dope"

    General CommentI thought the song was about Derrick too, but the dates don't match up. this song was released in 2000, Derrick didn't die until 2005
