"Hit The Plane Down" as written by and Stephen Malkmus....
I'm up on a hill top where I
Keep you in sight, my little toys
I buried you because the sun
Will melt them

Got you up my sleeve
Got you up my sleeve
Got you up my sleeve
Got you up my sleeve
Got you up my sleeve

Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down

Taking over
Taking over your life

I'm taking over your scene
Ya, Ya, Ya, Ya, Ya
I would hope see the face
I would hope you see her face

Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down (taking over)

There's no survivors
There's no survivors
Don't even snow (we're not that disturbed)
Don't even snow

Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down (taking over)

There's no survivors
There's no survivors
Taking over your life
Taking over your life

I'm taking over the scene
I'm taking everything
All I wanted it all

My little trick
I wouldn't mind just a milligram up my sleeve
I've got you up my sleeve
I've Got you up my sleeve
I've got you up my sleeve

Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down

There's no survivors
Taking over your life
Taking over your life

I'm taking over the scene
I'm taking everything
I'm taking everything

I've got to melt it
I've got to melt it
I've got to melt it
I've got to melt it
I've got to melt it

I've got to melt it
I've got to melt it
I've got to melt it
I've got to melt it
I've got to melt it

Hit the plane down
Hit the plane down there's no survivors
There is no survivors

    General CommentI wouldn't mind just a milligram up my sleeve.

    Seems pretty self-explanatory to me. Fantastic song by the way.

    General CommentThis is a song that Scott Kannberg wrote, purportedly about the movie/book Alive, about the rugby team whose plane crashes on a mountaintop, and they have to resort to cannibalism to survive.

    General CommentWhy heroin? Does it have to be about heroin? As far as I know, Pavement isnt even associated with heroin. Could just as easily be about creativity in the early 90s music industry, which there is a bit more support for pavement writing about.
