"Volcano" as written by and Christopher Weldon/dederer Ballew....
Under the island, middle of a mountain
There is a big bad, boomin' system
Blowin' speakers,woofers and tweeters
Amplifiers, melted wires
The parties exploded, the core is corroded
Under ground, the Puget Sound
'Cause a shiftin', and a drifin'
Big black boom box, stuck in the hot rock
It's in there flowin', it's in there growin'
You don't believe me, that this scenery
Could be a cold blooded killer

It's gonna blow... Volcano
It's gonna blow... Volcano
It's gonna blow... Volcano

Now the island is shiftin', the plates are liftin'
The core is creamy, docile and dreamy
Stopped up and steamy
Happy campers, poop in there pampers
When the mountain, becomes a fountain
Of white hot lava, molten magna
Super sonic, plate techtonics
Stereo phonic, lava and tonic
The boom is bionic
Sony shut down, magnavox meltdown
Ballistic breakdown
Hi-fi heatwave, lo-fi lava cave
That sulfur smells, Mt. St. Helens
Pompeii was yellin',

It's gonna blow... Volcano
It's gonna blow... Volcano
It's gonna blow... Volcano
It's gonna blow... Volcano

    General Commentits definitely not about sex. its really only about a new speaker or stereo. PUSA songs are usually not any deeper than you think. "Sony shut down... Magnavox meltdown" reference to audio equipment? i think so. kind of like the system is underground at a party and its too loud that it is blowing either itself up or it causing volcanoes to erupt. "Under the island... middle of a mountain / There is a big bad... boomin' system / Blowin' speakers... woofers and tweeters"

    General CommentHaha I dunno if its about sex, allthough you make a good case. Good song either way, I'm suprised its one of their more lesser known songs.

    General Commenti think that it's about mt. rainier (a volcano near seattle) which would make sense cuz they are from seattle. and mt st hellens is a volcano near portland that blew up sulfur gas and stuff in 1980.

    General Commentlike most Presidents' songs it seems real silly on the outside but opens itself up to many a perverted interpretation.. I think there's deftly an undercurrent of sex going on here. The impending eruption of a volcano makes for a good comparison to the tension and anticipation of "getting it on"

    although it does bug me that words like magma, tectonics, and stereophonic aren't spelled right. argh. fix 'em!!! (please?)

    General CommentHaha! The more you think about it the more it fits!

    Blimey, and I just thought they were comparing music to elemental power. :S

    General Commentcmon guys. its just about a volcano, Mt. Saint Helens a mountain in Washington, about 40 miles away from seattle, their hometown, that erupted. and its just a kind of humorous interpretation of it. nothing sexual at all

    General Commenti kinda thought it was about him getting a big new stereo system, sometimes you dont have to read to deep, and i think these guys put the innuendo in there on purpose be cause they just like to write silly songs.

    General CommentIt could just be relating music and the eps and flows of that to the randomness of a volcano - I agree with AirCooled... its normally simple.

    General Commentok, this song is about sex more than peaches is. a "fountain of white hot lava"? wonder what that could be! "It's in there growin" there's another one! they certain parts of the female anatomy (like a female named Helen) sometimes don't have the most pleasant of odors, perhaps like sulfur. Well not sulfur, but sulfur smells, and so does...that. "The Island is shiftin, the plates are liftin, the core is creamy, docile and dreamy" she took her clothes off, to reveal her soft center. He is so wowed that he almost craps his pants.
