american jet set
so young and cinemantic
just start the car and lets go

american jet set
we need our blood stirred, dammit
get off the floor and lets go
like plastic figurines
lay in the back and blast the tape machine

it's all that he wants
it's all that he wants
and all that he wants
is all that he wants
and all that he wants
is a minute with her

to crash the ball and take her home
to break her heart and tear her clothes
to feel alive, young and terrified

american jet set
heartsick and so dramatic
just fill the tank, i've had it
like plastic figurines
another burn-up on the airwaves

it's all that he wants
it's all that he wants
and all that he wants
is all that he wants
and all that he wants
is a minute with her

to crash the ball and take her home
to break her heart, and tear her clothes
to feel alive, young and terrified

take a car, hot-wired and drive out
this is an ugly town
and we have to get out
take a car hot-wired and drive out
this is a fucked up town
and it's freakin' me out

it's all that he wants
it's all that he wants
and all that he wants
is all that he wants
and all that he wants
is a minute with her

to crash the ball and take her home
to break her heart and tear her clothes
to feel alive, young and terrified.

    I love that lyric. When Mat Devine sings it, I get ear orgasms.<3
    Just a magnificent song by a genius band.

    General CommentKill Hannah is all about a dark and frantic desperation, a burning in one's heart that time just won't quench...sadness, anger, despair, and hope (yes, hope) all thrown into a fire together. Being alone even as a crowded world is passing you by. And this song is one of Kill Hannah's best and most frenetic. Absolutely bone-chilling.

    General Commenti think it's about a stereotypical high school jock and all he want's IS sex 'all that he wants is a minute with her', but the girl is afraid and not ready. And when the dude that gets the car and hot wires it sees this, he can't understand why the 'jock' would do that and freaks out and just wants to get away from unbelievable foolishness.

    Incredible song!

    General CommentThis song isnt about some guy who wants sex,
    it's about this boy who's young and alive
    and SO in love with this girl.
    He wants to whisk her away out of their town,
    and go whereever the highway takes them.

    it's all about risks and adrenaline

    General CommentAfter much deliberation, I've decided this is probably my favourite Kill Hannah song.
    Actually, pretty much my favourite album.

    General CommentThis song was written about Hannah, the crazy girl Mat Devine was in love with when he was younger. All he wanted to do was take her away from their simple lives, to somewhere they could be together in love.

    General CommentI don't think it's about Hannah (considering it came out four years after they broke up). But substitute another girl in, and I think you've got the gist of it.

    General Commenti think he says 'to move in with her' not 'a minute with her'
