"Plane Crash" as written by and Rob Derhak Chuck Garvey....
Up in the sky
It's a bird,
It's a plane
Yea, it's a plane.
I'm not afraid to fly,
I'm not afraid,
Yea, I guess I'm afraid.
Fear is a good thing,
It teaches us humility,
And it can keep us sane.
So I'll fly high if I have to,
If I could, I'd take the train.

Livin' away from home on the road all the time ah,
All the time
I've been up and down and back and forth,
No reason or rhyme, yea you guessed right.
Makes a grown man confront his fears,
Consider options, he'd normally decline.
I'm gonna find my ticket to fly,
I'm gonna fly, I'm gonna fly-high

[Chorus]
Strap me in, tie down,
and roll me a bone
I'm gettin on an airplane,
and I'm flyin home
Strap me in, tie down,
I'm learning to fly
Travel cross the country,
I get too fuckin high
(Too fuckin high)
I don't want to die
(Too fuckin high)
Too fuckin high
(Too fuckin high)
Too fuckin high
(Too fuckin high)
Yeah

Yeah, they fly so high, 20, 30 thousand,
That's pretty high
When they take off,
my chest sinks,
my ears pop,
I pray, I lie
I think about the network news that tortured myself,
And to pass the time,
I hear tell my seat cushion is a floation device,
Pray to god they ain't lyin'

[Chorus]

(Jam)
(Too fuckin high)
I don't want to die
(Too fuckin high)
Too fuckin high
(Too fuckin high)
Too fuckin high
(Too fuckin high)
Too fuckin high high high
Yeah

    General Commentthis is a great song, i have the live version of this song with OAR. they're one of those jam bands u really wanna see live. i think this song is about weed, cuz "Strap me in tie me down And roll me a bone" means rolling a joint and obviously the chorus "too fucking high"

    General CommentPlane Crash is how the guys summarize how they toured. Rob is a pussy and can't fly so they were forced to tour by R/V and like mobladimoblada said sedation is a good way to make a long trip seem to fly by. This years moe.down ended on Sunday night with a Plane Crash opener and ended the second set of Sunday with plane crash. go get all the sets from Moe.down 5 its so worth it!!

    General Commentok you all are fucking retarded this song is about how the lead singer is afraid of flying not about getting high you should go kill yourself ghostchild85 cause if you knew anything about moe you'd know that Plane Crash is about how he hates flying and not getting high, hense the name of the song. yah retard.

    General CommentMoeIsSweet...you are dumb. The majority of the song is about a fear to fly. But he mixes it up and throws in metaphors for getting High.

    Strap me in tie me down
    And roll me a bone
    I'm gettin' on an airplane
    And I'm flying home
    Strap me in tie me down
    I'm learning to fly
    Drivin' 'cross the country
    I get too fucking high

    "I'm getting on an airplane" symbolizing the take-off, like the first few hits of weed. Then he's flying high, "too fucking high"

    I mean "Oh no MOE can't smoke weed! THIS SONG CANT BE ABOUT GETTING HIGH" cuz Bonaroo never has hundreds of thousands of fans smoking weed. EVER.

    Learn to read more than just on the surface.

    UH FUCKING BUSH LOVERS

    General CommentMan, I love moe. AND I love getting high.(Putting the two together is just nirvana). Can't we all just get along?.........Know what really pisses me off? When people spell moe. like Moe MOE Moe. ect. Get it right, its not that hard! Rolling Stone just did a review of their newest cd (The Contch) and spelt it Moe the entire time...such disrespect...

    General Commentit could be about fucking the gutarists mother for any of you know about. I'm sure alot of you on here write music and agree that just about every song has some special meaning held to the writers knowledge only. But i'm sure the guys of moe. burn one down on occasion. they are musicians and most musicians do. good song regardless of the meaning though.
