"Geronimo" as written by and Scott Douglas Victor/brewer Russo....
Don't want to think about it anymore
Lying curled and naked on the floor
And I don't want to hear those words you say
What were they anyway?

[Chorus]
Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
So here I go
(So here I go, so here I go)
Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
Geronimo

Don't want to get up outta bed today
It seems much harder than it was yesterday
And I don't want to hear those words you say
What were they anyway?
What were they anyway?

[Chorus]

Let's leave today
And forget everything
Can't really take this place
So what you say?

Let's leave it all behind
And don't look back
We won't rewind this time
Let's get away

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI like this song. I think it is about knowing someone is going to break up with you but you don't want to hear because you need this person more than ever.("I don't want to hear those words you say. What were they anyway") Just being so depressed (Don't want to get out of bed today. Seems much harder than it was yesterday") you just want to leave and never come back ("Let's leave today and forget everything. Can't really take this place.Let's leave it all behind and dont look back. we won't rewind this time. Let's get away")

    General CommentCAYA has a point. When I broke up with my girlfriend this was the first song that came to mind for her, and after about a week we got back togther. Her song for that was Calin.

    But yeah you wouldn't want to think about it if someone broke up with up. Just think of how bare and naked you would feel after giving you heart away. It would kill you inside like a hapachi Indian warior. (GERONIMO) And getting out of bed would just suck knowing that you won't wake up next to your lover.

    General CommentGreat song about just wanting to get away. Goes hand in hand with Walrus from the new album. This song as well as all the others is amazing on Music From High Places. They do a perfect vocal harmony live in one take! Awesome. UL and JEW have the best vocals, and Ben Gibbard is pretty good as well!

    General Commenti agree with dropout surfer. this song is totally about suicide. first of all, this guy is obviously depressed: he wants to leave it all behind, and don't look back, and forget everything.

    and it seems like he's going to jump from a building or something, because in movies and stuff (i've never heard about it in real life) when people jump from really high places they scream out "geronimo"... why? i dont know, maybe it is related with something in the book "the last of the mohoawkans" where the indian warrior geronimo appears. i dont know, i've never read the book.

    also the "here i go" parte before "geronimo" sounds like 'catch me cause here i go'. im not really sure about this last thing because my english sucks and that's what i understand. but im pretty pretty sure this is about suicide, jumping from a bridge or something... or at least wanting to .
