"Hotcha Girls" as written by and Isaac Brock....
Smells like autumn, smells like leaves
You don't know that you'll rust and not belong so much
And then get, left alone
Suck it up, take a ride and take a walk
And don't you know that old folks' homes smell so much, like my own

The hotcha girls at the palisades
Dime store keets, pretty birds, pretty mouths
Mama's little truck stop rose, her dancy feet her happy laugh
We were dropping dimes on the ponies in the cul-de-sac,
Casting shadows throwing sparks.
(The mail came from miles away
The postal man is always late, and we wait)
We left our teeth marks on the barrel of the gun
The clipper ship across your chest
(Glass eyes and wooden teeth, the engine rusted in deep, deep sleep
It waits, to awake)
Turns out the pony only had one trick, a wink for the truck stop boys
(Tight lipped with a big ol' mouth,
The government workers all headed south while it rained)
They learned it all from the Polaroids
(Outside with the wooden teeth, the engine rusted in disbelief, away)

Smells like autumn, smells like leaves
You don't know that you'll rust and not belong so much
And then get, left alone
Suck it up, take a ride and take a walk
And don't you know that old folks' homes smell so much, like my own

Time bends light
Paint's all peeling
Wait outside
Take four rights

The hotcha girls in the palisades
Dime store keets, pretty birds, pretty mouths
Glass eyes and the wooden teeth,
The engine's rusted in deep, deep sleep, it waits
The mail came from miles away, the postal man was always late,
And we wait
Tight lipped with a big ol' mouth,
The government workers all headed south while it rained
Glassy eyes and wooden teeth,
The engine's rusted in deep, deep sleep
It waits, it waits, it waits, to awake

    General Commenti think the song is about all the little things we do to make life better for ourselves and for those we love. we try and try, but these things are so little that noone else sees them, and so finally we die, feeling unaccomplished, and noone else ever sees it

    General CommentReally a good song, one of my favorite by UC. The line breaks and punctuation were the way it was in the CD insert, so I didn't tamper with them. I accidently put "workers all deaded south while it rained" but have already submitted a correction, so it should be changed soon.
    Enjoy, and get the album if you don't have it, it is really good.

    General CommentNobody has posted anything implying a song meaning, so i'll take the responsibility to briefly explain. hopefully somebody w / more time on their hands will elaborate or add his own piece of info.
    the opening lines are saying we are leaves on a tree, we begin to rust and turn into an older form. such as "old folks". hints "old folks home smell so much like my own", as in we really arn't all that different from the elderly. "then get left alone" could possibly mean death. im guessing hotcha girls are kind of like, "hootchie" girls, the young pretty girls all men lust over. when we get older and aapproach death we are left alone by these beutiful girls who are so important to us. the other versus like "we were dropping dimes on the ponies" i really have no idea about, maybe personal references to isaac's childhood memories? im not sure. In a nutshell it's about the people going through the elderly process and losing the relationships w/ young, pretty "hotcha" girls. instead they are only given "one trick, a wink for the truck stop boys".
