Earth tone suits you
So give it a smile
If I could hold your feet down
Get to know for awhile

To make due is a promise
Hard to keep without help
Never taught to look in
I'm too concerned with my health

Help me spread right, ash is
Cow fertilized
Come down in a feed town
Strength to minimize

Hold it

In the meantime

    My InterpretationI think this song is about being kept down by a system the puts you in a certain place. With time passing by, you will not think about the deficiencies of the system as such, but you are concerned about your job in fulfilling the expectations of others. The last part

    Help me spread right, ash is
    Cow-fertilized
    Come down in a feed town
    Strength to minimize

    seems to me about resignation. You see the system, but you can not fight against it. All you do is in the same direction as the others that can't see. You keep your frustration to yourself.
