"Some People Ride the Wave" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Some people ride the wave of generosity
Some people ride the wave of mediocrity
Me I ride the wave of never gonna drown
Oh just fooling around
Now I gots the balloons
And you you gots the mud
And me I gots the snail
And you you gots the stuff
Well you got so much more than I figure was in store
Oh I ain't foolin' no more
Now some people ride the cat when asleep or when awake
Some people ride a cat for riding a cat's sake
Me I ride this cat cause its claws have got my eyes
I'll get 'em back in a few more tries
Oh I'll get 'em back in a few more tries
Some people ride the books that tenderize their names
Some people ride the books that bastardize our claims
Me I ride the book that's sifting in the sand
Aw, some day I'll understand
Aw, some day I'll understand
Some people ride the songs that stay inside our souls
Some people ride the songs that really ain't songs at all
Me I ride the song that ends right when it starts
They'll split before they part

    General CommentI'm not like a lot of people on songmeanings where they see every song as about drugs, but this song is even acknowledges its double-speak.

    Well you got so much more than I figure was in store
    Oh I ain't foolin no more

    Devendra even realizes how obvious this song is about "riding the wave."
