"Crenshaw Punch/I'll Throw Rocks at You" as written by and Chino/carpenter Moreno....
Remember one time I bit you on the arm
I'm just afraid of solitude of being alone
I want to be at your house right now
Make you stand by the sink
I swear to keep awake

I can show you things like fire and more
Remember the time I kicked the TV over

For months, I'm sharing lungs
I can't talk to her
'Cause she'll throw rocks at me

I might never see you again
I hope we fix and stay special 'cause still
I ain't tryin' to start a fight
But now, I only, I could pull you in for a moment
I know this

That's so sweet
Battle stations, please guard us
Marry me, but don't lean on me
'Cause I'll fuck you till the morning
So stay


For months, I'm sharing lungs
I can't talk to her
'Cause she'll throw rocks at me

I'll be screaming and all besides
And ? listening
You'll know, she knows by now you don't clap
When it comes to my music

My lungs are in the top drawer
By now I've got a lover inside of me
As long as we sleep right now
As long as we sleep right now

For months, I'm sharing lungs
Now I can't talk to her
'Cause she'll throw rocks at me
She'll throw rocks at me

For months, I'm sharing lungs
I can't talk to her
'Cause she'll throw rocks at me

    General CommentThat's crazy that this is an out take from "Be Quiet And Drive" which is probly why it kicks major ass.

    If you listen really close, after he says "As long as we sleep at night" for the second time, he says, "Goodnight".

    General Commenthow has no one not commented on this? or viewed it even! this is the bside to the UKsingle "change(in the house of flies)" and it fucking rocks. the melody just kicks. it's about obsession with rejection. anyways, that's what i think...

    General CommentI completely agree with xpankfrisst's remark. However, I would like to ellaborate a bit more on it.

    Yeah, it's about an obsession with rejection, but more on the girl who gives it to him. He obviously had to have a relationship with this girl, and no matter how much he wants to fix this, she refuses. Perhaps they still maintain a sexual relationship, ie. friends with benifits, but she doesn't show any more interest in that anymore.
    The chorus:
    For month's I'm sharing lungs
    I can't talk to her
    Cause she'll throw rocks at me
    Perhaps pertains to him having to agree with her, because he doesn't want to risk a chance in ruining it again, so his voice is silenced out by hers. If he speaks his mind, he will only be ridaculed and hurt in the end. But he wants to be with her, so either way really, this guy is screwed.

    Chino, if I ever find this girl, I'll dispose of her for you. Deftones are the greatest band as far as lyrics and rhythm go.

    General Commentfirst may i begin with that i love this song. I think its about how he's in love and he wants to make it work but the stress of keeping up w/ a relationship plus the love for his music notice that *She knows that look when it comes to my music* he just wants to make it all ok but she wont let whatever they are fighting about go.
    i love deftones, i love chino moreno

    General Commentfrom another web site:
    From the linear notes, drummer Abe Cunningham: "This was the last song we recorded for the Around The Fur sessions. At the time, an experiment in sound and texture for us complete with nasty, sloppy hi-hats. The original title came to us while on tour many moons ago. We used to always borrow our friend's truck, it was our touring vessel, complete with camper shell, trailer, a plethora of beer, and many, many full piss bottles. One strange night we pulled over at a liquor store on Crenshaw Boulevard; tired of beer, we all came out with giant jugs of cheap-ass wine, which we soon dubbed 'Crenshaw Punch.'"
