2. I'm half lit, I can't dance for shit

Boring as it may seem.. I have to second that emotion! Priceless, among the best petty-isms ever in my book.

But there are many good ones on this album, so I might get back on the subject..

Another great one: "Every bad dream comes my way, turns to smoke on closer inspection"

Seems a lot like a revisit to the concept of "most things I worry about, never happens anyway" from Crawling Back to You. Just like the second verse is lifted whole from that same song. A strange and compelling quaity to "U Get Me High", IMO, is how it reaches back into the catalogue with these more or less obvious references. Among those, look for a hint of "Too Good To Be True" in there as well.. And "You Get Me High" needless to say.

 

Rather wish he would've called the song "You Get Me High, pt 2" to honor this rear view vibe of it and the first (admittedly silly and girl-on-lsd:eque) song of the same name. Not to mention how corny the use of "U" for "You" is. Oh well.. I guess sometimes.. smoke that comes his way, turns to bad ideas on closer inspection. :)

I've been looking at the lyrics again and I really like all of the lyrics to All You Can Carry. Night Driver mentioned the song sounded a little creepy, little nightmarish. I totally get that. But I think the lyrics in the song stand out as really great writing.
