And All The Little Ants Are Marching, Red and Black Antenna Waving.

I've been obsessing over this song for so long, might as well blog it. No particular reason why. Man, I'm really looking forward to getting home and going to an EIC gig. They do this song pretty well. Anybody up for Wala's?

Ants Marching
-- Dave Matthews Band

He wakes up in the morning
Does his teeth, bite to eat and he's rolling
Never changes a thing
The week ends, the week begins

She thinks, we look at each other
Wondering what the other is thinking
But we never say a thing
These crimes between us grow deeper

Goes to visit his Mommy
She feeds him well, his concerns
He forgets them
And remembers being small
Playing under the table and dreaming

Take these chances
Place them in a box until a quieter time
Lights down, you up and die

Driving in on this highway
All these cars and upon the sidewalk
People in every direction
No words exchanged
No time to exchange

And all the little ants are marching
Red and black antennas waving
They all do it the same
They all do it the same way

Candyman tempting the thoughts of a
Sweet tooth tortured by the weight loss
Program cutting the corners
Loose end, loose end, cut, cut
On the fence, could not to offend
Cut, cut, cut, cut

Take these chances
Place them in a box until a quieter time
Lights down, you up and die

It's just another one of those irresistibly quotable songs that you're never quite sure what is being sung about. And the outro is gorgeous too, it's just MADE for a live performance to close of a show.
