Smells like autumn, smells like leaves;
You don't know that you'll rust and not belong so much
And then get left alone.
Suck it up, take a ride and take a walk
And don't you know that old folks' homes smell so much like my own.
The hotcha girls at the palisades,
Dime store keets, pretty birds, pretty mouths.
Mama's little truck stop rose, her dancy feet her happy laugh.
We were dropping dimes on the ponies in the cul-de-sac,
Casting shadows throwing sparks.
We left our teeth marks on the barrel of the gun,
The clipper ship across your chest.
Turns out the pony only had one trick, a wink for the truck stop boys.
They learned it all from the polaroids.
Smells like autumn smells like leaves,
You don't know that you'll rust and not belong so much
And then get left alone.
Suck it up, take a ride and take a walk
And don't you know that old folks' homes smell so much like my own.
Time blends light, paint's all peeling, wait outside, take four rights.
The hotcha girls in the palisades
Dime store keets, pretty birds, pretty mouths.
Glass eyes and the wooden teeth,
The engine's rusting in deep deep sleep, it waits.
The mail came from miles away, the postal man is always late,
And we wait and we wait.
Tight lipped with a big ol mouth,
The government workers all headed south while it rained.
Glassy eyes and wooden teeth, the engine rusted in deep deep sleep
It waits, and it waits, to awake.

    This song really touches my heart as well when i am depressed. Or if i feel like i don't belong anywhere. I think the fact that smell is a recurring theme in the beginning could be referring to smell being the most powerful memory trigger. Then perhaps he is commenting on the way that women act and how they can make you feel so alone. I say women simply because i feel like it seems to be from the point of view of a man, and i'm sure it ties in to some of brocks personal experiences, or his dreams. At the same time i'm reluctant to take anything literally simply because it is written in a style which is open to interpretation, and i think that is what is truly beautiful about it. It means what you need it to mean at the time and has no singular meaning at all.

    I don't want to sound like i'm getting something out of nothing, but this song touches my heart when i'm depressed, there has to be something there. I believe brock is writing about a self-utopia. As in everything in his dreams were reality, every fine detail.
