While I'm Wrenchin' on my Ride

Post by miaredondo » Mon Mar 24, 2008 6:28 pm

"I won't slip and I won't trip
send Matt Vargas to re-grip
while I'm wrenchin' on my ride..."


These lyrics confuse me. I always thought of this little breakdown as a description of shooting up. I thought that "send Matt Vargas to re-grip" meant that Vargas was tying off Brad's arm to make the vein pop out. I also used to think it said "retching on my right" as though Bradley were sick with withdrawal or something and puking on his side. But now I know the real words and it's been bugging me for months. This whole time I thought he was talking about heroin but I guess he's talking about being all twakked out (i know its called secret TWEAKER pad).

why doesn't it make sense? retching on my right could mean throwing up (or about to throw up) on his right. yes it is disturbing, the effects of hard drugs are very disturbing. Let's not be close-minded here people!

Well lets break it down hun.

Nothing to do with havening a closed mind but just reading the lyrics.



I won't slip, and I won't trip. Send Matt Vargas to regrip.
While I'm wrenchin' on my ride, in that secret pad where we hide,
there's always lotsa fun stuff to do,
like relax and design a brand new tattoo.
Play with my cross-word puzzle book, I'm even learning how to cook.

If you have ever done any kind of speed or tweek you will know that a side effect is Increased energy and attentiveness. Agitation, compulsive fascination with repetitive tasks
Talkativeness, irritability, panic attacks.


So Vargas had to leave to catch his head. Brad was fixing his car etc etc. Hence the verse theres always lots of fun stuff to do.


So wretchin on your right would not fit in the verse nor make sense with the rest of it.

The song is called STP which is secret tweeker pad. He sining about being super tweeked out.

Plus, I didn't think those lyrics were ever particularly unclear...the ones after the breakdown I guess I could see how someone could butcher those, but he is singing pretty slow and pretty clear through that part.

Or it could be "retching on my ride" meaning "throwing up in/on his car."
