Mother Mother - Chasing It Down Lyrics



[Radio]
Common place things seem to have great significance
Hi

Turn around your life or we'll change
Without your consent
Without your okay
It happened again
I woke up today
And everything changed
All my friends and all my family
Suddenly don't understand me
Understand I'm not the man they think I am

Try chasin' it down
Try chasin' it down
Try chasin' it down
It don't wanna be found
It don't wanna be found
It don't wanna be found

Favorite day but favorite waitress
Favorite place
It's up in flames, it's up for sale
It doesn't matter anyhow
Like any thing that tasted sweet
It only tastes that way
About a week
Before at best
Gone bittersweet

Try chasin' it down
Try chasin' it down
Try chasin' it down
It don't wanna be found
It don't wanna be found
It don't wanna be found

Abigail, oh baby girl
You had a name that said itself
But funny, how'd the name get changed
About the time you find your sick of sayin' it
Sayin' it
Sayin' it
Sayin' it

We had a thing so lovely
Took every last part of me
But funny, once you're into it
We all encompass things just as a part of it
Part of it
Part of it
Part of it

Try to get back there
Try to get back there
Try to get back there
Try to get back there

It's a one shot deal
One shot deal
It's a one shot deal

Turn around your life or we'll change
Without your consent
Without your okay
All my friends and all my family
Suddenly don't understand me
Understand I'm not the man they think I am

Oh, where'd it go?
Oh, where'd it go?
Oh, where'd it go?
Oh

Oh, try chasin' it down (Oh, where'd it go?)
Try chasin' it down (Oh, where'd it go?)
Try chasin' it down (Oh)
It don't wanna be found (Oh, where'd it go?)
It don't wanna be found (Oh, where'd it go?)
It don't wanna be found (Oh)

Try to get back there
Try to get back there
Try to get back there
Try to get back there
There
There

Mother Mother Chasing It Down Comments
  1. CristaWeirdo

    The first album I ever heard from them was "Touch up", which is the first album they've released, and the the second album I heard was "O my heart" which is also the second album they've released, so after knowing this I'm trying to hear all the albums in order :">

  2. Samantha Oleander

    im dum b and make a lot of connections that usually arent there so this song probably isnt about being dysphoric or trans but jesus fuck some of the lines feel super spot on and it drives me up the wall.
    getting sick of your name and changing it, friends and family no longer understanding you, ***not being the man they think you are***.
    idk if every trans person feels this way but the line about changing without your consent also hit me particularly hard cause it reminds me of my family in that they seem to blame me for it, like i should have asked them for permission to be trans or some shit- like i broke their trust as if i needed their consent to realize who i oughtta be.

    idk this song has a super special importance to me i guess ((also it slaps hard as fuck oh my god)

    Ha if only I had an idea what the lyrics mean

    01esel

    I think it means trying to stay in the past rather than move on with your life because you were happier back then than you are now.

  5. Tabitha Vance

    after only ever hearing the live version, this is a trip

  6. John Mercury

    20/02/19 where., how)?
    :')

  7. Daisy Blueeyedboy

    I am conflicted: I love this band so much, and it saddens me that they're not really popular, however; I want to keep them all for myself 💞💞 they don't have a single bad song

    Glen Btl

    honestly, all their songs are so good, just kill me

  9. Shion Nezumi

    I just discovered them the other day and I have been physically unable to listen to anyone/anything else since!!!! I'm not complaining though, I love it.

  10. Thot Destroyer

    This song is such a 🅱️op why doesnt it have more views???

    Delphi Alice

    Because it isn't the original.

  11. Isa Corradi

    omg SO MUCH BIG BIG TRAIN FEELS 1:21-2:36
    dedicate this song to my father, big fan of them

  12. cornwallis

    I heard of this band from a friend, and I thought it was going to be really Edgy™ and I wouldn't like them, but I actually really enjoy their music, so far. (I've listened to like three songs, this is the second I've listened to on this album. The first one I listened to was Ghosting, then Problems, and now I've decided to listen to this full album in order.)

    Marcus Stockley

    Eureka is my favourite album of theirs. I love how each album they release has a different style while still overall sounding like Mother Mother.

    If I had to rank my favourite albums in order, it'd go:
    1. Eureka
    2. O My Heart
    3. Very Good Bad Thing
    4. No Culture
    5. The Sticks
    6. Touch Up

    Ximena Sanchez

    Hay loft is my personal favorite 👌

    titty mitty

    This lobster stole my wife and cast me out send help

  13. N0R5K1

    Abigail oh baby girl
    You had a name that said itself
    But funny, how'd the name get changed
    About the time you find your sick of sayin' it

    I find this funny my birth name is Abigail and I changed it to Thomas

    Reigan And mob

    N0R5K1 is your last name wiliford

    xXScribble DragonXx

    Late, but trans solidarity my guy 🤙🤙

    Caurica S

    I'm glad you're more comfortable with yourself now

    Spencer's Bullshit

    Me too man, hearing my deadname makes feel genuinly exhausted at this point-

  14. Ben Lyman

    I feel like maybe this song could be about someone who is having a hard time figuring out their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

    They "change without your consent"
    The speaker "Tr[ies] chasin' it down"
    But "It don't wanna be found"

    Also, one day, the speaker wakes up and "everything changed"

    Also significant: "Like any thing that tasted sweet
    It only tastes that way
    About a week"

    There ya go

    Dara Gwisin

    i really like this interpretation

    sweet stonem

    For some reason I thought it was about addiction/trying to overcome addiction and that the people in their life would leave them if they didn’t

    Person l

    "Suddenly my family doesn't understand me
    Doesn't understand I'm not the man they think I am"

    Leafyyay

    some of my friends call me jonah, gets me sad that everyone calls it whiny. i dont really get its negativity :<

  15. Aubrey

    Song about heroin?

  16. Abigail Samuel

    ayyyy mah name's Abigaillll

    Also, I love this band.

    Generic user

    not for too long. your name just changed, funny.

    Generic user

    it was about time i got sick of sayin' it. (fuck, why did i waited so long for this? xd)

  17. Billy Odaisky

    One of my favorite albums, such a great band

  18. Aleks Stepien

    this band <3333

  19. Burleigh

    commonplace things seem to have great significance...

  20. Change of Tone

    If anyone thinks they like the lyrics, go listen to the album "touch up" it's great

  21. Isabella Turcinovic

    10/10 where can i donatt? on paypal? :)))

  22. Emerald The cat

  23. Jon Z Glen

    Such an underrated band omg

    Floppy Rodrigo

    I'd say they were underrated in 2010. They're a little bit _too_ rated now.

    Amberlyn Jenessa

    Floppy Rodrigo man what a hipster

    clem

    theyre still pretty underrated tbh lmao

    FatalFlowerGarden

    Floppy Rodrigo Thats great! A good band getting the attention they deserve!

  24. Matt Corman

    0:56 - 1:01 ommgggg

  25. Mil Leez TV

    Just stumbled on this while listening to Crystal Castles. I'm glad I did not regret it. I have new tunes to enjoy.

    Glen Mathers

    I did the opposite aha no regrets!

    Colton Benson

    crystal castles what a great duo. RIP

  26. keybard

    my df introduced me to mother mother and after quite some time of being too lazy to go find a song (which i also did with one of my favourite bands tbh) i looked it up and NOICE

  27. Austin Rowat

    Just saw these guys on a whim last night and was blown away. What a fucking performance. These guys are rock stars.

    Emma Faulds

    OMGOSH YES I JUST SAW THEM LAST NIGHT THAT WERE FREAKING FANTASTIC I ALMOST DIED HOLY CRAP those guys are amazing live so if anybody wants to go they definitely should. Yes go to to or you will regret it that band is the best.

    Vicks's Walkthroughs

    Saw them the other day, they're just as good live as in their studio versions, and that can't be said with a lot of music.

  28. leonarbe

    I think this song was released in 2011

  29. JonnySocko619

    Why have I not listened to Mother Mother all these years? I have really been missing out.

  30. iloveyou

    awesome (:

  31. pekorama

    Such a wonderful song.
