Christie Road (3:31)

Cover of Kerplunk!

From Kerplunk! and 22 other releases

“Christie Road” It’s about a common belief that this song is about a place where the author and his friends used to go to get high. However, this is only a part of it, and the lyrics are mostly not about smoking weed, but simply about a place where you want to go when you need to be alone - a place that you can call home. The narrator says that Christie Road is a place where he feels comfortable and where he can relax. He goes there when he’s stressed out because that’s the place where he feels complete, where he can forget about the rest of the world and just be himself.

The song isn’t as much about the tracks on Christie Road as just about the need to be alone. We all need that sometimes, and if you’re lucky, you have a special place where you can go to get your thoughts together, relax and be yourself - your own Christie Road.

Staring out of my window watching the cars go rolling by
My friends are gone I've got nothing to do
So I sit here patiently watching the clock tick so slowly
Gotta get away or my brains will explode

    @DavidSmith98 I'm 35, still like to get high, and listen to music. Some people get older, and looze their soul, just remember to keep it mang.

    Such a great tune. Reminds me so much of a younger, carefree me. It takes me back 18 years or so hanging out with friends with nothing better to do than get high and listen to music. Those were the days.

    Christie Road is an actual place. There are actually abandoned train tracks some where in Northern California. They were so much better in the early 90s. I know that their music changed because they matured. But, it's too different. I like their old stuff better.
