    Default Beats Workin' question...

    In the song, one of the lines is "first 3 floors of that Charles River mud."

    Is Dave referencing the Charles River in Massachusetts? I know he spent some of his youth in Swampscott, but the Charles River is nowhere near that.

    ***I'm an idiot, the title should be Big River question, can someone change this?***

    Charles River runs through Boston so that is probably the river Dave is referring to. However, Co-Op City is in New York. I've thought about these lyrics as well. Perhaps Dave is suggesting that Charles River gets so flooded that it goes out the the Atlantic and into New York where the mud is carried to Co-Op City. Or perhaps he's just throwing out names. Hard to tell.

    I have learned not even to try to understand Dave's lyrics. They usually sound good and flow well. Maybe I'm not intelligent enough, maybe Dave isn't intelligent and is trying to act intelligent. I don't know. And I don't care.
    Right here I say....

    Dave spent plenty of time in Boston as a kid.
