Lyrics:

So once again I have lost my brain. Some might say Iím half-insane. I searched all over to get the score. I found out what Iíd been looking forÖ Iím opaque, and OK. I canít tell where Iíll be one way to the next. Iím lost, with a cost. Yes I may seem confusing while Iím caught up in perusing nowÖ Well Nostradamus told me. He said the sky was falling. So when world becomes another sun. At least Iíll have had my fun. Just take some gasoline, maybe some kerosene. Letís smoke and paint and have ourselves a ball. Hey can you guess what Iíll think of next?ÖNow youíve been looking me in the eye. You think me stuck in a world of lies. But I tell you brother just give it a whirl. Youíll find youíll be loving the abstract worldÖ I might break, thatís OK. Iím not strong and mighty but Iím kinda thin and spunky. Ambitious and ridiculous. The hipsters unite under an Old City, moonlit nightÖ Well Nostradamus told me. He said the sky was falling. So when world becomes another sun. At least Iíll have had my fun. Just take some gasoline, maybe some kerosene. Letís smoke and paint and have ourselves a ball. Hey can you guess what Iíll think of next?Ö Seems Iíve been out for some time. But I got tired of working for you. So judgmental and condescending you are. Iíll make it my own wayÖ Well Nostradamus told me. He said the sky was falling. So when world becomes another sun. At least Iíll have had my fun. Just take some gasoline, maybe some kerosene. Letís smoke and paint and have ourselves a ball. Hey can you guess what Iíll think of next?Ö



Behind the Song:
ďA song about a pretentious movement of post-college folks who believe that they must experience all that the world has to offer. They were isolated by their parents and are now free to pursue all manner of experimentation and excitement that all big cities promise. This is an age-old story, yet every generation thinks they are the first ones to adopt the pseudo-artistic lifestyle.Ē - Nick
