Why is my baby so pale Why does she wear black gloves On a summer’s day That’s right that’s right Why does my baby not sleep Why is she not gaining weight She’s talking backwards all the time How does her engine run How come she speaks in tongues How does her garden grow Why is my baby so kind Did she forget about revenge I must investigate That’s right that’s right How does her engine run How come she speaks in tongues How does her garden grow I wanna know about elaine

I stepped away from the drag The timing was right I fell 100 flights of stairs That’s half a mile Poor lonesome devil crooked heart Put up a fight Attitude adjustment scheme It’s a dream I’m gonna be fixed gonna be fixed The timing is right I might get loud might get loud Wave bye bye Poor lonesome devil crooked heart Put up a fight

I’m building a robot in my basement It’s gonna receive my guests and tell them jokes It’s gonna answer the phone and really listen To you It’s gonna fix my drinks and buy food Friendly robot Go out and meet the people Go out and trust the people Go out and love the people I’m building a robot it’s nearly finished It’s gonna write my songs and read my books It’s gonna find the right words to reassure you It’s gonna fix my drinks and buy food Friendly robot Go out and meet the people Go out and trust the people Go out and love the people Friendly robot Go out and meet the people Go out and trust the people Go out and love the people

Listen to the noise Better than Bob Dylan Put your headphones on Get yourselves a going Listen to the trees Better than the beatles One six four Shall I compare thee to an ostrich? A ha / Got no mind at all We got this lo-fi life We play a sad boogie The continents will drift We will rotate like an Iggy Listen to the buzz Better than your hi-fi Into reefer madness Open up your tired mind’s eye A ha / Got no mind at all Put your race face on baby Transmit some frequencies to me Got no time for grace baby

We found ourselves on a Monday morning Sliding off the track A birdbrain stuck in a loop Nananana Art in the 21st century It’s not gonna help us out My head is so heavy sometimes Nananana Everyone’s out partying and I’m in a waiting room I said Moses man I’m hit Moses man I’m hit An evil mountain on our path A one-eyed rubber witch That’s why we’re the five o’clock drunks Nananana Everyone’s out partying and I’m in a waiting room I said Moses man I’m hit Moses man I’m hit My head is so heavy sometimes

We could not see eye to eye Took a trip around the world I like airports / foreign money / funny language I like walking through these motel hallways So many doors I like rooms when they are empty and they are dry And I’m just a visitor A mistake that can’t be fixed They said ‘go’ and I was gone I like airports / foreign money / funny language I like sound that comes through yellow cardboard walls Straight from the lobby I like closets when they are empty and they are clean And I’m just a visitor

That’s not the right way Don’t trust that manager Don’t trust that rain god His bleeding eyeballs Gives you blisters Makes you defensive No revolution Under this roof Dig your own grave It does not rock No no no My kingdom for a tambourine You’ll be the bonehead Get some oxygen Place your bets on the blind horse get some beers ruin it for everyone no revolution under this roof it does not rock no no no

Someone said there must be something they’re not telling us I replied there’s an elephant in the room A big black page at the end of every storybook Look around in November everything dies And then you’ll meet a new queen bee In the summer you’ll be blind again You’ll be tripping out of your mind again ‘till the leaves are brown can’t you hear every voice is dubbed in French they look polite while they carry out their parts A big black page at the end of every storybook Look around in November everything dies And then you’ll meet a new queen bee In the summer you’ll be blind again You’ll be tripping out of your mind again ‘till the leaves are brown

Planet Yoyo 02:27
Well I used to have my feet on the ground But who cares about the loss of bio-diversity? Now that you’re holding me upside down Who cares about the global financial crisis? Not me, not me, not me Well I used to have opinions about stuff But who cares about the state of things in the 21st century? Now that you’re shaking my world and I live on planet yoyo Who cares about poverty and all that? Not me, not me, not me I used to have my feet on the ground But who cares about the power of multinational corporations? Now that you’re holding me upside down 50 cigarettes a day are going to give me cancer but who cares? Not me, not me, not me I used to worry about the future and also about the present But who cares about money and who cares about security? Now that you’re shaking my world and I live on planet yoyo Who cares about pollution, racism and guns? Not me, not me, not me Just want to make out with you. Just want to make out with you. Just want to make out with you.

about

Take the edge off the morning
Pitch black headache and Chinese eyes
Fall backwards into the future
I’ve outsourced my memory

Drunk at home is just as good I say
That’s my advice
I’m with you in your disappointment
Comes with a price
Keep yourself down on the ground
(That’s my advice
Keep yourself down on the ground)

Take the edge off the evening
angels pissing in your eyes
the good men always on your trail
see the noiseless drifter in disguise

I’m with you in your disappointment
I figured out your evening accent
