"Space Cadet" as written by and Josh Homme....
I'm standing alone on the cliffs of the world
No one ever tends to me
Sitting alone, covered in rays
Some things are so my mind can breath

Waiting is hard, fucking takes so long
Draped in sun, hands in sand
Earth acid cleanses me, cleanses me clean
But the world it never comes

It never comes
It never comes
It never comes

I lay on my side in the edge of the room
She never expects anything from me
When all the days, the days of the year
I know I miss that part of me

Waiting is hard, fucking takes so long
Draped in sun, hands in sand
Earth acid cleanses me, cleanses me clean
But the world it never comes

It never comes
It never comes
It never comes
It never comes
It never comes

    General CommentI think you're all wrong. He does say room and not womb. He also says "Calms" not "Comes" or "Cums."
    It's very possible this song is about a woman, or a past relationship and he's very lonely. The quick pace of the world never lets him settle, or anyone else for that matter, the world it never calms.

    General CommentAll I know about this song is that it's absolutely beautiful. The hushed lyrics and the guitar changing it's pace go so well

    General CommentIt's about doing mushrooms.

    "Some things are so the mind can breath" - A psychadelic experience is a lot of times refreshing and a needed experience.
    "Waiting is hard—fucking takes so long" - he's waiting for the drug to kick in.
    "Earth Acid cleanses me, it cleanses me clean" - If you've done shrooms you'd know its got many parallels to acid (LSD), but it is like "earth's acid" because it comes from the earth

    The verse that starts with the line "I lay on my side on the edge of the room" is about actually being under the influence of the drug. He is tripping out. The earth has given him this gift and she does not expect anything in return for the trip.

    General CommentI like this song very much, and according to me speaks about sex: "I lay on my side in the edge of the WOMB", not room! I think this passage speaks about that kind of women who are only able to have sex, not more. Always IMHO!

    General Commenti love it too.
    i think it's about a man who can't find HIS real woman. He's fucking with other woman, but he still feels...you could say lonely??

    General CommentI think it's about him being in touch with the planet. Saying screw it to women and sex and loving his planetm he'd rather sleep with it. There's no hassle with fucking the world, no need to cum.
