"The Joke's On You" as written by Bryce P. Wilson and Jahron Henson....
Riding on a unicorn
Stranded in my mind
Electric raven met me there
To see what we could find
Strange days
Incredible days
Bring all my children to me
Strange ways
Incredible ways
On a dark stars endless journey
Endless realms of fading dreams
Lies stranded with the past
We climb up on the wind of change
We say "You know the joke's on you"
Strange days
Incredible days
Bring all my children to me
Strange ways
Incredible ways
On a dark stars endless journey
Strange days
Incredible days
Strange ways
Incredible ways

    My OpinionIMO, this text deals about death. I think it's an old man whose talking about his own death.

    Electric raven met me there
    To see what we could find : We can imagine that the electric raven is the undertaker in the cremaorium.

    strange days (...)On a dark stars endless journey : the only day you 'll can live once and forever is your diying day.

    Bring all my children to me : when you're nearing to die, all your family, your friends come to visit you since while you last day(s).

    "Endless remains of fading dreams
    Lies stranded with the past
    We climb up on the wind of change
    We say "you know the jokes on you" : At the end of your life lies are fading away,we don"t care... old people are always talking about their old good and harsch times. This world is always changing, and they saw it. Climbing up a new winf od change for day, it 's gone with the wind in dust.

    Maybe, it's just my interpretation, but I like it. :)

    General CommentI think it talks about the open minded more "young" (if you'd like) generation. Of more ambitious people that are refusing to stay stuck with the past and with false ideals.

    General Commentin a way it sounds like a trip on some kind of drug, maybe acid:
    "Strange days
    Incredible days" could be remebering the "good times" while on the drug.

    "On a dark stars endless journey"
    could also represent the drug trip.
