    General Commentuhm...amerca's preoccupation with material things?
    "race car ya-yas" being motorheads.
    maybe "the land where you can't change lanes" implies futility in terms of making change in the world because of the country's obsession with being bigger, stronger, and faster, like a race car ya-ya.

    General CommentI agree with backupdork. This has to be the best song I have ever heard that uses the word "testicles."

    General Commenti agree with Lincoln131. Also possibly the greatest way of singing the word testicle i have ever heard too.
    I think the song meaning is a simple one (anger and frustration at people who take possesions far too seriously) but like many cake songs it is worded in such a way that it can be interpreted in more analytical and in depth ways if the listener wants to.

    General Commentprolly written when on tour in the south, this song makes me think of modern day bo and duke redneck mo-fos who are complete idiots. cake songs have a deeper meaning, but i this this one is simply about people who see nascar as jesus and live as such. life in the city of lost senses,

    General CommentI think this is about Los Angeles- a place where you can't change lanes because of the traffic. Assholes in 80s IROC Cameros with fuzzy dice in their mirrors cutting you off.. At least, that's the imagery I get when I hear this song. Sitting on a Los Angeles Highway

    General CommentCould just be a song about a parallell universe filled with "Race Car YaYas" and be completely random.

    General CommentI honestly think this song is just a bunch of crazy shit John came up with and doesn't have much meaning.

    General CommentI agree w/ backupdork, but the dice mean that we're in a species that is expanding and advancing in many ways, but still foolishly clinging to it's clumsy, laughable, primitive roots.
