"Wilma's Rainbow" as written by and Page Nye Hamilton....
You heard about, 'be your own man'
You talk a lot and loud
Illustrate the obvious boy
You're mentally endowed

Watershed year comes
You're flush with fever
The richest junk dealer

Honestly, a book you read once let you
Think in rhyme. the old extreme sits
Pale and molds now for the
Millionth time

Wilma's rainbow of peaceful colors
The richest junk dealer

    General CommentSomebody who thinks they're smart with knowledge they've stole of other people, but when it comes down to really knowing 'Watershed year comes You're flush with fever' the person doesn't know a lot and what he knows is old news 'The old extreme sits Pale and molds' I'm not sure what the rest of it means but that to me is the jist of it ;)

    General CommentlMao.. Helmet's sarcastic response to player types (the obvious boy) who 'illustrates the obvious point' TRIES X0 to be the alpha male in the group (you talk a lot and loud) - has a serious size issue and TRIES to make up for it with stunning conversation skills (he's mentally endowed!)XD he TRIES to 'get smart' by reading and talking about literature (honestly, a book you read once...) - but then: his graduation year (watershed year comes) is torment (flush with fever) because as the bully, everyone hated him growing up - and he knows it! - he's a failure at everything but a total success as a bulls*** artist (the richest junk dealer) XD u know this loser he's Cartman/Nelson only grown up ! it's kinda part 2 of Faith No More's 'Introduce Yourself' anyway rock on !!

    General CommentI could be wrong, but I thought it was " Honesty, a book you read once...I bet you think it rhymes"

    Either way this is a great song by a great band

    General CommentI always thought the line was "the richest DRUG dealer", that sorta completely changes the meaning of the line.

    General CommentI still think "Unsung" is Helmet's best song, but this is right up there with it. One of my favorite songs.
