I take a drive in the wrong hand lane
Bad, brand, talking about fresh rain
may hand my hand's gonna shake the tent
Are you going to be your own goddamn best friend?
Well, he taught the fruit how to eat itself
It was hanging out long out on the shelf
Well...
Where do I land? Where do I land?
I don't understand
Walk across the country
Shaking many hands if you buy the proper kit
The kit which you've already got
I do not understand
I take a ride in the wrong hand lane
Bad, brand, talking about fresh rain
may hand my hand's gonna shake the tent
And you gonna be your own goddamn best friend?
Well, he taught the fruit how to eat itseld
He was hanging out long out on the shelf
I'm back home and talking about nothing
You can't get the chicken or the stuffing
Going around, you think you're tough
You can kick ass
Take a drive on a downtown train
Wake up so you can get drunk again
Well...
Well, take a drive in the wrong hand lane
Got bad breath talking about fresh rain
Taught the deal how to admire itself
Are you going to get sick worrying about your health
Where do I land? Where do I land?

    General CommentI remember one time I was walking home listening to this, and just as the "how do I land" line played, I looked up to see a plane overhead.

    I dunno. It was perfect.

    General CommentThis is clearly about how society is following the wrong path. "Take a drive in the wrong hand lane"
    It portrays the whole idea of mankind being the creator of it's own demise. With technology and machines. "well we taught the fruit how to eat itself" nad "we taught the mirror how to admire itself" clearly portray that. If you can't catch that well, be prepared to be you're own destruction.

    General CommentI think this is a song about hypochondria and fucking the American Capitalist system and hypocritical oxymoronic trendy motherfuckers. Who knows...it could be all or none of the before-mentioned. I've given up trying to figure it out...it's just damn good music. I think the last line of the song nicely sums up my attitude concerning the lyrical content.

    General Commentnah i think its bout trying to project an image about being fake which much of america is but i see it as one person not a whole object walk across the country shaking many hands
    and you're buying the product,
    but you didn't get that cos you already got it
    and you do not understand
    thats like saying that your out there to everyone trying to be something your not but youve also lost all identity of yourself thats what i see the songs about
