Brad:
I've done a lot; God knows I've tried
To find the truth. I've even lied.
But all I know is down inside

All:
I'm bleeding...

Janet:
And super heroes come to feast
To taste the flesh not yet deceased.
And all I know ... is still the beast

All:
Is feeding...

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh,
Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Oooh, oooh, aaah, aaah.

Narrator:
And crawling on the planet's face
Some insects called the human race...
Lost in time
And lost in space
And meaning.

All:
Meaning.

    My InterpretationTo the powerful extra terrestrials (super heroes) earth is a feast where they can satisfy their needs (taste the flesh) at the expense of the inferior humans. The humans are aware they're being exploited (the flesh not yet deceased... still the beast is feeding) and wonder about what it all means.

    General Commenti think this song is a message to human kind as a whole: no matter what you do and how hard you try, you will never get what you want. it's kind of an emo message and it has nothing to do with the movie, but that's what the lyrics seem to say.

    General CommentNo, you're not the only one who likes this song. In some ways it's the best in the whole movie (though RHPS has some of the best songs EVER in it!)

    General CommentThe human race isn't the only thing lost in meaning, I have no idea what the hell it means exactly. I have the jist of it I believe though...

    Liza-beth, I agree. RHPS contains some of the greatest songs ever.

    General CommentIt is hard to explain this song, 'cause you know Richard O'Brien has interesting views on life and society, but the meaning of the all movie (although it seems really shallow) , and also this song should be the fact humans always want, try and sometimes think they are big and great. And actually they are tiny besides the sun and the Earth won't change the direction whatever happens.
