We were drunk and carsick
When we rolled into town
Pulling up to the drive-in
There was no one around

When the lights unfolded from the sky
We were the only ones to be found
They were soaring through the sky
We were left on the ground

Sitting in the living room
The dog is catching caramel corn
I never wanted a change
Brushing teeth and combing hair
I guess they do this everywhere

I think it's time for a change
I never wanted a change
I guess it's time for a change

    General CommentWhen i saw them in Chicago at the Metro, before they played this song he said "Here's a song about being abducted by Aliens".
    That may not be verbatim. Anyway, it makes sense.
    I just wonder what the change part is about?
    Almost seems like an alien getting acclimated to normal human life.

    General CommentProbably my favorite MBD song. You have not lived until you've seen it live, which is rare. They played this for the first time in three years at the Braid show in Detroit, and I believe also at the Chicago show the night before. Quite an experience.

    General CommentSo chill. Reminds me of my girlfriend. Which is bad I guess, if you look at the lyrics.

    General CommentI saw them a few months ago.
    Murder by Death is fucking amazing live.
    If you ever get the chance, even if you have to sell family members or body parts, by all means.
    do it!

    General CommentWierd, they were Little Joe Gould forever and no one cared, I was lucky enough to be at the 2nd Story show when they announced their name change, or so I was told, don\'t remember. Good stuff though and yeah this song is awsome.

    General CommentI kind of wish they would have kept the name Little Joe Gould. It's wonderful. If I'm not mistaken, it comes from a poem by e.e. Cummings. Great poem, too.

    All well, Murder by Death is good as well.
