"Guy Who Got a Headache and Accidentally Saves the World" as written by and Wayne/ivins Coyne....
Magnified up close, in pickle jar
Is the last hope the world has, yeah, yeah

Thinking that his head surely would explode
His thoughts go deeper than ever, yeah, yeah

Something never dreamed in all the science books
The biggest light switch gets turned on yeah, yeah

And he's on the way to a real first in all the universe yeah, yeah
He saves the day and the world knows, the sonic boom explodes

Hesitant to tell the real reason, the Nobel Prize is given-yeah-
It's hard to celebrate with a headache oh yeah, yeah

And he's on the way to the real first in all the universe yeah, yeah
And he saves the day and the world knows. Now watch his head explode

    General CommentThe poet/song writer creates something beautiful but the reason for his creativity is his headache or heartache - isn't it an old story? So we enjoy the the masterpiece and praise him, but this will not ease the poet's suffering. Wayne as always is making a joke about himself.

    General Comment"the boy wonder
    saves the planet,
    but destroys his ever-enlarging brain in the process.
    goodbye, everybody
    have a happy life
    it looks like brighter days are ahead for the whole planet
    there it goes"

    General CommentWell, literally it's exactly what the title implies, some guy gets a massive headache and this accelerates his thinking somehow. Then he gets the Nobel Prize for his efforts, but really can't be that thrilled about it because his head still really hurts. Maybe they're saying that personal pain can lead to someone doing something for the greater good, but whatever reward they get for it, they're still going to end up pretty miserable?

    General CommentYeah, Ive thought about it a lot more lately and arrived more or less at the same conclusions. It is hard to celebrate with a headache!

    General CommentOn the Fearless Freaks DVD they show Wayne recording the voice-over thing at the end part of the song, and it's actually longer and he goes into saying that "This has been an advertisement for such-and-such aspirin, the aspirin that's more effective than..." whatever, something like that. Like the whole fantastic story was just made up to sell something. I like that idea. But I guess cutting it out made the song seem more positive, like some weird local news "and now..." piece.
