"Gingerale Afternoon (The Astrology of a Saturday)" as written by Michael Ivins, Wayne Coyne and Jonathan Donahue....
I've seen sunrise the size of my head
It freaks you up like ghouls from the dead
I feel like I'm ready to run thru your room
It's gonna be another gingerale afternoon

And I'm feelin' like
I'm leavin' much too soon

Got a pocket full of capsules and some chocolate ice cream
Both make me cool but one makes me dream
I feel like I'm ready to race through your room
It's gonna be another Gingerale afternoon

And I'm feelin' like
I'm leavin' much too soon

    General CommentIts not entirely about drugs, of course. It makes me think of the times when I first started doing drugs, and it would always be my best buddy and I getting high at his house, in his room, in summer, with his mom at work. Then we'd get out and roam the neighborhood, eating at burger king. Whole song gives off this nostalgic feel like thinking back to those days does. 'Gingerale afternoon' is just so perfect sounding a label for those kinds of days.

    General CommentI hate it when people say this, but...
    It's, eh, rather blatantly tied in with drug use. The term "gingerale afternoon" often has to do with acid, he mentions racing through a room, capsules making him dream, etc.

    Nevertheless, It's not entirely about drugs by any means. Just an addition.
