I can hear the buzzing modulations of the universe
But you're the first to make me feel it
If only joy had a
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka

Bosses in offices on automatic drip
They got the keys to the city
But we got a lotta shakin' in our hips
Oh you know me
I love the universe
I love all the listeners
Watch it
Here's 50 thousand watts of good will
Oh if only joy had a
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka

I can hear the buzzing modulations of the universe
But you're the first to make me feel it
I love the universe
I love all the listeners
Watch it
Here's 50 thousand watts of good will
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka, Bam Thwok
Love. Bang. Crash. Wakka, wakka

    General CommentAs Kim Deal says, she got the lyrics from a discarded art book she found on the street while on tour. It appeared to belong to a child, who had written a short story about another universe where monsters and people partied together.
    Hence the weird lyrics. Great new song from one of the greatest bands.

    General Commentit sounds just like any other pixies song. which is why it's underwhelming. which is a good thing. it's been 12 years and they sound exactly the same.

    General CommentOh my gosh! Robram89..You are right on. I thought this was Debbie Harry when I first heard it. Sounds like Deal is channeling Blondie "Rip her to Shreds". It sounds like classic Pixies pre Bossanova.
