"Walrus" as written by and Scott Douglas Victor/brewer Russo....
(Hey!)

Well I read the news today
And the walrus said the lucky man made the grade yea
Well ain't that great
You say
Well about the rest of that news left me empty and mad
Singing the blues yeah
Its sad but true

'cause,
Everything gets old, everyone is dumb
So I keep changing
Everything is gay, everyone is fake
So I can't hang around

Si-Si-Sitting back look with on your face
Like I'm a piece of crap
And you're a fucking ace well
Its time to go
You know?
Hit the road jack
Like the song goes you ain't ever coming back
Because the world turned black
Well don't you know?

'cause,
Everything gets old, everyone is dumb
So I keep changing
Everything is gay, everyone is fake
So I can't hang around

(Oh oh)

Well don't you know?
Everything gets old, everyone is dumb
So I keep changing
Everything is gay, everyone is fake
So I can't hang around
Everything gets old, everyone is dumb
So I keep changing
Every word they say
Every word is fake

So I won't be around

Everything gets old, everyone is dumb
Everything gets old, everyone is dumb
Everything gets old, everyone is dumb

    General CommentThis song is awesome. UL is a damn good band. This song is a collage of beatles songs which is pretty cool. The song meaning is somed up by 'Everything gets old, everyone is dumb' so so true! This album should be great, Music From High Places is going to be tough to follow. I can't believe allmusic.com only gace that album 2 and half stars! I mean outdoors acoustic getting that good of a sound (they problem have taylor guitars and stuff but still)!! Anyway, definitely looking forward to hear the new album!

    General CommentThis is written from the perspective of a cynical person. I believe we are supposed to take this person to be wrong about "everything" and "everyone" in the sense that logically it is impossible for these absolutes to exist. But, I think the person represents a large segment of the youthful population and how they see the world. In a world where tragedy is apparent, and knowledge is deep, it is easy to become disillusioned and feel isolated. As a cynical person, the person is aware of the aspects of culture he adopts from certain groups, and then he rejects them when he sees others acting the same way because he realizes it is all a charade. He wants to "keep changing" to prove he isn't vulnerable to the attacks on his independence made by his society's norms and views on culture. This might be far too deep an idea for just some rock band (I don't know whether or not the band is intelligent), but the ending lines emphasize everyone gets old and everyone is dumb, which would include the speaker. The irony is thus that while speaker is aware of the flaws of everyone, he spends all his time trying to avoid these flaws, when the flaws will inevitably touch him assuming they haven't already because by isolating himself he learns nothing and simply will become old and dumb.

    General CommentOnlyHeren4DICK has it all wrong!!! He is among those of which are in fact gay. If you don't think a majority of the population (American population that is) is gay, tool bags, or absolutely freaking stupid then you don't get this song. On the other hand, it is SOOOOOO Beatles!

    General CommentMusic in high places is hard to follow not to many bands can pull off acoustic like UL and this is a good follow up to MiHP.

    General Commenti love this song... good to listen to at night... nice simple guitars and simple meaning. the chorus says it all people... its a simple song, with a simple meaning, but its a good song period.
