You're such a mystery
I just want to stand and stare
Nibble on your ear
And smell the ocean in your hair (Ocean in your hair, ocean in your hair)
I know you damage me
You leave me tangled in a knot (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
But when you reappear
I see Neptunian blues that eyes forgot (Eyes forgot)
Neptunian blues that eyes forgot (Blues that eyes forgot, eyes forgot)

Still, I only feel alive when the VU is flashing
Alarms going off in my head
I want to grab you and just kiss you
Maybe I should sit down
No sense in cashing us now
Yeah, I only feel all right when the VU is flashing
And bombs going off in my head
I want to grab you, want to scream at you, no icing me down
The party's crashing us now
The party's crashing us now

Oh, well, we made love
Like a pair of black wizards
You freed me from the past
You fucked the suburbs out of me (The suburbs out of me)
And all those ugly days
That made us so sick (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
They are just fossils now
We've learned the elevating trick (Elevating trick, elevating trick)
We've learned the elevating trick (Elevating trick, elevating trick)

Still, I only feel all right when the VU is flashing
Alarms going off in my head
I want to grab you and just kiss you
Maybe I should come down
No sense in cashing us now
Still, I only feel alive when the VU is flashing
And bombs going off in my head
I want to grab you, want to scream at you, no icing me down
The party's crashing us now
The party's crashing us now

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, oh-oh

I only feel all right when the VU is flashing
Alarms going off in my head
I want to grab you, want to scream at you, no icing me down
The party's crashing us now
I only feel all right when the VU is flashing
And bombs going off in my head
I want to grab you and just kiss you
Maybe I should come down
No sense in cashing us now

The party's crashing us now

    My Opinion:This song makes me think of what my dog would sing to me, if he could.

    You're such a mystery, I just want to stand and stare.
    Nibble on your ear, and smell the ocean in your hair.

    [My dog loves going to the dog beach. He also stares at me the whole way there.]

    I know you damage me, you leave me tangled in a knot.
    But when you reappear, I see neptunian blues that eyes forgot.

    [He doesn't like to be separated from me (we currently live apart), but when I'm home to visit he remembers what it was like to see me.]

    Still I only feel alive when the VU is flashing, alarms going off in my head.
    I want to grab you and just kiss you maybe I should sit down, no sense of cashing us now.

    [VU = volume unit. We always listen to music on the way there, which he seems to like. We also have a problem with him trying to kiss me while I'm driving, which results in me telling him to sit down.]

    Yeah I'll only feel alright when the VU is flashing and bombs going off in my head.
    I want to grab you or just scream at you no icing me down, the party's crashing us now.
    [
    (Same as before, but screaming = barking, and icing him down = calming him down.]

    Oh well we made love like a pair of black wizards.
    You freed me from the past, you fucked the suburbs out of me.

    [Black wizards could symbolize our unique/magical bond. The second line refers to the fact that I rescued him from a kill shelter.]

    Oh well those ugly days that made us so sick.
    They are just fossils now, we've learned the elevating trick.

    [Times have changed for us both in a positive way. We now know the trick to "elevating" or being happy.]

    General Comment:Neptunian blues, where that question mark is.

    And its "fucked the suburbs out of me" rather than fight.

    General Comment:This song is my guilty pleasure. I have done a lot of things i regret at parties, but this song makes me remeber those moments of fleeting exctacy, and I don't regret one moment of it. I especially like the line "you free me from the past
    you fucked the suburbs out ot me
    gone are those ugly days
    that made us so sick
    they are just fossils now
    we learned the elevated tricks"
    I grew up in a really conservative suburbian house and at school no one would even look at me. Then I get to college, and it's a whole different world from what I had known. Eventually I came out of the closet and found myself a girlfriend, and let's just say...my eyes were opened to a whole new world.
