(the boys and i have fixed up a session of dance music for you
and we hope you like it)

it was supposed to be
moving sidewalks, jet packs, and hover crafts
mostly it's the feeling of moving
into a house where the last tenant was a suicide
and the landlord looks at you nervously

check out the cigarette girl from the future
she's just as bored as you are
the cigarette girl from the future
is even more bored than you are

discos don't look pretty from an anthropological perspective
watch us rattle in the haze of the listless proxy for a pulse

but what i need, need to know
is how much strychnine was in that ecstasy
you gave me an hour ago?

check out the cigarette girl from the future
she's just as bored as you are
the cigarette girl from the future
is even more bored than you are

'cause she knows where all of this is heading

    General CommentI believe it's "how much strychnine was in that ecstasy."
    Beauty Pill has indicated that many of their songs are about the disappointment of the millenium, and I think this song is one of them.
    The initial imagery of "The Jetson's" sort of new century folds into anxiety over an anticipated tragedy. "The cigarette girl" I think represents passive resignment in the face of this.
