"Vital Beach" as written by and Mark Gajadhar Morgan Henderson....
I've fallen face first into a painting
Of hallucinogenic sunset.
At vital beach, vital beach, vital beach, yeah!
Vital beach, vital beach

well I'm the boy on the beach with the guitar,
All sharks' Beretta's:
Click-click, click-click, click-click, click!
We're the band on the stage at the wedding
By the sea with frozen t-t-t-t-tidal waves.

alright, she's a concubine turned trophy wife,
He's a high profile CEO.
All the seagulls mutter,
"What'cha doing with your life?"
And vomit laugh tracks on your lead solos.

Brittle, brittle moon!
We're grieving for you
Brittle, brittle moon!
Held together with glue
And we sing,
"Everybody's waiting for you to drop!"
Then we fall face first into another painting...

I've fallen face first into a painting
Of a hallucinogenic seascape.
At vital beach, vital beach, vital beach, yeah!
Vital beach, vital beach

I'm the boy in the sharkskin tuxedo
All my fans are screaming,
"Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!!"
My agent said I should chew off my own face
I have no taste and anything could help

Sing it again, "Three cheers for opportunity!"
This is the year of speedboats, summer homes.
Still the seagulls mutter,
"What'cha doing with your life?"
And vomit laugh tracks on your career goals.

Brittle, brittle moon!
We're grieving for you
Brittle, brittle moon!
Held together with glue
And we sing,
"Everybody's waiting for you to drop!"
Then we fall face first into another painting...

at vital beach, vital beach, vital beach, yeah!
Vital beach, vital beach

at vital beach, vital beach, vital beach, yeah!
Vital beach, vital beach

at vital beach, vital beach, vital beach, yeah!
Vital beach, vital beach

at vital beach, vital beach, vital beach, yeah!
Vital beach, vital beach

at vital beach, vital beach, vital beach, yeah!
Vital beach, vital beach

    General CommentIt's most likely about bands being washed up from being a one hit wonder or something like that, and wondering how their life degraded into who they are as musicians now

    General CommentI think the re-posted lyrics are correct; and I'd assume he/she has the official lyric booklet by some twist of fate.

    Nice.

    General Commenti think this song has to do with falling in to the imagined golden life of being an artist, then sees what it is for real; that life is a hard one to get by on, unless you really are living for the art.

    i think teh guys are saying that there is no sort of respect for teh fakers that do it for the fame. that music is decaying under these types of people. because the agent could care les if you hchew off your face, and if tyou don't love your music to do it, no one else will care more than you do.

    General CommentWell put, idiobox. The music world is corrupt and empty for those whose hearts don't stand by their art.
