"Era Vulgaris" as written by and Josh/castillo Homme....
I play a game 'til I'm dead
Or on a magazine
I wanna look like I'm dead
Dancing on a string
I eat the food when it's there
Make a mess of things
Get that look everywhere
But keep that look off my face

Everybody else wanna fall in love
There's no room for love in a modern sky
Living in the era vulgaris
Just drool in the dark
As you stare at the lights

From a crumbling tower I see everything
London, Tokyo, New York City
There's no love any place

Everybody else wanna fall in love
There's no room for love in a modern sky
Living in the era vulgaris
Just drool in the dark
As you stare at the lights

All we creatures helplessly attacking repetition
Over, over left with who we are
Did you tell anyone?
Did you tell any place?

Everybody else wanna fall in love
There's no room for love in a modern sky
Living in the era vulgaris
Just drool in the dark
As you stare at the lights

Living in the era vulgaris
Just drool in the dark
As you stare at the lights

Just stare at the lights

    General CommentThis song was about Hollywood. Where josh homme found his inspiration for the album (Era Vulgaris) the dark culture of a shallow civilization

    General CommentOn the "All we creatures" verse you can clearly hear Reznor.

    General CommentAm I the only person who thinks this sounds a lot like Them Crooked Vultures' Spinning in Daffodils?

    General CommentYou know what? I still can't catch the line 'living in the era vulgaris'. It sounds like there is something extra there, but I can't place it. Sounds like 'Living in the Era vul-fucking-garis' or something like that.

    But yes, I love this song.

    General CommentExcellent. Love the way guitars and drums trick (before first chorus).. I don't know why - it's sucha small thing, but..

    Btw.. those sounds at the end remind me Lostzilla ;D
    I wonder if Josh&co are fans of Lost
