Selfless man slip by my side
Uttering words about the turning tide, and
She slowly furnishes my continuous ride
Towards insanitary bits of hide
Hair quite long and lavender-dyed
Split nostrils are green open wide
Velvet breasts with crimson legs astride
Uttering words about a turning tide
And she asks me can I ever provide
Transparent radiation
Transparent radiation
Oh, radiation
Transparent radiation

My liquid head open to the rain
I walk through a bushel and a peck of grain
I hear in my ear a hurricane
And speak to the man about a train
Touch with my hand an aeroplane
Eyes wide open on the coast of Maine
Red signs outside which I contain
Some sensuality that I can't explain, ah
Some sensuality that I can't explain
Transparent radiation
Transparent radiation
Oh, radiation
Transparent radiation

Tables bearing the fruits of Lent
Styrofoam people quite violent
Clear light blowing right out of my tent
Ozone over our continent
Expert men not knowing what they meant
They all eat babies for nourishment
Funny bird with her forehead bent
Slogans tell me that I can rent
Ah, yes they tell me that I can rent
Transparent radiation
Transparent radiation
Oh, radiation
Transparent radiation

Uttering words about a turning tide

Some sensuality that I can't explain

Transparent radiation
Transparent radiation
Oh, radiation
Transparent radiation

Ozone over our continent

Yes they’re tellin’ me that I can rent

Transparent radiation
Oh, radiation

    General CommentI came down from a DMT trip last night and this song was playing on my laptop, however in my frazzled state it sounded as if they were singing in an alien language.

    holy_roller, honestly, I don't see how anyone believes David Icke and that reptillian nonsense. All of the so-called "proof" that I've ever come across is badly edited youtube videos.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs ever, my favorite by spacemen 3, i think its amazing what they did with this cover, changed it so much, yet stayed true to the original song, amazing.

    General Commenta great one. it's about coming 'tide' to me (check out the video "turning of the tide" by mr. david icke).
