Ed is a portal
Ed is a portal
And damned if we don't try

To sort of relinquish the reigns our
Brains their mass has gravity
Pulls us into and away from
Portals such as Fractal Ed's
Mysterioso displacement
Proportioned anti subtle bubble
Gun unarmed the torsos run but they
Cannot grasp, they're brainless foot fast

Past and present
Large and lovely
Static quagmire
Lonely loco
Taco truck of
Mind space plosives

Pliable and potable
Refillable reusable

Ed is a portal
Ed is a portal
And damned if we don't try

Now don't start that shit
That pit-er-pat bit bout
Shamanistic shaker spells and
Alpha beta grammar slides
Water belly floppy drivin
Stoneless skippin' Brother John the
Headless one bathes Baby J the
Chosen one a portal dripped down
From the sun, portals dripping

Ballooning relief
(The) mountains are steep and

Our feet are wet
But then not yet

Our bellies changin' like
Leaves arranged and
Sent to loved ones
Once marked they've begun
To delineate and define space
Gracious gracefully we face up
To leaking sons and
Laser beam guns but

(Primordial mantelope)

Primordial man, the antelope hunter
Made his weapons out of sticks
Thinking drinking from the sun
Her moonbeams birth mercurial babies
Antelopes run free and the sea it returns me

To all of the places that I have known

Now that my body's grown the lonely heart poetry
Droning in hearts becomes songs that all objects
Sing to each other like friends telling stories

It's all the same story
And Ed is a portal

The immorals gently awaken
All possibilities open
Unto one another
And brothers and sisters begin
To see truly through strata

    General CommentI think "ed" is short for education.
    Just think about if it this song was about education.

    General Commentbest song in 2007.
    oh...by the way...I don't have any idea of what the lyrics mean and I'm not sure they have a meaning in the first place.

    great, addicting song, though.

    General CommentThe last verse should say 'immortals' not 'immorals'. i think thats an important thing to know if you want to get the full effect of the song

    General CommentMaybe I'm being a bit romantic with the meaning but here's my take: Ed's a drug dealer. It makes a lot of sense when you listen to it from that pov. People cut on that idea all the time. But I think the band members get high probably a lot for creative purposes. Not just to light up to kill time. You have to respect that. I'm curious to see if anyone agrees with that.

    Song MeaningIt's a dream of a collective unconscious springing forth into consciousness that I think humanity strives towards.

    A realization of man's past as antelope hunter, present as scientifically enlightened being with laser guns, and potential future in the stars that can only be achieved if we begin to see one another not as Jews or Arabs or Americans or Syrians or Africans but as human beings that once used to be able to simply dance around a bonfire.

    In other words, throw off the chains of the abstractions that separate us, and begin to live in the world of possibilities that exists if such a world becomes true. Humankind living as brothers and sisters, seeing through strata.

    Damned if we don't try!
