Honey, try to cover that, it's so easy
Dress up and make illegal money
Outside the Chinese Picture Theater
People pay to pose with any big character

We say it's safe to move
Shortly, I'm no daisy for the country
And old mother logic suggest we're through
It's obvious, I'm going to play it a through

(Ooo...)

Say you'll consider, if only to quiet me
We'll flirt with the cult of scientology
the test of the stress and genius we took
May yet fell out with that small town crew

And just so you know
The shameless lengths I'll go
My motives start core changes
I try lyrical tact to boot
Of unrequited lust
You said you liked my songs
If only I could have you here
I'd love, love, love
To smack you around the room

Noted the thereto self-conscious and wordy
Another disclaimer
Well, I'd best think about it some

(Ooo...)

    General Commentto be honest, i think this song is pretty random..
    and the subject matter is scattered..
    but still, this may be my favorite song.
    why has no one commented yet?
    well, anywho.
    i believe the first part is about prostitution. there is a girl who will "dress up and make illegal money" dressing up as a big character.. for some reason, i think of marilyn monroe.
    and the parts where they say they'll "flirt with the cult of scientology", and "stress and genius we took may yet fall out with that small town crew", makes me think of a bunch of young folk living in a small town, and they're experimenting with different things and trying to get out of the hellhole that is the small town in which they reside.
    phew. long sentence.
    i'd have to say, my absolute favorite part is,

    And just so you know
    The shameless lengths I'll go
    My motives start core changes
    I try lyrical tact to boot
    Of unrequited lust
    You said you liked my songs
    If only I could have you here
    I'd love, love, love
    To smack you around the room

    it's so gorgeous, especially the part about unrequited lust and shameless lengths. i'm not sure if this is supposed to be a love/lust song about a boy and a girl, but i'd very much like to think it is.

    General CommentThe first verse is about Hollywood. People "make illegal money" by dressing as characters and posing for pictures with tourists in front of the Chinese Theater. Also, the church of Scientology is nearby, where you can take a stress test.
