Tinseltown is coming like a giant bleeding heart,
and I'm so mad, well these kids try to be funny man.
Well I don't think it's happened much,
so we must destroy your art,
and you'll be glad that you stopped sinning,
and stopped caring about trying to do
new things are a dream that every single person has,
and it's not real.
well I know I'm not too well equipped,
But things go by so quickly I can scarcely stop to grasp
the things I'm feelin now, and I don't doubt
that everyone can feel it too.

Everything is happenin' so fast
(Everything is happenin so fast)
Everything is happenin so fast
(Everything is happenin so fast)

Nature is to blame for the things we cannot tame
so let's destroy it. Oh.
I don't know about you,
but I feel like a barbarian man, stop me if you can.
When the poison drips,
to create the same type of graph,
available at your fingertips,
when the poison drips.

Everything is happenin so fast
(Everything is happenin so fast)
Everything is happenin so fast
(Everything is happenin so fast)
Everything is happenin so fast
(Everything is happenin so fast)
Everything is happenin so fast
(Everything is happenin so fast)

    Lyric CorrectionTinseltown is coming like a giant bleeding heart
    And I'm so mad!
    Well, these kids try to be funny, man
    But I don't think it's happened much so we must destroy your art
    And you'll be glad that you stopped sinning, and stopped carin' about trying to do
    New things are a dream that every single person has
    But it's not real
    Well, I know I'm not too eloquent!
    But things go by so quickly I can scarcely stop to grasp the things I'm feelin' now, and I don't doubt that everyone can feel it too

    Everything is happenin' so fast!
    (Everything is happenin' so fast)
    Everything is happenin' so fast!
    (Everything is happenin' so fast)

    Nature is to blame for the things we cannot tame, SO LET'S DESTROY IT!
    Oh.
    I don't know about you but I feel like a barbarian, man, stop me if you can!
    When the poison drips... do you create the same type of graph available at your fingertips
    When the poison drips... it drips

    Everything is happenin' so fast!
    (Everything is happenin' so fast)
    Everything is happenin' so fast!
    (Everything is happenin' so fast)
    Everything is happenin' so fast!
    (Everything is happenin' so fast)
    Everything is happenin' so fast!
    (Everything is happenin' so fast)

    General CommentI think its about the state of America, the U.S. part mostly.

    Movie stars treated like gods or something. Destruction of the arts through corporation or media censoring or other means. Nature, human and all others, are being abused and made sick or none existent...

    The collective consciousness is sick...Everyone can feel it on some level...its like knowing a landslide is coming and there is no getting out of its way.

    General CommentI love the Super Mario World sound in the background. The wavy-uneasy ambience adds significanly to the meaning!

    My Opinioni think its about the way everything has become soo cheapened.
    i think the
    "so we must destroy your art,
    and you'll be glad that you stopped sinning,
    and stopped caring about trying to do
    new things are a dream that every single person has,
    and it's not real.
    well I know I'm not too well equipped,"
    part is about trying to make new art and music sometimes being an artist you feel like everythings been done.

    andd i think the
    "Nature is to blame for the things we cannot tame
    so let's destroy it. Oh.
    I don't know about you,
    but I feel like a barbarian man, stop me if you can" part
    is about people destroying the earth and pollution and how wrong a turn mankind has made

    and "When the poison drips,
    to create the same type of graph,
    available at your fingertips" is saying when the bad things start to happen from all mistakes weve made does it chart the same graph that was available at our finger tips in the first place
    lol thats my lonnng-ass opinion

    Song MeaningI think this song is just simply about how we have these ideas about our lives and we look forward to it as something really far away, and everything just happens. We aren't really given enough time to prepare ourselves, and we become confused, impulsive, and angry.
