C'mon we're young, we're young
Yet we'll be dead as soon
c'mon we came, we came
from our mother's womb to swoon

Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants
Adopting this young spirit of sin
To make the most, before we turn to ghost
Before, old friend, life's just a means to an end
To make the most, before we turn to ghost

Swig the bottle, bottle
slap the face of Aristotle
race me, race me, race me, race me
in yer fourth and jalopy

Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants
Adopting this young spirit of sin
To make the most, before we turn to ghost
Before, old friend, life's just a means to an end
To make the most, before we turn to ghost

my mother, she said 'you don't delve in taboo'
but mother my moribund will come
when I'm through with taboo

Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants
Adopting this young spirit of sin
To make the most, before we turn to ghost
Before, old friend, life's just a means to an end
To make the most, before we turn to ghost

That sink and pull in the guts
That's this foolhardy flux

    My InterpretationIt seems to me that the overall message can almost be inferred from the title. It is about being young, or embracing the essence of youth. Desire, passion, gratification, impulsiveness, fearlessness, et cetera are hallmarks of youth and the qualities of life cherished in the verses of this song. When I see the title, "Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyant", I tend to think of it as a metaphor for the young (we boys especially). Confident, risk-taking, ostentatious, sexual, wanton, invincible, cocksure, know-it-alls. That sounds about right, doesn't it?

    General CommentI love this song so much! But don'tcha think the background music sounds exactly like the background music to 'over and over' by hot chip?
