Up here above the earth seems soft
Seems that people get along
seems a lot to you alone

Tried to hold the fuck on
Sick of fingers in my (?)

(?) same old song
At least I don't just sit there
At least I don't just nod

Some things aren't so bad
Tell me Mr positive
Why am I so bored?
Why am I so sad?

Everything's not shitty(?)

There must be something wrong with us

    General Commenteverything seems obvious
    from here above the earth seems soft,
    seems the people get along,
    seems for once we do belong.

    ah, but a closer look reveals the earth is sticky with our greed.

    try to hold the fuck on,
    stick our fingers in like seeds!

    "coming from a cynic this sounds like the same old song."

    at least i don't just sit there,
    at least i don't just nod.

    (everything's not shitty.)
    no, some things aren't so bad.
    so tell me mr. positive
    why am i so bored?
    why am i so sad?

    [unintelligible whispering]

    (everything's not shitty.)
    the plants, the birds might disagree,
    they sing a tune quite ominous,
    there must be something wrong with us.

    our fingers in the ground,
    our bodies stick straight up like plants,
    our sticky side now showing
    soon we'll be covered in ants.
    and with our skin exposed,
    they'll chew us down to bone
    like six legged architects building fancy homes.

    and
    in
    hindsight
    we, should have maybe prepared for this.
    blame
    it
    all
    on
    he, who distracts us with shiny things.

    so i say we look at this in a brand new light:
    for the time being at least we are alive...

    a metaphysical being on a hell of a track tried to shoot for the moon but got last and came back.
    with a set of chipped teeth and a chip on his shoulder. tried to get on with his life but his life it was over.

    (the planets met up for a drink and decided to fuck with this one.)

    so a broken spirited man with nowhere to go tried to shoot himself dead but the bullet swung low. ripped out all of his teeth and part of his tongue. tried to do it again but couldn't pick up the gun.

    (the planets turned on the tv and had a laugh or two on him.)

    we all end up bone,
    we all end up rot,
    it's the travels that we take,
    that make it worth while.
    we all end up deep, deep under the dirt,
    it's the things you will see that give life its worth.
    _____________

    there you go, people. good god.

    General CommentWhy would you even post this up if you had no clue about so much of it? It's ridiculous. Wish there was some way to report this crap and get it off of here.

    General CommentMy only problem with keereerar's interpretation is the lines:
    the plants, the birds might disagree,
    they sing a tune quite ominous,

    I dunno about you but I hear clearly, "The presidents might disagree, they say it's all quite obvious,"
    Maybe I'm wrong, decide for yourselves.
