Well I remember the public pool
And all the trash on the ground in the park was cool
All the cigarette butts fought the needles
And all the of stones fought all the beetles
Mirror mirror on the wall
Oh come on that's not me at all
Now who's that handsome animal?
I feel so good I feel six feet fall.

And I kept repeating it to myself
'Til I convinced myself it's true
And everyone you meet is not better than you

Shoguns and Hulk Hogans
And cavemen shouting slogans
Back and forth around the fire
Now connected by a wire

So everyone you meet is you
Divided by what they've been through
The fates fly past beyond control
And make pebbles of our mountain soul

And I kept repeating it to myself
'Til I convinced myself it's true
And everyone you meet is not better than you

And that phone call made my stomach fold
I heard in yr voice a heart so cold
I stumbled back shaking with loss
They said stop calling Santa Claus
I thought my heart's not the kind you break
It's just that certain things are hard to take
But now that I've got it all on tape
I can really figure out its shape

And I kept repeating it to myself
'Til I convinced myself it's true
And everyone you meet is not better than you

And now I take it take it take it day by day
And now I take it take it take it day by day
But it's a lucky coincidence
Because I think it even comes that way

    My InterpretationA chronicle of teenage angst and self-esteem.

    "Stones fought all the beetles" is almost certainly a reference to the musical contrast between the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, both British Invasion bands of the mid to late sixties that defined the taste of a generation's culture and counterculture, even well beyond that time when they were brand new, while "cigarette butts fought the needles" probably refers to the contrast of tobacco smokers versus drug addicts, possibly in terms of what form of litter they would generate in the aforementioned park.

    "Shoguns and Hulk Hogans" might just be a clever rhyme but probably refers to the rising popularity of Japanese media in American teenage subcultures through film and, later, anime, while Hulk Hogan was an iconic wrestler whose career peaked in the eighties and early nineties.
