"Silver Trembling Hands" as written by Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd and Michael Ivins....
She keeps feeling for the blindfold
She keeps wishing for the secret society
To fall
She keeps watching for the jaguar
With the silver trembling hand
She forgets about the fear

When she's high
When she's high
When she's high
When she's high

She puts diamonds on her forehead
They remind her how the animals and
Trees and insects call
Is it wrong not to believe
Nature makes us all compete
Night fight
She forgets about the fear

When she's high
When she's high
When she's high
When she's high

    and your convinced of the Hex
    and [of course] that's the difference between us"

    My Interpretation[she's constantly trying to lift the veil, the blindfolds we are given at birth, by our parents, our leaders, our society, to "look ahead, and do as we're told"]
    [by the secrets that govern our daily grind, the things we don't even realize that lead us]
    [she keeps watching for enemies, for people who will hurt her]
    [with her trembling hands, and a cold, steel dagger]
    [but she forgets about her fears]
    [when she's high]

    [she reminds herself that she is one with all of life: animals, plants, and insects]
    (i like at this part, when he suggests how our ancient inner monkeys call:
    "Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo. Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo, ahhhhh")
    [is it so bad to believe that nature didn't make us all into these beings, capable of great evil?
    [we kill and suck life from others in order to sustain our own: we are all daggers]
    [but she forgets about this fear]
    [when she's high]

    (high on life and love and goodness, or high on drugs)
    (either way, she sounds bi-polar or manic/depressive)
