"Jed The Humanoid" as written by and J Lytle....
Last night something pretty bad happened
We lost a friend (we lost a friend)
All shocked and broken (all shocked and broken)
Shutdown, exploded (shutdown, exploded)

Jeddy 3 is what we first called him
Then it was Jed (then it was Jed)
Now Jeds systems dead (Jeds systems dead)
Therefore so's Jed (therefore so's Jed)

We assembled him in the kitchen
Made out of this end (made out of this and)
Made out of that end (made out of that and)
Whatever was at hand (whatever was at hand)

When we finished Jed we were so proud
We celebrated (we celebrated)
We congratulated (we congratulated)
At what we'd created (what we'd created)

Jed could run or walk, sing or talk and,
Complile thoughts and (complile thoughts and)
Solve lots of problems (solve lots of problems)
We learned so much from him (learned so much from him)

A couple years went by something happened
We gave Jed less attention (gave less attention)
We had new inventions (had new inventions)
Left for conventions (left for conventions)

Jed had found booze and drank every drop
He fizzled and popped (He fizzled and popped)
He rattled and knocked (He rattled and knocked)
And finally he just stopped (And finally he just stopped)

    General CommentI really love how Grandaddy/Jason Lytle songs give everyone a totally different experience... Not many songs do that yet almost everyone of his does, amazing.

    Just to throw it out there, maybe it is just a song about a new invention that gets depressed as newer inventions take away the initial attention it received... Ultimately leading to its suicide. Anyway you look at it the song is beautiful.

    General Commentthis song is beautiful surprised only 3 comments...although it seems silly singing such a pretty sad song about a "humanoid" i think it could be interpretted as losing someone you drifted away from, or jed could even be a metaphor for childhood...as they grew up (made new inventions) their childhood innocence is killed by alcohol and such

    General CommentI just always assumed this was a imaginary friend from childhood, and eventually they gave him less attention and he just disappeared.

    General CommentI thought this song had to do with a person that a bunch of people used for their own amusement. They weren't really his friends, but Jed believed it was so. When his 'friends' move on and find a new 'humanoid' to make fun of/use for their own amusement. When Jed realizes this he just turns to alcohol and eventually kills himself (maybe drinking is a factor).

    That's why he was 'shocked' and 'broken' and why he 'exploded'. He's a humanoid because to the others, he is nothing but an object.

    General Commenti really really love this song.

    it reminds me of parents. they have this baby, this wonderful baby that they love so much and they're all so happy together. but then the parents get busy with their lives and their doings and they lose interest in their child. the child resorts to drinking and what have you and just finally. . .yeah.

    its such a sad and beautiful song.

    General CommentI'm not commenting on the meaning, but if you play backwards that unintelligible human-like voice at the end of the song, he says "he's a--he is a person now. [something]." That "something" is unintelligible to me, but sounds like "he's high now."

    I thought it was interesting...
