"Chewin' the Apple of Your Eye" as written by and Wayne/ivins Coyne....
Hey what were ya thinking
When they were starting the show
Yeah, I was there
But I didn't care at all
I was trying to find you
When you got lost in the crowd
'Cause I'm drunk all the time
I like your helium voice

There was a guy in the seat next to mine
Watching the girls when the cops made us stand in line

Yea, so if it's sad
Well you still gotta live till ya die
Man, everyone's chewing the apple you got in your eye

It's like at the circus
When you get lost in the crowd
Your happy but nervous
Definite sign that you've lost it

There was a guy in the seat next to mine
Watching the girls when the cops made us stand in line

    General CommentEvery lyric site has said this, and I swear it's wrong. Is he really saying "I Like Your Helium voice?" To me, it's always sound like "healing", and I can't hear an M on there. Granted, either way it might make some sense... 'cause he's drunk all the time.

    I do love this song though.

    General Commenthe definitely says "helium voice"

    I really love this song. You can relate to it in so many ways. Then there's that erie note in the background that really just eats at you the whole time it plays. its perfect.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who goes to a flaming lips concert. They aren't really a fan of the band or familiar with their music, they went with their friend or significant other and got separated from them. The person feels sad and out of place but decides to make the best of it.

    General CommentIt's about finding your soulmate. You're both born into a crazy show that is life. He doesn't really care, he just wants to find her, but she got caught up in the crazy world. The guy next to him watching the girls is to show that the guy doesn't even look at the girls in life as they pass by cuz all he cares about is his girl. This girl has beautiful innocent eyes, but as she goes through this crazy life people "chew the apple of her life" and take her innocence away.
