"Hyper Enough" as written by Laura Jane Ballance, James August Wilbur, Jonathan Patrick Wurster and Ralph Lee Mccaughan....
If it weren't for those (laughter guns) you're riding on
You would not exist
If it weren't for the flashlight shining in my face
Maybe I could resist

I think I'm hyper enough as it is
I think I'm hyper enough as it is
I think I'm hyper enough as it is
I think I'm hyper enough

When all our bones and muscles hurt
What's so funny about that?
When you remember a saying you can't relearn
What's so funny about that?

I think I'm hyper enough as it is
I think I'm hyper enough as it is
I think I'm hyper enough as it is
I think I'm hyper enough

And I know you are never wrong
I know you are never wrong
I was not weak but the drink was strong
I know you are never wrong

I think I'm hyper enough as it is
I think I'm hyper enough as it is

    I always thought that it was "master plans" in place of "laughter guns". There is a great chance that I have been thinking the wrong thing, but that is what i always hear and it makes sense to me.

    General Commentoh man, this is fucking great!! From Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. I love this band. I listened to this song for the first time in 1999, i bought the album the next day, everyday of my life i listen this song one time at least, its the perfect song to start the day in a good way, ive been looking for the lyrics all this time and now, at last, ive found it!!! (if you dont speak english, its impossible to understand the lyrics!). Thanks my God, now im really happy!!!
    thanks everybody!!

    General CommentLepidotera, the first line of the song is slurred in every sing le version, often deliberately. There's no definitive answer. The line "laughter guns" is, I believe from the Hyper Enough single. There's a debate between two disc jockey's over the first line, that is one of the suggestions.

    General CommentI'd say this song's about drugs and wanting to do them but knowing it's not worth it.

    Lyric CorrectionGreat song! I'm a very big Superchunk fan (been one since right after 'On the Mouth' came out'). Anyway, the first line is 'lofty currents' (not 'laughter guns'). I'll update the lyrics.

    General CommentThere's a great 42 minute breakdown of this song by some Chapel Hill DJs on 'The Laughter Guns EP'.
