i joined a gym,
although its not punk at all,
but i gotta look good and lower my cholesterol.
there's one girl i want to notice me.
i'll have a slightly better chance if my body is buff you see.
i'm being obsessive, B-E obsessive.
her name is enya, for her, im running this mile,
and it will upset my parents that i am stalking a gentile.
i'm willing to do anything, i'll be her slave.
there's only one word difference in "new age" and "new wave".
we can sing it enya, your synthesizer or mine,
it's all the same,
and doesn't enya goren oronoco flow,
like the perfect name?
so i joined a gym with my dad,
we were both scared,
and it's always pretty weird seeing your dad in his underwear.
at the universal machine,
i put the weight at 1 lbs. you see,
i bench the thing up and down real fast and everybody envies me.
you don't even know me enya, and i've only seen your face on the cover of your cd.
i'm waiting for you enya, so please enya wait for me.
your heart could fall for mine if you let it,
i wrote you a love letter did you get it?
though i know this might sound strange,
if you don't like who i am, maybe i can change.

    General Commentha ha.. atom is a funny little goat nugget.. a really catchy tune about irish songstress enya... i guess she's irish?
    anyway, he's lookin through the eyes of a teen when they see someone that's beautiful, and popular, and impossible to get. also the music side fits in, kinda like britney spears etc.

    "it shows he's really smart" you say

    "At the time, he was in the last year of earning his B.A. in neuroscience at Wesleyan University. While Goren was still in school, a friend introduced him to music sequencers, and he began writing music with one in his spare time. Goren would also go on to earn a Master's degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania, and to become certified to teach high school chemistry and biology."
