"Matter Vs Space" as written by and Kurosky....
Nose down, what you gonna do when
Parties fade and your makeup starts to smear
Only scene is a grand entrance
Silver screen is another brand new year

In a sea of talcum power
Kids swim and they lose their color
Clock strikes twelve
Say, don't ya feel so well?

As the confetti falls
Timed with the tears
No one wants to hear
about your hardwood floors

In stalls of the magic markers
Boys and girls come and go like coats of paint
All you've got is a pretty name
You shouldn't be killed off in the very first scene

On the porch with the smokers
Party talk gets much older
Clock strikes twelve
Say, don't ya feel so well?

As the confetti falls
Timed with the tears
No one wants to hear
about your hardwood floors

    General CommentI believe the song goes like this:
    Nose down, whatcha gonna do when,
    Parties fade and your make-up starts to smear,
    Only scene is a grand entrance,
    Silver screen is another brand new year,
    In a sea of talcum powder,
    Kids swim and they lose their color,
    Clock strikes twelve,
    Say dontcha feel so well?
    As the confetti falls,
    Timed with the tears,
    No one wants to hear,
    About your hardwood floors,
    Installs of the magic markers,
    Boys and girls come and go like coats of paint,
    All you got is a pretty name you're,
    Short of being killed off in the very first scene,
    On the porch with the smokers,
    Party talk gets much older,
    Clock strikes 12, say dontcha feel so well?
    As the confetti falls,
    Timed with the tears,
    No one wants to hear,
    About your hardwood floors.

    General CommentVullNoid has got the lyrics right for sure. Whoever did the original was so far off it's quite hysterical.
    This song isn't to complex, just about a Hollywood type of setting with movies/big parties( New Years).
    A Very good CD but at the moment Yoko is my favorite.
