"Fume" as written by and Beck....
My friend picked me up about quarter past 5
We stopped and got some donuts and we took a little drive
We had a can of nitrous, we rolled the windows up
Now we're breathin' deeply, breathin' deeply

And there's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck
There's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck or what?

We spent many years always tryin to get high
Smokin' broken pencils and beatin' up kids
Talkin' to the devil and drinkin' a coke
Now we're totally rockin', totally rockin'

And there's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck
There's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck or what?

We got a good idea so we pulled off the road
Got some molly hatchet goin' on the stereo
I said, let's roll up the windows, and let the nitrous go
Now we can't stop laughing, can't stop laughing

And there's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck
There's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck is going on.

(Voices in background)
And I really don't think that I know what to do
There's a man in my shoe
Yeah!

And there's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck
There's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck or what?

And there's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck
There's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck or what?

And there's a fume
In this truck
And I don't know if we're dead, or what the fuck

    General Commenthe took this from a newspaper article about two kids who somehow got a can of nitrous, rolled the windows up, breathed deeply... and died. sad, but it happens, and Beck wrote a fabulously sarcastic song about it.

    General CommentI think "talking to the devil and drinking a Coke" is about the funniest line in a song I've ever heard.
