(when the fat man shaving in the Pullman washroom
grunts, "what's this?")

leave me on the moon
I must be coming back too soon
pieces of pieces laying upon
somebody's walking on my hands
leave me on the moon
everybody knows it's true
everything is good as long it's stays still
coins jingle in my brain

you've been watching me
through your jewelry
sending rings around my hands
now that I'm near you
I slowly disappear you
your fingernails are much too long

leave me on the moon
you can stay there too
seems like everybody's just
floating away
while I tie myself down
while I tie my.....

    General Commentthe lyrics i have for this song are as follows:
    leave me on the moon
    i must be coming back too soon
    pieces of pieces lay in a pile
    somebody's walkin on my hands

    leave me on the moon
    and everybody knows it's true:
    everything's good, as long as it stays still
    coins jingle in my brain

    and you been watchin me
    through your jewelry
    sending rings around my head
    now that i am near you,
    i slowly disappear you
    then your fingernails are much to long

    leave me on the moon
    and you can stay there too
    seems like everyone's just
    floating away!

    gotta tie myself down
    gotta tie my
    self right down

    General Commenti think this song is pretty awesome. the instrumentation and style of musical writing, the way the guy's singing, and the words together make a random-ass mess. The words in particular are a bunch of sublime rambling bullshit, but there's just enough unity that, if you want, you can imagine that the singer (i mean the guy beck portrays, and yeah i think it's fair to say there is one) isn't rambling on purpose, but trying to convey something real to him. maybe this is what beck had in mind, i don't know. it's kind of like Fume, but a lot less morbid (I find Fume to be disturbing actually), and in the first place it probably doesn't have a real-world basis.
