"Buddha Rhubarb Butter" as written by Michael Doughty, Sebastian Steinberg, Mark Degliantoni and Yuval Gabay....
As for my single self I had as life not be as live
To be in awe of such a thing as I myself.

As for my own concern I had as think to think
As keep on thinking not so hard as for the brain to burn.

And at the salad bar a man he stares into the croutons
Hypnotized by powers of the Bac-O-Bits.

And I expose myself to stimuli
Unfit for people outside the controls of an experiment.

    General CommentPerhaps it's about a man being stoned? The lyrics seem to be in the nonsensical looping train of thought of a stoned person. Not that I would know anything about being stone. Nope.

    General CommentThe Lust in Phaze album thingy says that the first part, "As for my single self I had as lief not be as live to be in awe of such a thing as I myself" is derived from a speech in Shakespeare's Julius Cesar if that interests anyone.

    General CommentThe song is an ode to alliteration, pure and simple.

    Buddha Rhubarb Butter. It makes no sense, but it's damn alliterative.

    Song Meaning"The song is an ode to alliteration, pure and simple."

    Sorry, but no.

    Buddha Rhubarb is slang for Marijuana. The lines are the thoughts of a pot head.

    This line: "As for my single self I had as lief not be as live to be in awe of such a thing as I myself." is representative of how many pot heads feel as though they are deep, philosophical thinkers when high, but really are thinking nonsense.

    This line: "As for my own concern I had as think to think as keep on thinking not so hard as for the brain to burn." is about being too high to concentrate.

    "And at the salad bar a man he stares into the croutons hypnotized by powers of the Bac-O-Bits." Food and simple things (e.g. "My hands are HUGE.") can be highly amusing, entertaining, or astounding to pot heads.

    Finally, "And I expose myself to stimuli unfit for people outside the controls of an experiment." I figure to mean a few possible things. There are lots of studies done on THC (the active chemical in Marijuana) in which participants are dosed and then exposed to various stimuli to gauge their reactions. It could also mean he likes to experiment with different things while high, like licking batteries or watching "The View".
