There is a little insect
Not many people see
He's known to all the insects
As the L.S. Bumble Bee

So when you hear him coming
Just throw away your tea
That psychodelic humming
Will mean you'll soon be free!

The Bee is coming!
I can hear the humming
Of the bubbly
L.S. Bum Bum Bum Bumble Bee

Now it's time to fly
Out of your mind
And into the sky
With me

I fly to the land
Where my hands can see
And my eyes can walk
And the mountains talk }x2

I hear with my knees
Run with my nose
Smell with my feet
My mouth is a rose

Aahhh (x4)

I can hear the hum
Of the bubbly
L.S. Bum Bum Bum Bumble Bee

Take a little sip
From the tasty lips
Of the L.S. Bumble Bee

Aaaaahhhh (x9)

I hear with my knees
Run with my nose
Smell with my feet
My heart is a rose

Aaahhh (x2)

Bum (x7) Bumble {x2

The L.S. Bum Bum Bumble Bee

Come on, that's better

    I just wanted to add that this is a Peter Cook/Dudley Moore cover. If you like Death by Chocolate check out the real 60's stuff, it's far out!

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
