They’ll talk about it after dinner
over after dinner drinks
then tie it to the car's antenna
and pray the sinking feeling shrinks
if they make it to see monkey time
it's difficult without a spine
like the yellow bellied jelly fish
they'll try to sneak back into line
erase it from all recall
clear it like the dinner plates
it was autumn was it ever fall
could you tell me what this illustrates
you know me – I’m sugar free
they’ll raise it or they'll post it
while they're lowering the boom
to paraphrase you’re getting closer
meet me in the dining room
I’ll try going easy on you
and try not to leave a scar
oh all right I’m sorry
but not as sorry as you are
erase it from all recall…
It’s the candy-coated soft shoe
in the land of sponge cake men
that whine and dine on ginger bread
then they’re passed out in the den
erase it from all recall…

    General Commentthis song actually isnt about any of that. it's about the post 9-11 feelings people had and how we sugar coat everything (like the way bush never really stated until recently that we were losing the war in iraq). dicky's chastising all of the people who were saying things like "well now I'M gonna go kick bin laden's ass!" and saying that they wont do that, they'll go home and eat dinner and talk about it and everything else that happened just like normal. they wont change anything by being mad. he's basically just showing how we sugar coat everything and then expect it not to hurt as much when we find out the truth.
