Too much carbon monoxide for me to bear
Too much carbon monoxide for me to bear
Where's the air?
Where's the air?
Where's the, where's the, where's the air?
After car after bus after car after truck
After this my lungs will be so fucked up
I wish I was in that Mercedes Benz
Sealed away from my scents
I'd have the music high going ninety five
Too much too much too much too much

Too much carbon monoxide for me to bear
Too much carbon monoxide for me to bear
Don't you care?
Don't you care?
Don't you, don't you, don't you care?
After car after bus after car after truck
After this my lungs will be so fucked up
I wish I wasn't just a pedestrian
Breathing all this in
I look up at that grey sky
It makes me want to (oh)
Too much too much too much
Too much carbon monoxide for me to bear.

    General CommentIt's not really about pollution. -_- When has cake ever been that easy, unless they were covering another song?

    "I wish I was in that Mercedes-Benz
    Sealed away from my sins"

    "I wish I wasn't just a pedestrian
    Breathing all this in"

    I'm just taking a guess, but it seems to have something to do with the rich and the poor. Or maybe even how corrupt society is (the same thing as the pollution idea, but a little more general), and that he wishes he were rich and he didn't have to worry about the sins of humanity.

    *shrugs*
    Maybe I'm over-analyzing it, but the sins line seems to lead me to believe that it isn't just about air pollution, even if that may be what inspired the song.
