"Whatever Happened to Soy Bomb" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
Blue light is flickering
Through the city streets
One billion TV sets
Glowing off concrete
One day closer to death
I know that I don't have too long
Whatever happened to soy bomb

Lunch box collector loves all the pussycats
But when he goes to bed
He wonders where he's at
Thrift store shirts and old haircuts
Living in an old sitcom
Whatever happened to soy bomb

The day is coming when you'll have to think of it
Was it really worth it
All that shit

Blue light is flickering
Through the cloudy sky
On billion lonely hearts
Beat until they die
One day closer to death
I know that I don't have too long
Whatever happened to soy bomb

    General Comment"When asked about the inspiration for disc two's "Whatever Happened To Soy Bomb," Everett says, "The only reasonable answer to the title's question is 'who cares?' This was the 'performance artist' that invited himself onstage during Bob Dylan's performance on an awards show, gyrating with the meaningless words SOY BOMB written on his chest. There was no point. It wasn't punk. It wasn't Andy Kaufman. It wasn't even Jarvis Cocker storming Michael Jackson's performance, which at least had some point to it. Maybe I'm just an old railroad man, but it seemed like a sign of the stupid times we live in and it makes me long for a more dignified time." "

    General CommentSoy Bomb was something that happened at an awards ceremony, it was supposed to be performance art but it didn't have real meaning to it, so the idea of the song is that all these things are happening in our lives that don't have any meaning and what we have to do is try to find some sort of meaning in our lives and sort through all the stuff we do that doesn't matter.

    General CommentPeople need to see meaning in things that aren't really that deep. Maybe this site could be an example of that, who knows?

    General CommentThis songs speaks volumes about how I feel right now. Soy Bomb was the name of a band I was in when I was 14/15 (early to mid 1998), so the line about "Whatever happened to Soy Bomb?" Has paticular meaning for me beyond the standard meaning.
