"Van Occupanther" as written by Tim Smith, Paul Alexander, Eric Nichelson, Mckenzie Smith and Eric Pulido....
I must be careful now in my steps
Years of calculations and the stress
My science is waiting, nearly complete
One glass will last for nearly a week

Let me not get down if I'm walking with no one
And if I stumble from exhaustion
These buckets are heavy, I've filled them with water
I could ask these people, but I shouldn't bother

Oh no, I've stumbled, was I going too fast?
Some get angry and some of them laugh
They told me I wouldn't, but I found an answer
I'm Van Occupanther, I'm Van Occupanther

[Chorus x2:]
Let me not be too consumed with this world
Sometimes I want to go home
And stay out of sight for a long time

    General CommentIf you listen to Midlake's interview at SoundOpinions.net they discuss how the band came up with the name Van Occupanther.

    Basically they all created names on the spot to be goofy when leaving a message etc for one another, and one of them was Van Occupanther.
