Litter box, professional non-smokers
pricks and a replica kits of red and black yeah
cyclists should ride in designated
bicycle zones, not on the pavement

Two by two European language schools,
they got the same color ruck-sacks on their backs yeah,
uh oh, I know
They got the same color ruck sacks, oh

I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay

Litter box, singer songwriters and symmetrical ticks
and grains of pear blue boxes so so I know

I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay

Litter box, professional non-smokers and
symmetrical ticks and grains of pear blue boxing

I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things and I feel okay
I look through transparent things, I feel okay

    General Commentall the things listed like european language schools, professional non-smokers, litter boxes, are all transparent, superficial things to him. he looks at these things, and it makes him feel better knowing that he's above needlessly tedious crap.

    General CommentHe got used to see things that look like what he's really looking at, I mean, it is not hiding anything, it is... Transparent.

    General CommentHa ha! I would love it if it was "rug sex" but I think it is probably "college rucksacks on their backs".

    General CommentI think the lyrics are more along the lines of:
    cyclists should ride in designated
    bicycle zones and not on the pavement

    Two by two European language schools
    they got the same color ruck-sacks on their backs yeah,
    uh oh, I know
    they got the same color ruck sacks, oh

    A little less mysterious and wierd, but good advice!
