Can't sleep thinking about it

Rubbing stones together until the magic comes out,
Embracing the purity, the purity of obscurity,
Try to capture the name as it spins in your mind,
Follow it with our eyes,
The dizzy epiphany discovered an artifact of my own,
It's the little things that get us through life,

Squishing flesh together until the magic comes out,
Until we both ejaculate ride the wave
As a little dies, the orgasmic of the fantastic,
We well up, and then we explode!
It's the little things that get us through life,

I need a little escape

Burning plants together until the magic comes out,
Take it in the inhalate, inhalate what escalates,
Hold the vapor deep down inside the toxic fumes,
Initiate the levitate,
We slowly start to drift off,
It's the little things that get us through life

    I think the first verse is about records. Vinyl, you know? Some lines, not so much, but the "purity of obscurity" and the line about "try to capture the name as it spins" or whatever, it all makes me think of records and record players. And I know a few of the guys in this band are obsessed with record collecting. Haha.

    Before introducing the song on "Coke Sucks, Drink Pepsi": "This song goes out to anyone who collects records."

    What an awesome song. It seems to be about the little pleasures in life. The second verse is about sex and the last is about smoking weed. I'm not sure what the first is about though.

    Black albinos are hunted by other africans for their purported magical properties. Which, of course, is bogus. The singer is straight edge, so I guess the lyrics are about chasing "fake highs". Compare the song to David Comes To Life, which could be interpreted as a story about a man who uses drugs as a shortcut to a higher conscience.

    Ehhh, I disagree. The first verse could be interpreted to be about record collecting, even by Fucked Up's own admission, but it is actually about man's inventive nature or problem solving skills (science). "Rubbing stones together" is how we made fire and got out of the dark ages- using our imagination. "Try to capture the name as it spins in your mind" could reference a spinning record, but more likely tries to describe the abstract idea of thought. It is a continuation of the Hidden World concept from their first album. An imagine in one's mind crossing through the hidden world into symbolic speech- giving something a name. I will agree that record players were created using human thinking so it does make sense, but indirectly.

Just listening for the 784,654th time....and it's just perfect in every way. Just incredible. The only reason it was remade was to scoop up a boatload of money from a more modern and accepting audience. But it is a completely different song than the other one that sounds slapped together in a few takes without a thought for the meaning. This song captivates me still, after 50+ years. Takes me to the deep South and the poverty of some who lived thru truly hard times. And the powerful spirit of a poor young girl being abandoned to her future with only a red dress and her wits to keep her alive. She not only stayed alive, she turned her hard beginnings around, became self sufficient, successful and someone with respect for herself. She didn't let the naysayers and judgers stop her. She's the one sitting in the drivers seat at the end. So, not a song about a poor girl, but a song of hope and how you can rise up no matter how far down you started. There is a huge difference between a singer who simply belts out a song that is on a page in front of them, and someone who can convey an entire experience with their voice. Telling not just a story with words, but taking you inside it and making you feel like you are there, with their interpretation.
