Lump Lyrics

Lump sat alone in a boggy marsh
Totally motionless except for her heart
Mud flowed up into Lump's pajamas
She totally confused all the passing piranhas

She's Lump, she's Lump
She's in my head
She's Lump, she's Lump, she's Lump
She might be dead

Lump lingered last in line for brains
And the one she got was sort of rotten and insane
Small thing's so sad that birds could land
Is Lump fast asleep or rocking out with the band?

She's Lump, she's Lump
She's in my head
She's Lump, she's Lump, she's Lump
She might be dead

Lump was limp and lonely and needed a shove
Lump slipped on a kiss and tumbled into love
She spent her twenties between the sheets
Life limped along at subsonic speeds

She's Lump, she's Lump
She's in my head
She's Lump, she's Lump, she's Lump
She might be dead

Is this Lump out of my head, I think so
Is this Lump out of my head, I think so, yeah
Is this Lump out of my head, I think so
Is this Lump out of my head . . .

ALrite guys check this out..its a simple little story hes telling...Lump in the dictionary means "Stupid"...so lump is refering to a girl, who he repeats as stupid, i guess trying to offend her. A boggy marsh is basically a plain peace of flat land that is very low so it gets covered with water often or all the time....with that explained you can get that the first verse is about a girl who was laying in some kind of pawn wich he states as a marsh. thats all shes doin, just laying there, the only thing that was moving was her heart. After that in the second verse it talks about how she "lingered last in line for brains"...saying she finally got the brains to move, she was slow to do it...but she did it. the third verse talks about how she found someone she loved and her life moved on.....the chorus and the ending makes more sense when you substitute "lump" for "stupid"....

She's STUPID, she's STUPID She's in my head She's STUPID, she's STUPID, she's STUPID She might be dead

Is this STUPID GIRL out of my head, I think so Is this STUPID GIRL out of my head, I think so, yeah Is this STUPID GIRL out of my head, I think so Is this STUPID GIRL out of my head . .

It can be the he gave us a story that metaphorically has meaning (LIKE "i come from the water" by the toadies)....so i can see it being a party girl who finally stoped partying and moved on in life.

i say brain tumor, boggy marsh is his brain, he says he is insane, etc., just my veiw on it.

it's like a therapy course.

Not sure if this was already said (sorry if it was), but someone said "she totally confused all the passing piranhas" meant she confused all the people she used to party with. I personally think the meaning is more literal, that the piranhas were confused because they couldn't tell if she was alive or dead. Whatever it means, it's an awesome song... but it being about a penis? Seriously, people, come on! That's just sad.

Song Meaning

@LifeInBinary The likely scenario is that she was drunk and passed out, and pale enough to beg the question if she's alive or dead, but not pale enough for a person to be sure she's dead.

@LifeInBinary Perhaps...I remember hearing that song at work in the 1990's, (that wouldn't be allowed today), one of my male co-workers started singing along to it, but changed the words to, "She's drunk, she's drunk, she's drunk, I've got her in bed."

I'm sorry, but I prefer Weird Al's parody ending to the real one.

so does the band...they've played Weird Al's ending for years.

i thought it was about some slutty groupie sleepin with the band (spent here 20s between the sheets). The singer can't forget about her. Then, some guy that the slut sleeps with, kills her (leaves her in the boggy marsh), and then the band can forget about her (lump out of my head.

yes epp88 is correct thank you epp88 for clearing these guys from their necrophilatic and penis fantisies about this song

This song is about a brain tumor in submission, no doubt about it.

It was written about someone who had a brain tumor as a child and it was removed. The rest of the song is their fear that the tumor is still there. This person is now 30 something and fears there is a small lump waiting for its opportune time to grown cancerous again.

Pft, ya'll are stupid. This is obviously about his zombie imaginary friend that his therapist cures him of.

Lump sat alone in a boggy marsh Totally emotionless except for her heart Mud flowed up into lump's pajamas She totally confused all the passing piranhas

,A unhappily married woman sits in her loveless marriage. ,Having no emotions except for loneliness ,The dirt in her life threatens to stain her so everyone can see ,All of her lovers can’t understand why she stays with this man.

She's lump, she's lump She's in my head She's lump, she's lump she's lump She might be dead

,She's lump, she's lump ,She is in my every thought ,She's lump, she's lump, she's lump ,She is totally blind to the true love we could share.

Lump lingered last in line for brains And the one she got was sorta rotten and insane Small things so sad that birds could land Is lump fast asleep or rockin' out with the band?

,This woman is not a rocket scientist ,The brains that she does have aren’t used to their greatest potential ,She has many reasons to leave her marriage ,Can she not see these things or is she playing with all of her lovers hearts?

She's lump, she's lump She's in my head She's lump, she's lump, she's lump She might be dead

Lump was limp and lonely and needed a shove Lump slipped on a kiss and tumbled into love She spent her twenties between the sheets Life limped along at sub-sonic speeds

,She was really lonely and needed help to leave her husband ,She found a new lover

I used to hear the lyrics way wrong. It actually sounded like a grotesque song about a girl beaten to a bloody pulp and that's what "lump" registered to me.

The guy is talking about once knowing a girl he thought wasn't very smart, slept around, did drugs and lacked any sense of morals and self control. He's imagining she might be dead already, or close to being dead, or if she's really having the time of her life. But she could be settled down. He had a sort of crush on her but didn't like the path she was going. He came back into her life to help her. And she realized that he actually cared for her, unlike the others, so she decided to settle down and no longer felt the need to have sex all the time. She just wanted to clean up, start excelling through life. The guy stopped referring her as "Lump" and that persona he gave her was gone.

is it just me, or does it sound like the guy is talking about his penis?
