lyrics

there's great big pile of rust sitting out on the lawn
something like a car something like a...
we spend our days and nights just wondering what...
what it, what, we could have been

do you yearn for the summer of seventy-six?
what century? what century? oh! ambiguity
if you could only be a little more precise...
damned memory, damn tragedy, oh! futility

there's great big pile of rust sitting out on the lawn
something like a car something like a...
we spend our days and nights just wondering what...
what it, what, we could have been

hopelessly straining our eyes on a crystal ball
what do we see? what do we see? oh! a mystery
if only there was a little bit more to go on
damned apathy, damn history, to clarity...

to clarity!

we'll summon everyone that claims a third eye
psychics, soothsayers, and cargo-cultists alike

watch the skies for a clear sign from above
what validity? what validity? oh! faithfully
to someday recall what we've chosen to forget
damned memory, damn apathy oh! misery

Somehow, it worked. Well.

tGDM believed that massive amplification was ALWAYS the answer.
