Song Meaning
Verse 1
A febrile shocking violent smack
And the children are hoping for a heart attack
Tonight the windows are watching
The streets all conspire
And the lampost can't stop crying
If I could fly high above the world
Would I see a bunch of little dots spell the word stupidity?
Or would I just see hungry lover homicides
Loving brother suicides
And olly olly oxenfrees, who pick a side and hide
Verse 2
The world is scratching at my door
My morning papers got the scores
The human interest stories, and the obituary
Verse 3
Oh yeah, cockroach naps and rattling traps
How many devils can you fit upon a match head?
Caringosity killed the kerouac cat
Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction
Verse 4
In my alley around the corner
There's a wino with feathered shoulders
And a spirit giving head for crack
He'll never want it back
There's a little kid and his family eating
Crackers like thanksgiving
And a pack of wild desperadoes scornful of living
Verse 5
The world is scratching at my door
My morning papers got the scores
The human interest stories, and the obituary
Verse 6
Oh yea, cradle for a cat, Woolf looks back,
How many angels can you fit upon a match?
I want to know why Hemmingway cracked
Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction
Verse 7
Life is the crummiest book I ever read
There isn't a hook, just a lot of cheap shots
Pictures to shock and characters an
Amateur would never dream up
Verse 8
Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction
