Song Meaning
Verse 1
Raise up, shake them lazy bones
Read the T-shirt but still don't understand
Comin' home with a little apocalypse
It comes, now do you have time for this?
Verse 2
A 3-tone carpet and a Jackie Chan spear
Lookin' at a hairdo and a belly full of beer
Well I ain't no poet, ain't got no rhyme
Well I got me a car and I don't know how to drive
Verse 3
In the event of a pressure loss
All our lines are busy now
I will be laughing out loud anyhow
Verse 4
Everyday, a little apocalypse
Lay down, lay down next to this
Lookin' at the body well I don't even know his name
Call me in this morning was a friend of mine
Verse 5
Well the wind so strong, it's blown us all around
Wind so strong, nobody settle down
Ev'ryday another apocalypse
Had a TV but I don't know how deep it is
Verse 6
Please read the print advisory
Would you like to go ahead?
Dancin' wherever she goes tippytoes
Verse 7
Rhetorical
Memorial
Invisible
Incredible
Unstoppable
Emotional
Illogical
Sensational
Verse 8
Little sister gotta take her medicine
Baby brother, gonna do it all again
Runnin' fast but cannot catch the bus
Funny feelin', this is part of us
Verse 9
And you must take your medicine
Getting better everyday
Good for a limited time feelin' fine
Verse 10
We will return your things to you
When it's time for you to leave
So quiet nobody knows tippytoes
