lyrics

He was a doozy, he'd knock you dead with charm
She was a floozy so she naturally dove into his arms
(I bet their kids will look divine)
It was about that time I shut the TV set
and started wondering if life was just a joke I didn't get
(Waiting for the punchline)

| Where is the punchline, where is the twist?
| Is there a deeper truth or is there just a gist?
| There are a thousand stories I would tell if they were true
| and a million thoughts I've never had if life is deja vu
| Why don't we give it a twist?
| 'Cause I am through with this

I got to drinking; what else was there to do?
I got to thinking we're just metaphors from someone's point of view
(Just lines in conversation)
Through one-way mirrors through which we may not see
Our mastermind peers in and probes our cosmic surreality
(It's time to go to sleep)

I drew the blinds and stumbled into bed
With troubled mind I tried to fall asleep but I woke up instead
(Into the superdimension)
The beings there had never heard of planet earth
They vaporized my essence but they told me they would hasten my rebirth
(Into a world of huge headaches)
