about

Inspired by Kurt Vonnegut’s "Galapagos."

lyrics

When I dropped the bomb
It felt better than getting laid
Destroying all below
The World that this God made

When I dropped my load (payload)
On the people in their shells
It gave me burning joy
I swear that I heard wedding bells

When I gave it its freedom
And blew everyone to bits
I sent a rocket to love you

When I showed you the blue tunnel
And gave you that French kiss
I sent a rocket to love you

But it’s all right—Even the misfits can start it all again
Yes it’s all right—Even the misfits can start it all again

When I dropped the bomb
Once felt incomplete
But there really wasn’t a number
That would ever give relief

I’m glad I missed Mary Hepburn
I glad I missed Von Kleist
I ‘m glad I missed the Kanka-bono kids
Even though they ate that blind girl’s dog

It was time to start over
Hey we all make mistakes
I’ve got a rocket to love you

Let’s face it our big brains
Only got in the way
I’ve got a rocket to love you

But it’s all right—Even the misfits can start it all again
Yes it’s all right—Even the misfits can start it all again
It’s all right—Even the misfits can start it all again
