about

"This song is about a kind of comfortable paranoia that I feel everybody has a certain amount of. The character in the song imagines that he is a secret agent on his way to work in the distant future... In his own mind he is the most important man on the planet and bears the responsibility of saving mankind, or something like that... even though it is fake, it makes him feel important...is insanity just imagination that can't find its way back to reality?"
-Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, from the Zaireeka booklet

This song written by Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd, Michael Ivins

lyrics

On some driven ship
The morning commuter ride
Everything is orange and bright

The panoramic scene
The landscape's grand design
The moment overtakes your life

In the silver morning sun
The worst is magnified
It makes you see the use of Christ
