Paroles de The Last Time I Did Acid I Went Insane It was a night in July, I think six years ago

Why did I eat the acid? I don't know

I wasn't thinking and I wasn't scared

Why did I eat the acid? I wasn't prepared

The last time I did acid I went insane



I was hanging with some friends just getting loaded

When all of a sudden my mind exploded

I had a flash that I was gay and I got paranoid

I was sitting on the floor listening to Pink Floyd

The last time I did acid I went insane



And I was drawing crazy pictures and before I was done

The pictures started pulsing like an alien lung

And I said "oh my god this is just begun"

And it was twelve more hours before I was done

We were up on the rooftop and I'll tell you the truth

I was convinced I'd already fallen off of the roof

And these weird metal things rolling around in outta space

Were teleporting me from place to place

The last time I did acid I went insane



So we ran back downstairs where it was better to be

But I was trapped in spiral staircase infinity

And when we got to the door I couldn't go inside

Cos it was the gates of heaven and I had died

The last time I did acid I went insane



And this kid named Graham he punched a cat in the head

He could read my thoughts, that's what he said

And he described what it was like but I didn't believe it

Like lifting a rug and seeing stars beneath it

Ooo-ooo



And the first rule of tripping was

Don't be with people you don't trust

The second rule of LSD

The rooftop is not a good place to be

The third rule is to be prepared

The fourth rule is to not get scared

The fifth rule is to stay serene

Turn off your mind and float downstream

The sixth rule's to have a good friend at hand

The seventh, I hope that you understand

Is not to look to deep into your soul

Or you might find a hideous, hopeless hole

Of hatred, hunger, infinite, idiot

Mindless, meaningless, nothingness, nothingness

Nothingness, nothingness, nothingness, nothingness

Nothingness, nothingness, nothingness, nothingness

Nothingness

And that's what I did



And every aspect of life that I selected

Was instantly and brutally dissected

I saw the horrible emptiness within

The reasons behind everything

And it was at that moment that I went insane



Cos I figured why bother doing anything again

I didn't understand my thoughts revealing themselves to be

The truth behind everything I'd ever wanted and believed

Revealed itself to be

Unwinding



I Stood up

I brushed

My head

I turned

To my right

All in my eye

And I said



There are things which we feel to be so terrifically true

That what were all but madness

For any good man in his own proper character

To utter or even hint of them



I've just discovered the meaning of life

I've just discovered the meaning of life

I've just discovered the meaning of life

I've just discovered the meaning of life
