Moth in the Incubator
The Flaming Lips Lyrics

Something in you, it jitters like a moth
And I see that your arms are out to God
And oh, they kill you when they talk
It makes a mountain peak seem little when it's not

Your incubator is so tight
Your incubator is so tight

I've been born before, I'm pretty used to it
Brain-dead is always all there is

So embryonic it's all right
So embryonic it's all right

I've been born before, I'm getting used to it
Brain-dead is how it always ends

Stoned Meadow Of Doom

By far the best on the album

Richey Hackett

2:36 onward - possibly my favourite Flaming Lips moment of all time. Just amazing.


I think the build up to that part what makes that part great. You can practically see the song getting brighter.

Mike T

I saw these guys in 92 at a small dirt track in SW Ohio., they opened for STP and the Butthole Surfers.

Damien Martin

I was there too, great show!


Anyone else notice how (it seems that) this song is heavily influenced by T. Rex's 'Cosmic Dancer'?

Max Quick

Anybody notice him say "so embryonic it's all right". Maybe that's where he got the idea to name their 2009 album embryonic

Lawrence Ramos

2:45 wow! Love the switch!!!

André Diniz

It's brilliant!


DAMMIT, SOMEHOW i missed these guys. I've been around since the 80s but really thought of them. But at least every few months I'd hear something about them. Which should've told me to pay attention.
