Slow Nerve Action
The Flaming Lips Lyrics


It's all a waste of time again
She used to mow the lawn
She always wasted everyone
She always turned me on

Now she's turned a kind
That isn't so much in demand
And all us vegetables
Can waste our time on someone else

She had a cool invisible
Dog that she called Paul
We'd always sit around her house
Watchin' her feed the dog

Now she's got a man
Who don't like dogs, who just likes cars
She's just got a job
'Cause times got hard, so Paul is gone

Now she's turned a kind
That isn't so much in demand
All us vegetables
Can waste our time on someone else
It's all a waste of time again
It's all a waste of time again
It's all a waste of time again
It's all a waste of time again

i really wish the band would stop ignoring their early-to-mid 90s career in their set lists. easily the best stuff they ever recorded.

Jim Jones

They didn't sell out yet is why.

Aaron Grech

They're playing all of Soft Bulletin at Desert Daze

John Gallagher

Amen. Clouds taste metallic had some of their best and most innovative work. 'When You Smile', 'Lightening Strikes The Postman', 'The Abandoned Hospital Ship'. Incredible, psychedlic guitars courtesy of Jones.

The Lips need Ronald again. This album was their "Revolver" or "Rubber Soul". They still haven't made their "Sergeant Pepper's". And it's because this guy is no longer with them. Wherever Ronald is, it's one of the greatest rock mysteries of all time. I hope he's found what makes him happy. And for my own selfish ears, I would love to see what the Flaming Lips might produce with him contributing again.

I too wish Ronald was still with them. So much so that I tried finding him online. I'm 90% sure I found him and he is not the same. He appears to have no interest in making music except as a hobby. The good news is he's happy and content with things in his life.

those drums

zack honsinger

Steven Drozd is such a good drummer and doesn't get enough praise for it.

Jim Jones

That beat

Fallen World

Always gives me John Bonham vibes.
