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.

@internetuser5286 I'm not saying play the same songs, but at least pretend like your back catalog exists

internetuser5286

I can't imagine playing the same songs for 30 years, they probably play new stuff to keep themselves sane

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.

This is the first song I listen to when I'm ready to start tripping. It sets the mood and then my mind does the rest

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.

Soft bulletin is their sgt pepper's in my opinion

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.

Ronald Jones was so tasteful with texture.
