The Spark That Bled
The Flaming Lips Lyrics


I accidentally touched my head
And noticed that I had been bleeding
For how long, I didn't know

What was this, I thought, that struck me?
What kind of weapons have they got?
The softest bullet ever shot?

I stood up and I said yeah!
I stood up and I said yeah!
I stood up and I said hey, yeah, yeah, yeah!

From this moment on
Blaring like a trumpet
Coming from above us
And somewhere below
The confidence of knowing
Descending to relieve us
Struggle to believe it's so

I stood up and I said yeah!
I spoke up and I said yeah!
I stood up and I said hey, yeah, yeah, yeah!

And it seemed to cause a chain reaction
It had momentum, it was gaining traction
It was all the rage, it was all the fashion
The outreached hands had resigned themselves to
Holding on to something that they never had
And that's too bad
'Cause in reality there was no reaction

I accidentally touched my head
And noticed that I had been bleeding
For how long, I didn't know

This to me is one of the heaviest, saddest songs ever written. The result of a "thoughtful" guy being fully convinced he has all the world-changing answers about love and the universe figured out in his own headspace, but has no way to communicate such things to those around it him. in reality there was no reaction...

THE GHOST

The way you described your thoughts reminds me very much so of a manic episode/state of mind.

My God, The Soft Bulletin is such an excellent album. It's truly one of the best albums of the 90s.

geoffrey eltgroth

I thought this album was from the early 2000s, regardless good stuff

Kevin Thomas

I agree and there was so much good shit in the 90's: Neutral Milk Hotel, Teenage Fanclub, Pavement, Elliott Smith... the list goes on. This album is amazing and right up there, one of my favorites.

Branco Canales

apart of which ones?

Gabriel Bizzlebop

the bohemian rhapsody of our time. I truly believe it. this album is one of the best albums ever put together.

moko

WRONG

Daniel J. H. McDonald

I can't believe I haven't heard this until 2017. This is absolutely beautiful. Automatic favorite.
