@Kikinak sorry but Mckade is absolutely right...Wayn e wrote this for his dear brave friend :) And it makes perfect sense I love it and I'm soooo glad I seen them this year! I will not ever miss them again

Just got this album at Goodwill! This is definitely my fav song from the album. :)

Unless it's word of god, I don't buy into the whole metaphorical lyrics crap. Given how weird everything else related to The Flaming Lips is, I'm perfectly content with this being a song about a chick fighting killer robots. It's awesome

It's a funny song. Not like "Haha" funny, but more like "Wow, why hasn't this been done yet?". I guess that's not really funny. But it is still kind of funny.

Love it. Most girl names are associated with a bland You're pretty and I like pretty so I like you song, or a Let me wax about missing you while really talking about how I'm on tour being a rock god song. Yoshimi got a theme song about kicking robot a**. Rock on, Yoshimi.

I don't usually listen to this sort of music; I like dark rock and dark ambient. But, I really like this song... don't know why.

Morons--it's a concept album. It is also what you want it to be about, be it a robot-fighti n g teenage girl or the improbable salvation of life and creative existence from the crushing, inevitable anonymousnes s of the ever changing universe. And "ho hum"? You obviously love kid rock.

"ho hum" is pretty accurate. There are times when you may want to believe it's metaphysical

I blame the indiekawaiih i p s t e r taste of my bff for making me a radio station that would even play this song. It makes me like... what? Hahaha.

Normally you'd probably be on to something, Eric. But, this is the Flaming Lips. It's pretty safe to just take them at face value.

I love this album! It's both happy and enlightening :-)

oh eric postma, you are so wise
Report as inappropriate
its not about a girlfighting robots
you need to think like a musician
Yoshimi is probably his inner self or somthing like that
and the robots are problems or somthng he needs to overcome or forget about
