chorus: F# G F# E lyrics: It was a night in July, I think six years ago Why did I eat the acid? I don't know I wasn't thinking and I wasn't scared Why did I eat the acid? I wasn't prepared The last time I did acid I went insane I was hanging with some friends just getting loaded When all of a sudden my mind exploded I had a flash that I was gay and I got paranoid I was sitting on the floor listening to Pink Floyd The last time I did acid I went insane And I was drawing crazy pictures and before I was done The pictures started pulsing like an alien lung And I said "oh my god this is just begun" And it was twelve more hours before I was done We were up on the rooftop and I’ll tell you the truth I was convinced I'd already fallen off of the roof And these weird metal things rolling around in outta space Were teleporting me from place to place The last time I did acid I went insane So we ran back downstairs where it was better to be But I was trapped in spiral staircase infinity And when we got to the door I couldn't go inside Cos it was the gates of heaven and I had died The last time I did acid I went insane And this kid named Graham he punched a cat in the head He could read my thoughts, that's what he said And he described what it was like but I didn't believe it Like lifting a rug and seeing stars beneath it Ooo-ooo And the first rule of tripping was Don't be with people you don't trust The second rule of LSD The rooftop is not a good place to be The third rule is to be prepared The fourth rule is to not get scared The fifth rule is to stay serene Turn off your mind and float downstream The sixth rule's to have a good friend at hand The seventh, I hope that you understand Is not to look to deep into your soul Or you might find a hideous, hopeless hole Of hatred, hunger, infinite, idiot Mindless, meaningless, nothingness, nothingness Nothingness, nothingness, nothingness, nothingness Nothingness, nothingness, nothingness, nothingness Nothingness And that's what I did And every aspect of life that I selected Was instantly and brutally dissected I saw the horrible emptiness within The reasons behind everything And it was at that moment that I went insane Cos I figured why bother doing anything again I didn't understand my thoughts revealing themselves to be The truth behind everything I'd ever wanted and believed Revealed itself to be Unwinding I Stood up I brushed My head I turned To my right All in my eye And I said There are things which we feel to be so terrifically true That what were all but madness For any good man in his own proper character To utter or even hint of them I've just discovered the meaning of life I've just discovered the meaning of life I've just discovered the meaning of life
