Rosetta Stoned lyrics

All righty, then... picture this if you will

10 to 2 AM, X, Yogi DMT, and a box of Krispy Kremes
In my "need to know" pose, just outside of Area 51
Contemplating the whole "chosen people" thingy
When a flaming stealth banana split the sky
Like one would hope but never really expect to see in a place like this
Cutting right angle donuts on a dime
And stopping right at my Birkenstocks
And me yelping...

Holy f*cking shit!

Then the X-Files being, looking like some kind of blue-green Jackie Chan
With Isabella Rossellini lips, and breath that reeked of vanilla Chig Champa
Did a slow-mo Matrix descent
Outta the butt end of the banana vessel
And hovered above my bug-eyes, my gaping jaw
And my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip
And all I could think was
"I hope Uncle Martin here doesn't notice that I pissed my f*ckin' pants."

So light in his way, like an apparition
That he had me crying out
"F*ck me, it's gotta be the Deadhead Chemistry
The blotter got right on top of me
Got me seein' E-motherf*ckin'-T!"

And after calming me down with some orange slices and some fetal spooning
E.T. revealed to me his singular purpose
He said, "You are the Chosen One, the One who will deliver the message
A message of hope for those who choose to hear it and a warning for those who do not."
Me. The Chosen One? They chose me!
And I didn't even graduate from f*ckin' high school

You'd better...
You'd better...
You'd better...
You'd better listen

Then he looked right through me with somniferous almond eyes
Don't even know what that means
Must remember to write it down
This is so real, like the time Dave floated away
See, my heart is pounding, 'cause this shit never happens to me

I can't breathe right now!

It was so real, like I woke up in Wonderland
All sorta terrifying
I don't wanna be all alone while I tell this story
And can anyone tell me why y'all sound like Peanuts parents?
Will I ever be coming down? This is so real
Finally, it's my lucky day
See, my heart is racing, 'cause this shit never happens to me

I can't breathe right now!

You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I've just said!
See, the Dead ain't touring and this wasn't all in my head
See, they took me by the hand and invited me right in
Then they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin.

Strapped down to my bed, feet cold and eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

Hey...

Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position
Such a heavy burden now to be the One
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending
To write it down for all the world to see

But I forgot my pen
Shit the bed again...
Typical

Strapped down to my bed, feet cold and eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Sunkist and Sudafed, gyroscopes and infrared
Won't help, I'm brain dead
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

I can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said to make me out to be the hero
Can't remember what they said
Bob, help me!
Can't remember what they said

We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know
We don't know, and we won't know

God damn, shit the bed!
