there used to be a tv show
called the land of the lost
it's kind of an insight
into the downfall of mankind
if you will
a half hour fallout shelter
broadcast from a distant shore
the point is
they never killed the bloody dinosaur
the morale of the story
is there is no morale
if you missed it today
you can always watch it tomorrow
i had a nightmare
where nietzsche was dressed up like a clown
i was just about to jump off a bridge
he says to me
matt
just don't look down
it'll go away
if it ain't here
it doesn't really matter where you go

you ever notice
how shaggy and scooby
always ran around in a circle
a friend of mine thought
it was a metaphor for life
so he did
did you ever notice
there was a nixon sticker
on the back of the mystery machine
and it said
i would've gotten away with it too
if it weren't for those meddling kids
the morale of the story
is there is no morale
what i've been trying to say
is what i've been saying all along
i had a dream
there was a mermaid
swimming in my bathtub
she said
life was like an airplane
it'll crash before long
so don't look down
it'll go away
if it ain't here
it doesn't really matter where you go

spotlights painted the building
and the people gathered for the show
and a bum would finger the wind
to see which way he'd blow
and the evening news people
sat in their chairs
and waited for their makeup
and the police controlling the crowd in the street
well
they didn't think to look up
and it would suddenly seem
that the world
would turn the other way
as if the sun had come out
and then changed the darkness into day
perhaps we are most peaceful
when our sanity's on edge
'cause no one bothered to wonder who the guy was
stranded on the ledge
so you just
don't look down
it'll go away
just push
