Setting the Periodic Table

Today, I forego the universe's message, since it is a song that I care to never hear again:


If it means something to you, excellent! To me, it just makes me want to shut the radio off.  

Instead, when I first visited Facebook this morning, I was greeted with instantly recognizable lyrics on a friend's feed: 


~Type O Negative

Periodic tableware
psychotropic science fare

But who will - save the sane
some beings - just can't change
now - crawl on by - a fake - tear in your eye
and think - isn't he strange

Pseudogasmic chemistry
necromorphic apathy

But who will - save the sane
some beings - just can't change
now - crawl on by - a fake - tear in your eye
and think - isn't he strange

Physical laws unapplied - hamper my - quest
unsurreal world of unfailed - HIV - tests
der ubermensch warning of pi techno junkies - 3.141592653
come on boy - tell me - tell me

Tentative ambulance date - bound for G - ward
beartrap psychiatrist bait - chew my paw - off
unmercilessly we will take you away to slumber
but only if you can recite avogadro's number
come on boy - tell me - tell me

But who will - save the sane
some beings - just can't change
now - crawl on by - a fake - tear in your eye
and think - isn't he strange

Now - crawl on by - a fake tear in your eye
and think - wasn't he strange

It's a song that just makes absolute sense to me. Maybe because I'm not one of the sane whom needs saving...and I love, love, love, LOVE the music. I tend towards the Type O songs with a grand and sweeping arrangement, over the more hard-core selections.....they have a sound that I never heard before and never will again. 

I guess today's message is this:  If you don't get me, just keep crawling on by.

Happy Monday!
