Seemingly a song about Barnett's search for a home in the suburbs of Melbourne, this doubles as a call to arms about banishing materialism and re-building your life. Barnett explained to NME: "It's a real estate lament. I had an existential moment at an open-home in Preston, Victoria (Australia) where, after noting that there weren't enough electrical sockets in the lounge room, I realized I was looking through the house of someone who had died."
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
