  • Lyrics
  • Lead singer Wayne Coyne got the idea for this song when he had a dream about a singer/songwriter named Devendra Banhart where he is trying to convince a suicide bomber not to explode. In the dream, Banhart succeeds, and begins to sympathize with the bomber and understand why he would want to blow himself (and others) up. >>
