There's poison in my drinking glass, don't stop just sip it down And in a swirling masquerade of style my body hits the ground. I'm beautiful when I'm asleep. Martini kisses land on my blistered bloody scarlet lips. The bottles in my hand. Burn out, not fade away. I'll speak in riddles so you can understand. I'll draw in pencil so you can trace with pen. So in love with me, like shaped you would be. I'll write both our names into the wet concrete. We're glistening like silver spoons, beneath the summer night. Oh, can you smell the suttle winter frost as the flowers start to pry. The autumn winds are bringing grapes to all the emerald trees. They're so beautiful and dead, just make the colors slowly bleed.

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.
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
