My Own Planet

Album: The Flaming Lips (1984)
  • One, two, three!

    I'm living here on the third speck from the sun
    I think it's about time that my own world has begun
    A place where my mind has all the color that it needs
    A place where my trippy life, it just belongs to me

    I want my own planet
    The human race, I can't stand it
    I want my own planet
    Cause this one here is a drag

    Ain't talking about no Hitler kind of trip
    Just want a place where things can be just as they wish
    If you can't dig all these things I have to say
    You're gonna blow up this whole planet anyway
    And that's why

    I want my own planet
    The human race, I can't stand it
    I want my own planet
    Cause this one here is a drag

    I want my own planet
    The human race, I can't stand it
    I want my own planet
    Cause this one here is a drag

    Want my own

    I want my own planet
    The human race, I can't stand it
    I want my own planet
    Cause this one here is a drag

    What a drag!
