Ariel Pink - Trepanated Earth Lyrics




The sun rises and falls and on goes the day
In every direction of the compass
We ride a tropical desert region
Traveling to a distant idea of time
And there is music...

"The human race is a pile of dog shit!"
In my world, I hold the key of wisdom in my hand
And lead all the children of the earth to a door
They previously believed locked
Only to find it open, inviting them to see

[Modest Mussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition" (piano)]

"You can all kiss my ass!"
And there is light
In my world, I make medicine out of air
"Mankind is a Nazi!"
And breathe fire from the lakes of harmony
"Humanity is the devil!"
My ashes smoke the melodies of your love
And God is a good friend of mine, in my world
"You really think I give a fuck about the world?!"

Been accused of being confused and I never denied it
It's the right or more wrong
In the world I'm a fallen angel
Within mine, I'm in hell
I pay my rent to the devil for the dark space to dwell
'Cause it's too bright, too hot in the sky for me
Hell's a hell of a lot cooler than

Heaven, heaven, heaven
Hell, hell, hell
Heaven, heaven, heaven

Ooh, ah, ah
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ah
You never see me anymore and that's all right
But you keep on saying you want more, oh what more?
When you showed me the door
And it's your pride, you don't have to swallow
Now, all I want is time to recover
And I'm boiling over, gotta let off some steam
'Cause yeah that's hotter than my hell could ever be

Ooh, ah, ah,
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ah
You say you love me but you don't and that's alright
Don't wanna make it like before, oh what for?
You wouldn't mind anymore
And that's all you pretending to ask me 'bout it
It's all true, but your words are just nullified
Get out of the way while I jump in the sea
'Cause yeah it's hotter than my hell could ever be

Ooh, ah, ah,
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ah
So through with lying anymore, you're not whole
Stop crying, I'm not buying more, what a chore
I won't cry anymore
And it's all true, you do like the others
Step out of the way, I'm under the covers
With someone true, someone cooler than me
'Cause you'll get hotter than my hell
'Cause you're hotter than my hell
Could ever be

The sun rises and falls and on goes the day
In every direction of the compass
We ride a tropical desert region...
And there is music

    Good frickin song

  6. Troublemaker

    revenge x storm blog

  7. Welshaccenttutorials

    Immense

  8. Massive Douche

    Still blows my mind that he beatboxed all the drum sounds. How the fuck?

  9. locksh

    Modern day Tarkus

    Byron Benoit

    lol true but that's a funny comparison, I felt that he was doing a very strong prog rock thing with this song regardless

    Jake Fettes

    I think it sounds more like a synthed up Paul McCartney & Wings.

  10. Occupy My Life

    Masterpiece

  11. Jack Daddy

    '...and showed them to a door that they believed locked, only to find it open'

  12. Roberta Iannitti

    2:19 Great quote from Musorgskij: pictures from an exhibition. 1874

    locksh

    Actually never made this connection - which is funny since this song really reminds me of Emerson, Lake & Palmer which have an album by the same name (and concept).

  13. Fernanda Lejarazu

    Humanity is the devil

  14. Sphi Noyd

    OOH WAHH OOH WAHH OOH WAHH OOH

  15. alexandra de leon

    whack a mole

  16. Jack Daddy

    Incredible song, incredible way to start the album.
    All the different parts he worked together makes this song feel like some amazing journey

  17. CKG

    Amazing

  18. Georgery R

    Gorgeous.

  19. ThatSlenderGuy

    REVENGE X STORM

  20. die grenze

    always rough around the edges, but nevertheless a pop genius.

  21. haroldz2323

    I real love the mix!! Good mind! I wrote down the stuff who had in your bag!!!

  22. Benjamin White

    This one is my favorite APHG Prog/Kraut-influenced song. It sounds like Sensations' Fix interrupted by Zappa/Mothers of Invention, with one of Ariel's ingenious heavy pop moments at it's core. Amazing stuff.

    Jason isamu

    👌🤖

    Sphi Noyd

    This comment got me into sensations fix (kinda )

  23. Ryan Smith

    Ariel, you genius.

    The first time I saw Ariel pink live, it was free. The first song they played a lot of people left, it was so funny! Ariel pink is a genius & this song is amazing, everything about it

    smelly lorenny

    It's not an overstatement- Ariel Pink really is a genius.

    zelarot kram

    Chey Chey

    Jason isamu

    U're soooooo lucky

  27. Nicholas Coletti

    Knowing there's something like this out there makes me feel better about not pursuing something artistic myself.

    haroldz2323

    +Nicholas Coletti do it anyway!!!
    Mike Watt If you don't like whats around start doing something out of nothing.Just the ear is all that matters.It's all about serving the music!

    ChiefofBuddha

    again, cancer

    smelly lorenny

    cool philosophy, i respect it

    Jason isamu

    Right on

  28. murdamangoz

    ChiefofBuddha

    i just threw up in my mouth

    g.gustafson1

    ChiefofBuddha, You are by far the most annoying Ariel Pink fan. You comment retarded shit on every AP video. What were you diagnosed with?

  29. Miranda Randolph

    It's that time of year

  30. Aaron Rister

    This song is REALLY good, so catchy you almost think it can't be original. I guess you can say that about a lot of his songs.

    Thomas Rainbow

    I think he's tapping into another dimension that we've all been before so it sounds familiar

  31. ジェームズ ブルックス

    4:44 is LOVE!

  32. Dan Stansfield Benidorm

    At 9:03 is great

  33. asa dunbar

    ariel pink's haunted is (in my opinon) awesome, big fan, for 6yrs or so, i really needed somthing that tickled my fancy, and fancy my tickle they (he) did.  i amlost thought i was the last freak of nature left on the planet.

    ChiefofBuddha

    this comment gave me cancer
