Glad you made it, welcome to the farm
Who's your daddy, I'm your daddy now
I'm here seeking only what I need
In your mind is where I'll plant my seed
It's for sure.

Let me keep you in this place you'll be better off this way
I will keep you warm and safe, you'll be better off this way
You learn to love the price you pay
Trust me dear you're better off this way

Put to bed the sun and sister moon
I'll be hiding in your dirty room
I'll go there seeking only what I need
La de da we'll stay there 'til we bleed
It's for sure

Let me keep you in this place, you'll be better off this way
I will keep you warm and safe, you'll be better off this way
I will not wake you from your sleep,
Leave you wandering counting sheep
No more sad and sunshine days
Trust me dear, you're better off this way

You'll be selling books at the airport.

Just be sure to bring ping pong balls for full effect ;-)
Sssswwwoooooon!!!
We're only making plans for Nigella. 
Sounds a lot like Pinback only not quite as good.

how did this revoltingly poor tune come to ruin my morning's listening?
Very unhealthy lyrics  non?

All a bit yukky for me

Still like it and it's still the only non-happyish song I've heard from Guster.  I suppose it makes sense that they would have some.  Even Jimmy Buffet has to have a morning after Margaritaville night. 
 

Little late in responding to this, but this is not the only melancholy song of Guster's off this album.  There is "Demons", "Getting Even" and "Rocketship" as well...all pretty solid tunes by the way...

i give this one an "eh". 
they have many other much better songs. 
What number should I choose for "tedious, alternating with annoying?" 

Stephen Fry believes this is a very bad song and urges you not to listen to it:

Such avuncular genius.

Wow, I ranked this song a 10 a long time ago with no comments...  this song is good for the ears...

 
This one I could live without.
the lyrics really start off with some idiocy...
