My Own Planet

Wayne's quote from Staring At Sound:

"'My Own Planet' is cosmic, and it's punk rock; it's melodic, and it's noisy. It was kind of rebellious, but it wasn't rebelling against this Reagan power thing, like the hardcore bands. It was rebelling by creating yourself. We didn't come up with another one like that for ten years."


One, two, three

I'm livin' 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 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 talkin' 'bout no Hitler kind of trip
Just want a place where things can be just as we 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

Live

"My Own Planet" was played during the early years of Flaming Lips shows in both the regular fast and noisy arrangement and in a mellower, slower arrangement.
