Take Meta Mars

Wayne's Notes from The Day They Shot A Hole In The Jesus Egg:

"Me and Michael had recently been turned on to Can's Mushroom Head. And we ended up messing around with this riff that we thought sounded like their tune. You see we didn't actually have a copy of the song and we only heard it just the once..."


Yeah, 'cause when I drive in my car
We put heads in jars
So take me please, take meta Mars
I wanna go where they are
I wanna go where they are
I wanna go

Yeah, and if I'm lost, well I don't care
'Cause I walk on endless stairs
You say it's me, I think it's you
Who can blame us for thinkin' the way we do
'Cause we don't care what we are
'Cause we don't care what we are

Take me please, take meta Mars
So take me please, take meta Mars
Take me please, take meta Mars

Take meta Mars
Take meta Mars
Take meta Mars
Take meta Mars
Take meta Mars

Two, three, and stop

Live

With its riff allowing the band to stretch out and jam, "Take Meta Mars" was frequently played by the Lips from 1991 to 1996.
