I've been listening to this song a lot since I bought 'Manhattan' and trying to figure out the words (though I've not quite got them all). Of course, listening repeatedly and deciphering the lyrics of a song by a cult musician is exactly the sort of geeky activity that the song satirises.....(but being single and in my mid-30s whole lots of my friends are having kids I think there is something quite sad about people who abandon all their interests and suddenly have nothing to talk about but their own offspring). Anyway, here goes:

Have a baby
It's gonna take some time to figure out what I should wear
That vest that makes those pants that work the best a perfect pair
I like a little fuss and plus it shows a little care
It shows a different side of me than last time I was there

And that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

I gotta keep a steady presence and update my profile
I want to fix the links I want to sync it with my mobile
The reason for that is with my relationship status
Selfie with smile or no smile that sort of thing matters

And that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

[Distorted Jeff voice]
Every record album alphabetically by section
shows care and expertise to those who share my genre preference
There's still a holy grail a painful gap in my collection
You have the common repro but I really hear the difference

And that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

That (???) has changed my life again can't imagine life without it
It's a leader in industry but no-one's heard about it
I swear it's so unfair the way the public eats up style
over substance just for once I wish they'd shop there for a while

'cause that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

Theatre blogs have gone to the point of being serious
But analogue is absolutely crucial to experience
This criticism isn't as effectual on digital
until they all admit it I'll support the individual

'Cause that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

He looked good as a rookie from the starting college draft
'til the first around selection blew the budget awful fast
That bastard of a manager can't handle basic math
???? No team should treat the fans like trash

And that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

It fills a need in our lives to read the acid archives
I'll zip the tracks and store them in the backup backup hard drive
When so and so is touring there's a buzz around the forum
Yeah they do define the form you know I liked them more before

And that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

[Female voice]
The film that best exemplifies the streak of ?? culture
seeks the focus of my close participation but I oughta
else I'll just be one more academic parasite yeah right
it's so endemic I just wonder how they're gonna sleep tonight

'cause that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

I'll ruminate conspiracies, illuminating histories
I'm telling you to hear these totally compelling theories
But you know I'd never go right into dialogue decision
With somebody with illimanti flaw within their system

(It's gonna take some time to figure outů..)

And that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

I wonder what's the point of living totally for ego
Doesn't everybody know that all philosophies are equal?
I just think it's all pathetic late ascetic as they read it
As for me I'll seek internally until I really get it

And that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

[Female voice]
The quality of solid state's improving but I warn you
That you'll clearly hear it warmer through the tubes of a transformer
So the most important thing is the equipment being vintage
And that's always been the reason that the band is anti-image

And that's important to me
That stuff's important to me
At least until I throw that bullshit out and have a baby

But until then
It's important to me!

Hi DrNick - from what I can hear it is "illuminating history" and "illuminati fluoride in their system"

It's a reference to the myriad conspiracy theories surrounding fluoride, and who put it in our water and why....???! Wake up, people!! Very Happy
