Well, I deciphered some lyrics, and this one has not been posted yet.
my english's bad, so there may be a lot of mistakes

It was a night of July, I think six years ago
Why I did the acid, I don't know
I wasn't thinking and I wasn't scared
Why I did the acid, I wasn't prepared
The last time I did acid I went insane

I was hanging with some friends, just getting loaded
When all of the sudden my mind exploded
I had a flash that I was gay and I got paranoid
I was sitting on the floor listening to Pink Floyd
The last time I did acid I went insane

And I was drawing crazy pictures before I was done
The pictures started to pulse like an alien line (?)
And I said Oh my God, this has just began
And It was twelve more hours before I was done

We were up on the rooftop and I'll tell you the truth
I was convinced that I've already fallen off to the roof.
And these weird mellow things all around that space
Were teleporting me from place to place
The last time I did acid I went insane

So we ran back downstairs where it was better to be
But I was trapped by &&& infinity
And when we got to the door I couldn't go inside
Coz it was the gates of heaven, and I had died
The last time I did acid I went insane

And this kid named Grim(?), he punched the cat to the head
He could read my thoughs, that's what he said
And he described what it was like, but i didn't believe it
At lifting a rock (?) and seeing stars beneath it

And the first rule of tripping wise
Don't be with people you don't trust
The second rule of LSD
The rooftop is not a good place to be
The third rule is to be prepared
The fourth rule is to not get scared
The fifth rule is to stay sereine,
Turn off your mind and flow downstream
The sixth rule, now have a good friend at hand
The seventh rule, i hope you understand
Is not to look too deep into your soul
Or you might find a hidious hopeless hole
Of hatred, anger, infinite, idiot, mindless
Meaningless, nothingness
Nothing less
Nothingness
Nothing less
Nothingness
Nothing less
Nothingness
Nothing less
Nothing less
Nothingness
Nothingness
And that's what i did

And every aspect of life that I selected
Was instantly and prudely (?) dissected
I saw the horrible emptiness within
The reasons behind everything
And it was at that moment that I was insane

Cause I figured out why bother doing anything you can
I didn't understand my thoughts
Revealing themselves to be the truth behind everything
And everyone who lives (?) revealing themselves to be

I stood up... crushed... my head.. .&&&... &&&
There are things which we feel to be so terrificly true
that they're all but madness for any good man and his own proper character &&&

I've just discovered the meaning of life!

I've just discovered the meaning of life!

I've just discovered the meaning of life!

I've just discovered the meaning of life!

Thanks! merci!

The "spiral stairs" case is still unresolved. Well, for the rest of the lines, we can always sing so badly that it doesn't matter if we even use words.

I hesitated to use the word "yaourt" Surprised, didn't know how to translate it in english. But I guess it's pretty obvious what "yoghourt singing" is now!

You're probably right. I did not think about "brutally", and realized that prudely is not even a word, so I checked on google and found 1630 occurences of "prudely", mostly in the sentence "prudely is not even a word".

hey, i realise most people are form france, jeff must be big over there..here in my city in lancaster only a handful of people know about him. I thought i'd just make a few corrections to these lyrics, do here they are in full, and totally correct (i hope)


It was a night of July, I think six years ago
Whyd I eat the acid, I don't know
I wasn't thinking and I wasn't scared
Whyd I eat the acid, I wasn't prepared
The last time I did acid I went insane

I was hanging with some friends, just getting loaded
When all of the sudden my mind exploded
I had a flash that I was gay and I got paranoid
I was sitting on the floor listening to Pink Floyd
The last time I did acid I went insane

And I was drawing crazy pictures before I was done
The pictures started pulsing like an alien lung
And I said Oh my God, this has just began
And It was twelve more hours before I was done

We were up on the rooftop and I'll tell you the truth
I was convinced that I've already fallen off of the roof.
And these weird mellow things all around that space
Were teleporting me from place to place
The last time I did acid I went insane

So we ran back downstairs where it was better to be
But I was trapped in a spiral staircase of infinity
And when we got to the door I couldn't go inside
Coz it was the gates of heaven, and I had died
The last time I did acid I went insane

And this kid named Grim, he punched the cat to the head
He could read my thoughts, that's what he said
And he described what it was like, but i didn't believe it
At lifting a rug and seeing stars beneath it

And the first rule of tripping was
Don't be with people you don't trust
The second rule of LSD
The rooftop is not a good place to be
The third rule is to be prepared
The fourth rule is to not get scared
The fifth rule is to stay serene,
Turn off your mind and float downstream
The sixth rules to have a good friend at hand
The seventh rule, i hope you understand
Is not to look too deep into your soul
Or you might find a hideous hopeless hole
Of hatred, hunger, infinite, idiot, mindless
Meaningless, nothingness
Nothingness
Nothingness
Nothingness
Nothingness
Nothingness
Nothingness
Nothingness
Nothing less
Nothingness
Nothingness
And that's what i did

And every aspect of life that I selected
Was instantly and brutally disected
I saw the horrible emptiness within
The reasons behind everything
And it was at that moment that I went insane

Cause I figured: why bother doing anything again
I didn't understand my thoughts
Revealing themselves to be the truth behind everything
Id ever wanted to believe revealed itself to be

I stood up... crushed... my head.. .&&&... &&&
There are things which we feel to be so terrificly true
that they're all but madness for any good man and his own proper character

I've just discovered the meaning of life!

I've just discovered the meaning of life!

I've just discovered the meaning of life!

I've just discovered the meaning of life!

Thanks a lot!

"This kid named Grim". Someone took this as a nickname. Funny stuff.
