The Flaming Lips - A Spoonful Weighs a Ton Lyrics

And though they were sad,
They rescued everyone
They lifted up the sun
A spoonful weighs a ton

Giving more than they had
The process had begun
A million came from one
The limits now were none

Being drunk on their plan,
They lifted up the sun

Forcing it off with their hands
The trap door became undone
Above our heads it swung
The privilege had been won

Being drunk on their plan,
They lifted up the sun

Yelling as hard as they can
The doubters all were stunned
Heard louder than a gun
The sounds they made was love
