Just got this album at Goodwill! This is definitely my fav song from the album. :)
Unless it's word of god, I don't buy into the whole metaphorical lyrics crap. Given how weird everything else related to The Flaming Lips is, I'm perfectly content with this being a song about a chick fighting killer robots. It's awesome
*one
The songs about breast cancer and the oink robots areyou pink ribbons and yoshimi is trying to fight cancer cells one by obe.
You know, what we really need is more understandin g . I mean, not all robots are bad, right? RIGHT?!?

Have u guys never seen the play?
Destroy all robots!
It's a funny song. Not like "Haha" funny, but more like "Wow, why hasn't this been done yet?". I guess that's not really funny. But it is still kind of funny.
Love it. Most girl names are associated with a bland You're pretty and I like pretty so I like you song, or a Let me wax about missing you while really talking about how I'm on tour being a rock god song. Yoshimi got a theme song about kicking robot a**. Rock on, Yoshimi.
Awesome song, awesome album

I don't usually listen to this sort of music; I like dark rock and dark ambient. But, I really like this song... don't know why.

Morons--it's a concept album. It is also what you want it to be about, be it a robot-fighti n g teenage girl or the improbable salvation of life and creative existence from the crushing, inevitable anonymousnes s of the ever changing universe. And "ho hum"? You obviously love kid rock.
"ho hum" is pretty accurate. There are times when you may want to believe it's metaphysical

I blame the indiekawaiih i p s t e r taste of my bff for making me a radio station that would even play this song. It makes me like... what? Hahaha.
I like this band, but this song is just kinda...ho hum

Normally you'd probably be on to something, Eric. But, this is the Flaming Lips. It's pretty safe to just take them at face value.
I love this album! It's both happy and enlightening :-)
oh eric postma, you are so wise
its not about a girlfighting robots
you need to think like a musician
Yoshimi is probably his inner self or somthing like that
and the robots are problems or somthng he needs to overcome or forget about

Ha ha my dad got me into these guys...

I wonder where they got the idea for this song, How does some one suddenly think "Hey let's make a song about a girl named yoshimi fighting pink robots"
i didn't know i liked them so well, it does make me happy.......
this is....what is this?
LOOOOOOOOVE IT!! The Flaming Lips make me happy...espe c i a l l y this song!!!
