Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"The New Pollution"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
She's got a carburetor tied to the moon,
Pink eyes looking to the food of the ages.
Why They're Nonsensical:
How much can really be said to explain the nonsense here? It just seems like bizarre thoughts randomly strung together. The first of these lines might describe an image from a dream, but a bizarre dream at that. The second of these lines wouldn't even be a very meaningful description of an image from a dream.

Really? Some people do weird things with their foods. Makes me wonder what Beck was on when he wrote this.

'crazes' doesn't really rhyme with 'ages'
