Beck's, "Corvette Bummer"

Weed whack a plate of noodles in the afternoon.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Absolutely NOTHING in the song makes sense.

Beck's, "Devil's Haircut"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Heads are hangin' from the garbage man trees
Mouthwash, jukebox, gasoline
Why They're Nonsensical:
WHA...????? I know Beck is famous for nonsensical lyrics, but this has to be the most gibberish couplet he's ever recorded! I first heard it a week or two ago, and I STILL have no clue what the heck it means!!

Beck's, "E-Pro"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
See me kicking the door with my boots
Broke down out in a ditch of old rubbish
Snakes and bones in the back of your room
Handing out a confection of venom
Heaven's drunk from the poison you use
Charm the wolves with the eyes of a gambler
Now I see it's a comfort to you
Hammer my bones on the anvil of daylight
Why They're Nonsensical:
No matter how hard I try, I can't find any meaning to this verse...or any other parts of the song...

Beck's, "Loser"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And my time is a piece of wax
Falling on a termite, who's choking on the splinters.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I could imagine a termite choking on splinters, since wood is all it eats. But why would a piece of wax fall on it? And why would Beck use that metaphor with his time anyway? Did he waste 3 hours at Madame Tussaud's Museum?

Beck's, "Loser"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Butane in my veins so I'm out to cut the junkie
with the plastic eyeballs, spray paint the vegetables
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
Why They're Nonsensical:
Actually the whole song seems like nonsense. But these three lines seem to be the most nonsensical; I just can't make out what they mean. What was Beck thinking when he wrote this? "Let's just throw my random thoughts together!"?

Beck's, "Loser"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Spray paint the vegetables
Why They're Nonsensical:
Really? Some people do weird things with their foods. Makes me wonder what Beck was on when he wrote this.

Beck's, "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.

Beck's, "Truckdrivin' Neighbours Downstairs (Yellow Sweat)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But you're a lousy low life who can't do nothing for himself
Why They're Nonsensical:
Here's the problem: There is a grammatical inconsistency with "you're" and "himself" (as well as the double negative, which is way too common in songwriting anyway, so there's too many examples of that in lots of songs).
