Incubus



Take a bow
Pack on powder
Wash em out with buzzing lights
Pay an au-
Dience to care
Impress me personality
Still intransfixed

The electric sheep are dreaming of your face
Enjoy you from
The chemical
Comfort of america
Come one come all
Into 1984
Ya 3 2 1
Lights! camera! transaction!

Quick your time
Is almost up
Make all forget that they're the moth
Edging in
Toward the flame burn into obscurity
Still intransfixed
The electric sheep are dreamin up your fate

We judge you fom
The card castle
Comfort of america
Come one come all
Into 1984
Ya 3 2 1
Lights! camera! yeah!

Come one come all
Into 1984
Ya 3 2 1
Lights! camera! transaction!
Lights! camera! transaction!
Oh

Come one come all
Into 1984
Ya 3 2 1
Lights! camera! transaction!
Ho

Your foundation
Is canyoning
Fault lines should be worn with pride
I hate to say it
Your so much more
Your so much more
Endearing with
The sound turned off

Has anyone else noticed that the first letters of "Come one, come all, into nineteen eighty-four" can stand for cocaine?

Rumor also has it that Brandon received the book 1984 by George Orwell from a fan before a gig in New York in September of 2001. Having some influence on this song as well.
- James, New York, NY
What about this guitar solo... its just so tasty and delicious.... the song flows perfectly into and out of it, not too long, not too short, quite delectible to say the least.
- Poop, Poopville, MO
at face value the song seems to be about excess and cultural dilution in the 80's. on a symbolic level it's about the government control and constriction of the publics rights.
