about

Trekkies will likely catch the reference to the famous episode "This Side of Paradise" in which the crew of the enterprise visits the planet Omicron Ceti III only to be infected with spores that brainwash them all. However, for Spock, it allows him to feel emotions. So this song is written as if he's coming off the effects of the spores, like a drug, and in his depression he's got the blues.

lyrics

Bad news,
it's sad tunes.
Love's doomed,
to mad runes.

Some spores,
make men toons.
and whole scores,
of feels zoom.

Past me,
so fast,
these ain't gifts,
so they're curses.

They don't last,
so they pass,
still don't know,
which is the worstest.

To have loved,
and have lost.
Or to loose all,
to love.

But I choose all,
and loose all,
then booze all,
and shove.

It goes back down inside,
I keep it where it belongs.
Though I long for her song,
I still know the right form of wrong.

So don't let our bodies,
get the best of our minds.
I don't mind a new find,
but let's keep it confined.

Cause there's not much we can gain,
but so much we can loose.
So let's refrain from this game,
and for now just let me choose.

I know it's par for your course,
but for me it's new news.
Ain't no two ways about it,
I got the Omicron blues.
