    This is what they should be. Thanks.

    All righty then. Picture this if you will.
    10 to 2am X, yogi, DMT and a box of Krispy Kremes,
    in my need-to-know pose just outside area 51
    Contemplating the whole chosen people thingy when
    just then a flaming stealth banana split the sky like one would hope but
    never really expect to see in a place like this
    Cutting right angle doughnuts on a dime and stopping right at my Birkenstocks
    and me yelping... HOLY ****ING SHIT
    Holy ****ing shit
    ****ing shit
    Holy ****ing shit
    Holy ****ing shit
    Holy ****ing shit...****ing shit...****ing shit

    Then the X-Files being,looking
    like some kinda blue-green Jackie Chan
    With Isabella Rossellini lips and breath that reeked of vanilla chig champa
    Did a slow-mo matrix decent outta the butt end of the banana vessel
    and hovered above my bug-eyes
    My gaping jaw
    And my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip,
    And all I could think was,
    I hope Uncle Martin here doesn't notice
    That I pissed my ****ing pants.

    So light in his way
    Like an apparition,
    He had me crying out,
    **** me!
    It's gotta be
    Dead head chemistry!
    The blotter got right on top of me
    Got me seeing E mother****ing T!

    And after calming me down with some orange slices and some fetal spooning
    E.T. revealed to me his singular purpose,
    He said you are the chosen one.
    The one who will deliver the message.
    A message of hope for those who choose to hear it
    And a warning for those who do not.
    Me, the chosen one
    They chose me
    And I didn't graduate from ****ing high school!

    You better
    You better
    You better
    You beter listen

    He looked right through me
    With somniferous almond eyes
    Don't even know what that means
    Must remember to write it down,
    This is so real
    Like the time Dave floated away
    See my heart is pounding
    'Cause this shit never happens to me!

    Can't breathe right now

    It was so real
    Like I woke up in Wonderland
    Also a bit terrifying
    I don't wanna be alone
    When I tell this story
    And can anyone tell me why
    ya'll sound like peanuts parents
    Will I ever be coming down?
    This is so real
    Finally it's my lucky day
    See my heart is racing
    Cause this shit never happens to me

    Can't breathe right now

    You believe me don't you
    Please believe what I just said
    See the dead ain't touring
    And this wasn't all in my head.
    See they took me by the hand
    And invited me right in
    Then they showed me something
    I don't even know where to begin

    Strapped down to my bed
    Feet cold and eyes red
    I'm out of my head
    Am I alive am I dead
    Can't remember what they said
    God damn shit the bed
    High eye (repeated)

    Overwhelmed as one would be
    Placed in my position
    Such a heavy burden now to be the one
    Born to bear and bring to all
    The details of our ending
    To write it down for all the world to see.
    But I forgot my pen
    Shit the bed again

    Strapped down to my bed
    Feet cold and eyes red
    I'm out of my head
    Am I alive am I dead?
    Sunkist and sudafed
    Gyroscopes and infra red
    Won't help
    Brain dead
    Can't remember what they said
    God damn shit the bed
    IIIIIII can't remember what they said to me
    Can't remember what they said to me
    To make out to be a hero
    Can't remember what they said

    Don't know, won't know (repeated)
    God damn shit the bed!

    Maynard is a lyrical genius. But i don't get the link between these lyrics and the song title (actual meaning of Rosetta Stone being some artifact used as key to decipher ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs).
