Guided By Voices Daily Planet Lyrics

Last updated:

(R. Pollard - J. Pollard - Mitchell)

Assassin at an earlier time:
(Laughter) Ah, Shit!

Strange Signal:
Yet...Four...Two...Going...
1, 3, 6, twenty five times, the Jericho mile, it's 15, 17...18 if
one could possibly remember...what!?

Local Observer:
Today Superman jumped off a building
And he couldn't fly
And he couldn't fly
Straight to the ground he fell
You should have seen him die...oh

Drunk at the end of the bar:
He ate a pound of Kryptonite
He ate a pound of brotherly love, baby

Strange Signal:
One...$.02 now...I wish it could be, if it was only there...I know

Local Observer:
He didn't know it was Kryptonite
Superman took a dive
And he hadn't
He didn't know how to fight
For truth, for justice, for safety of man

Old Dude with paper in hand:
For law and order, read all about it, Make another plan

Strange Signal:
4, 6, 12 (undecipherable) no more boys

Local Observer:
Try Green Lantern or the Caped Crusader

His Friend:
But they're always out of town

Local Observer:
Sipping candy liquor on a Sunday beach

His Friend:
Yeah, they're always out of reach

Local Observer:
But Superman's gone, the morning papers read

Drunken Englishman:
No, he couldn't be!
I knew he's dead!
He couldn't be dead

Local Observer:
He's invincible and we need him in this town

Roving Reported in Istanbul (televised):
Uh, what will life be without Superman around?

News only Channel 17:
This is the latest on channel 17 news...Jimmy Olson wrote the story
and Lois Lane provided the tears

Paper Boy:
Read all about it!
Read all about it!

Dick West:
The start of "The Turbulent Years"

(12 YEARS LATER - SOMEWHERE IN NORTHERN ALASKA)
Strange Signal:
Uh, which one is the ground system
And blowing smoke out the eyes of another
And drilling two holes in the bottom of the Earth
Where life could be once again
Like it once was
In the ice age
In a kingdom long ago
Without chance
Without hope
Without vision
And therefore:
Always creating the same effect
Without ever knowing...
...Why
