The Flaming Lips Thank You Jack White (For the Fiber-Optic Jesus That You Gave Me) Lyrics

Last updated: 04/18/2012 11:00:00 AM

Spoken- Let me tell ya a story about a very special gift I received from a, from a man that I didn’t know very well. But he brightened up the night and made it one of the great shining moments of our long tour.

Goes like this-

Backstage in Detroit
And the room is full of smoke and apprehension
We'd been playing shows
As the warm-up and the band for Beck Hansen
In walks Jack, says - "How'd ya do?" (Oh yeah)
Then he handed me this wonderful statue.

And I said, "Thank you Jack White
For the fiber-optic Jesus that you gave me."
It shined so bright
That I couldn't help believin' it would save me.
When I finally got it home
My whole neighborhood was aglow
And I said, "Thank you Jack White
For the fiber-optic Jesus that you gave me."

(Here comes the pick)
(Oh Yeah)

Jack and Meg are funny
They got a modern backwards-liberal family code
Brother and sister
Playing rock 'n' roll and doing it on the road
I bet that van begin to stink
But then I wonder - oh - what Christ would think.

I said, "Thank you Jack White
For the fiber-optic Jesus that you gave me."
It shined so bright
That I couldn't help believin' it would save me.
And when I finally got it home
My whole neighborhood was aglow
And I said, "Thank you Jack White
For the fiber-optic Jesus that you gave me."
(Nice one)
