lyrics

Maybe we've had too much to think.
We could go Monet, or we could teeter on the brink.
Butterfly bombs over the Aries fields,
cuz when the going gets tough, the tough get surreal.
We do the Duchamp stomp at the Dada pop show, we do the Toulouse twist and the Vincent Van Gogh-Gogh!

Chorus: Gogh-Gogh! We do the Vincent Van Gogh-Gogh!

Transcendence is the artist's intention so wave your hands into another dimension!

Crocodile tears through an absinthe haze.
Sugar-cubed in our Cubist days.
Gysin's dream machine decrees the word.
'Cuz when the going gets tough the tough get absurd--that's the word! Yeah, yeah, the Dali hop at the Dada pop show, we do the Toulouse twist and the Vincent Van Gogh-Gogh!

[Chorus]

You put one foot in and then another foot in and then another foot in, yeah, that's how we do it.

[Chorus]
