about

On a whim one day, I decided to write a song about Ed Wood and his notoriously bad (in the most entertaining way) 1959 film "Plan 9 from Outer Space." As I started digging, however, I got distracted by the man who provides the framing narration: The Amazing Criswell. In addition to providing his voice to Ed Wood's nonsensical dialogue, Criswell was also a well-known psychic who made astonishingly specific (and wildly inaccurate) predictions about a whole host of things. And so I changed my plans, and this song is the result.

lyrics

You can call it science-fiction
But that doesn't make it so
You can scoff at my predictions
But someday you'll all know

You may think you're clever
But I bet you'll be surprised
When the space ray hits Denver
And all the metal's rubberized

And when Mae West
Becomes president
And we travel to the moon
When the shoe fits
You'll all have to admit
That I'm not just a loon

When the cravings spread like fire
And people lose control
They'll give into horrific desires
And consume each other whole

You will all act shocked
Though you were forewarned
You should have listened when I talked
Instead my prophecies you scorned

But when Mae West
Becomes president
And we travel to the moon
When the shoe fits
You'll all have to admit
That I'm not just a loon

And in the final days
When the Earth is torn asunder
If you walk over my grave
You'll hear me laughing six feet under

When Mae West
Becomes president
And we travel to the moon
When the shoe fits
You'll all have to admit
That I'm not just a loon
