LYRICS

The Flaming Lips “There Should Be Unicorns” Lyrics

Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
It should be loud as fuck
Hope the swans don’t die
There should be burning sun
And naked slaves
And if the police show up
We’ll give them so much money it will make them cry
And forgive us

Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes

Yeah, there should be day glow strippers
Ones from the Amazon
Some edible butterflies
We put ketchup on
Some motorcycle stunts
That always crash
And if the police show up
We’ll bribe them into helping us steal the light of love
From the rainbow sluts that live next door

Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes

The Flaming Lips have shared a strange music video for “There Should Be Unicorns,” a track from their 2017 album, Oczy Mlody. Watch it above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube.

This ranks up there with some of the Lips’ most creative videos — of which, there are many. The costumes, sets, and visual effects are well suited for the “Unicorn” song’s trippy sound and outlandish lyrics. Wayne Coyne wears rainbow wings and rides a unicorn. There’s also glitter, confetti, and a colorful bowl of Cheerios.

Other videos the band has shared from the LP are “The Castle,” “How??,” and “Sunrise (Eyes Of The Young).”

Oczy Mlody is currently available on Amazon. You can also stream the album for free and read our review here on Zumic.

The Flaming Lips have also announced 2017 North American tour dates in support of the upcoming LP. For more, check out The Flaming Lips Zumic artist page.
