Song Lyrics

So, I'm sitting here listening to Humanity by Scorpions. It's a great song by the way. And decided to finally look up their lyrics. Now, I've been listening to this song for a few weeks and I think I know what he's saying most of the time. He does after all speak fairly clearly.

However, there is one section to this song that seems quite odd to me. And *as far as what I hear* it goes as follows:

It's over. What? To your insanity
You sold your soul to feed your manatee
Your fantasies and lies

Now, here is this great song. And in the middle, he throws in a line about selling his sole to feed a "manatee". Why? Does he actually have a pet manatee? Or is he just some bizarre musician that is obsessed with these odd mammals. Well, after looking at the lyrics today. I realize I'm a *bit* off on the lyrics. Here's the real line.

It's au revoir to your insanity
You sold your soul to feed your vanity
Your fantasies and lies

Sooo... Uh... This makes a bit more sense, but now after singing about the Scorpions manatee for so long, I feel like the poor guy is getting left out. So you know what. The manatee will remain in my version. Screw vanity. I'll feed my manatee!

Coolest Car Ever

The last 30 seconds of this had me hook, line, and sinker.

Radiohead - Geeked out

Though it takes awhile to get going, this is truely amazing. I'd suggest listening to the original version of the song first if you haven't heard it.
