Year: 1996

When I was only a zygote I still remember the time When there was nothing to know or to think about Except the sound of my mind And the sound from outside

Sensurround Down at the bottom Sensible to ear and sternum And the world first spoke to me in sensurround

If mom had known she was expecting She might have gone to see Jaws Instead of picking the film where the sound effects Came right up through the floor And I'd be differently formed

Sensurround Down at the bottom Sensible to ear and sternum And the world first spoke to me in sensurround

Accidentally in a coal mine It was found When they accidentally dug too far down And found the sensurround

I still don't know who conceived it Or where they got the idea But there it was in the aisle by the exit sign A woofer covered in wood To shake the womb when it should

Sensurround Down at the bottom Sensible to ear and sternum Made the fakeness realistic When the action went ballistic One degree shy of sadistic And the world first spoke to me in sensurround

If I could swim under the water Without having to breathe If I could follow the trail to the ocean floor I think I know what there'd be Down there waiting for me

Sensurround Down at the bottom Sensible to ear and sternum Made the fakeness realistic When the action went ballistic One degree shy of sadistic And the world first spoke to me in sensurround
