(Ok I think that's enough)

These are the real lyrics of Dirty Frank, if you haven't noticed, when you click on an album, it'll show you the tracklist, and, when you click on a song, you can see the stats,. as well as the lyrics. 

Dirty Frank is one of my favorite PJ songs, and one I can't resist singing along to when it plays. I was working in a story late at night, and listened to my Pearl Jam playlist. Dirty Frank played, and, at two am, I get into a very deep and philosophical state of mind. I heard the lyrics, and if you think about it, I think there might be a subtle comical association with the way Ed wrote the lyrics. It seems humorous to me, subtly. Nothing that will make me laugh a little per se, but there does seem to be humor associated with the lyrics. Again, this could also be a heavily metaphorical take on the life of a typical rockstar, hence, the mention of groupies. I see this song several different ways, and I thought I would share my views with you. What do you guys think?

    I think it's meant to disturb and perturb. Cause a slight wonder.
    I think it's also a flight of fancy to ponder.
    Think maybe one shouldn't,
    Give it too much thought. 
    Cus overthinking may cause,
    One to become distraught.
    Beyond that I know that I know nothing.
    And within that I'll find a lil bit of something.
    As you were...
