added lyrics in the live shows after ruby vroom came out:
Six hoodlums, dicey
Their faces apostrophed with headphones
Surround you on the corner of Elizabeth and Spring
And disperse in six directions
Each to scream off from the apple
of the atom
first heard in "The Brooklynites", which is so eliptical I'm not even going to try to figure out the lyrics
What it means, according to M. Doughty:
Kind of a weird hallucination about the hell of my imagined future life as a writer I once had.
Incidentally, M. Doughty had never been to LA when he wrote this song. It still captures Los Angleles' spirit better than any other song I've heard...
