I'll be the madness that carries you away
I'll be the sadness to light your darkest day
I'll be the desert island where you can be free
I'll be the vulture you can catch and eat

    This DOES sound like the Mystery Science Theater theme song.

    I have no idea what they are singing about in this song, but I'm sure it's really deep and profound. It's one of those songs you end up listening to in the middle of living your life. It's great to drive to and it even sounds great when one is chopping onions and cilantro in the kitchen, and I speak from experience.

    My mother just told me that this song sounds like the theme song from Mystery Science Theater 3000. I'm not sure how to feel
