So who is Captain God Rock in the original song? Also, is that a horn or something beeping in the video version? It seems rather out of place. Don't tell me there was a naughty word there. :o:

One of the things about the song is that when Stone wrote it, he had no idea who Captain God-Rock was..
which may have been the reason it was never even made into a demo.. he told me it never really made sense to him.

what ur hearing on the video is just a basic track with vocals, a guitar, n drums.. it may have even been the 1st time they'd ever played it together

about the car horn.. i wasnt in the band at the time.. ud have to ask him lol

What are the vocals tho'? Can you share the lyrics here? It's probably my own ears but I'm just finding them difficult to make out.

here r the lyrics to 'Captain God-Rock' that u hear on the video...

from my silicon container
i been searchin' for a dream
and all that matters is it doesn't slip away

Captain God-Rock's waitin' for the word
and he alone may handle it
with care enough to live another day

Captain God-Rock won't you tell me
have you ever had a childhood?
have you ever been to heaven?
have you ever listened to someone or felt you didn't know?

Captain, Captain won't you tell me
what the *BEEEP* are we all doin?
do you know yourself or are you merely part of the grand scheme?

Great Aunt Mildred got home early and wanted to pull into the garage, Jim.

Perhaps this is akin to Led Zeppelin's legendary "Mud Shark" incident, Sheri.
No one seems to agree on what happened there either.
