When i arrived on planet health
in the state of being well
surrounded by self consciousnesses
and body images
i visited the food pyramid
in the desert of vitamins
i found a desired heart rate
and a mouth-to-mouth rescussitate

i'm feeling great tonight
i'm feeling great tonight

i was trained in diversity
in the garden of puberty
where they heimlich maneuvered me
and they showed me how to make a baby
i found my friends in a forest of lungs
where we just said no to drugs
our intercourse was well protected
we made love with each others' eyes

we're feeling great tonight
we're feeling great tonight

then i found out where you're sent
when you're sick and sad and old
they kick you off of planet health
into a universe of cold

stop drop and roll
stop drop and roll
stop drop and roll
stop drop and put out the fire
we're feeling great tonight
we're feeling great tonight...

"Like the plot to a lost dystopian sci-fi, the song outlines life on "Planet Health" -- a place where body-image has become a tyrannical philosophy. Here, advice on healthy diet and sexuality has become law and the food pyramid has become a church. Of course non-attendance means eviction from Planet Health.

Planet Health is Mount Olympus sans the fun; a place where David Cameron and Gillian McKeith make out into eternity, never aging, never putting on weight. It's the other side of Radiohead's 'Fitter Happier', where the new caring conservatives have slapped lippy on the pig on antibiotics and called it 'sexy'. "
