Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell

It's one of the quintessential Flaming Lips songs: Emotional lyrics surrounded by sublime and whimsical music. I can't believe I really "discovered" this song a few days ago. I say "discovered" because I've had Yoshimi... for about a year.

I was waiting on a moment
But the moment never came
All the billion other moments
Were just slipping all away
I must have been tripping
Just ego tripping

I was wanting you to love me
But your love it never came
All the other love around me
Was just wasting all away
I must have been tripping
Just ego tripping

I was waiting on a moment
But the moment never came -
But the moment never came -


This song is purely amazing. Discuss.

To me, this is the order of the F'Lips' Top 5:

1. Bad Days (Their best song. period.)
2. Do You Realize?? (It shouldn't be legal for a song like this to be a "Number 2" on any list, but the F'Lips are just that good."
3. Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell (Read above.)
4. What is the Light? ("An Untested Hypothesis Suggesting That the Chemical (In Our Brains) by Which We Are Able to Experience the Sensation of Being in Love Is the Same Chemical That Caused the "Big Bang" That Was the Birth of the Accelerating Universe") (It's impossible to not love at least one aspect of this song, and not sing along to the chorus. Plus the title is ridiculously amazing.)
5. Slow Nerve Action (When the Levee Breaks on acid)
