    In this life I've seen everything I can see woman,
    I've seen lovers flying through the air hand in hand
    I've seen babies dancing in the midnight sun,
    And I've seen dreams that came from the heavenly skies above
    I've seen old men crying at their own grave sides
    And I've seen pigs all sitting watching, picture slides
    But I never seen nothing like you.

    This means the singer HAS seen something like the "you" character before. The song is clearly therefore about mistaking the numbing comfort of repetition and familiarity for "love".

    Repetition... Familiarity... When you keep going back, it could BE love.

    But with "I've seen pigs all sitting watching picture slides" and "babies dancing in the midnight sun", it could be, not "going back" because of love, but instances of deja vu brought on by the use of lysergic acid diethylamide in the past. Either way the poem/lyric seems to be ~ thinly disguised ~ about numbing oneself from the horrors of the human condition, e.g. "lovers flying through the air hand in hand" referring to the extraordinary number of aircraft disasters already in 2014.

    Reference to the scourge of explicit porn.

    I've seen babies dancing in the midnight sun

    Tipsy teenage girls working in Scandinavian nightclubs.

    And I've seen dreams that came from the heavenly skies above

    Consumer greed causing acid rain in the 1970s.

    I've seen old men crying at their own grave sides

    Labour Party managers contemplating losing their contingent of Scots MPs.

    Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away
    Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air
    You better watch out
    There may be dogs about
    I've looked over Jordan and I have seen
    Things are not what they seem

    She may be the face I can't forget.
    Will it cost me? Yeah you bet!!!
    I've been burned and I'm back for more.
    This thing called love is just a chore.

    The bonds that bind are tight and choking.
    I sit at the other end of the bar smoking.
    I make my move and am shot down in flames.
    Why must we play these silly old games?

    Love for sale, love for rent.
    Surely your time could be better spent.
    You look at her and say, " is there something between us?
    Which one rules? The head? The heart? Maybe just the penis.

    I hear obscure tunes of the anti-establishment ringing in my ears...Let's try this one more time.


    Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
    Master the art of karate,
    Lo, we shall rise up,
    And then we'll make the ()'s eyes water.

    Well I think you know what I'm trying to say (woman)
    That is I'd like to save you for a rainy day
    I've seen enough of the world to know
    That I've got to get it all to get it all to grow


    It's raining,
    It's pouring...

    The streets are all wet
    It's time to Move.

    These are the seasons of emotion
    and like the winds they rise and fall
    This is the wonder of devotion
    I see the torch we all must hold
    This is the mystery of the quotient
    Upon us all a little rain must fall

    These are the seasons of emotion

    Grievers slapping their own heads at fractious monsoon season funerals in dangerous looking countries.

    and like the winds they rise and fall

    Demented gales annihilating noble trees across leafy decent south east England.

    This is the wonder of devotion

    909 people found lying on the grass in Jonestown.

    I see the torch we all must hold

    With those batteries that leak poison into the soil of innocent women and children.

    This is the mystery of the quotient

    The insidious errors of unaccountable economists.

    Upon us all a little rain must fall

    The absolutely appalling reality of life in the Atacama Desert.

    Usually you start off with mild petting and then it just takes it's course to the climax.
