Left Behind: Incubus "Pardon Me"
"Pardon Me" is a song by rock band Incubus, the song is released as the first single from their third album "Make Yourself". It was the first Incubus song to receive a considerable amount of radio airplay, reaching number three on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and number seven on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
The extremely random thing about this song is as you continue you voyage into this song the Chorus screams a blatant "Pardon me while I burst into flames"
The song describes a state of confusion, with allusions to spontaneous combustion. Lead singer Brandon Boyd says he was inspired to write the song after making a connection between images of spontaneous combustion in a magazine and "some turmoil in [his] life, both good and bad", he related the man's problems to his own and was inspired to write the lyric "Pardon me while I burst into flames" on his hand at that spot.
Little too deep for me but dammit if the song doesn't rock...
