Chorus:
Now why did I flash on that - useless information
How does my mind get trapped
Another pointless psychic revelation


Lyrics:
Pointless Psychic Revelations © 1995 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

I know that in the first grade
You ate pink erasers and white paste hors d'oeuvres
When your friends urge you to try tofu
It gets right on your nerve

(Chorus)
Now why did I flash on that - useless information
How does my mind get trapped
Another pointless psychic revelation

I know how much bureau space
Is taken up with your lonely mateless socks
And that your BVDs and t-shirts
Turned bright pink in last week's wash

I know the endless array
Of "light day pads" is getting you all confused
When it's time for new vacuum cleaner bags
I know which kind you use

Now why did I ...

If you need someone to read the tarot
Divining what your future could be
My station's stuck in grey matter muck
Don't even bother asking me
I know alI the colors of the jelly beans 
That you shoved right up your nose
To impress all the guys at recess
When you were just eight years old

Now why did I ...

(Mind full - cerebellum landfill)
(Garbage in garbage out)

About the Song
description: Mind Tricks - Why the hell did I know that?
We figure there's a lot more to this reality than meets the normal waking senses. But sometimes the stuff that comes through is pretty random.

Review quotes:
Barney Quick (Indie-Music.com) "The most sophisticated song is definitely "Pointless Psychic Revelation," which almost raps along to an underlying chant that provides a seamless rhythmic base."
Music Street Journal - "Pointless Psychic Revelation:Layers of vocals make up this a capella number that calls to mind the a capella version of Yes` "Leave It"."
Ben Ohmart - @NZONE (www.atnzone.com)- 'Pointless Psychic Revelation' ... is a wonderful vocal treat, in which 'garbage in garbage out' keeps spinning round and round, like early progressive rock. Sort of folksy. It's short, but to the pointless.
Terry Allen hEARd Magazine (www.ozemail.com.au/~hmag) "The unbelievable accapella of "Pointless Psychic Revelation" just has to be heard to be believed & is a major highlight of the album. "
Shane McLaughlin, Northeast Performer " 'Pointless Psychic Revelation' is an a cappella stream-of-consciousness deep enough to reveal nothing."
