Ok, so going back to their first album on the track "This Is A Call", there is a line that says "Minicyn is pretty, minicyn is good...". It's been driving me crazy for years! What is Minicyn??? And does the lyrics make sense at all to anyone? Don't get me wrong, it's an awesome song, I just don't get some of it. If anyone knows or has any ideas, please post! Thanks!

Isn't it Rhytalin (sp?)... if so its a drug and I'm pretty sure its used to ween addicts off hard drugs like how methadone is used for heroin addicts... I'm pretty sure thats what it is anyway :D

That's it. It's prescribed to fight infection, including:

Acne
Amebic dysentery
Anthrax
Cholera
Gonorrhea (when penicillin cannot be given)
Plague
Respiratory infections such as pneumonia
Rocky Mountain spotted fever
Syphilis (when penicillin cannot be given)
Urinary tract infections caused by certain microbes

it's ritalin (methylphenidat). its a drug used for kids with attention deficit hyperactivity syndrome. it works like amphetamine.

Minocen is also mentioned in the song. That's what the thread starter is asking about. Maybe Dave was more referring to Minocen as an acne medicine.

yea, it says visiting in the beginning, but it also says Minicyn later in the song...here are the lyrics:
visiting is pretty
visiting is good
seems that all they ever wanted was a brother
this can be a secret
we can keep it good
even all the ever wanting had a problem
this is a call to all my
past resignations
it's been too long

fingernails are pretty
fingernails are good
seems that all they ever wanted was a marking

them balloons are pretty
big and say they should
ever fall to ground
call the magic marker

this is a call to all my
past resignations
this is a call to all
this is a call to all my
past resignations
it's been too long

minicyn is pretty
minicyn is good
seems that all the cysts and mollusks tend to barter

ritalin is easy
ritalin is good
even all the ones
who watered down the daughter

what a crazy ass song...I love it!

Do you mean Ritalin? That was a drug used to treat kids that were hyperactive or suffered from what is now known as ADD or ADHD.

I miss the lyrics section FF.com had along with the discography section on their site:)
I love this song and yeah it's full of meaning-can mean what you want it to mean.

Seems about friends and family...life and how we fall prey to societal stigmas/labels and quick to just treat everything with meds instead of just love, support, and understanding ...(EXCEPT! Cysts and Mollusks!!!!!!)

(...too much work-easier to "water them down"-so to speak) Love them all despite shortcomings and problems-zits and all!

As a society, we tend to do this with drugs, alcohol, prescribed pharmaceuticals and OTC meds.....

This is the most accurate that I've found:

This is a Call:

visiting is pretty
visiting is good
seems that all they ever wanted was a brother
this can be a secret
we can keep it good
even all the ever wanting had a problem

this is a call to all my
past resignations
this is a call to all

fingernails are pretty
fingernails are good
seems that all they ever wanted was a marking

them balloons are pretty big
and say they should
ever fall to ground
call the magic marker

this is a call to all my
past resignations
this is a call to all
this is a call to all my
past resignations
it's been too long

minicyn is pretty
minicyn is good
seems that all the cysts and mollusks tend to barter

ritalin is easy
ritalin is good
even all the ones that watered down the daughter



this is a call to all my
past resignations
this is a call to all
this is a call to all my
past resignations
it's been too long
