What were they smoking?

There are a lot of weird song lyrics around, or maybe I'm just getting older. Silverchair seems to be the worst offender in the WTF stakes - some prime examples follow:-
The Greatest View explains that you're the analyst, the fungus in my milk.... the what? in where? while on the same album (Diorama) the song After All These Years contains the classic incomprehensible (to me) line Munificent, artless and ascetic, playing like a scared enthusiastic pawn.... To quote our infamous ex-politician, "Please explain!"
At least they're following in the footsteps of the most successful band of their time, The Beatles, who declaimed I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping, still my guitar gently weeps....Yep, nothing like living with a housework nazi.
