Wayne Coyne's Head Fixation

The theme shows in song titles such as "Placebo Headwound," "Guy Who Got a Headache and Accidentally Saves the World," "Can't Get You Out of My Head," and "Be My Head." Or in lyrics like, "I accidentally touched my head and noticed that I had been bleeding" (from "The Spark"). Or in videos like Waiting for Superman. Or in ever fricking Flaming Lips performance where Wayne pours fake blood on his head. Also in the documentary "The Fearless Freaks" Wayne got some kid to lay in the middle of the street with fake blood on his head. What's the deal? The documentary mentions that when Wayne worked at Long John Silvers the store was robbed at gunpoint and the robbers had the staff get on the floor and Wayne said he feared his head would be blown off. Does it stem from that? Is all this headwound business a way of coping with that early trauma?

And speaking of fixations, it appears I have a Flaming Lips fixation.

You could do worse.

As I recall, you have.
