about

Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek’s Dr. Spock) and William Shatner (Captain Kirk) both acquired tinnitus in the mid-60es on the set of an episode of the legendary TV series, as a consequence of a loud stage explosion. Shatner later become the testimonial for the American Tinnitus Association. Vulcans like Spock are noted for their absence of emotions, they are vegetarians and do not drink alcoholics. Every seven years, Vulcan males and females experience a mating drive known as pon farr.

lyrics

Now it’s just a vintage alien touch
And it doesn’t annoy me that much
If the relic of so many adventures
Is only good for costume parties
Those greenish pointed ears
Oh, for so many light years
Not a faun nor an elf on a rock
It could only be me as Dr. Spock

Now that I’m old and with my feet on the ground
I often wonder as I have a beer
Who knows what this world would sound like
Through Vulcanian ears?

The Enterprise flying in outer space
The stillness of void I want to embrace
A Vulcanian heart with no emotion
Doesn’t miss a beat for an explosion
Shouldn’t be worried by this buzzing pain
That I tried and I tried to stop in vain
But fearing I could lose this battle
I explored the space inside the bottle

[refrain]

I wouldn’t mind waiting seven years
To have a go at my next pon farr
Nor to eat as a veggy every day
And keep them tasty drinks away
Humans may get it, as Captain Kirk
And other spacemen of that ilk
But I knew that alien physiology
Does not contemplate Tinnitus for me

[refrain]
