Long Description:
Land of the glass pinecones
They only grow for the full moon
The farmers never gather them
The magic cones are heaven-sent
Land of the glass pinecones
Their seeds are made of rhinestones
The squirrels never scatter them
They know what rhinestone seeds portend

Land of the glass pinecones
They smash on the grass when the wind blows
The splinters fly throughout the land
And pierce the eye of every man

Land of the glass pinecones
The eye now sees what the tree knows
The splinters burn, but then we learn
That when we spend we have to bend
Its all a part of nature's plan
All a part of nature's plan
Land of the glass pinecones

Human Sexual Response was an American new wave band formed in 1978. The band broke up in 1982. They recorded two full-length albums, Fig. 14 (1980) and In a Roman Mood (1981), as well as 1981's Pound EP. Their tune "Jackie Onassis", from Fig. 14, got airplay beyond college radio, while other songs, such as "What Does Sex Mean to Me?" and "Land of the Glass Pinecones", had more of a cult success.

"Land of the Glass Pincones", was a term coined by one of the band members after walking out of a club on Lansdowne Street after hours. It seems, that after the clubs closed for the night, at around 2am, some patrons would leave with a beer or two in hand, and then dump the empty bottle into one of the alleys.

They also did a pretty mean cover of "Cool Jerk"... if you can get past the nurses uniforms.
