I want to tell you a story
About a little man
If I can
A gnome named Grimble Grumble
And little gnomes stay in their home
Eating,Sleeping,Drinking their wine
He wore a scarlet tunic,
A blue green hood,
It looked quite good
He had a big...

    Dmt trip. When breaking through the sound of the ripping cellophane and the welcoming machine gnomes are to do with the spirit drug dmt.

    Here's another idea:

    the gnome represents the members of the band trying new drugs and the fascinating new discoverers they made.

    Okay so the gnome is just a little guy living on his own kind of like how early man would be. He stays inside and drinks his wine. Then he "had a big adventure amidst the grass, fresh air at last". Smoked pot, got high. He found a new way to say hooray! Then I think the next part of the song is him finding mushrooms or something because he starts exploring new places. "look at the sky, look at the river, isn't it gooood?" He's find a new way to say hooooorrayyy
