Those lyrics (and the rest of that song) really resonate with me - I feel they describe me perfectly.
The label that best fits me is "hippie" - I love and accept all people, don't believe in monogamy, am "high on life", know my own mind well, do my best to make the world a better place, feel that most social conventions are bullshit, am somewhat spiritual, and have an interest in psychedelia and 60's and 70's counterculture, music and fashion.
I'm also very much a scientist - I did my undergrad at Caltech in Computation and Neural systems. Brains are the coolest thing ever.
It probably says I don't respond to messages. That's because I just moved here, and when I was still in LA I stopped responding knowing I'd be moving soon.
When people ask me where I'm from I generally respond with "everywhere and nowhere", because I grew up as a military brat and moved around a lot. As a result I am very adaptable and very accepting, but possibly also somewhat awkward.
I enjoy intellectual/philosophical/scientific discussions, and am very open - no secrets here!
Working at a startup doing web programming for now. I want to go to grad school for Neuroscience and do the whole academia bit eventually.
Living in an apartment with friends from undergrad. Collecting experience.

(I don't watch much TV, its addiction potential worries me.)
I like just about everything. In general, prog rock, psychedelic rock, stuff that's just plain weird, classic rock, recently learned I enjoy some subgenre of house music whose name I don't know. I'm pretty bad at finding new music for myself, so I tend to start listening to whatever people play around me or invite me to shows for. I don't like rap, hiphop, country, or harsh noise.
Food: I'm really just beginning to get into food. I grew up on fairly bland foods that lacked depth and didn't realize until a couple years ago how much was out there. My favorite flavors are still generally Italian ones, I love tomatoes, basil, garlic, cheese, etc. I don't like peppers, sausage, or spicy foods, though.
