Track Name: Methamphetamine blues pt. 1
Methamphetamine blues

I saw her neon figure in that double suede she said "We're gonna hang a nigger by the hanging tree we're gonna bleed him like you said until he come undone we're gonna fuck him 'till he's dead under the desert sun."

I have a little demon that lives in my bed I killed him in his sleep and now the bitch is dead we burned his naked body as a sacrifice we smoked his worn out ashes in that old peace pipe.

They took me to a place up past the mountainside where the ground was soiled tasteless like the blood red sky the demons had their babies by the riverside the devil called him "samurai of suicide"

I told you not to worry take the vitamins they're gonna cut off little jimmy with a safety pin we're breathing in and put he's got breaks in his spine nodding in and out he's got a lucid mind.

So grab your cutlery and kitchen knives
Grab your cutlery and kitchen knives
We're gonna have ourselves a good time,
Gonna have ourselves
Track Name: Benzodiazepine blues
Benzodiazepine blues

She don't know this but she wants me
You can't kill me cuz I'm already dead

I can't help your clinically insane
All these pills are damaging my brain

Aren't they?
Track Name: Heathen Child
Heathen child

My blood is poison now
Blood is sap
A thousand miles from hell
I'm falling into a death trap

Give me some piece of mind
Something to live by
I lost my faith when I
Could never be satisfied

So tell me
Why the guns and
Why the thunder?
I finally get to see you cos we're
Finally going under

Opened my eyes
Under soft light
They dipped me in the water and I
Cried and cried and cried

Nuclear city came
Eruptions in the sky
Our bodies here on earth that are
Never supervised

Heathens came
They know you by your first name
They talked to you in scripture and they
Tell you you're a sinner
