"Dracula From Houston" as written by and Scott Humphrey Rob Zombie....
Got no future and a great big past
Little bitty guy on the rim of my glass
Gotta meet the plane so I can get my monkey
Teach him to be cool but a little bit funky
Got no credit and I got no fear
Got about a buck, so I can buy a beer
Gotta see a doctor about the words that I said
Gotta get a bike and I gotta paint it red

Oh no, we gotta go
We're not goin' to live forever
Why, why, we gotta die
You know that we'll be together
Hey, hey, we gotta say
I could never be a saviour
You don't have to be there
'Cause I'm never, never, never coming home

Three feet deep in a slow motion wreck
I was walkin' the walk an' I was talkin' to the best
I was wrinkled an' shriveled an' steppin' out of line
Playin' the end against the middle an' losin' every time
I was veinious an' heinious an' cripple an' sad
Thought I was invincible, the baddest of the bad
Then I woke up one mornin' and stepped out of bed
Had to get a bike. Had to paint it red

Oh no, we gotta go
We're not goin' to live forever
Why, why, we gotta die
You know that we'll be together
Hey, hey, we gotta say
I could never be a saviour
An' I know that you'll miss me
'Coz I'm never, never, never coming home

Crazy (I'm crazed, I want to tell you about it)
Crazy (I'm crazed, I want to tell you about it)
Crazy (I'm crazed, I want to tell you about it)
Crazy (I'm crazed, I want to tell you about it)
Crazy (I'm crazed, I want to tell you about it)

Oh no, we gotta go
We're not goin' to live forever
Why, why, we gotta die
You know that we'll be together
Hey, hey, we gotta say
I could never be a saviour
You don't have to be there
'Cause I'm never, never, never coming home

Staring at disbelief out at the gloom
I was forced with remorse to learn the bassoon
I got real good in about six years
Started playing around for a couple of beers
Then one day I was playing at the gig
An' in walked the monkey with a couple of funky friends
He came right over an' said "this is what you do"
"You're gonna get a bike. You're gonna paint it blue."

Ah

Oh no, we gotta go
We're not goin' to live forever
Why, why, we gotta die
You know that we'll be together
Hey, hey, we gotta say
I could never be a saviour
You don't have to be there
'Cause I'm never, never, never coming home

    General CommentDoes anyone remember a little thing they used to show on Nickelodean back in the early 80s where this little bitty guy was painted on a glass and the glass would dance around and sing?

    Anyway I think this song is about remebering all the silly shit that is stuck in our mind for NO APPARENT REASON and won't just fade away like the memories we would like to KEEP. It's also about how we all have to do some strange things that don't make any sense at the time, but we do them for no reason, just to be doing something. Can anyone translate the Spanish lines?

    Oh, if anyone speaks French, how about a translation of Let's Talk About Cars from the Electiclarryland album? I've looked all over for the lyrics but no luck...

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song doesn't mean anything. Most of their songs don't.

    General CommentI love this song SO MUCH!!!!
    I have no idea what it's about, but oh well...I agree with dontpanic42 though. I'd say that their explanation kind of makes sense of it...as much sense as you can possibly make of it, I suppose.
    It would most certainly be good if I found out what ni por nada meant...:-D but I think that an enchillada is a kind of Mexican food...........
    But yeah...I love "Weird Revolution", coolest CD ever!

    General CommentIt's a shame that most of you guys just know them from Pepper and haven't heard their early (best) stuff. Try "Locust Abortion Technician", "Hairway to Steven" and "Psychic...Powerless...Another Man's Sac" to hear the real Buttholes.

    General CommentThe Spanish line is actually "Este noche, enchilada, in Chicago, ni por nada." Means "This night, enchilada (indeed a Mexican food), in Chicago, nor for nothing."

    General CommentI like some of the major label stuff (Electric Larry Land is a pretty fun listen for instance), but yeah, this is pretty much their nadir. The Butthole Surfers should not try to emulate Smashmouth (nor should anyone else).

    General Commentman, what happened to this band, honestly...they used to be so adventurous, and now they're safe enough for Zach Braff.
