"Terror & Hubris In The House Of Frank Pollard" as written by and Blythe/morton/adler/campbell/adler....
All the fucked up things trap
And punish me I cannot explain my problem.
Kill my hopeless life I cannot be hypnotized.
You owe me.
Push aside the veil to welcome in the visitors.
Eyes like halogen illuminate the soma
Peering out of spherical night mask.
Paleolithic subconscious icons
Lumber through dreamscape archetype of archangel.
Topside it's far worse, infants painted gauze
Peer through murky jars, soon I'm wearing the skin
Of the morning star.
Green locks my name fills an empty banner.
Frank, what have you gotten me into now?
I am not afraid to speak my heart and mind
It cannot be saved sell me over. Fuck your hopeless
World, I am blacker than the sun.
Tragedy. Have you seen the speedy, yes?
Bleeds through the sleep onto the page.
I'm sailin'.

    General Commentthis song kicks ass so hard. the intro is badass and the whole song is great. it'd be nice if somebody could tell me something about the lyrics though. i get most of it but what frank pollard is he singing about? is it the crazy guy in The Bad Place by dean koontz or is it the football player or what?

    General Commentwithout offending LoG, is it a girl singing at the start? a butch girl, obviously, but a girl? sounds kinda like the singer from Kittie, perhaps.

    General CommentThe start of the song is not a girl singing, but it is not Randy either. If you look at the album credits or whatever the hell they are called in the CD booklet, additional vocals on this song are by Steve Austin I think his name is. I think he is the producer or something and that is his hi pitched voice in the beginning of the song that sounds a little different than Randy's.

    General Commentthis song is about a person that randy used tio know"frank pollard"and about all the crazy shit that happened in the house,I would imagine drug related mischief,I have a similar place,this is what randy said in revolver about the song in fact they give meanings to every song on new american gospel,including letter to the unborn which is fuckin heartwrenching to read

    General CommentRandy actually said in a Revolver interview that the song was about two things.

    The first thing was about Frank Pollard's paintings, which would be the product of strange dreams that Pollard would have.

    The second thing was that whenever they were at Pollard's house, really weird, surreal things would happen in it that nobody could explain.

    He also notes that he has long since lost touch with Pollard (In the interview, that is.)
