One, two, three ...
- intro -

Go away, you're eating big faces
Bend down and eat your shoelaces
Next move you've gotta decide what's right


Kill your momma, kill your daddy
I'm the beast man so understand me
Understand me

Hey, the way goes small there, and the way goes high
Jumped out of your old fish mask today
When you told me I was out of sap
I almost died right in your lap, today
When you told me I was out of sap
I almost died right in your lap, today

    General CommentWhat this thing might mean to me is maybe he has grudges against his parents.

    General Comment"Kill your mama, kill your daddy" reminds me of Buddhism. In the 9th Century Lin-chi stated, "...if you meet your parents, kill your parents. If you meet your relatives, kill your relatives." It wasn't meant to be taken literally:

    "He was challenging them to get past their daydreams of enlightenment and their dependence on custom, ceremony and traditional piety so that they could see the Dharma directly for themselves." (Ryuei Michael McCormick: Clinging to the Buddha)

    The following line, "I'm the peace man so understand me," fits the Buddhist interpretation as well.

    The last four lines screams 'addiction' to me in the most heart-wrenching of ways. I imagine the 'sap' to be the chosen substance of addiction. I interpret it as this person being so emotionally attached to this substance that when he was out of it, he "almost died right on your lap."

    Perhaps the dying is symbolic for something...hmmm?

    Anyway...that's just one interpretation.

    You DO know no official lyrics for this song have been released, right? I's impossible to know for sure what the lyrics are.
