"Lacquer Head" as written by Les Claypool, Reid L. Iii Lalonde and Bryan Kei Mantia....
Sometimes bored and sometimes lonely
Pimple faced and rather homely
He wasn't much for socializin'
The TV kept a mesmerizin'

In one ear and out the other
Picked up a trick from his older brother
Got him a can of sniffin' sauce
Pinned his mind up on a cross

Lacquer head knows but one desire
Lacquer head sets his skull on fire
Lacquer head knows no in betweens
Huffin' on bags of gasoline

Sniffin' paint since the seventh grade
She was high on gin and Gatorade
On turpentine she lost her luck
Fell in front of a speeding pick-up truck

He was a boy of soft demeanor
And he loved his carburetor cleaner
The vapor made a sweet aroma
He sniffed himself into a coma

Lacquer head feeds his one desire
Lacquer head sets his brain on fire
Lacquer head knows no in betweens
Huffin' on bags of gasoline

Keep on sniffin' till yer brain goes pop

    General Commentim suprised Fred durst could have anything to do with something this good. This song is incredible and the bass break in it is mind blowing. Les is one of the greatest bassists to ever live.

    General Commentthis song is about solvent abuse which has already been established but it tells the tale of two kids who both abuse solvents. Les himself talks about it on the animals should not try to act like people commentry

    General CommentThis song, as stated by Mr. Claypool him self, is an "Anti-Drugs" message. The problem MTV had with it was that it was too graphic of an Anti-Drugs message, so the video was banned.
