broken alice holy pat on the back and back and back force open wide no way back she whispered lizard kiss rhtetoric bitch pass on answering psycho babble with no security power escapes to the toilet room in the lew of its own reflection she really knocks me out she sits she pukes her point whoever will listen paranoid doubts shes really rocked out she moves her mouth fault pat on the back and back and pat on the back and force it she sits she listens she moves her mouth she sits she pukes its her fault whatever intelligence fault push down with the purest crystal around push it in whisper name feel it a double weighed out games invoke she mixes knowing that all wont upset herself lizard kiss strung out break mutilate all they see on the neck in and over top of what appears to be real chill and tempt eye no time to see reality broken alice

    General CommentThe lyrics here appear without the background voices which sound angry and, I could swear, are saying something barely intelligible ending in the "N-word". At one point, the angry voice says that thing again and as it finishes, Ogre says the bit about her (the voice is female) puking "her point". For this reason, for the longest time I thought this song was about racism. Anger, insecurity and stupidity were all described against that angry, intermittent backdrop.

    However, I know the band were involved in a lot of drug abuse- particularly at the time this song was done. The engineer died from a heroin overdose. "...push down with the purest crystal around...push it in..." invokes images of drug abuse. So now I'm thinking this song was written about Mick Jagger's gardener (see Jumpin Jack Flash).

    General CommentActually it's not the 'n-word', it's a sample from Evil Dead "I hope you rot down there!" after Ash is pushed down the hole in the floor into the basement. The name for the song also comes from a line in the same movie.

    General Commentthis is one of the few SP songs that i can't figure out meaning-wise. the Evil Dead voice samples are for effect and theme, but i suspect they have little to do with the lyrical meaning..... a real puzzle.
