"Zodiac Lung" as written by and David Wyndorf....
The shape of a zodiac lung
Is beckoning like a bad Christ
It hovers above your head

It's pulling the world over my life
If you don't hear a word I'm saying
You can't cover it with your hear
You can't hide it in your army coat
You've got the Miltown demon stare
You forgot all the letters that you wrote

You can't hear a word I'm saying
No you can't hear a thing at all
When I die, it'll be because of you
There I'll lie and it'll all point to you
It's fuck ups like you that always seem to take it all
It's fuck ups like you that never seem to go away

The shape of the zodiac lung
Is like the shape of the back of my hand
And I'll knock you across this room
And I'll bury my head in the sand
You won't feel my love type baby
No you won't feel a thing at all

When I die it'll be because of you
There I'll lie and it'll all point to you
It's fuck ups like you that always seem to get it all
It's fuck ups like you that never seem to die
I don't know why

    My InterpretationPretty sure I got this one.

    If you luck up Milltown, you get both a town in NJ, Mr. Wyndorf's home state, and also a sedative drug. So we get a Milltown demon stare, and reference to someone who can neither hear nor feel. So, this song is about being in love with a drug addict.
    The 'army coat' is referenced in another song on this album, 'Snake Dance', in the line '. . .we gotta girl in an army coat.' Also, in a live performance of this song, Mr. Wyndorf introduces it by saying that as a songwriter, it is his responsibility to write a love song, but he can never finish a love song, because they get bitter.
    So this is pretty personal stuff, I think.
