"Black Tongue" as written by and Nicholas Joseph Zinner Karen Lee Orzolek....
Hot (Aww)

You can keep your black tongue
Well I found at the mortuary
You know I'm gonna want some want some
We'll hide in the back room gonna have a packed suit
With this you will regret
Just let it be your yeah, yeah, yeah

Sonny kept his ring on
Red tape so ordinary
Love I feel like it was gone, gone, gone, gone
Lets do this like a prison break,
I want to see you scream and shake.

[Chorus:]
Boy you just a stupid bitch
And girl you just a no good dick...

Hot

Were gonna keep it in the family
Yeah well even though were on the run
You know they're gonna want some, want some
Well hide in the back room gonna have a packed suit
With this you will regret
Just let it be your yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]

    General Commenti'm surprised there aren't more comments on this song! it's one of my faves from them, and the lyrics are so obscure. i've found alot of flaws with the lyrics posted above; for instance i'm pretty sure its "we're high in the bathroom gonna have a pack soon" and not "we'll hide in the bathroom gonna have a packed suit" and "sonny kept his ring on" not "kept his rain on"

    there is one interpretation that jump out at me: it's about just being young and dumb and doing dumb shit just because you can still get away with it. These two kids are going through a rebellious phase, hence references to "getting high in the back room gonna have a pack soon" and "prison breaks" and being "on the run." right now they're being "stupid bitches and no good dicks" because it's fun and they can.

    General Commentin europe, "black tongue" is old fashioned slang for ass licking.

    or maybe this song is about chows....

    My InterpretationOther songs of theirs have referenced themes of incest (cold light comes to mind), I don't think it's at all literal, but just a metaphor.

    General CommentI think this song really shows just how well Karen can throw her voice around at whim and bring it back seamlessly.

    General Commenti think the "we can keep it in the family" line is what makes people think it's about incest. luckily karen is an only child.
