Six chevy's in the front yard, a thousand empty coors, is all it takes to make me different/And it's like you never knew the effect it had on you/Pop another top. Today's lesson how to live with these cracked out mother fuckers/And it's like you never knew the effect they had on you/Mom's cookin' shit in bed, no angels for the living dead/Light the propane/Boiling the medicine, taste it is it done/I've only done it a couple times, so take this pill for me/Give your daddy a hand/Open the batteries like I showed you/Precious lithium I own you like you own this single wide lot.

    General CommentThe band said it was about that themselves. It looks like the kids are helping their parents get the drugs, but in the end they were let to burn (although the lyrics never seem to imply that they die...)

    General CommentAha! My mom was complaining about music where people scream and said to show me a favorite song of mine and it's lyrics so she knew what they were screaming about, and I showed her this one and told her the lyrics were about a family who owned a meth lab and when the trailor burnt they got the drugs out but let their kids die. She asked what did the part about opening batteries meant, and I said that lithium was used in batteries (I did a project on lithium once). But, I was looking around online to prove that when I found this: drug-rehabs.org/… (Scroll down to the bit that says "Mississippi Drub Rehab and Alcohol, News"

    The site fits so perfectly with the song I wonder if the band saw this page and wrote about it.

    Quotes from the site:
    "Deputies in Mississippi recently pulled over a pick up on a routine traffic stop and discovered a meth lab in its bed."...""A lab can actually be set up in the trunks of cars or the bed of a truck."

    Quote from Japam:
    "Mom's cookin' shit in the bed".

    Those obviously relate. Mom is cooking meth in the back of the truck.

    Quote from the site:
    "Some of the common chemicals used in meth production include lithium metal, extracted from batteries"

    Quote from Japam:
    "Give your daddy a hand, Open the batteries like I showed you, Precious lithium"

    The father is asking the child to open the batteries and get the lithium out in order to make the meth.

    Other lines like "Boiling the medicine, taste it, is it done?" probably just further establish the idea that meth is being made.

    The beginning of the song, about the thousand empty coors, is probably talking about how being drunk is impairing their judgment.

    Now, where does the meth lab actually burn down? I don't know, "Light the propane" is my guess, and the propane caused the lab to burn down. I don't know where the kids die either...

    General CommentThis song is about a family that had a meth plant in their trailor. The meth lab caused a fire and the parents made sure their drugs escaped the blaze, but left their children to die.

    General CommentThey're inside the sleeve for the album. I don't have the album, but my friend does and he said he'd type them up later.

    General CommentI'm not seeing where you got the whole "lab causes a fire, parents save drugs, let kids die" thing.
