"I Walk on Guilded Splinters" as written by and John Creaux....
Some people think they jive me,
But I know they must be crazy
Don't see their misfortune,
I guess they're just too lazy
Je suie le grand zombie
My yellow belt of choisen
Ain't afraid of no tomcat,
Fill my brains with poison

Walk through the fire,
Fly through the smoke
See my enemy,
At the end of their rope
Walk on pins and neeedles
See what they can do
Walk on guilded splinters
With the King of the Zulu

Walk to me, get it, come, come
Walk on guilded splinters
Walk to me, get it, come, come
Walk on guilded splinters
Till I burn up.
Till I burn up.
Till I burn up.
Till I burn up.

I roll out my coffin
Drink poison in my chalice
Pride begins to fade
And you all feel my malice
Put gris-gris on your doorstep
And soon you be in the gutter
Melt your heart like butter,
An-an-and I can make you stutter

Walk to me, get it, come, come
Walk on guilded splinters
Walk to me, get it, come, come
Walk on guilded splinters
Till I burn up.
Till I burn up.
Till I burn up.
Till I burn up.

    General CommentWhy "guilded" splinters? And not "gilded" splinters? (This isn't a spelling mistake by the submitter of these lyrics, it really is spelled like this). But why?

    General CommentThis is one bad ass song! Just saw Panic play this last month. This song is most obviously about voodoo but in particular casting a spell on some one or using gris gris for magic potions. Put gris gris on your doorstep soon you'll be in the gutter, The grand zombie is the snake like god in Louisiana voodoo. Dr. John is conjuring up great imaginary to represent what will happen if you cross him. he is not afraid of anyone of anything and is expressing his voodoo powers. Ain't afraid of no tomcat, fill my brains with poison.
