"Sucker Train Blues" as written by Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, David G Kushner, Scott Richard Weiland and Mathew William Sorum....
Hands are shakin' got your finger on the trigger
Jesus ain't complainin' gonna figure it out
Somebody raped my tapeworm abortion
Come on motherfuckers and deliver the cow

Brain and body melting while there's roaches multiplying
It's the alien infection it's the coming of Christ
All these sentimental halos and these consequential angels
When I'm runnin' with the devil don't deliver the fight

Don't look at me now
Fell too fast your wings won't hold
Don't look at me now
Fell too fast your wings won't hold

Yeah and when I want to
Yeah I will find you
Yeah and when I want to
Yeah I will blind you

Brains are frying while the kings and queens are dying
Satan won the race and the miracle mile
Somebody raped my tapeworm abortion
Come on motherfuckers and deliver the cow

Brain and body melting while there's roaches multiplying
It's the alien infection it's the coming of Christ
All these sentimental halos and these consequential angels
When I'm runnin' with the devil don't deliver the fight

Don't look at me now
Fell too fast your wings won't hold
Don't look at me now
Fell too fast your wings won't hold

Yeah and when I want to
Yeah I will find you
Yeah and when I want to
Yeah I will blind you

It's all over me now
Let me go, let me go, let me go
What's come over me now
Let me go, let me go, let me go
It's all over me now
Let me go, let me go, let me go
What's come over me now

Johnny sat down beside the old oak tree
Cut off his hand what did he see
All of the animals are dead
The rats have crawled through his house and out through their head
One of them ate a hole in the sky
To believe this would be a fate worse than dying

Yeah and when I want to
Yeah I will find you
Yeah and when I want to
Yeah I will blind you

I will find you
I will blind you

    General CommentThanks Wings of a Wolf for some decent insight... This song is really interesting, and it's meaning is difficult to interpret. It reminds me alot of the Dean Koontz novel "Seize the Night". If you read this novel, you'd know what I mean. It's all about a parallel universe that's ruled by the devil, and many of the lyrics above are derived from this story. There's a scientific project gone awry called "Mystery Train" that sends people into the future. However, they don't really go into the future, they go into a parallel universe that is like Hell with a devil and "All the animals are dead". The people come back with worms coming out of their body, hence "somebody raped my tapeworm abortion". Also, the title "Sucker Train Blues" sounds like a reference to the "Mystery Train" project and the worms that take over, or the suckers. The worms are planted by the devil, who shoots the worm seed at you. The worms eventually take over your body, and come out your eyes "Yeah and when I want to
    Yeah I will blind you". Because of these similarities and the references to Armaggedon and the devil, I'm fairly sure this is about "Seize the Night". It's a very cool book, and this song fits it almost perfectly.

    General CommentOkay, I decided that I definitely needed to comment on this song since no one used this as anything other than a "this song rocks" kind of post. That's great and all, but really.

    With "come on motherfuckers and deliver the cow," you know the saying "well, don't have a cow?" He's saying just come on and get it over already.

    This song is about someone's despair about themselves and how they don't believe that they can really be helped "don't look at me now, your wings won't hold." He believes that he is now "running with the devil" and that he can't be saved, even though he wants it.

    I don't get the "Johnny" part, though.

    General CommentScott Weiland wrote the lyrics...what do you expect. Actually, this is a really good song but I've never quite gotten the part about motherfuckers delivering cows...?
