I'm painting you
and all the ugly things you do.
You're holding a machete
your mustache makes your arms too long.
Goddamn - I got a memory.
Yeah, man, I got a family.
I'll see your face in the closet,
cold cocked in the dark and left for dead
Burn pigs burn, man,
you'll learn pigs learn, yea.

Gonna kick into your pumpkin
gonna put you on a mailing list.
I'm peeling out in your garden,
you better go and count your kids
fuck yeah

I got a piano wire
yeah man, I'm gonna build a fire

gonna follow you down to the park
and gonna throw your shoes in the kite eating tree.

    General Commenti saw pitchfork open for fugazi at gilman street in ... it had to be 1988 or thereabouts? fugazi's first west coast show; crash worship was also on the bill, and pitchfork, who i'd never even heard of. they absolutely killed. a monster sound, and soon after i bought 'eucalyptus.' 'burn pigs burn' is the first song on that album, and just now, listening to it again for the first time in years, i was impressed with how goddam great it is. the song: apart from the usual cop-hating that the '80s were good for, i'm struck by the line "fuck yeah i got piano wire." i seem to remember a movie in which piano wire strung across a roadway was used to knock a cop off his bike...vivid image.
