"Day of the Jackalope" as written by and Neil Fallon Jean-paul Gaster....
Well, my senses are sharpened
I'm half in the bag
I got a Cheshire smile and
A five cent rag.

Day of the jackalope

Abandon all ye faithful
Abandon all ye hope
Abandon all ye faithful
It's the day of the jackalope

Well, I heard about your problems
With your old man
Well, he's a non-issue
As fast as I can

Day of the jackalope

Abandon all ye people
Abandon all ye hope
Abandon all ye people
It's the day of the jackalope

Well, the leaves blow in circles
In my footsteps
Like the mouth of a river
I have no regrets

Day of the jackalope

Abandon all ye people
Abandon all ye hope
Abandon all ye people
It's the day of the jackalope

    My InterpretationThe speaker exhibits some megalomania as a result being drunk and/or high, and identifies with a creature from American folklore who is spoken of in tall tales as being extremely dangerous to hunters. He intends to commit a murder, perhaps while the victim is out hunting, so heinous and inexplicable that it could be attributed to a creature of legend, and the date will go down in local mythology.

    General CommentI'm usually pretty good at figuring this sort of thing out, but this one's got me totally lost. Sounds to me like it's from the perspective of some kind of supernatural entity, though.
