Black Cactus Choir in Neon Savannah. We travel in packs in our hot air balloons. Black Cactus Choir in Neon Savannah. Assassins with tusks and glasses sneak into our black cactus baskets. Black Cactus Choir in Neon Savannah. Who stuck a knife in my balloon? Now I’m marooned in a bazaar in Khartoum. He’s a killer, a killer, a Black Cactus Killer! Now my face is grotesquely deflated. And all my typewriters are clicking heavy metal lyrics. Everything’s turned to shit there’s mosquitoes as big as moons hovering around my crawling corpse. Dirt in my mouth, barbed wire lingerie flying on all fours.. Where’s that man with the megaphone? I want to see the man with the megaphone right now, I wanna see his face! Black Cactus Choir in Neon Savannah. All the crowds throwing stones at my black cactus bones. Black Cactus Choir in Neon Savannah. We leave our dead ,we abandon our stranded. Black Cactus Choir in Neon Savannah. We’ve left another singer to be eaten alive. He’s a killer, a killer, a Black Cactus Killer!

    General Commentdoes this song have anything to do with the book lord of the flies?

    the man with the megaphone, the choir, the parachute man that gets stuck there and dies because his parachute fails?

    General Comment.. is it just me or is this song ridiculously similar to "Black Cactus Choir" by Soiled Doves? I know Johnny Whitney is/was involved with both bands.. but why write such a similar song?

    General Commentabout this song and black cactus choir.. i read this in an interview a little while ago

    "This may be a poorly researched question, but what’s the significance of the Black Cactus? We had the “Black Cactus Choir” and now there’s the “Black Cactus Killers.”

    "It’s kind of a long story. When the Blood Brothers signed to ARTISTdirect, I knew that I was going to do something like this some day. And you could put in that you can do certain bands within the contract, because we were all in other bands at the time—Cody was in a band called Waxwing, and et cetera. I was in the band Soiled Doves at the time, so I just put Black Cactus Choir in as the band that I could do. Originally I was going to call it that, but V2 was cool enough to let me do whatever I wanted as far as a name. But I wrote that song when I was still planning to call the band “Black Cactus Choir.”
