A terrible silence shook a crowd,
To giving the blame to me, no oh,
Said, "I’m giving my best bluff, I’m giving my best bluff, a push in the eye, to peer around it."

But I’m a snake in the grass girl.
You better watch out, I might strike.
In my hard-on, I'm running as fast as I can,
And here we go to save the world.
If my hard-on is broken then,
I could just run faster.
But I’m a bastard.

I see myself at the bottom of a barrel.
She looked, looked in there and couldn’t see me.
Said "No, look down! The tiny squiggle-like worm, that sits in the disgusting whiz that fills up the bottle!"

In my hard-on, I'm running as fast as I can,
And here we go to save the world.

And I’m a bastard!
I’m a bastard, no oh!
In my hard-on, I'm running as fast as I can,
And here we go to save the world.
If my hard-on is broken then,
I could just run faster.
But I’m a bastard.

    General CommentI'm not just saying this because I don't understand the use of "hard-on" in these contexts, but honestly I've been listening, and I hear "and I'm gonna hold on, I'm running as fast as I can" and "my hide-out is broken." Both of these seem to make more lyrical sense, and we have to remember that Claudio has weird pronunciation in many cases. Could be wrong though, idk...

    General Commentthat could be, vladimir, but you also have to take into account how shabutie's other lyrics are equally as perverted as the line "in my hard-on... etc.".

    i think both of our presumptions make complete sense and either could fit lyrically and vocally. good ear spotting your guess, man
