The spirit climbs my spine to the brain
Following the railroad tracks down again
I needed space with soul maybe we can die there
maybe we can Stop, I'm already dead
Stop, I'm already dead

My, my my mother she said
Heaven's on one shoulder, but baby Hell is on the other
Tied neatly in a box beneath the bed it was the bones of my father

Oh baby we can Stop (nanaaooo) I'm already dead
Stop (nanaaooo) I'm already dead
I am, already dead

    General CommentThey said on their website that it it about the Charles Manson murders... but it's still pretty vague.

    General CommentI saw them in concert two nights ago, Dax is hilarious, he always adjusts the speakers etc., he stopped a song twice to adjust shit. He should change the name of his band to "Dax and some other people that can play the other instruments in my songs"

    General CommentStrictly reading it without any reference (having unsuccessfully tried to find the Manson Murders statement on deadboyandtheelephantmen.com), I would've interpreted some of Dax's childhood indoctrination into his mother's Jehova's Witnessing and separation from his more liberal father -- images of his mother enforcing stereotypical stifling religious views, denouncing such things as the father's liberalism, and threatening the child himself with judgement spring to mind -- which would thoroughly explain a desire to take time in your own soul, possibly die there when a late-nite movie convinces you that your inherited faith is riddled with hypocracy.

    General CommentNo, he definitely said it's about the Tate murders. That's what either Tate or Folgers said as they were laying there getting hacked up.
