"I Come In Peace" as written by and Bill Mosley Michael Hakopian....
(TV voice 1)
He's as tall as a redwood tree,
He weighs 30,000 tons,
And he has the thorns of a hedgehog.
(TV voice 2)
Those are petty details, carrus.
(voice 1)
I want you to understand his rather... special talents...
(TV voice 3)
First of all, he has the strength of 10 monsters.
With one blow he can destroy the Empire State Building
With another, the highest peaks of mount everest would fall.

[slow intro]

(newscaster)
This just in: we have unconfirmed reports that Tokyo is under attack...
By a 50-foot man with a... white face?...
A chicken bucket on his head, uh... carrying an enormous guitar...
According to this report, whenever he plays a note...
The sonic waves cause whole buildings to explode,...
Streets to buckle and split and vehicles to fly about like toys...

Chorus:
(different voice, probably buckethead)

I come in peace

X3

(newscaster)
THE DEFENSE COMMAND HAS ORDERED ALL CITIZENS TO EVACUATE IMMEDIATELY!!!...
People from sector 4 please report to the bus depot in sector 3...
Sector 5 proceed in an orderly fashion to sector 6...
Sector 1 & 2 board the bullet trains without delay...WAIT!...
We have visual contact... Look at the size of those shoes!!!...
Who is this giant? where did he come from? where is he going?...
What's he playing? what's he saying? RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!...

Chorus

[solo 2]

Chorus

(newscaster)
It seems that this gargantuan figure is only destroying chicken outlets...
The liberated chickens appear to be... FOLLOWING him...
A white wave of feathered friends... eh... isn't this the year of the rooster?...
And here come the children following close behind... huh...
They're all headed toward a giant fortified chicken coop on Mt. Fuji...

(possibly buckethead)
Ha-ha-ha-ha-hoh X4
[children cheering]
Chicken "bawking"

(newscaster's voice)

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!

[solo 3]

(Buckethead?)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I SCREWED UP!

(newscaster's voice)

ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-haaaaaah, wipeout!

    General CommentGood song. Buckethead is very skilled at adding quirkiness into his music without making it sound too silly or too boring. Good stuff.

    General CommentSince some fool has decided that all Buckethead songs are instrumentals, they posted the songs like that. The lyrics are:

    "He's as tall as a redwood tree, he weighs 30 thousand pounds, and has the horns of a hedgehog."

    "Those are petty details, [unknown name]. I want you to understand his, rather, 'special' talents."

    "First of all, he has the strength of ten monsters. With one blow he can destroy the Empire State Building, with another, the highest peaks of Mount Everest would fall."

    This just in, we have unconfirmed reports that Tokyo is under attack! By a … 50-foot man with a white face? A chicken bucket on his head? Uh, carrying an enormous guitar!

    According to this report, whenever he plays a note, the sonic waves cause whole buildings to explode, streets to buckle and split, and vehicles to fly about like toys!

    "I come in peace. I come in peace. I come in peace."

    The defense command has ordered all citizens to evacuate immediately! People from Sector 4, please report to the bus depot in Sector 3! Sector 5, proceed in an orderly fashion to Sector 6! Sector 1 and 2, board to bullet trains without delay. Wait!

    We have visual contact! Look at the size of those shoes! Who is this giant? Where did he come from? Where is he going? What’s he playing? What’s he saying? Run for your life!

    "I come in peace. I come in peace. I come in peace."

    "I come in peace. I come in peace. I come in peace."

    It seems like this gargantuan figure is only destroying chicken outlets. The liberated chickens seem to be … following him. A white wave of feathered friends, uh, isn’t this the year of the rooster? And here come the children following close behind, huh! They’re all headed towards the gigantic fortified chicken coop on Mount Fuji!

    [Chicken sounds and children cheering]

    [Laughing]

    [Ah! I screwed up!]

    Ah ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, wipeout!

    General Comment^^ As you said, Buckethead is brilliant at making music just the right amount of quirky. I love how he can seem to make some of the strangest statements seem absolutely serious. :D
