It only tickles now,
I used to kick and shout
Now I just think of the climb.
Footprints gone,
you never love someone-
Only what they leave behind

And I won't forget you,
And I won't forget you,
And I won't forget you,
And I won't---

when I'm in Hell!,

when I'm in Hell!

when I'm in: Hell!!, Hell!!

I'm taking all those things,
The things that no one brings;
The packing of those memories
And when I come up the Mountain of Needles
And I swim in a Lake of Blood!!
NO! NO, NO!!!
And I won't forget you ,And I won't forget you, And I won't forget you!!

I won't forget you

    General CommentThe Mountain of Needles and the Lake of Blood are from a japanese story The Spider's Thread by Akutagawa Ryūnosuke. About a thief that's been drowning in the lake of blood at the bottom of hell which is only lit by the mountain of needles for so long that he "could only twitch like a dying frog." He is remembered (I won't forget you) by Lord Shakyamuni who attempts to save him from hell but fails.

    ofcourse, it could also be about absolutely nothing.

    General CommentClassic hidden FNM gem. Great to hear them going all metal like that. I can see why it didn't make any albums though.

    General CommentHippy Jam Song, The World is Yours and I Won't Forget You are all Jim Martin era. Hippie Jam Song is 1991, and the other two are during Angel Dust recording.

    As for reading into anything that Patton ever has said in an interview, don't he just fucks people around with his meanings. The video clips are used to tell another story from the lyrics too. So once again you get mixed messages.

    General Commentthanks for the info donners. btw how u know all that... i was pretty sure hippy jam was angel dust era cuz it sounds similar musically to be agressive, but i thought this one kinda sounded something off kinf for a day,.. similar to gentle art...no keys

    General CommentThis is from the KFAD recordings because that isn't Jim Martin on guitars. It's Trey Spruance. Jim Martin's style is completely different. This definitely wasn't from the Angel Dust recordings because all of that was done with a Mesa Mark III amp and this song sounds nothing like that.
