As the day is long as the
Damage done

Rise, get in line, get'em pumped up high
Get the hammers up high get in line to
Get fucked up
Get the hammers high
Calm and cool corrupt
As the day is long as the
Damage done
We won't give away anything we've won.

(Waylon whispers)
Is this punishment? Where did we go wrong?
Like a new conviction of a broken law
This is life in the balance, this is hate for a challenge
This is killing us in the desert dust

They love the way we let the water wash away
Gonna wake shit up gonna break shit up
Gonna tear this goddamned world apart

Don't doubt the hate that's inside of my heart
Gonna break humanity just in spite of me
Gaze into my eyes and you'll find
We're losing so much more

    General CommentAwesome fucking song. Fucking intense. A lot of possible interpretations. You could see oppressive governments or drugs or just pure brutality.

    General CommentThe lyrics in the CD booklet aren't the EXACT lyrics they sing. Jeff and Waylon supposedly did that to get around the censors.

    General Commentyep, the book says "funked up". for anyone interpreting this, would it help that the original title was going to be "Stoned"

    General CommentIts not because they wanted to get around the censors, they're just that into their music. I'd swear too, if the drums were beating in my head like that. This is a really driving beat. The guitar, bass, synth, the drums, all of it is a collective explosion of anger and frustration and stress. The album isn't parental advisory, because theres a certain number of times you can say a certain word before they slap the sticker on it. On average, you can only say "Fuck" twice, Shit 4 times, God damn about 8-9 times. Everything else is once or twice. Thats how their rules work. I mean, watch a PG movie, they say Shit in there, don't see no problem with that.
