“Hey man heard you’re a real clean shot”
Yeah when I’ve got a couple drinks in me
And I’ve got a couple drinks in me
“Hey man I heard you get the job done”
Yeah if I’ve got a couple drinks in me I’m known to practice apathy
when you see me stagger
know I’m being antagonized by what you can’t hear
and just moving with the (current) current state of self ?emshment?
where I don’t involve my self in
human affairs
just leave me an address of where I live I’ll make it slow and painful


I DON’T ASK FOR MUCH
A FEW BILL AND A HUMAN TOUCH
TAKE THE EDGE OFF

I told you that I’d bring my head I told you I was better off dead
have you heard the kind of shit that I said
I’m madmadman no I’m not a madman I told you if you slipped me a drink
I told you not to speak when I’m thinking
I told you I was having a hard time sleeping
I’m a sadsadman yeah I’m a real sad man

There’s empty barstools to each of my sides
and empty glasses so who the fuck vulgar slang 1 have sexual intercourse with talking and who’s covering the tab?
Just a lonely man with a death wish and a head full of crossed wires making a deal with himself he keeps talking he keeps nodding

A
SICK
SON
OF
A
BITCH
WILL ALWAYS END

THIS

    General CommentHere's the correct lyrics


    "Hey man, heard you're a real clean shot!"
    (When I've got a couple drinks in me, and I've got a couple drinks in me!)
    "Hey man, heard you get the job done!"
    (When I've got a couple drinks in me, I'm known to practice apathy!)

    When you see me stagger
    Know I'm being antagonized by what you can't hear
    And just moving with the current

    Current state of self embalment
    Where I don't involve myself in human affairs
    Just leave me an address on where I live
    I'll make it slow and painful

    I don't ask for much
    (They will lead us out of town, straight out of town,
    we can dodge the freight cars, just passerbys in the morning)
    A few bills, and the occasional, occasional, occasional human touch
    (I won't move if you won't move, and I won't move if you won't move,
    trade cigarettes for stories, you and I the Lords of the Rails,
    straight out of town and that is why we follow the pennies lay for we have stories and smokes)
    Drink to take the edge off

    I told you that I'd bring you my head
    I told you I was better off dead
    Have you heard the kind of shit that I've said?
    Cause I'm a mad, mad man, no, I'm not a mad man.
    I told you if you slipped me a drink...
    I told you not to speak when I'm thinking
    I told you I was having a hard time sleeping
    I'm a sad, sad man, yeah I'm a real sad man!

    There's empty bar stools
    (To each of my sides)
    And empty glasses
    (So who the fuck's talking?)
    And who's covering the tab?
    Just a lonely man with a deathwish
    (And a head full of crossed wires)
    Making a deal with himself
    (He keeps talking)
    He keeps nodding

    A SICK SON OF A BITCH
    WILL ALWAYS END LIKE THIS

    General Commenti think in the line "and just moving with the (current) current state of self ?emshment? " the last word is embellishment

    General Commentit's "self embalmment." as in preserving one's own dead body.

    General Commentthere are a few errors in there, but that's expected with the way the lyrics are written out.

    "I don't ask for much/
    (they will lead us out of town, straight out of town/
    we can dodge the freight cars, just passerbys in the morning)/
    a few bills and the occasional, occasional, occasional human touch/
    (but I won't move if you won't move, and I won't move if you won't move/
    trading cigarettes for stories/
    you and i the lords of the rails/
    straight out of town and that is why we follow/
    let the pennies lay for we have stories and smokes)/
    and a drink to take the edge off."

    one more thing:
    "vulgar slang 1 have sexual intercourse with" isn't actually sung in the song. I think it's some sort of joke to give the definition of the word "fuck."

    General Commenthaha the previous song on this CD "Lycanthropy" is about turning into a were-wolf.....haha it seems like this song is about a Were-Wolf Going out for some drinks and he needs somone to give him directions to his house for the morning time when he wakes up :P.....i know this probably isnt right.....but its a funny idea.

    General Commentfear before spelled it incorrectly (bacchanalia would be the correct way). but bacchanalia were originally festivals thrown by the roman god of wine, bacchus--basically parties to get drunk. nowadays, bacchanlia refers to any sort of drunken revelry.

    General CommentI think this song is about a hitman typish person. No emotion, hence the apathy part. They are also crazy (empty bar stools to each of my sides,and empty glasses, so who the fuck? part) It seems like the person just moves from place to place. That's what I got.

    General CommentI think it's about one of those old men that has "a head full of crossed wires" and people will give him drinks and get him started because he's a sight to see when he gets pushed over the edge.
