And all the sailors who were junkies
All went sailing out to sea
And the white man sold quaaludes to the monkeys
And they all died high up in the tree

*spasms screaming cries*

And all the teachers who were flunkies
They all taught you and me
And the white man,
I'll be goddamned if they're still selling quaaludes to the monkeys
And they're all you and me dying high up in the tree

* drawn out spasms screaming cries*

    General Commentuh... To parter

    and i guess this song could be interpreted many diffrent ways.
    could be that the white man idk messed with the animals basiclly killed them off the same way we did ourselves. or monkeys could be like slang for someone black or something, idk sounds raciest but thats just another thought considering they use the word white man.

    General CommentThis song is about the decline of society. The sailors are gone, the poor and downtrodden are becoming hooked on drugs. Then, later, the teachers are no good and the "man" is still making things worse. Eventually we'll all end up dead because of all of this.
