"Battery Acid" as written by and Josh/castillo Homme....
Make you into dark
Straight into your heart
Sorry all you are
I don't really care
Well, I know you are...

Robots, robots
Brainwashed babies, blood from a leech
Spoken rabies
Spastic, plastic, battery acid
Yank on the leash
Draggin' you backwards
Oh, my closed eyes
Never see it comin'

There's nothing you can say
You can't wish me away
Every masochist gets a turn
The sadistic twist you'll never learn
Battery acid, battery acid

Battery acid in my veins
Unidentified remains
"Yes" button broke to automatic
Irrational dosage of furious static erasing what you are
You were

(Jealous)
To feel the way you do
(To mention)
A lie, then call it true
(Feel for)
Nothing except for yourself and nobody else
Hanging over the edge

There's nothing you can say
You can't wish me away
Every masochist gets a turn
The sadistic twist you'll never learn
In battery acid, battery acid, hey

    General CommentVaseline has a good interpretation.

    I like the 3rd verse:
    Battery Acid in my viens?
    Unidentified remains
    The YES button broke to automatic
    Irrational doseage of furious static erasing what
    You are
    We are

    Taking this drug leaves you in a state where you don't know who you are anymore (unidentified remains).

    You know longer choose to take the drug. Instead the drug takes you (The YES button broke to automatic).

    General CommentNot surprisingly, another drug song. Yet this one seems almost like a anti-drug song.

    Josh Homme is the spectator here; realising (probably out of experience) how the lives of drug-abusers look like; only looking forward to their next dose, not caring for the rest of the world and forgetting what it is to be really alive. They remain to be robots, brainwashed babies.
    It leaves them in a world of shit, and at the moment they realise were they are, it’s already to late. Homme doesn’t care, they didn’t want see it (closed eyes never see it coming) and he knows it’s to late to have pity for them.
    It’s the sadistic twist they never learn; everyone can get his high, you’re nothing special, you’re all robots waiting for the next dose. Running on this battery will only leave you with acid burns…

    Make you into dark,
    Straight into your heart.
    Sorry is all you are,
    I don't really care, I know you are.
    Robots, robots,
    Brainwashed babies,
    Blood from a leech,
    Spoken rabies,
    Spastic, plastic, battery acid,
    Yank on the leash ,
    Draggin you backwards,
    Oh my,
    Closed eyes, never see it comin.

    There is no thing you can say,
    You can't wish me away,
    Every masochist, gets a turn,
    The sadistic twist, you'll never learn,
    In battery acid.

    Battery acid in my veins - unidentified remains,
    The yes button broke to automatic,
    Irrational doseage of furious static erasing what
    You are,We are.

    Jealous,
    To feel the way you do,
    To mention,
    A lie, then call it true,
    Feel for,
    Nothing except for yourself,
    And nobody else,
    Hanging over the edge.

    There is no thing you can say,
    You can't wish me away
    Every masochist, gets a turn,
    The sadistic twist, you'll never learn,
    In battery acid

    And nobody else,
    I'M Hanging over the edge!

    There is no thing you can say,

    General CommentWhile I believe this is probably the worst song on Era Vulgaris (don't get me wrong, the CD's great!) it does get catchy and tolerable after a few listens. That's what I think is the hardest part about enjoying the music on the album. You have to get used to it. I don't think everyone truly understands that. Listen to it, full-length, two or three times and then see if you like it.

    General CommentThis song does my head in!
    I try so hard to follow the beat but when "Robots! Robots!" and "Battery acid in my veins" comes in I just get lost. Damn clever song to pull that off.
    Y'feel me?
