"The Horn Bearer" as written by and Harold/mercer Arlen....
A vast light
Tied the wind down
Double-ride, make it allright
My brain is to follow my brain wheel

I'll need to last
I'm trapped in a hole
Built it all and i hope you don't know
And i'm off, but a maggot's all you need

I'm gonna die
This tired old boy
Pity for both you and I
In my mind, a disciple in this hell

(scream) x3

A vast light
I hate your pity(pain?)
I'm strong while you are weak
Took this god, and now your will

I gotta break
The trick is done
I've got a cross and now you're none
Gods fall, and i must pay

I have a bend
And you will die
Leave a soul where it got in my eye
It's best to fall to get down before you kneel

    General CommentMaybe one of the more obvious Melvins songs, if you like interpreting and take it at face value. Best of The Maggot in my opinion.
