Blood and whisky spread over the canvas
Frida Kahlo can't deny the justice
Your paper work has got me throwing ice cubes
Sink your teeth to Polaroid distraction !

Got a feeling you have got a cigerratte'a
Found some cocaine - offer you a cigeratte-a
Mouth-to-mouth, I know you got a ciggeratte'a !
Bloody mary's drowning in a yuppie culture...

Take off your shades !
Take off your shades !
Take off your shades !
Take off your shades !

Stripping down the cable stems of the monster squad (squad!)

Fight the feeling, so write about it
County christos got us nicknamed for failure
Fuck the meaning, so write about it

No shadow !
No shadow !
No shadow !
No shadow !

Red and black, I splash it on the canvas baby !
Red and black, I'm carving like an eighties saviour !
Red and black, I splash it on the canvas baby !

Srip the wire...
Cable stems of...
The monster squad...

    General CommentI asked Tim what the "Your paper work has got me throwing ice cubes" bit was about and he responded:

    "Think it was when we signed our first record deal... I started throwing ice cubes at Al [KK manager] cos I was drunk... And angry.... Some things never change! Ha!"

    But yeah, the song's about cocaine and vampires and some insane murder fantasy. I think. & ghostbusters.
