My orchards growing lightning.
Your haircut turns to worms.
My cocaine turns blue and stops breathing.
Your collarbones snap like a snare drum hit.
Your children start speaking hieroglyphics
Your moon's deep purple bruise
My T.v. plays a tape loop
Of humans evolving into skyscrapers
The whales are drowning all I hear's a sickening grotesque tone
The sky is changing colors no eye has ever known.
So grab your pistol, grab every bullet that you own.
Your face is changing shapes that no bone has ever known.

CHORUS
Everybody, get the fuck out.
Everything is so fucked up now.
Mass exodus! Black streets bleached black.
Everybody, run like hell.
Everything is fucked to fuck now.
Mass exodus! freeways jam packed.

Gulls with childrens faces.
Drop exclamation points.
There's flood water at your ceiling.
You're on a raft made of family portraits.
And all my teeth, they fall out.
Your fingers turn to tongues
My pregnant wife just gave birth
To a mushroom cloud shaped killer bee swarm.
The whales are drowning all I hear's a sickening grotesque tone
The sky is changing colors no eye has ever known.
So grab your pistol, grab every bullet that you own.
Your face is changing shapes that no bone has ever known.

[chorus]

I think the earth has stopped spinning.
It's been twilight for fourteen days.
I hear that old familiar sound.
Of someone playing the national anthem..

[chorus]

    Song MeaningIts about cocaine. Or some sort of drug. I'm pretty sure its cocaine.


    Great song, also. I actually like Jaguar Love better than The Blood Brothers now.

    General Commentdespite the appearance of normality (signified by the playing of the national anthem...meant to convey safety), hes saying prepare yourself for the shit. "grab every bullet that you own" because eventually the problems that are being overlooked will have to be faced, and the longer we put it off the more directly they will have to be taken on.
    ...on a side note, i really like what this band is doing.
