Backwash districts sprung from Ra's bright hips
Reduced to silkscreen hand job new car ego trips
And it's just endless combinations of the same old shit
Sloshing back and forth across some continents
All that talking it ain't got no use when it's just mal digestion that's been haunting you
Along with reflux opinions from your ulcer moods
You're just a litany of horrors like the evening news
But off somewhere in a New York flat, benzedrine derailed rants of immeasurable frenetic praise
That cauterize before they save
All the truth now in how you're lying there
Shoulder bladed nightmare rug pulled from your feet
All the truth now in how you're lying there in
Angelheaded elsewhere so markedly meek
Slapped like a has been by syntactic gods
Whom which then help you find your glasses but not your lower jaw
And you don't want to look surprised but you're in constant ahhh!
Ain't no fig leaf big enough to hide your dicktion flaws now
Teeming pools of alphabetic shame that spit out
Infinitely indolent verbs across your page
Who dig their claws instantly into some nouns legs
If once your manuscript just limped now it's become quite lame
But off somewhere in a New York flat, they don't deal with things like that
Just immeasurable frenetic praise that cauterizes as it saves
All the truth now in how you're lying there
Shoulder bladed nightmare rug pulled from your feet
All the truth now in how you're lying there in
Angelheaded elsewhere so markedly meek
All the truth now in how you're lying there
Shoulder bladed nightmare rug pulled from your feet
All the truth now in how you're lying there in
Angelheaded elsewhere for the past six weeks

    General Commenteven though the track itself says "Cal," for unknown reasons, on the back of the album cover the track is listed as "Carl Solomon Blues."

    General Commenti think the writer of this band is a reincarnation of that crazy guy from the nineteen twenties.. I would even go on to say the album is supposed to be understood in the context of the 1920s.

    General Commenti seriously think a lot of this song is about him criticizing some girl who's probably a rich, stuck-up ho for lack of a better word. the "silkscreen hand job new car ego trips" part pretty much describes some girl giving some seemingly rich gentleman a handjob.

    then this part,

    All the truth now in how you're lying there
    Shoulder bladed nightmare rug pulled from your feet
    All the truth now in how you're lying there in
    Angelheaded elsewhere so markedly meek

    so she puts on a front by acting like she's intelligent or decent or moral, but he's saying "the truth" or who she really is when she's lying with the "rug pulled from her feet" and i mean when the rug gets pulled from your feet you end up on your back, so he's saying you're on your back a lot, skank, and that's the truth about you as a person. "Angelheaded elsewhere so markedly meek" means when she's not slutting around she's pretending to be a perfect little angel, and the markedly meek part i think is just him sarcastically mocking the front she's putting on.

    then

    Slapped like a has been by syntactic gods
    Whom which then help you find your glasses but not your lower jaw
    And you don't want to look surprised but you're in constant ahhh!
    Ain't no fig leaf big enough to hide your dicktion flaws now

    so she gets slapped like some ho in a weird porno or something (probably somewhat frequently) by a bunch of different guys who are "syntactic gods" which means they basically have hooking up with random sluts down to an easy step-by-step process. And then the next part is talking about her giving a bj, when you look surprised you have your mouth open, and she's in constant "awe" which is also a mouth open type of emotion, and to say that it's constant means it happens quite a lot

    anyway there's a lot more to this song obviously, i just dont feel like trying to analyze any more of it
