"Black Albino Bones" as written by and Falco Abraham....
Can't sleep thinking about it

Rubbing stones together until the magic comes out,
Embracing the purity, the purity of obscurity,
Try to capture the name as it spins in your mind,
Follow it with our eyes,
The dizzy epiphany discovered an artifact of my own,
It's the little things that get us through life,

Squishing flesh together until the magic comes out,
Until we both ejaculate ride the wave
As a little dies, the orgasmic of the fantastic,
We well up, and then we explode!
It's the little things that get us through life,

I need a little escape

Burning plants together until the magic comes out,
Take it in the inhalate, inhalate what escalates,
Hold the vapor deep down inside the toxic fumes,
Initiate the levitate,
We slowly start to drift off,
It's the little things that get us through life

    General Comment I think the first verse is about records. Vinyl, you know? Some lines, not so much, but the "purity of obscurity" and the line about "try to capture the name as it spins" or whatever, it all makes me think of records and record players.
    And I know a few of the guys in this band are obsessed with record collecting. Haha.

    General CommentBefore introducing the song on "Coke Sucks, Drink Pepsi": "This song goes out to anyone who collects records."

    General CommentWhat an awesome song. It seems to be about the little pleasures in life. The second verse is about sex and the last is about smoking weed. I'm not sure what the first is about though.

    General CommentBlack albinos are hunted by other africans for their purported magical properties. Which, of course, is bogus. The singer is straight edge, so I guess the lyrics are about chasing "fake highs".

    Compare the song to David Comes To Life, which could be interpreted as a story about a man who uses drugs as a shortcut to a higher conscience.

    General CommentEhhh, I disagree.

    The first verse could be interpreted to be about record collecting, even by Fucked Up's own admission, but it is actually about man's inventive nature or problem solving skills (science).

    "Rubbing stones together" is how we made fire and got out of the dark ages- using our imagination. "Try to capture the name as it spins in your mind" could reference a spinning record, but more likely tries to describe the abstract idea of thought. It is a continuation of the Hidden World concept from their first album. An imagine in one's mind crossing through the hidden world into symbolic speech- giving something a name.

    I will agree that record players were created using human thinking so it does make sense, but indirectly.
