come on down to where them tracks cross high street
you gonna watch the whole world go insane

see the lighters hit the rocks in the bushes
like the stars are comin down like rain

here she comes
just a skin and bones skeleton
she's food for the crack cocaine

she got a baby
livin right outside the city
man she don't even remember his name

well his name is Adolf Hitler Albert Einstein Jesse James

all hail
all hail
to the greatest of sales
everything in sight's got to be sold
all hail
all hail
it's to work or to jail
man they're closin them doors on the world

laugh if you want to
really is kinda funny
cause the world is a car
and you're the crash test dummy

herd stampedin now
fences gone
television is always on
and it says
"save the children, but drop the bomb"
replace the word right now
with the word wrong
hey there's a big sale on tuesday
get it before it's gone
get a picture with the four horsemen
for a nominal sum
now that they got everything
they'd like to sell you some

all hail
all hail
to the greatest of sales
cause everything in sight's got to be sold
all hail
all hail
cause it's to work or to jail
man they're closin' them doors on the world

take this pill now,
and put it on your tongue
keep you actin'
just like everyone
keeps you from feelin'
good bad ugly crazy dumb
it ain't a drug god-dammit
I'd give it to my only son
well no one's gonna get arrested
no one's havin' any fun
doctors orders "ya feel yer heart beatin?
go ahead and take ya one"
now yer dumber than a singin' saw
playin Uncomfortably Numb
it's a thorazine work party
with free flouride bubble gum
man, you wander like a zombie
out into the midday sun

all hail
all hail
to the greatest of sales
everything you've got's got to be sold
all hail
all hail
cause it's to work or to jail
man they're closin' them doors
yea they're closin' them doors
yea they're closin' them doors on the world

    Song MeaningThe loss of individuality and free thought through consumerism, is how I interpret this. More broadly, the loss of values and morals in the modern world - how the 'higher powers' so to speak wish to make us all the same and think the same, need the same. 'Ya feel yer heart beatin? go ahead and take ya one'.

    It's a very deep song...

    General CommentI believe the missing word is "uncomfortably" numb

    Well this song is a great opener to a great CD (Do Wrong Right). In fact I bought this album soley by it's album art. Somehow it cought my eye enough to buy it with out even knowing what genre it was. When I popped it in my radio I was upset because it sounded real folky almost bluegrassy. Then the lyrics kicked in and caught my attention enough to listen on, I think it was the line

    "here she comes
    just a skin and bones skeleton
    she's food for the crack cocaine"

    I absolutely loved the entire album. A great buy!
    Enough with the blabber though, this song I thought was about our need to consume, but i get thrown off by the last verse. Oviously he is talking about perscription meds and the personality which is lost by taking them. IDK

    My OpinionThis song is hilarious social commentary. Hard to boil it down. I like the line- "Now that they got everything they'd like to sell you some". Once again this is about the Money Masters (See my comment on "Poison Trees") and how they manipulate things for their own gain, "cause everything in sight's got to be sold". This is an apocalyptic vision with a comical tone. "The world is a car and you're the crash test dummy" "really is kinda funny". It's about the herd mentality and the insanity of the modern world and how things are going to hell in a hand-basket (but don't take it too seriously), just stay "uncomfortably numb" by taking the pills they keep telling you to take on TV. That way you'll be easier for them to manage. The Owners of America want obedient workers, as George Carlin said. Just go to work and shop and don't think about what's going on.

    General CommentPersonally i think the album do wrong right is all about his life. So all hail is about his mom and her being never there and a crack addict becasue his father was the guy in car wreck so he knock her up left and crashed and died. And the rest of the album is about is strugles with a pill and alcoholism (grace fully facedown) and also becoming a drifter but always coming back to the same place (for good again) and tgey also sing about the bible meaning he must have gone to church to try to get sober. Thats my take on the whole album its a story about someone each song is connected
