"Sleestak Lightning" as written by and Neil Fallon Dan Maines....
I send pictures through the mail
Well documented and very detailed
To politicians and big celebrities,
But none of them are believing in me
And I await their response
Some send none, most send cops
But man it's a dire situation
And I will risk the public humiliation

Sleestak lightning on my trail
It's a dire situation, they are on my trail

West Virginia has its Moth Man,
Pan handlers' got their Skunk Ape.
But I have a tazer and night vision goggles,
Costco rolls of black duct tape.
It's got red eyes, it's got razor claws,
It's got green skin, no it ain't a meth-head.
And after studying its behavior, objectively and critically,
I believe I have a reliable method.

    General CommentI think germophobe has it, completely insane and hilarious paranoia. Some don't reply to his insane letters, most send cops. Neil is a genius, it may not make a particular point, or tell all that much of a story, but damn can he write some killer lines. 'But I have a tazer and night vision goggles, Costco rolls of black duct tape'

    General CommentSong name is a play on words: Smokestack Lightning is a classic blues song by Howlin Wolf ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… ) about a cheating woman. According to the wiki article the song name was inspired by observing trains at night billowing smoke and sparks.

    Sleestak are the lizard guys from Land of the Lost ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… )

    So the song protagonist feels he is being chased by Sleestaks and has made preparations such as purchasing bulk duct tape and notifying the proper authorities. But no one believes him...

    Got to love Neil's writing

    General CommentI absolutely love that he rhymed meth-head with method.

    General CommentI corrected the lyrics, the last part was wrong.
    He had put in a part to much and he forgot the Chupacabra's part. :)
