Hey, Yojo, volcano
Hey ba-by, betray me
Hey ba-by, you don't know
But, Yojo, he owns me
Hey, Yojo, don't let go
Hey, Yojo, volcano
Hey, Yojo, all day-oh
Hey, Yojo, volcano
Hey ba-by, harpoon me
Hey ba-by, maroon me
Hey, Yojo, you kill me
Hey ba-by, just save me

I could not escape the beast life has provided me
My only enemy's crawling beside me
(So long, so long) how did this happen to me
(move in, move on)
It seems so empty...

I can not be so wrong with any elegance
So I think I'd rather fix my own incompetence
(fuck off, fuck off)
I'm on a rampage
(so long, so long)
I'm out of my cage

Hey, Yojo, volcano
Hey ba-by betray me
Hey ba-by you don't know
But, Yojo, he owns me
Hey, Yojo, don't let go
Hey, Yojo, volcano
Hey, Yojo, all day-oh
Hey, Yojo, volcano
Hey, ba-by, harpoon me
Hey, ba-by, maroon me
Hey, Yojo, you kill me
Hey, ba-by, just save me

I could not contain the plane of your enlightenment
All of these prophets here are full of frightenment
So long, so long, to all these skeletons
Fuck off, fuck off, ??? twenty kids
I could not see the light that is in front of me
Worship only tomahawk, you are my destiny
So long, so long, I'm on a rampage
(falling, move on)
I feel so empty

I could not escape the beast life has provided me
My only enemy's crawling beside me
So long, so long, how did this happen to me
?move in move on?
It seems so empty

    General CommentInstead of "my only energies" I think it's something like "my only enemies are alive/live/living inside of me."

    General CommentThere's a mistake in these lyrics. It goes "Yojo" not "Yo Joe." In the book Moby Dick, Queequeg has a small wooden idol he calles Yojo.

    General CommentI think after the background "so long, so long" it's "till we move on" in the background. Maybe.

    Either way, I love this song.
