I've been a sick, licked for a seven
Tiny and red
Hail to the address of your mother in bed
Cause you're sittin' on a gold mine
Shootin' up the whole time
Cleanin' up the refuse from your
Last hit and coke lines
I've been pullin' thread
Doin' all kinds of evil
Know ya hate me baby
But don't break the needle

Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey, oh oh
Ya make me laugh, and
Ya make me crow
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey, oh oh
Ya make me laugh, and
Ya make me crow
I've been pulling thread
Doin' all kinds of evil
Know ya hate me baby
But don't break the needle

Now seven times two equals fourteen
It's time to get down, yeah
Ya know what I mean?
And I've been pullin' friends
Outta friends that I used to have
I've been pullin' thread
Doin' all kinds of evil
Know ya hate me baby
But don't break the needle, lady

Mozeltov, a rollin' ball
That ran right over him
Shame men to death
Men livin' off all their friends
My right hand, my left hand
They're both no good
It's a black lung like the young
Who's dying while they could
I've been pullin' thread
Doin' all kinds of evil
Know ya hate me baby
But don't break the needle, lady

Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey, oh oh
Ya make me laugh, and
Ya make me crow
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey, oh oh
Ya make me laugh, and
Ya make me crow
I've been pulling thread
Doin' all kinds of evil
Know ya hate me baby
But don't break the needle

Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey, oh oh
Ya make me laugh, and
Ya make me crow
Devil out in the blizzard
I knew he wouldn't kiss her
I just wanna know
If the girl had a sister
I've been pulling thread
Doin' all kinds of evil
Know ya hate me baby
But don't break the needle lady

    Lyric CorrectionI bet you sick lick forcep and you’re tiny in red.
    Elevate your tricep you’re a martyr in bed.
    Sitting on a gold mine, shooting up the old time.
    Cleaning up the refuse of your plaid shirt and coke lines.
    Now I’ve been pulling thread doing all kinds of evil.
    I know you hate me baby but don’t break the needle lady.

    Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee haw haw,
    You made laugh baby, you made me crawl.
    Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee haw haw,
    You made laugh baby, you made me crawl.
    I’ve been pulling thread doing all kinds of evil.
    I know you hate me baby but don’t break the needle lady.

    Now seven time two equals fourteen,
    this time is a dime. Do you know what I mean.
    And I been building friends out of friends that I used to have.
    I’ve been pulling thread, doing all kinds of evil.
    I know you hate me baby but don’t break the needle lady.

    Marshall saw a rolling ball, it ran right over him.
    It’s a shame to have the dead naming off all their friends.
    My right hand my left hand they’re both no good.
    It’s black lung like the young, who were dying while they could.
    I’ve been pulling thread doing all kinds of evil.
    I know you hate me baby, but don’t break the needle lady.

    Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee haw haw,
    You made laugh baby, you made me crawl.
    Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee haw haw,
    You made laugh baby, you made me crawl.
    I’ve been pulling thread doing all kinds of evil.
    I know you hate me baby but don’t break the needle lady.

    Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee haw haw,
    You made laugh baby, you made me crawl.
    The devil had a blister so I knew he had kissed her.
    And I just wanted to know if the girl had a sister.
    I been pulling thread, doing all kinds of evil
    I know you hate me baby but don’t break the needle lady.

    My InterpretationI couldn't find anything to support this, but I get the impression that this song is about Heroine.

    He mentions a "sick forcep" in the first line. The forcep being a common area to insert the needle. I'm assuming the tricep reference in the second line is also about a part of the process of "shooting up" - which is mentioned soon after.

    I also think "pulling thread" is an awesome name for shooting heroine.
