"Eliminator Jr." as written by Kim Gordon, Lee M. Ranaldo, Steven Jay Shelley and Thurston Joseph Moore....
Tears cruise away, packed and then took a shit
The sky is ours, dark stains on his pants
Enough to make him blush around the bone
Take a walk in the park? Shit, yeah!

A poor boy, a rich boy
A poor rich boy coming right through me
Rich boy, poor boy
Poor rich boy coming right through me

    General CommentIt's about Robert Chambers - the "Preppie Killer" who murdered a girl in NYC Central Park in the 80s.

    General CommentI think this is Sonic Youth's way of saying "were still punks" after the conceptual artsiness of the previous track. Great song, though.

    General CommentNdmartinxyz is right - it's about Robert Chambers, the "preppy killer." Kim even introduced the song as such one time. Harrowing and intense way to end their best album.
