"Creep On Creepin' On" as written by and Taylor Kirk....
From your chair, my narrative tonight
As your dickless cousin, brother, father, pet, friend, husband or wife
A lavender scent
A bone-orchard of hearts seems to surround you as you stare
Each gift horse straight in the mouth
Stare my arrow down
I was invited, I was called out
To watch you frolic and dance

Oh I buried my head in my hands
I buried my heart there in the sand
I was cocked, blocked, cured, encharmed
I was ferociously put upon until it was clear
I should not keep on
I'll just creep on creepin' on
Yes, I will, I'll not keep on
I'll just creep on creepin' on

Fell at this station to levitate your bed
And move her hair onto my chest
Exposing her neck and I tear through
Or to put it into my arms
And my stomach dropped
As you shifted me off to stop
The ectoplasm coiled like a hovering halo of smoke
And our beloved invention
Is conjured each night in your throat

Oh I buried my head in my hands
I buried my heart there in the sand
I was cocked, blocked, cured, encharmed
I was ferociously put upon until it was clear
I should not keep on
I'll just creep on creepin' on
Yes, I will, I'll not keep on
I'll just creep on creepin' on
Or do I try one more time?
No, I'll not keep on
I'll just creep on creepin' on

    General CommentThese guys are great. The whole gritty blues thing is pulled off well and the way many of their songs meander through a psychedelic realm, is reminiscent of 60's music which drifted away from the hard set norm of the time and took people to places in their minds which the last few decades had closed off. True avant garde artists! a little hard to interpret though. Creep on creepin on especially, is so far out of touch with any sensible meaning as to almost lose its spark! Almost!! I think this song was written in an abstract manne,, one which leaves the interpretation and meaning up to the listener. We can try to decipher what meaning it has for the writer, but it may be hard. This song was written in a very detached state of mind. The artist uses his words to explain a Subconscious.sort of reverie or experience, and the connotations and symbols are of a very personal level. This song is meant to be interpreted in an egoless state as induced by large amounts of hallucinogens.
    The narrator speaks of family and support for some pain caused him. (presumably by a woman). He attaches many negative feelings to this support system, probably due to its inability to provide any real solace.for his suffering. He then talks about existing rather than living. "Creeping on". There is relevance to heroin use and maybe weed. He seems to deal with his pain this way. Finally, his pain goes on, without comfort, without solace. he creeps on creepin on.
    This is the way I see the song!

    General CommentI'm not completely sure, but all the lyrics add up to this being about The Exorcist, or at least demonic possession in general: the levitating bed, the ectoplasm, the profanity . . .
