"Salton" as written by and John Aka Johne Battle/lary Battle....
White faces open to the greasy rains
As your god pisses all over your face
Salty water fills the reservoir
While in alkaline deposits in the shallows
The tilapia float dead dead dead
Those fish rise up and cook in the imperial valley sun
But nothing's wrong
I got a lakefront lot
And my parents were buried where the waterline was before
Not anymore

I saw the water recess and begin to stagnate
Then the dust clouds came in a choking spray
They wouldn't drive us out
We were here to stay
And I've lived to see the day
When this lake is nothing more than a puddle of industrial waste
With mutant seabirds killing each other for half a fish
'cause I made a wish when I was young
That all the waterskiers would die
and the saline count would multiply
That this shitty lake would go bone dry
And the thought of it all made me smile
And I waited for quite awhile for the bastards to go home and leave us alone
I can wait, I can wait forever

White faces open to the greasy rains
As your god pisses all over your white white face
