"Huey Newton" as written by and Anne Erin Clark....
Feelings, flashcards
Fake knife, real ketchup
Cardboard, cutthroats
Cowboys of information

Pleasure-dot-loathing-dot-Huey-dot-Newton
It was a lonely, lonely winter

Fuck-less, pawn sharks
Toothless but got a big bark
Live children, blind psychics
Turned online assassins

So Hale-Bopp, Hail Mary
Hail Hagia Sophia
Oh, it was a lonely, lonely winter

Entombed in the shrine
Of zeros and ones, you know
You know
Oh, we fatherless features, you motherless creatures
You know

Oh, perpetual lying, always terribly frightening, you know
You know
Oh, you got the pop in the hiss
In the city of misfits, you know

Safe, safe, and safest
Faith for the faithless
Oh, dim, dim and dimmer
Sucker for sinners

I'm entombed in the shrine
Of zeros and ones, you know
You know
Oh, we fatherless features, you motherless creatures
You know

Oh, perpetual lying, always terribly frightening, you know
You know
You got the pop in the hiss
In the city of misfits

Oh, safe, safe, and safest
Faith for the faithless

    General Comment"A shrine of zeros and ones" is the remnants of your life on the internet after you die. No idea what the rest means, but I love this song.

    "Fake knife real ketchup" has to be one of the best lyrics ever, and this on an album that starts "Oh what an ordinary day/Take out the garbage, masturbate". You'd think she couldn't top that, but she did!

    My InterpretationSeems to me it's a remarkably eloquent song about the remarkably ineloquent trolls of the internet. "Fuckless porn sharks", hahahahaha.

    General CommentI agree with the interpretation that the song is about NEET internet trolls, and I have something to add about this line in particular:

    "Oh, you got the pop in the hiss
    In the city of misfits, you know"

    I believe the actual lyric is "pop AND the hiss," and it would make sense if she's referring to hedgehog behavior. When hedgehogs feel threatened or just plain pissed off, they hiss and exhibit "popping" behavior, which is what it's called when they curl up and jerk/jump with their spines all up.

    The lyric makes me think of the dumb little fights you see in internet comment threads, especially on sites like 4chan which are made up of people competing to be the biggest/toughest asshole. Having the "pop and the hiss" in the "city of misfits" is being the toughest and nastiest loser- but still a loser.
