"Dopes To Infinity" as written by and David Wyndorf....
I can see by the hole in your head
That you want to be friends
You're the right one baby

I can tell by the moon in your eyes
That you're loved by the tribe
You're the right one baby

[Chorus]
Hook you up to the coil of the one
Who makes time with the sun
And who keeps up pumping
See your mind on the hood of my car
And forever is power
As the world keeps dumping down

We are the only ones

Put the earth
In the crook of your arm now
Tease it and charm it
And watch life spray everywhere

I have something more cosmic in mind
It's a warpage of time
And it's bliss for everyone

[Chorus]

We are the only ones, oh yeah
Yeah, we are the only ones

(What can I say?)
(What can I say?)
(What can I say?)
(What can I say?)

We are all here but my friend
All dead and spaced but all so beautiful
We burn that mountain down
And always pump for peace when possible
We bite ourselves and bite our dogs
And stretch the flesh unmovable
We are all here but my friends
Alive and spaced but all so beautiful
We are all here but my friend
All dead and spaced but all so beautiful
We burn that mountain down
And always pump for peace when possible
We bite ourselves and bite our dogs
And stretch the flesh unmovable
We are all here but my friends
Alive and spaced but all so beautiful

    General Commentsorry to burst some bubbles but here's what dave said on his website: "Thing is, I havn't done drugs or even drank in years and years. Hell, I stopped pot and drugs in the early 80s and drinking in 96! And I would hardly call my Benzo binge a creative period. Quite the contrary.

    What I'm trying to say is that if there's any change in future music, good or bad, it sure as hell aint cause of drugs. There isn't one MM song that was written stoned. Not one MM album that was recorded stoned. I know it sounds boring but it's true. "

    but monster magnet still rules and i can't figure out how to express the meaning in half the shit in their songs. all i know is that listening to them connects in a level deeper than words, shattering perspective and lining up planets

    General CommentYou have never got high if you have never done it listening to Monster Magnet.

    Obviously another one of Dave Wyndorfs drug hallucinations.

    General CommentI think it's inspired by Clive Barker's Nightbreed and Hellraiser stories, specifically the crossover between the two,Jihad. "Tribes of the Moon" and the "one who keeps time with the sun" would be about the 'Breed, and the ones who "stretch the flesh unmovable" would refer to the Cenobites and their extreem peircings.

    Only confirmation I have is Dave Wyndorf is a huge comic fan who puts numerous references in his songs.

    General CommentThe referance to "the one who makes time with the sun", to me is more about being able to touch God, as it were, while tripped out on acid, the next line supports this, when he sings about him keeping us pumping, assuming that it is God who keeps us living.

    The line about stretching the "flesh unmovable", to me, is about pushing the envelope, in terms of creativity.

    General CommentIt's the line 'I can tell by the moon in your eyes that you're loved by the tribes...' that gets me thinking. Another name for Nightbreed is "Tribes of the Moon".
    'Hook you up to the coil of the one, who makes time with the sun, and who keeps us pumping' could be about the 'Breeds god, Baphomet, who saved the various tribes and brought them together as Nightbreed.
    Not trying to argue, just promoting discussion.

    General CommentNah, I love discussing stuff like this.

    The name of the song is kind of a clue, to me. Dopes to infinity, suggests that this song is about a drug trip and the kind of random ideas you have when you are high, and how he feels connected to God and in tune with the universe.
