"Space Lord" as written by and David Wyndorf....
I've been stuffed in your pocket for the last hundred days
When I don't get my bath I take it out on the slaves
So grease up your baby for the ball on the hill
And polish them rockets now, and swallow those pills
And sing whoa, space-lord mother mother

There's a car in the field now in a column of flame
With two doors to choose but only one bears your name
You've been drinking my blood well I've been licking your wounds
I'll shave off the pitch now in the scope of your tune
You'll sing whoa space-lord mother mother

I left my throne a million miles away
I drink from your tit
I sing your blues every day
Now give me the strength
To split the world in two yeah
I ate all the rest and now I've gotta eat you

Well I sing...

Built in my nightmares and using my name
You're stroking my cortex and you know I'm insane
I'm squeezed out in hump drive and drowning in love
Encompass them all to a position above
And sing whoa space-lord mother mother

I left my throne a million miles away
I drink from your tit
I sing your blues every day
Now give me the strength
To split the world in two yeah
I ate all the rest and now I've gotta eat you

Well I sing whoa space-lord mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa...

I lost my soul when I fell to earth
My planets called me to the void of my birth
The time has come for me to kill this game
Now open wide and say my name

Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother
Whoa space-lord mother mother

    General CommentI've read some really great theories. All of them could be viable. However, I like to think of one specific being when this song is playing. Considering the mythos surrounding this creature, the lyrics match almost perfectly. This song is about Cthulhu. Cthulhu is a super-giant alien god that fell to Earth with his brothers. The mythos goes on to state that Cthulhu and his brothers made humans into their slaves. Eventually, the humans revolted and locked Cthulhu in a giant vault in the ancient city of Ry'leh. A natural disaster sank the ancient city into the ocean, so now Great Cthulhu, in his ancient tomb in Ry'leh, waits... dreaming. According to prophecy, Cthulhu and his brothers (AKA The Great Old Ones) will rise with a certain alignment of the stars to once again rule the Earth. They will eat all humans, including their followers, The Cthulhu Cult. The cult will be saved for last and will be eaten as part of a ritual that will send them to Cthulhu's planet where they will be greeted with a paradise where all feelings of pleasure and pain are intensified beyond that of our mortal imaginations. For more information on the Cthulhu Mythos, read the stories by H.P. Lovecraft. They're insanely delightful. The fear he strikes into the readers' minds when describing the Great Beast is unrivaled by any other horror writer.

    General CommentIt's about Galactus. 'I ate all the rest and now I gotta eat you.'
    A lot of Dave Wyndorf's lyrics are about comics

    General CommentI grew up on this stuff. There music is a sonic orgasm.

    ...I have no idea what this song means. Thinking about a MM song too much is bad for your health, most likely.

    Song MeaningBack when this song was still in heavy rotation on the radio, I was driving in my car and one single line caught my ear: My planets call me to the void of my birth. I had heard the song many times before but never paid any attention to the lyrics or care what it meant. But in that moment, when I heard that one line, I realized: this song is about a guy wanting to have sex with his own mother. The entire song is a mixing of imagery of sex and motherhood with a vague science-fiction narrative. But that one line clinches it: My planets (his balls) call me to (make him lust for) the void of my birth (his mother's vagina). Space Lord Motherfucker!

    General CommentElaborating on what a few people have already mentioned - the song - like many of monster magnet's lyrics - are referencing comics specifically, Marvel's Galactus.

    For those that don't know, galactus is a massive (like the size of the sun massive) cosmic being that "eats" entire planets for his meals. In the marvel universe galactus often tries to devour the resource-rich planet of earth but somehow or another it's never quite happened (i think- in the main universe at least).
    So this song sorta seems like Galactus dreaming about how awesome it will be when he finally consumes the planet of earth. Full of sexual innuendo and more blatant clues as in the chorus:
    "now give me the strength to split the wold in two
    i ate all the rest and now i've gotta eat you."
    pretty much the whole chorus actually. and the song title.
    Of course that doesn't mean it's ONLY about Galactus, but it seems to be the main inspiration...

    General CommentI love this shit!

    As I see it, it's either about the devil, or it's describing one of Dave Wyndorf's drug induced Hallucinations. Either way, it's amazing.

    General CommentI can never tell what Monster Magnet's lyrics mean since they are so weird, but who cares? They rock!

    General CommentMost of Monster Magnets songs are about stuff that Dave Wyndorf has imagined while he was whacked out on acid, I think...
