"19 Witches" as written by and David Wyndorf....
You're floating there you're handing me, a snake inside a jar,
It's just to cool, I do believe, you're what you say you are,
How many days was I in that psychotic submarine
I stumbled out, I took my turn, and now I've made your scene

And I am cross, a sacrifice, and born in Vietnam,
You'll take me home in your machine and tell me about your plan

Come-on on in
Come-on on in
And put your hands on me
Come-on on in
Come-on on in
My love will set your free

I said whoa, ho, ho, I'm in love again
Whoa, ho, ho, you're so strange
I said whoa, ho, ho, I'm in love again
Whoa, ho, ho, you're so strange...so very strange

They'll hang me here, they'll make me pay, if I do what they don't like
So cast your sin quick and bite my lip, and screw my brain up tight

Come-on on in
Come-on on in
And put your claws in me
Come-on on in
Come-on on in
In tune of my machine

I said whoa, ho, ho, I'm in love again
Whoa, ho, ho, you're so strange, so very strange
Strange little baby, strange little baby

    General CommentFirst of all, this my favorite Monster Magnet song.

    As always, it's tough to make sense of the lyrics Wyndorf writes, but I think a lot of the things in this song aren't to be taken literally, but figuratively. I think it's about getting involved with a girl who has a wild edge to her, but keeps to herself and doesn't seem to be interested so much in him, but just sex and drugs that maybe he provides. The line "I'm in love again" hints that he is deeply intrigued by the girl, but likes it that way. He doesn't want a steady girl, and since she isn't, that's what attracts him to her. After the drugs wear off, he may not feel the same. I can't imagine a "psychotic submarine" being a reference to anything but drugs. He's stumbled out, and re-entered with her. I picture the music video to be a guy and girl in a car, flying down the highway, with music blaring, not interested in making worthless conversation, just enjoying the moment.

    General CommentI think he is in love with the drugs. He can't control them, and thereby can't control himself, and he likes it that way

    General CommentI think "tune up my mo-chine" is talking about the feeling he gets when he's high. Same thing with "screw my brain up tight." "In love again" could mean "addiction" or a relapse.
