"See You In Hell" as written by and David Wyndorf....
A little room on 7th street is getting cold
And secrets sing like mescaline
They don't get old
I saw a pattern on a blanket just the other day
It looked just like the pillow you threw away

You were like a zombie
When you told me what you did that day
And I drove out to the meadow lands
To throw our baby away
What time and snow couldn't bury
Years of forgotten guilt
That little body's calling, rising up
From under a Jersey landfill

I just woke up the other night
And now I know what to do
I just woke up the other night girl
And now I know what to do

I guess I'll see you in hell

A creature's waitin' for a battle in the ancient swamp
Your pissing on the pyramids
Ain't gonna move things along
So pack your scars and your makeup
And give your money to the poor
'cause you've been riding a twenty gauged ticket
Into reality's door

The TV's gone and you've been half an hour paid
And your punk rock band still sucks anyway
I was talking to Jesus through a hole in the floor
He said our time is up, we can't stay anymore
No more

A little room on 7th street is getting cold
And secrets sing like mescaline
They don't get old
I saw a pattern on a blanket just the other day
It looked just like the pillow you threw away

I just woke up the other night
And now I know what to do
I just woke up the other night girl
And now I know what to do

I guess I'll see you in hell

    General CommentI think it's about a poor couple with a child. Wife causes kids death, Dad buries kid in landfill, kid comes back for revenge.

    General CommentI'll take you one step further, Suicida42. He's so wrought with guilt that he kills himself, maybe a murder/suicide thing with the mother.

    General CommentIf you read my post in Space Lord, you could follow this one....

    They hand an child, and it died. they buried the child. a "New Jersey Landfill" is just a hole in the ground somewhere that you throw stuff away in.

    "So pack your scars and your make-up
    And give your money to the poor
    'Cause you'll been riding a twenty gauge ticket in through reality's door"

    He's telling her that 'either we split up and never see eachother till we die and make it to hell, or i'll kill us right now with this shot gun'

    yea....

    do i make any sense at all?

    General Commentagree with GameCharmer. Couple breaks up, is trying to remain friend but their "child" (the bitterness created when they broke up) is just slowly building up.

    Finally it gets to the point where the only way to beat the bitterness is to just not be talk to each other anymore. To just openly hate each other. "See You In Hell."

    General CommentDave wrote the lyrics in response to some weirdo he was sat next to in a bus that was blabbering on about how his wife smothered their baby and he had to bury it in the Meadowlands in Jersey.

    General CommentTo sum up what everybody's said, I think this song is about a poor, down-and-out couple living in a ramshackle studio apartment in the big city (possibly New York City). It's being told from the wife's point of view (assuming they're married - they may not be). Her husband's a failed punk rocker with a serious drug addiction, so they have almost no money. Neither of them is well educated. The husband went so far as to sacrifice their child so that they could survive. And so, finally, the wife decides it's time for them to split up (with the baby sacrifice being the final straw). It's like an ode to stereotypical white trash, if you will.

    General Commentthis aint my idea unfortunatly but when dave went to las vagas for his 21 days of song writing to create the power trip album he stayed in a hotel or whatever just outside of the city and would get the bus into the city,one day he met an old hippie who told him his girlfriend has killed their baby and he had to bury it in a landfill.
