"Your Lucky Day In Hell" as written by Mark O. Everett and Mark Goldenberg....
Mama grapped onto the milkman's hand
And then she finally gave birth
Years go by still I don't know
Who shall inherit this earth
And no one will know my name until it's on a stone

This could be your lucky day in hell
Never know who it might be at your doorbell
This could be your lucky day in hell

Waking up with an ugly face
Winston Churchill in drag
Looking for a new maternal embrace
Another tired old gag
Am I just a walking bag of chewed up dust and bones

This could be your lucky day in hell
Never know who it might be at your doorbell
This could be your lucky day in hell

Father Theresa you can't make me into you
I never want to be like you
Why can't you see it's me
You know it's time to let me go

This could be your lucky day in hell
Never know who it might be at your doorbell
This could be your lucky day in hell

    General CommentWhy are there no comments on this song? Oh my God, it's such a good song. It's one of my favorite songs, and when I first heard it I felt as if I'd heard it before, like in a good movie or something.
    But it's trying to be optimistic in a world that, well, sucks at times..."this could be your lucky day in hell."

    "Waking up with an ugly face, Winston Churchill in drag" - that cheered me up.
    The whole album (Beautiful Freak) went along with my mood when I was going through some rough times.

    When I hear those two sentences in the song, it makes me breathless. The way how he sings it is just... amazing :)
    When he mentioned 'Father Theresa' really made me laugh the first time I heard it.

    General Commentdon't know about scream, but I first heard it and found out about The Eels from a movie that didn't do so well in the box office it was called "Dead man on Campus"...the song is featured towards the end of the movie I think just before the credits roll

    General CommentI don't know if E ever had a prog-rock phase growing up or it's just an odd coincidence, but Genesis had a song called "Supper's Ready" in the 70's that also mentioned "Winston Churchill dressed in drag".

    General CommentTo me, at least, it's about trying to be optimistic about a situation, despite knowing that whatever it is that you're in, it can't possibly go over well.

    General CommentI think the song is saying that sometimes hell seems like a better situation that you are living at the time.

    General CommentWhen this song was getting played on the radio in like, '96 or so, before I bought the CD, I thought he was saying "this could be your lucky day - inhale."
