Yea, yea, yea

Cuts the numbness then I

Yea drives my brain
Yea twist of 'cain
Make me come alive
'Cause it's a

Yea twist of Cain
Yea drives my brain
Yea twist of Cain
Make me come alive

Said yea
I took it standing
Broke commandments
And he tumbled like a toy
Blood
Like a crimson highway
Spreading out
From his forehead to the ground

Twist of 'cain
Yea drives my brain
Yea twist of 'cain
Make me come alive
'Cause it's a

Yea twist of 'cain
Yea drives my brain
Yea twist of 'cain
Make me come alive
Wo-oh, yea

Wo-oh God above
Feel a twist of 'Cain
Inside a beating heart, well

Got a little twist of 'Cain
From the God below, yea

Know my father
He was born of light
Said yea
Can't hardly stand it
Cuts me down the middle
Then I, I come alive yea

Yea drives my brain
Yea twist of 'Cain
Make me come alive
'Cause it's a

Yea twist of 'Cain

Wo-oh, wo-oh
Feel a twist of 'Cain
Inside a beating heart
Wo-oh, wo-oh

    I cant believe all the people thinking this is about cocaine. Not hard to figure out though, the songs about committing murder, or the act of murder. Cain is referring to Cain and Abel and to Cain who was the first person to commit murder in the bible. Classic Glenn Danzig who was also a founding member of the Misfits and considered a founder of the "horror" subgenre of music.

    General CommentI believe this song is a reference to the Bible. Cain and Abel were Adam and Eve's first two sons. Cain was jealous of Abel, so he killed him. God was pretty pissed at Cain, so he banished him, and put a mark on his forehead so no one would kill him.

    General CommentYea, i see what you mean by that, but when it says 'cuts me down the middle' isn't that like chopping a line? I don't do coke, so i don't really know much about it, but that's what it sounds like.

    General CommentPossibly...I'd always thought about it in a biblical sense...I never heard of cocaine being called cain, but, maybe the song is a metaphor using both biblical stuff and drugs.

    General CommentYea, that's true too. Cain just being the last fragment of the word anyway. But since i also don't know much about the bible, i couldn't tell ya.

    General Commentwell it does make sense to take it in the drug sense... Danzig doesnt really write about drugs much... but he does write about evil and biblical stuff so i think freefallenangel was rite on target

    General CommentDamien and Raining Blood, you two are retarded.
    The lyrics are open to interpretation but you are correct about the lyrics being biblical.

    Danzig doesn’t care about how fans of his music interpret the lyrics that is why he leaves it open, do the research and read past interviews.

    As far as I can remember the most Danzig has really said about Twist of Cain is that man has both Cain and Abel in him, as in the choice to be good or evil.

    I never said that I was an expert so you can take what you want from it.
