"Pork Soda" as written by Les Claypool, Reid L. Iii Lalonde and Timothy W. Alexander....
Now listen up you know ya come home from working that nine to five and
Lay yourself down on burgundy couch, you know, it never really was
Burgundy. It was red, and you painted with the goddamn sprinkler and
Now you have bits and pieces of burgundy stuck to your but every time
You get off of it. You never tell your family, you never tell your
Family because, you know, ol' Junior, he's got no brains, and what can
You do? What can you do? (And old Junior, you know, got a little crazy
With that P.B.J. that one day ??)

Grab yourself a can of pork soda
You'll be feeling just fine
Ain't nothin' quite like sittin' 'round the house
Swillin' down them Cans of swine

Ha ha ha! Yes, Dad's an idiot alright!

Well, alright, I'm really starting to worry about you. You had to have
That two-car garage with the large driveway so you could park that
Goddamn boat in it. If it wasn't for the boat (blah blah blah)


I like Kansas wine

Well, maybe it's something simpler, like your team lost or your
Girlfriend used to be a guy, you know, I don't know. I mean (blah blah blah)

    General CommentHe says in an interview (ram.org/music/primus/articles/…) that it's about how people are obssessed with diet and how pork soda is full of cholestoral and calories - very unhealthy. From the lyrics of the album's other songs and this one's you could say that it's about how life is unhealthy (drugs, lifestyle, bullying + morality, exploiting identity, crime, minor unpleasantries, death/suicide etc.) but is fun for it! Things are only good because you have bad things to contrast them to.

    General CommentBeer's full of cholesterol and stuff too, but it's fun! Whilst a very dangerous drug, it's fine in moderation (unlike most other drugs), so I guess maybe the metaphor is, like dieting - don't worry about things in life too much, just do things in moderation - you can have fun without risking death (or becoming fat)!

    General CommentWell, I met Les about 4 years ago, at Club Infinity in Buffalo. I went up to talk to him(My dad also wanted a picture with him) about his basses(cause I'm in a Primus cover band sorta thing) and I also asked him what this song was about cause I couldn't understand half of it. He said that this song was about just random things some people have to deal with in their life and about how people drink to solve it. Pork Soda refers to what he said that they called it where he grew up, which I forgo the name of.

    General CommentWow! i'm just amazed someone managed to figure out what all that rambling was, i've listened many times and tried to figure it out...

    ..but fail everytime.

    pretty funny that such a chaotic sounding, non-sensical song became the title track for an album though
