"Here Come The Bastards" as written by Les Claypool, Reid L. Iii Lalonde and Timothy W. Alexander....
Here they come
Here come the bastards
I heard it from a confidant
Who heard it form a confidant

They're definitely on their way
There's one with this idea
Something about a hammer head shark
Nosehairs and flatus

Best keep your distance because
Here they come here come the bastards
Bury your head deep in the sand
Anonymity is a virtue in this day and age

Amazing hand dexterity
Flagrant misuse of security
Better run, run, run, run, run
Run run run run, here they come.

    General CommentI'm not sure but I think that this is like in battle or something and the bastards are representing the enemy in the way.

    I don't know but this song is awesome,

    General CommentThis song is about politicians. It especially works right now during the Bush administration with "Flagrant misuse of security."
    The politicians are the bastards.

    General CommentThe Bastards are basically, everyone who played on the songs of the same name. Members of Primus and Limbomaniacs, plus Matt Winegar, Todd Huth, and Mike Bordin( Faith No More).

    General CommentI agree with tapandslap. since this is the second song on their first major label album, its sort of letting the listener know that these guys (Primus) are a bunch of bastards that are going to change the way you listen to music. and the "flagrant misuse of security" is not about politians, its about how the band with not bother with being safe with their music.

    or something like that

    General Commentim almost positive this isnt the meaning of the song but everytime I listen to this i think its written in someone elses point of view, looking at Les and his fellow bandmates as they trip on shrooms, and the absurdity of what they are saying for example...
    " There's one with this idea
    Something about a
    hammer head shark
    Nosehairs and flatus
    Best keep your distance because

    Here they come
    here come the bastards"

    just figured id put in my two cents.

    General CommentErrr... I differ a lot about this.
    Well, maybe they can refer about themselves, but I think that they refer about fear and cowardice....
    When it saids:
    " I heard it from a confident -
    Who heard it form a confidant
    They're definitely on their way"
    I think this is about rumor... About people who heard a little about something but he is not sure about it, but "better run"...
    Why challenge the troubles If you can aboid it?
    And also is about conformity... You can be in a confortable place than to fight what can harm you.
    If something new can appear to you, its better to avoid it ( for someones who cannot understand it).

    Well, something like that (I know... My english sucks)
