"DMV" as written by Les Claypool, Reid L. Iii Lalonde and Timothy W. Alexander....
I've been to hell. I spell it, I spell it DMV
Anyone that's been there knows precisely what I mean
Stood there and I've waited and choked back the urge to scream
And if I had my druthers I'd screw a chimpanzee-call it pointless

When I need relief I spell it THC
perhaps you may know vaguely what I mean
I sit back and smoke away huge chunks of memory
As I slowly inflict upon myself a full lobotomy-call it pointless

Barbecues, tea kettles, gobs of axle grease
There comes a time for every man to sail the seas of cheese
Now, life's a bowl of bagel dogs, but there are unpleasantries
Cold toilet seats, dentist chairs and trips to DMV-call it pointless

I've been to hell. I spell it, I spell it DMV
Anyone that's been there knows precisely what I mean
I've stood in line and waited near an hour and fifteen
And if I had my druthers I'd screw that chimpanzee-call it pointless

    General CommentI think its about how somebody is unable to wait a few minutes for something uncomfortable but willing to waste away hours and hours doing nothing

    General CommentDMV, of course, stands for the Department of Motor Vehicles which is infamous for long lines and endless waiting.

    General Commenthmm...shit that we hate in life. That's what this is about. You've got your parties and your friends and your fun...but you also have to put up with shit. POWER TAPPIDY TAP on the bass! And that end bass-strum solo blows me away everytime i hear it.

    General CommentPrimus uses way to many metaphors and symbolism in their lyrics, they are such cryptic puzzles. I cant begin to fathom this songs meaning. (sarcasm is a bitch) I love this song, CLAYPOOL FOR PRESIDENT!!!

    General CommentDon't we all hate the DMV? (Or as it's called where I'm from, MVA). I would definitely love to blaze up in the middle of the DMV, that would make it a much better experience. Too bad there are all those state troopers around at all hours.
