"Lips In The Hills" as written by and Roeser/bloom/meltzer....
I am gripped, by what I cannot tell
Have I slipped or have I merely fell
I've been tricked, my senses telling lies
I've been (stiffened?) by serpent's soundless cries

Up in the hills, an apparition
Filling me with superstition
A fiery night, the night that I saw,
the night that I saw,
the night that I saw,

Lips in the hills, lips in the hills
Lips, Lips, Lips Lips in the hills

I'm so lonely, stabbed by beating claws
I've been tripped, I'm crawling on all fours
I've been stripped the insulation's gone
Wish I slept to waken in the morn

Up in the sky, beyond the chasm
My eyes behold, a rare phantasm
The godless night, the night that I saw (repeat as above)

I am gripped, by what I cannot tell
Have I slipped or have I merely fell
I've been tricked, my senses telling lies
I've been (stiffened?) by serpent's soundless cries

Up in the hills, an apparition
Filling me with superstition
The godless night, the night that I saw (repeat as above 4 times)

    General CommentThe song "Lips In The Hills" may refer to an incident in July of 1947 known as "The Roswell Incident". Supposedly, a UFO crashed in the hills in or near Roswell, New Mexico, although this was denied/covered-up by the U.S. Air Force (originally saying it was a weather balloon).

    Many people in the area at the time supposedly saw/heard strange things going on right before the crash. The USAF recently released a report on the incident, revealing that the "UFO" was part of a secret government program, known as Project Mogul, to spy on the Soviet Union's nuclear weapon development.

    High-altitude balloons were equipped with special sensors and radar reflectors to detect atomic testing, but the project was canceled, with the balloons being allowed to fall back to earth. It is likely that flying saucer enthusiasts will remain skeptical of the USAF's report.

    While this interpretation may be valid, Eric Bloom once told some BOC fans that the original concept of "Lips In The Hills" was about breast feeding.

    General CommentIt's about some ass-kickin' guitar riffs!

    Also sex. Hills can describe pretty much any lady parts. Lips in the hills.
