Across your face i see what you are
You wanna kill the sun and blot out the stars.

I know you your nothing, your so small
You're fuckin nothing-nothing at all.
The Sun blots out (optional "the sun comes up")
It reminds me of you,
the slit wrists of the sky
bleeding into the blue.
We twist beneath forever,
but do you know what they've done?
Ants in the afterbirth,
we're slugs under the sun.

I could not wake the dead man dreaming, yeah,
acid party murder at the late show.
OH YEAH
Mutate me and breed yourselves a savior now.
I could not kill the dead man screaming, yeah
----------------------------
eat my dead cock.
OH YEAH (repeated twice)
----------------------------
I have fallen deep in love with the sky,
fragments of a sunbeam glaring off the kitchen knife.
The leaves will fall as everything must follow.
Kill your idol, come on jump into the void,
Eat my cold shit.

Everybody whispers where birds fall dead.
I smell the yellow sickness churning inside your head,
Wiping flecks of foam twisting with rabies,
Bloody we run through these fields of dead daisies.

How can i ever make you know what you've done.
Ants in the afterbirth, slugs under the sun.
I have fallen in love with the sky,
fragments of a sunbeam glaring off the kitchen knife.

    General CommentThey key to Acid Bath's lyrics is that they function as one big, long story. The lyrics from songs connect to other songs, allude to other themes.



    "Across your face
    I see what you are
    You wanna kill the sun
    Blot out the stars"
    This part is referanced in the song "The beautiful Downgrade", the last song (hidden) on their second CD, Paegen Terrorism Tactics.
    Basically this part lays out what we are ("This is a song about you" -Dax) and how humanity is killing everything. Also, it relates to the basic human urge to destroy everything.





    "I know you you're nothing
    You're so small
    You're fucking nothing
    Nothing at all"
    Basically stating that we are, in fact, insignificant in all that we do, which is the motivation for aforementiong sun-killing.




    "The sun burns on
    It reminds me of you"
    No matter how hard we try, we can't destroy everything like our primal instincts command us to. The sun burns on.



    "The slit wrists of the sky
    Bleeding into the blue"
    I'm not so sure on this part, but it sounds very cool.



    "We twist beneath forever
    So you know what you've done
    Ants in the afterbirth
    Slugs under the sun"
    Again bringing up the ingsignificance of humanity, comparing us to ants and slugs. "We twist benieth forever" is a referance to how we, as a race, have survived for a long time and will continue.

    "I could not wake the dead man dreaming .. yeah..
    Acid party murder at the late show .. Oh yeah!.."
    This part would make sense as a referance to Dax's father, as has been stated before me, or even to Chtulu (being dead and dreaming), but to me it makes referance to, again, humanity in general. Humans being the "dead man dreaming", and unable to wake from our society-based coma. The second line about the acid parties and murders and whatnot, could be a referance to the self-destruction of humans.

    "Mutate me and breed yourselves a savior
    I could not Kill the dead man screaming"

    Again, not sure here, but the theory with Dax's father makes sense here. Perhaps the story overlaps at this point, and his father is an analogy to humanity in general.

    "Eat my dead cock! oh yeah..
    Eat my dead cock! oh yeah.."
    "Dead cock", strange as it sounds, may be a referance to the fact that we reproduce and bring life into a world where they may as well be dead because they are basically imprisoned into a society they did not create nor approve of.

    "I have fallen deep in love with the sky
    Fragments of the sunbeam
    glaring on the kitchen knife"
    My favorite line of this song. Falling in love with the sky, longing for freedom from the world we created, and a feeling of jealousy towards the sky, because it is free, and we are not, thus explainging the first four lines.

    "Leaves will fall as everything must follow
    Kill your idol come on jump into the void"
    Trying to stop our celebrity-based lifes and go into where we have never been (the void), a world where we think, live, and choose for ourselves, not based on what some spoiled, rich, douchebag does.


    "Eat my cold shit!"
    Just funny.

    "Everybody whispers where birds fall dead
    I smell the yellow sickness churning inside your head"
    Clueless on this part.

    "Wiping flecks of foam twisted with rabies
    Bloody we run through fields of dead dasies"
    Again, no idea.


    "How can i ever
    Make you know what you've done
    Ants in the after birth
    Slugs under the sun"
    Humanity can never understand how its imprisoned itself into society, or its insignificance.


    "I have fallen in love with the sky
    Fragments of our sunbeam
    Glaring on the kitchen knife"
    Repeating an earlier part of this song, just worded ever so slightly different (removing "deep").



    Thats what I see in this song. Then again, you might see something different. And yes, I do smoke a lot of pot.

    General CommentSince nobody has any thoughts on this for 2 and a half years, I'll go ahead and state anything I want. Alright, this song is about a struggle based on what someone tried to force him to become. Most likely his parents, who tried to get him to become something beneficial to themselves (mutate me and breed yourselves a saviour). Apparently he wanted to work in aerospace (correct me if I'm wrong.), however no one would support that. Refusing any admittance into such field. It kills his chance to be one with the sky. I'm also sensing there's a history of parental brutality involved. It all leads up to a point where they attack eachother. He cannot kill his father, due to empathy. (I could not kill the dead man screaming, eat my dead cock.) He runs off and never becomes what he hopes to become.

    General Commentsomething tells me this has more to do with drugs and killing when on drugs. interesting perspective though.

    General CommentDax says "this song is about you" on the Acid Bath dvd given that, id have to say this song is about people in general, how fucked up society is, and everything bad happening from what i can tell with the different scenerios in the song. i dont know, mabey im stupid and way off. the lyrics above arent right though. here are the right ones.


    Across your face
    I see what you are
    You wanna kill the sun
    Blot out the stars

    I know you you're nothing
    You're so small
    You're fucking nothing
    Nothing at all

    The sun burns on
    It reminds me of you
    The slit wrists of the sky
    Bleeding into the blue

    We twist beneath forever
    So you know what you've done
    Ants in the afterbirth
    Slugs under the sun

    I could not wake the dead man dreaming .. yeah..
    Acid party murder at the late show .. Oh yeah!..

    Mutate me and breed yourselves a savior
    I could not Kill the dead man screaming

    Eat my dead cock! oh yeah..
    Eat my dead cock! oh yeah..

    I have fallen deep in love with the sky
    Fragments of the sunbeam
    glaring on the kitchen knife

    Leaves will fall as everything must follow
    Kill your idol come on jump into the void
    Eat my cold shit!

    Everybody whispers where birds fall dead
    I smell the yellow sickness churning inside your head

    Wiping flecks of foam twisted with rabies
    Bloody we run through fields of dead dasies

    How can i ever
    Make you know what you've done
    Ants in the after birth
    Slugs under the sun

    I have fallen in love with the sky
    Fragments of our sunbeam
    Glaring on the kitchen knife

    General Commentwell as i was reading the inside cover for this song, the original lyrics are right according to that. but if you listen to it closely they are pretty far off and the lyrics i posted are correct.

    General CommentDavidSpoon seems most correct to me ...altho i dont think he actualy wanted to work in aerospace...the falling in love with the sky and all that talk is him in love with his dreams..to me this song seems to be about how as we age we lose our dreams and our passions...he calls his father a dead man..couldnt wake him up..blah blah..cuz he lost his dreams and doesnt understand the son..

    Whenever he says this is for you he may be saying that in retrospective to his father.
