Sink the eight ball
Buy the lady a drink
And nobody knows my name
Bodies float up
From the bottom of the river
Like bubbles in fine champagne

He's the one, no doubt
Walking on the tight rope
He's the one, no doubt

Got a gash on my head
And a grin on my face
And a shadow called danger
Hidin' in the sheets
And on the streets
In the hearts of every stranger

Here he comes, look out
They're dependant on you
Here he comes, look out

Sweat on the brow
And a tap on the phone
And lives are on the line
Pick up the briefcase
On a high speed chase
Breathin' by the roll of the dice

Reachin' up to the top
Teach the world a lesson
Reachin' up to the top

"In regards to
the usage of the drug...
It modified my personality
To the extent that I was
Highly irritable."
"I was like a crack Hitler."

Keep up the fight
And in the wink of an eye
Never give up

Ooh...ahh...
Look out

    General CommentA quote from Billy Gould, bassist from Faith No More.
    Billy: "'Crack Hitler' is about this drug baron who takes Crack and compares himself with Hitler, because he commands enough depended people. So he thinks he's the biggest one...you know what's funny about all this? His skin is not even white! He's coloured and he thinks he's Hitler? We all laughed a lot about him, so we had to dedicate him a song."

    General CommentSpeaking of Primus, the vocal effect used on the verses sounds almost exactly like Claypool's on "Tommy the Cat."

    General CommentFrom what I heard the Patton/Keidis feud actually dates way back to 1989; there was some interview where Kiedis talked about seeing the "Epic" video and thinking that Patton's vocal style and spastic dancing were a ripoff of his own.

    General CommentPretty self-explanatory song especially for FNM, but it's about a a drug king who gets high off his own drugs and power.

    General CommentI heard part of it was about a black coke dealer that called himself hitler, and M.P. thought it was hillarious that a black guy would call himself hitler.
