Them scumbags
Them faghags
Short eyes
Dope dealers
Faith healers
I'll be there
Far away
I'm floating above it all
Be there
I'll be there far away
I'll be there for you
I'll prove the holy road leads to
The snake charmers
The shoe hangers
I'll show you Sunday strollers too
The gangbangers
Spirit channelers
I wanna be the one for you
I'll be the one
I bought a gun
I wanna be the crowning jewel
To bad they won't believe me, son
I'll be there floating above it all
I'll be there flaming
Waiting for you

    My InterpretationThis whole "I'll be waiting, son" quasi-theme is touched upon again in one of their new songs, "I.O.U.".

    General CommentI swear that when I saw them Patton shrieked the "I bought a gun" part...I have lots of Tomahawk bootlegs and he doesn't seem to do it in any of the others.

    I think it's about the obsessive feeling that you're the only person for someone and that you'll just wait for them to realize it as they wade through all the other shit until it takes them to figure it out.

    General CommentI was just thinking about this song the other day and I thought that perhaps it's about a father that tries to show his son the whole world, wants him to know it and overprotect him, stating that even after his death "he'll be there for him floating above it all".

    General CommentThere is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this song is written from the perspective of a De Niro in Taxi Driver/John Hinckley (sp?) type character - a wacko who will do just about anything to get the attention of the girl he's obsessed about...even get a gun and shoot someone (famous?)

    General Commentagreed with the Taxi Driver-type situation. However I think it's about a killer spying on his future victims.

    General CommentI think 'I'll prove the Holy Roller's true' is actually -

    "I'll prove the holy road leads to"

    General CommentThe best song that he is associated with outside of Angel Dust I agree with the taxi driver scenario, cause Patton is really big into his movies - I saw this live and it is so sinister and eerie! This song makes the album

    General CommentSome of his best lyrics are character driven - RV (white trash guy) Crack Hitler (shark) Everythings Ruined (Broker) Quote Unquote (Travolta) Midlife Crisis (Madonna) Point and Click (Travis Bickle)

    General CommentI think he's speaking from the perspective of, perhaps Satan himself, who is trying to become the omnipotent entity or God if that's what you like to call it.
