"Nausea" as written by and Exene Cervenka John Doe....
today you're gonna be so sick so sick
you'll prop your forehead on the sink
say oh christ oh jesus christ my head's gonna crack like a bank

tonight you'll fall asleep in clothes-so late like a candy bar wrapped up for lunch that's all you get to taste
poverty and spit
poverty and spit

nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to sleep

today you're gonna be so sick so sick
you'll prop your forehead on the sink
say oh christ oh jesus christ my head's gonna crack like a bank

tonight you'll fall asleep in clothes-so late like a candy bar wrapped up for lunch that's all you get to taste
poverty and spit
spit and spit

nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to sleep

you're talking out of harmony
you can't remember what you said
cut it out you feel retarded take the sissors saw the head

you're talking out of harmony
you can't remember what you said
cut it out you feel retarded take the sissors saw the head

nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to sleep

    General CommentUntil I looked at the booklet I was hearing it as "vomit and spit", which actually still kind of makes sense. Anyway, the meaning is pretty direct; it's a really vivid description of having a really bad hangover.
