"Wave Motion Gun" as written by and John K. Wozniak....
Backstage behind the curtain there's an...
There's an armchair with a secret engine and you...
You climb in and get naked watching Star Blazers

Wish you had their amenities
To fend off your enemies
In one big blast from your wave motion gun

And so you reach down to that secret panel and there's a...
There's a whole raft of little buttons and you...
You pick one and hope it takes you to Mars

Soon there'll be no pain again
You'll feel like yourself again
When you shoot all your heroin
In one big blast from your wave motion gun

And so downstairs behind the oven there's a...
There's a dark hole where... where the gas comes in
You know you should... you should climb in
It'll get you there so much faster

Soon there'll be no pain again
You'll feel like yourself again
When you shoot all your heroin

In one big blast from
In one big shot from
In one big blast from
In one big shot

From your wave motion gun
Wave motion gun
Wave motion gun
Wave motion gun
Wave motion gun
Wave motion gun

    General CommentI really like this song. Obviously the song is about heroin. I really like how this song captures the "just a little bit higher" aspect of opiate use. Whenever I use hydrocodone I tend to use something else once I'm high, not because hydrocodone isn't fun, but beacuse the mindset is "just a little bit higher." Almost all of shapeshifter lends itself well to drug use. Marcy playground is so underrated.

    General CommentAnd of course, the name comes from Star Blazers.
    Star Blazers was on of the early anime series that came over to America. Used to watch it growing up in the 80s. There was a spaceship that looked like an old battleship with a huge gun in the front, the Wave Motion Gun.

    General CommentThis is such a wonderful song, there is no wonder why Wozniak (song writer/vocalist of MP) sees it as one of his best [as proclaimed on his blog].

    This song reminds me of getting high on opiates (not heroin, but various other forms of opiates) and crawling into a comfortable place and watching a favorite movie or favorite TV show [Star Blazers?!]. Something you can be completely comfortable and content with.

    Bliss.

    General CommentI think everyone wanted Batman's car growing up.

    Batman never had awesome powers, but he was decked out with cool weapons that could blow the bad guys away.
