"Hulahoop Wounds" as written by and Omar/bixler Rodriguez....
In a small ghost town, there's a little arcade
Where the poltergeists play their videogames
At the top of the roof he says
Game over they said, game over they said

Run and get your quarters in
Over cliffs we will swim ahead
Do the shackles underneath your bed haunt
The records in their grooves

Salem is home sentenced to live
Yes this I know, comes back 10 fold
At the bottom of a french blue pool
Roamed the drunk chipped tooth

Of a man of the moon
Burn furnace burn at the bottom of the cliff
Shined a diamond with no end to its trip
Hook and sinker

I wrote it all down for you
Match a name to the face

Do you suspect?
Do you confess, do you confess?

    General Commenti think it's pretty obvious, just reading a few of the lines gives it away

    General Commenti think that if anything, the 'run and get your quarters in' means, hurry up and sign the band (before another label) so we (the label) can cash in on this trend/ style of music/band. the 'at the top of the roof, he says "game over" ' part seems to be saying, "ok we've used you for all you're worth now we're done with you." This is a really good song, it has alot of great vocal melodies in it.

    General Commenti think its about how our big city culture affects ghost towns or towns of smaller population. in a big city you can find all types of people of all types of interest a small town kinda brings the word "flock" to mind

    General CommentI always PICTURED like casper type ghosts playing pinball lol

    but it being actually about oppression of being in a sucky neighbourhood where nothing remotely interesting happens, and how you get stuck with 80s games and not concerts or something?

    General CommentI could swear:

    "do the shackles underneath your bed
    haunt the shackles in their grooves"

    should read:

    "do the shackles underneath your bed
    haunt the records in their grooves"

    But I won't swear to hearing any lyrics these guys sang.

    (FWIW, "drunk chipped tooth of the man in the moon" and "shined a diamond with no end to its trip" don't seem to quite fit what's sung either.)
