"Skips On The Record" as written by and Omar/bixler Rodriguez....
Pregnant with the keys
To your stick shift mood
Can't get yourself ignition
Can't get yourself ignition

Grease-stained parking lot
Embed and loiter bottle tops
Dipped in the secretion
Of your syphilis flirtation

Must we go spell it out?
Roman candle, cradles, teething
Dressed in innuendos

"C" is for contraction
30 minutes apart
Umbilical agendas
In the coup de jat

"C" is for the cul de sac
Tiennamen reverse
Parking all the grandeur
In backseat afterbirth
Grease-stained parking lot
Loiter tops dipped in the secretion

Must we go spell it out for you?

Mao tse tung fervor
In his petty glance
In this cursive dysentery

    General CommentThis song is awesome, but the intro riff sounds almost identical to the main riff in the Sonic Youth song, Schizophrenia.
    This song almost seems like a tribute to Sonic Youth with the way it is.

    General Commenti don't know what it means, but it's my favorite song on Acrobatic Tenement.

    General Commenti think I know what it's about - but i'm honestly not sure.

    They mention Tiennamen Square and Mao, and there is a big portrait of Mao outside the Forbidden City in Tiennamen Sq, in China. There are also a lot of natal references ("afterbirth","contraction"). Perhaps he is writing about the law restricting numbers of offspring in China?

    However, my other slight insight was the kind of bitter-sounding reference to promiscuity ("syphilis flirtation") and references to cars and stuff. Tongue in cheek?

    Shit I don't know I only got the record the day before yesterday.

    General CommentOnly one layer in this song. A girl gets pregent because she is uneducated about sex. Then she aborts her baby like the people in China.

    I'll give a million cool points to theperson who can tell me what "coup de jat" means.
