(I drink up, I drink up)

A red sky morning
A sailor's warning
Face down on the pillow
Sweet dreams of the soft night in jail

(I drink up, I drink up)

Climbing higher
On razor wire
Your eyes are tired
You think you're just down on your luck

(I drink up, I drink up)

I drain the poison
Let's dip the boys in
The weather was rough
Like the sea in a port in a storm

(I drink up, I drink up)

The black cats are calling
And shameless brawling
The boys will be boys
We're so cool but we can't catch our tail

(I drink up, I drink up)

It's kool-aid morning
It makes me horny
A fist full of tears
And I'll scream when my ship has come in

Your ship has come in
Your ship has come in

(I drink up, I drink up)

A red sky morning
A sailor's warning
Face down on the pillow
Sweet dreams of the soft night in jail

(I drink up, I drink up)

Squeeze the throttle
And tip the bottle
I run from all friends
I don't have to die to see the light

My luck is changing
I feel a raising
Deep in your head
And I'll scream when my ship has come in

Your ship has come in
Your ship has come in

    General CommentThis song has a dreamy feeling to it. It makes me think of a mass suicide.

    General CommentThis song is Team Sleep. It's Chino with Mike Patton, former singer of Faith No More and about a million other bands.

    General CommentActually, Jonestown , named so by Jim Jones, was a place in Northern Guyana. He left from San Francisco and then moved his followers and "church" to Guyana due to the limits in this country for nuts like him.

    General CommentWhat is the sailor's warning?
    More precisely what are the specific references to this suicide?

    General CommentIt actually sounds like he says

    "I dream of
    I drink up"

    Maybe it's both.

    Such an amazing song.

    General Commentwhy wasn't this on the album?? It's one of their best songs! Though that's probably because of Mike freakin' Patton...

    General CommentRed sky morning sailors head warning. Red sky at night sailor's delight. If it's a red dawn, that the day on the water will be shitty. If it was a red sunset the night before, the next day is a good day on the water.
    Rich Cambodia? Really? LMAO
    I have to say that the end of the song makes me think of a blow job.
    "my luck is changing
    I feel a raising
    deep in your head
    and I'll scream when my ship has come in"
    Ha! That just might be my sick mind at work. But listen to his breathing...

    General CommentOn the surface it seems to be about the Jonestown mass suicide. But deeper, it seems to be about some guy who can't really get laid getting drunk and having sex with an ugly girl.

    "As they say, 'Any port in a storm'" :)

    General Commentconsidering the context, "i drink up" makes good sense. :)
