"Flavors" as written by and Matt Turner....
There was a red light coughing up a room of blood
And there were forecast seven inches of snow
And there were two tunes playing in my head at once
Arguing guitar and drums
There was a lover standing by her bed
With a cigarette burning on her hand
And there were moonbeams playing on her porcelain flesh
A capi ero alousca

[Chorus]
Company cars and shoes were never meant to play the blues
You were the only fool I ever wanted to make love to
Even within my youth I denied I wanted to
You were the only fool I ever wanted to make love to

There was a red Mayan parrot pulling chicken legs
And there were weak spots only she could detect
And as I rolled over to block the last ray of sun
In emergency all over the show
There was a blue light the other side of the globe
And there were four cats stretching out their claws
And there were two lovers separated by the telephone

[Chorus]

Your flavors are getting to me [Repeat: x4]
Your flavors [Repeat: x4]

    General Commentan incredible song, its one of a few that I can wake up to, normally waking up to a song makes me hate it, but not this one, somewhat peculiar. Anyhow, I THINK its about some guy who loves a rich woman (company cars and shoes were never meant to play the blues) but she's foolish (you were the only fool etc) and I'm not sure about the rest.

    The above is the product of a deranged mind :D

    General CommentI can help out with some of the missing lyrics:

    But there's a bed made of paraffin and chicken legs (?)
    And there were weak spots only she could detect
    And as I rolled over to block the last ray of sun
    in the angle, submerge

    I don't know if any of this is right except the third line, but maybe it'll help somebody else actually decode the lyrics.
