Put the needle to the record,
And hit me with your style,
Soon enough I'll,
Learn to unload to unload my mouth.
Can you see it's getting blacker,
The vibe up in this place
When I displaced,
What made me turn my face.

I can't wait.
I can't wait.

I jumped ship to a burning sow
Had a ball.
Atom bomb.

It was quite a dirty habit,
When the last thing I do,
Has a swine slewn,
Down martyr avenue.
Am I driftwood or hosana?
A knee-deep in disease.
I'm the body
Laid a 9 on my sleeve.

I'm a bitch girl.
I'm a bitch.

I jumped ship to a burning sow
Had a ball.
Atom bomb.
I jumped ship to a burning sow
Had a ball.
Atom bomb.
I jumped ship to a burning sow
Had a ball.
Killed a shark.
I jumped ship to a burning sow.
Had a ball.
Atom bomb.

Denial is a river in Egypt.
Division is a reunion in the south.
Soon enough I'll learn to...
Denial is a river in Egypt
Allusive as the communion in my mouth.
Soon enough I'll learn to...

I jumped ship to a burning sow
Had a ball.
Atom bomb.
I jumped ship to a burning sow
Had a ball.
Atom bomb...

Tell the one
About the man who dug
Holes so deep
He lost sight of his word.

    General CommentTell me this doesn't sound closer and make more sense:

    "Am I driftwood or hosana?
    A knee-deep in disease.
    I'm the body
    Laid ANONYMOUSLY

    ON THE BEACH GIRL
    ON THE BEACH"


    Also, "Allusive" should be "Elusive"

    General Commentthese lyrics rock!!! especially :

    Tell them it.
    About the man who found love
    It's so deep,
    He lost sight of his word.

    that part in the song is so touching!

    General Commentthe song is very cryptic, but i think the meaning came more into focus when you like at the title, "trailer park jesus". i think its about someone who is confused about their life and wants to get out of the hell-hole they're living in. they want to "jump ship" and blow everything up. and then the last stanza he kind of has a revelation and he doesnt want to become the man he's talking about. am i making any sense?

    General CommentHey Silverbean22, I think you're getting somewhere with that. I do think it has something to do with wanting to escape from the hell that life can be (Trailer Park), and wanting to be his own savior, saving himself from his unhappy existence (Jesus). Trailer Park Jesus. Makes sense right?
    That last stanza does have a sense of regret to it... I think that the "holes" are his fantasies of escape... and "digging so deep he lost sight of his world" means that he became so enraptured in fantasy that he almost forgot about reality. I guess he regrets giving up what life he had because he didnt like it... as though feeling bad because he had taken it all for granted.
    So in the end, is he saying that a bad existence may be preferable to none?
    These are just theories, but if it makes sense to you just say so....
