Primus – Green Ranger Lyrics 10 years ago
So I've never heard of acid called the green ranger before, but I'm convinced that is what the songs about. The lines about sensorial details, "electrifies the night, and amplifies the sight" definitely convey that meaning. Also, in Frizzle Fry - a song about an acid house at Les' college - there is a line, "Andy's painting green again, this time they might take him away". Seems like he often notes acid with a tad bit of wariness, "Watch out or you might loose the plot". Finally, the "Nevada city fire" certainly seems to indicate Burning Man. And yes, Les is partially deaf in his right ear from a supposed diving accident, possibly on acid, I don't know - that detail has never been mentioned. But yeah, great new tune with a very ambient tone!

Tom Waits – Army Ants Lyrics 14 years ago
I've tried looking up these weird creepy crawlies, but have only turned up a little evidence of these facts in the song being even agknowledged as true (copulating praying mantus' for example). Anyone know if these are just silly madeup facts, or if there are such beastly insects?

Primus – Hellbound 17 1/2 (Theme From) Lyrics 16 years ago
In an interview Les explained that the song simply was he and Ler wanting to do a theme for something. So they did this little goof of a ditty. Ironicly they would be asked to do the theme for South Park just after Tim left the group for a few years, or as I like to call them Primus' Shit Years.

Primus – Glass Sandwich Lyrics 16 years ago
Yah, the guy steps into a private protection dance booth (glass wall that seperates the dancer from the room where the customer jacks it) and the stage is elavated above him as he sits, "eye to thigh as she looks down from above" and sure enough its his former girl friend.

Les Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade – Cosmic highway Lyrics 16 years ago
It has been told to me that it is about a drug trip. From my source I hear that it's an acid trip, but I was thinking more along the lines of phsillocyben/mushrooms. But whatever it is, its is the best song the album.

Les Claypool's Fancy Band – One Betta Lyrics 16 years ago
When I saw Les and the Fancy band at Bonnaroo this past July, in the middle of this ditty he comented at what the song was about. He spoke of how we as Americans seam to have trouble excepting others gaining more new/better material possetions. As Americans, we have to be the best at it all, we look at others and concider that at that momment they indeed have began a contest which declares the person with the more nice/geniune object, the winner. WE can't settle for second, cuz' we got the biggest balls.

Oysterhead – Pseudo Suicide Lyrics 16 years ago
Let me shed some insight. well the line "there ain't no cure for suicide," basicly tells what the songs about. Once your dead, your dead, so be sure you really want to be dead. Also, Les was a carpenture before he became a famouse lyricist/bassist/frontman. So if he is unable to write anymore, hes gonna go back to buuilding rather than kill himself. Trey and Stuart are the other dudes so there you go with that. I don't know who Danny is though so scream if you do.Also it should be notted that this was the last song before their encour at Bonnaroo '06, it was amazing. Afterward Stuart told us he whanted to run naked umong us.

Grandaddy – Nonphenomenal Lineage Lyrics 16 years ago
The songs about the admenastration of many groups, mostly having to do with education or careers i think. In ye old days, to attend public school you had to take a test that showed you being worthy of school or not. The catch22 was that the test scored most average children as mentaly retarded. Such as in the song. The guys not concidered worthy to get the chance to make something out of himself for he is of "Nonphenomenal Lineage." So they send him packing. I think its Grandaddy basicly pointing out whats wrong with the design of some sellection programs in our society.

Les Claypool's Fancy Band – Of Whales and Woe Lyrics 16 years ago
I got back from bonnaroo sometime ago, and Les was the main reson why I attended. Now during the performance he briefly stated that to do your neighbor one better, is just American nature. The song is a satire, displaying in self explanitory lyrics (which causes me to question why I am writing this) the American attitude which is both loathsome and stupid. OH, and I got the fucking set list from the show!

Tom Waits – Circus Lyrics 16 years ago
Just sort of a story about a circus narrarated by a sort of loon. The story is self explanitory, and has no message to speak of for the most part. It's a dark and disturbing atmosphere, which stays true to Wait's more macbre "Real Gone" sound. Deffinetly my favorite song on the album. Oh, and for those who don't know Zuzu Bolin and Stavin' Chain are early blues artist from the south. AND PLEASE! if anyone can tell me what that instument is that is often used in circuses and street performances (the cliche ones with the dancing monkey in the fez holding the money cup and the guy playing the instrument.) From what I have determined its a organ like machine that produces circus like pipe music when the side crank is turned in a rotaional manner. Drop me a line if you know at sathington28@hotmail.com

Les Claypool and the Holy Mackeral – Highball with the Devil Lyrics 16 years ago
I got it! Its a dude who whent out one evening to a bar to get a babe "conquer what he coul" but he is shy so he gets a drink to slavidge his balls, and by mistake gets smashed and occupies the confidence but lacks the abillity to function properly. In there there may be room for what Russian said.

Primus – Bob Lyrics 16 years ago

Tom Waits – Don't Go Into That Barn Lyrics 16 years ago
Well it does have to do with slaves, but i'm almost positive that it dosn't ever take place on a slave ship; the story that is. The line about the ship is describing the barn, the barn appears like the hull of a capsized slave ship. And the final lines of the song are about taking a raft down the mississippi and ohio rivers. I get the suspicion that the main character like Yaqqai said is hiding a secret. And he is using a slave as a spy or henchman to do his bidding, or to find out whats going on. There is some tretchory afoot, but i'm not sure who is causing it. The narrator, or the "they" brought up in the interagation between the narator and his slave.

Tom Waits – Alice Lyrics 16 years ago
The album of ALice is was actually written (the musci was) for a German play about Charles Dogdson aka Lewis Caroll, and his pedapheliac lust for Alice Liddell. This song in perticular is startsthe theatricle play with Dodgsen recalling and longing for Liddell.

Primus – John the Fisherman Lyrics 16 years ago
I think the story is a frankeinstien of stories, a combination of childhood experiences/fanticies, also that probable story of the sinking ship, and I heard something about the stroy having something having to do with Les's father or grandfather.

submissions
Oysterhead – Wield The Spade Lyrics 16 years ago
Actually I havn't really checked the lyrics, but from the chorus I think its a sort of silique from the perspective of a conservitive goverment official. They don't want to make a scene for the public, but they are addressing thier minions to take care of the problem without making a mess. They are also fearful about losing the numbers in their population poles. I think the spade is a simale in a way making the polition a gardner, picking out the renegade weeds who could dismantle all that the gardner has worked for. So yeah, a song in the perspective of a conservitive leader who is fearful of over informed revolutionaries.

Oysterhead – The Grand Pecking Order Lyrics 16 years ago
idiotic is right guys, the grand pecking order is a song about the spperated social classes, and it is also an exprestion which is where the song comes from. And gay I think is the wrong term, the all great Snap(claypool) is just promiscuous, there is a great story for Primus fans, where while Brain was still the drummer the trio got bored one day and began to measure there dicks to determin who had the longest/biggest wang. Brain won, I didn't make this up. Take the "you don't know cock" test on www.primusville.com

Primus – Tommy The Cat Lyrics 16 years ago
So I thought I'd thow in my two cents, as some before me have wisley noted, the song is not meant to be lyricly compelling (Nor are many Primus tunes) but this actually is based off of an old kids story which has many counterparts. For instance the cool cat figure; much like the now haggered Tommy, can be witnessed in the animated Disney film The Aristicats. I think its brilliant as well to bring in the great Tom Waits as Tommy.

Primus – Over The Electric Grapevine Lyrics 16 years ago
Thought I'd chime in to, the article is correct for those who don't wish to check, the story is about a night les and adam had where they were on a shit l;oad of acid in the car. Also in the album T.P.B. were this song appears it should be noted that the lyric's illistration was done by Gates.

Oysterhead – Army's On Ecstasy Lyrics 16 years ago
ANd also during the British tests it was given to the troops in water based drinks before training. During Vietnam however saratingo the US administrated the drugs secretly, directly in to the soldiers in a number of ways. Theres a great film about it called Jacob's Ladder, really good! But yeah, we did try spraying it but that test lasted for barley a year; the chemicals dicapated in the air far to quickly for the enemy to even enhale.

Oysterhead – Little Faces Lyrics 16 years ago
As I understand it theres a current rumor stating that the song was conjuerd up the same way lucy in the sky with dimonds was. As the story goes I belive it was Les who's son told him this imaginative story of The Little Faces, Les loved the imaginative idea and drafted an idea of the figment creatures; later to be further developed into a song mostly due to the work of Trey. Theres another addition to the tale, the claims rthe child singing in the last momments of the song is Les's child singing the original story, or so it is told.

Les Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade – David Makalaster Lyrics 16 years ago
THe song is verbal irnoy, they are saying what nirvana would be like, what the world should be like; I personaly think its a great introduction into the dream-like world of purple onin. THe true world is described in the sequal on the album, "David Makalaster II" where the brutal reality is revieled in way that reminds me of Floyd's "In the Flesh". all three are great songs, but only one is fun to visit t.h.c. land while listening to...

Primus – The Last Superpower AKA Rapscallion Lyrics 16 years ago
(did not know you couldn't leave paragraphs; that or I suck at the typing game; I place fifty frog skins on the second guess) ANywho, songs about Bush jr., its sort of a charictature of his ethnocentirc badass attitude/ get-up. The song is sort of expressing what i believe to be Les's take on what the primal scences of our moronic presidant are. He's a bastered who is a deserter and does all he can just to reap the expansive wealth in any situation, AND he likes to be a caowboy. I hate him to. P.S. during the breakdown on the Hallucino genetics dvd, look at the large ordamits hagning on the stage's battens(big cieling poles who are not employed in the technical theatre industry) is you observe the projections which TIm and Les seem to be hypnotized by, you'll notice quick flashes of Bush's mouth and scouling brow. love -The Drewbylama
