She was going with a cinematographer
Everyone knew that he was really a pornographer
They went down to the dance and grind
And everybody was feeling fine
She was talking with syllable lisp
And everybody she knew was gonna get the twist
And they all went down and did the porqupine
And everybody was feeling high
You are so hot
I would like to steal your digits
And I'm so hung up on it
I would like to
Move away from it
We are so caught up with things
We should pull eachother's triggers
And I'm off
She was going with a cinematographer
Everyone knew that he was really a pornographer
They went down to the dance and grind
And everybody was feeling fine
She was talking with syllable lisp
And everybody she knew was gonna get the twist
And they all went down and did the porqupine
And everybody was feeling high
I've got a girlfriend out of the city
I know I like her, I think she is pretty [x4]
Last call!
It's closing time
I'm on the road to god don't know
My brain's the burger and my heart's the charcoal
It's closing time

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl whose boyfriend is getting her high on heroin ("they all went down and did the porcupine") then films her in porn videos ("They went down to the dance and grind "). She hasn't told anyone about it, yet ("And everybody she knew was gonna get the twist")
    The lines "I've got a girlfriend out of the city" and "I know I like her, I think she is pretty" could be written from the perspective of the girl's boyfriend who lives away from the city and doesn't know she's having an affair with the pornographer and could be there to convey that in modern times, even those closest to you know nothing about you.
    At the end of the song, the girl is very depressed, and doesn't know what to do ("I'm on the road to god don't know / My brain's the burger and my heart's the charcoal") and is either leaving a bar or is going to kill herself, possibly both ("It's closing time")
