"Lava" as written by and Al/barker Jourgensen....
Hot lava
Big Monkey flow
Chokin' on a color
Floating down like a rain ("Oh yeah")

Hot lava
Cool down
Big travel every town
Roll it over with a ball and chain

Hot lava
On the always
Make ready to burn
What the hell is in your
Lost and your found
Got lotta those time
Some owner lost
He wants nothin' but the kick underground

"(Be Healed, Be healed!)"
Hot lava, lava
"(Be Healed Be healed!)"

Big kicka mule
Dipped in hot cotton
Make water like candy
And a fever like mine
Big boiler
Make rotten grey matter
not spoiled like the child who pops them two at a time

"Be healed!"
Hot lava, lava
"Be Healed, Be Healed!"
Hot lava
Hot lava

    My InterpretationAwesome, powerful song. A few corrections;

    First lyrics are
    "Hot lava,
    Come Down,
    Big Monkey Flow"
    And another is that he says
    "Big kicka mule
    dipped in black cotton" not hot cotton.

    Anyway, in my opinion the song is no question about drugs... The title is perfect. In nature, Lava is awe inspiring to witness first hand, a rush of sorts (not unlike the hot rush from taking certain drugs). But once lava gets out of hand, it can be quite destructive. Also, as lava cools, it hardens and more and more lava and rock build up on top of it, representing addiction. Each verse represents a different drug. The first is alcohol, 2nd marijuana, 3rd coke, 4th heroin, and 5th is meth. After certain "gateway" drugs like alcohol and MJ, one just wants to get higher and higher, building up more and more of an addiction to harder and harder drugs (alluding to the lava build up once again)... Thats how i feel about the song anyway...

    I may be wrong but its still a bada$$ song...
