"Skin Horse" as written by and Roger Osborne....
Ty plays the battle fold though bastardly
Follow said criminal in the form of his hand
He'll chance the overload when it's all about the end
Maybe the size and soul will settle in

Everyone is shifting all around his agonize
Can't make the sort of sound this and dust could sanitize
Gonna see in Earth all edge
Wishing I was at the where all dull razors all began

Shoulder only angel seven half of every golden an
On those who really help me time unveils
Ty regarding visionary

Give it all to me I didn't' want to be
Singled out for the fire you little tangy
Make a mind to make a friend give it up toenail
Too old for that buy me a big one

To say what's real your not the boss of me
Meet my old man he's just a funny
He makes more than you will take it away
I've got the only wisdom we're still friends

In time it will all be over it will be good
But I'm old and I'm getting older knew I would
Later days finally coming on take me away
Little place near the holy one and let's run

    General CommentAll those who really helped me, Time unveils. Such a powerful line followed then by such an oddity. Melvins never disappoint.

    Song ComparisonLove this song. Might be my favorite Melvins song. Can't believe it took me this long to finally listen to Stag for whatever reason. This song really reminds me of Ween - Don't Laugh (I Love You) and you will know what I'm talking about.

    Love the hyper-octave'd guitar pedal use throughout this album. Love when guitarists use whacky pedals and make them work. I'm guessing he used a Digitech Whammy or something.

    My InterpretationIt's about a few things, from what I gather. Judging by the title of the song, some of the lyrics, and the "sound effect" starting at 2:45, the underlying theme is fapping. The lyrics decorate the action with motivation: pleasure, frustration, and loneliness.
