The Most Drug Inflicted Lyrics?

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by paniak17, Aug 31, 2005.


  1. "happiness is a warm gun" by the beatles comes close.....

    "She's not a girl who misses much
    Do do do do do do
    oh, yeah
    She's well acquainted with
    the touch of the velvet hand
    Like a lizard on a window pain
    The man in the crowd with the
    multicolored mirror on his hobnail boots
    Lying with his eyes while his
    hands are busy working overtime
    A soap impression of his wife which
    he ate and donated to the National Trust"

    perticularly that part. what are your opinions???

    No, you need to listen to some really, really, drugged out stuff.


    At the Drive-In was insane on acid, ced and omar. Im pretty sure all their songs were inspired by trips.

    But as far as beatles go, i guess.

    Monster Magnet - King Of Mars

    You can rape the world and be creative now
    You can kiss the right side of your brain
    Oh, they can tell the tarot for the rest of us
    And I can crown me Tarzan, king of Mars
    Oh, they can tell the tarot for the rest of us
    And I can crown me Tarzan, king of Mars

    All the blazing suns
    Suck up all the gods and punks
    It's enough to change your life
    And you know I love to come
    I can see beyond your dreams
    I can see on TV
    Keep it all for me babe, all forever





    Monster Magnet - Third Alternative

    My hands up to the maker, my head's down in the bomb
    I swim in bloated vision, and I kiss you on the phone
    My heart beats so atomic, and I spill the sweat of drones
    A mouth screams to a hundred, and my lips split all alone

    Sometimes I think this pig will just explode
    Sometimes I hope this torture just goes on
    Well I'll stuff myself in a pi of darkness
    And I'll slam 'till I can't see home

    Would you like to hope for Eden, that I keep a steady hand
    Do you want to milk the syrup of a thousand year old man
    Shall we **** each other's babies, let momentum do its best
    Keep our shrieking little urges in our burned out little heads
    Well I sense a slight recoil was it something that I said

    Sometimes I think this pig will just explode
    Sometimes I hope this torture just goes on
    Well I'll stuff myself in a pit of darkness
    And I'll slam 'till I can't see home
    Dropping off the edge of nowhere
    Everything I've ever known

    This is what you asked for
    Now this is what you'll get

    Sometimes I think this pig will just explode
    Sometimes I hope this torture just goes on
    Well I'll stuff myself in a pi of darkness
    And I'll slam 'till I can't see home
    Dropping off the edge of nowhere
    Everything I've ever known
    I've ever known
    I've ever known
    I've ever known
     
  5. "I don't want a pickle
    I just want to ride on my motor cycle
    I don't want a tickle
    I just want to ride on my motor cycle
    And I don't want to die
    I just want to ride on my motor cy... cle.

    I realized it wasn't the best song I ever wrote, but I was comin' down pretty fast."

    THE STOOGES LYRICS

    "Down On The Street"

    Huh!
    down on the street
    where the faces shine.
    floatin' around i'm
    a real low mind.
    see a pretty thing - ain't no wall.
    see a pretty thing - ain't no wall.
    no wall,
    no wall,
    no wall.
    Uuh!
    yeah deep in the night
    i'm lost in love.
    yeah deep in the night
    i'm lost in love.
    a thousand lights
    look at you.
    a thousand lights
    look at you.
    i'm lost, i'm lost, i'm lost - yeah.
    Huh
    faces shine - real low mind.
    real low mind.
    i'm a real low mind.
    real low mind

    NIN "Sanctified" is about crack... If you've ever done it, or seen people on it, you will understand the lyrics (except the part about coming inside...)

    it's still getting worse after everything i've tried
    what if i found a way to wash it all aside
    what if she touches with those fingertips
    as the words spill out like fire from her lips

    if she says come inside i'll come inside for her
    if she says give it all i'll give everything to her

    i am justified
    i am purified
    i am sanctified
    inside you

    Heaven's just a rumor she'll dispell
    as she walks me through the nicest parts of hell (dance of hell)
    i still dream of lips i never should have kissed
    well she knows exactly what i can't resist

    if she says come inside i'll come inside for her
    if she says give it all i'll give everything to her

    i am justified
    i am purified
    i am sanctified
    inside you

    i'm just caught up in another of her spells
    well, she's turning me into someone else
    every day i hope and pray that this will end
    but when i can i do it all again

    and if she says come inside i'll come inside for her
    and if she says give it all i'll give everything to her

    i am justified
    i am purified
    i am sanctified
    inside you

    i am justified
    i am purified
    i am sanctified
    inside you

    The lady folded
    Her silver hair
    Behind her back
    With the strings of a veil.

    And cut me a pack
    Of a famous sword
    Sharp to East
    Her magnitude
    That made the table
    In an infinite tangle.

    And then the darkness came
    And wrapped on velvet feet
    And here through the window
    I saw a quickening eye.

    Reflecting time
    In the blowing night
    And pulled the shade
    To a clear green game
    And from the visions
    Riding heavy sea.

    And from the visions
    Riding heavy sea
    That cast the ships
    Into a sink as man
    And burn the ringing
    Don't wanna carry inside.

    Then the morning came
    Lapping up the winds
    From the tainted table
    That was serving time
    It's silver spoon
    That was breathing stars
    Images flown
    Like the birds of high
    Wings in the sun
    What a blessed sight.

    "In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
    A stately pleasure-dome decree :
    Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
    Through caverns measureless to man

    Down to a sunless sea.

    So twice five miles of fertile ground
    With walls and towers were girdled round :
    And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
    Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree ;
    And here were forests ancient as the hills,
    Enfolding sunny spots of greenery. "

    My favorite drug song is this one by an artist I forgot:

    I like drugs
    I really really like drugs
    I hope I die of an overdose
    While I'm getting my d*** s****d by a black w****

    CHORUS:
    Drugs are good for me and you
    Drugs are good for our kids, too

    I like to sell drugs
    I made a lot of money doing it
    I went to jail once for it
    But I brought my drug empire to prison

    CHORUS

    And I became the big shot of the prison
    And everyone there respected me and my money
    And nobody ever f****d with me
    Because I could have them killed with a nod of my head

    CHORUS

    If drugs are bad why have they been so good to me?
    (repeat and fade)

    Funny thing about this song...if you play it backwards, you can make out the words "Don't mod your bass...leave it stock!"

    And no, I didn't just make these lyrics up off the top of my head just because I thought this was a dumb topic. That's a real song written by someone else. Really. No, I'm serious.

    "That's It For The Other One"

    Words and music by Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, and Bill Kreutzmann ("That's It For the Other One," composed and written by Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, and Bill Kreutzmann.

    ["Cryptical Envelopment"]

    The other day they waited, the sky was dark and faded,
    Solemnly they stated, "He has to die, you know he has to die."
    All the children learnin', from books that they were burnin',
    Every leaf was turnin', to watch him die, you know he had to die.

    The summer sun looked down on him,
    His mother could but frown on him,
    And all the other sound on him,
    He had to die, you know he had to die.

    ["Quodlibet for tenderfeet": Instrumental]

    ["The Faster We Go The Rounder We Get: aka part 2]

    Spanish lady come to me, she lays on me this rose.
    It rainbow spirals round and round,
    It trembles and explodes
    It left a smoking crater of my mind,
    I like to blow away.
    But the heat came round and busted me
    For smilin on a cloudy day

    [Chorus]

    Comin', comin', comin' around, comin' around, comin' around in a circle
    Comin', comin', comin' around, comin' around, in a circle,
    Comin', comin', comin' around, comin' around, in a circle.

    Escapin' through the lily fields
    I came across an empty space
    It trembled and exploded
    Left a bus stop in its place
    The bus came by and I got on
    That's when it all began
    There was cowboy Neal
    At the wheel
    Of a bus to never-ever land

    [Chorus]

    ["We Leave the Castle"]

    And when the day had ended, with rainbow colors blended,
    Their minds remained unbended,
    He had to die, oh, you know he had to die.

    That is pretty weird. Especially considering this is the first time in months that I've actually listened to the Dead. If you don't have it and you have a fast connection you can download the show from gdlive.com . There is a Seraphin Studios Soundboard of this show in .SHN (lossless) format there. It's fast, free and legal. :D

    The closest I got to a New Year's show was in '88. At least I managed to get in on the 29th. :)
