Track Name: Trash Juice
I had a long night terror, shufflin thru the shadows
I'm gettin handies by the ladies of a billion sorrows
By morning, come tomorrow, beg or steal or borrow
Buy myself some more trash juice, I'm feelin real loose
Shiftin down among the dust, it's either drugs, the rush of lust,
Or some unspeakable horrors.

She's in the hands of some unspeakable horror
It's kinda hard to settle down when yr the scavenger's daughter
She comes by to wind the watches, blows out all the torches
Drinks herself some more trash juice she's feelin real loose
Then she looks at me all solemn, let's get down to the bottom
Of some unspeakable horrors.

It's not a many splendid thing to be among these heathens
W/ dirty teeth & bloody knuckles, the mind has its reasons
If these were the early ages, you think we'd be the sages
Drinkin some of that trash juice, feelin real loose
& recitin by the fire w/ golden voice & lyre
Some unspeakable horrors.

There's bats inside the Vatican, waitin in the rafters
There's men of power that can blow up this world forever after
They tell us take it day by day, the heard won't go astray
Drink some more of that trash juice, feelin real loose
There's no time outside the present fulla hate & guilt resentment
& unspeakable horrors.

I'm pissin in the moonlight, waitin for a sign
Cause every god deserves a devil in the heavens so divine
Truth it comes w/o a warnin, drinkin til the dawn
I ran outta my trash juice, I'm feelin real loose
I'll never grow up to be a man so long as I'm in the hands
Of some unspeakable horrors.
