  • 3 Time to Melt
  • Lay me down on a griddle of sweat
    Lay me down, it's been a long day
    Time to unwind, time to relax
    Let the tension flow away

    My body's weary and full of holes
    Hollow jets in my fingers and my toes
    Too tired to masturbate
    No sound in the dark as I float in outer space

    Touch down on an astroturf plain
    Peewee golf balls roll by my face
    Golf tees hammered through my feet and my hands
    Nailed as an example again

    Tied down with fishing line
    Lilliputian sacrifice
    Fireworks go off, I hear the cheers
    Smell the hot dogs
    Smell the mustard and the beer

    Sharp needles pierce my flesh
    Hypodermics press down and inject
    20 gallons of Canfield's diet Fudge Soda
    Effervescent bubbling chocolate blood

    Micron by micron my flesh starts to melt
    All that's left is brain and bones
    Hot beams on the cool wet sand
    Bury me- with the help of the wind and the waves

    Submerged in the cool soil
    Earthworms crawl in and crawl out
    Further down is the underground aquifer cave
    The bats and blindfish
    Are all my friends

    Soil hardens and it starts to crack
    The lake is dry as desert air
    Sidewinders crawl through my eye sockets
    Their soft white underbelly feels like love

    Blowing tumbleweeds stick to my ribs
    Night falls, the sky is red
    Captain Beefheart flies up on gargoyle wings
    Talons reach down to take me back again

    Reborn on a bed of white
    Incubator filters out the light
    A thousand breasts massage my face
    But Life is calling to take me away
    (Open up, we have a warrant)
    Learn to walk another day
    Learn to walk another day
    Ohm, ohm, ohm, ohm, etc
