Lyrics

Big slide across bitter by hiding hold a hail

Sit down and hold this town in fever

This mind is most of all like a vulture on a nail

And now he knows distorting feeler hell

this time he knows distorting


Be now the first of all by the low end on avoid

It's a pig in's an eye it's a soul it's a seether

Big eye and hold it all by the riding on a head

Dig down in the voice dic-storting feeler hell

Chicks hide the most dic-storting
