Jeff Richards Love this album...Listening to it makes me want to take acid with this blasting in my cans wandering up and down the beach. Amazingly hallucinogenic...dark and moody....the right amount of atmospherics and effects...its like a darker & trippier Soundgarden minus the over-the-top vocals. I will always wonder how I missed these guys their first time around. They are a new favorite mine and I look forward to their future releases. A repress of this first album would be awesome! Favorite track: Your Song.

Brian Mosser It has a grungy metally sound and i love it. It flows perfectly with my life anthems. Favorite track: Deep See Fishin'.

Mubla Na Thguob This is a great deal! Unfortunately, I accidentally bought the wrong size shirt because I'm a dumbass, but still, great deal!

Track Name: Deep See Fishin'
Since I saw you the last time
Things have changed on the inside
I got back from the desert
Found my Self in the sand

Lonely, spirit
Take my Self away
Still sweet, godflesh
Take me, cure me

Cried out to you and you showed me
Speak your sweetness in my ear
I climbed all of your mountains
Each peak a beacon to my home

Since I saw you the last time
Found my Self in the sand
I climbed all of your valleys
My desert home a beacon to my sheep
Track Name: Confessions
Well I found out I'm a sinner
But I can't help myself
So just kick me out, I'm a cancer
For want of drugs I'm alive

So come on, try it, it's soooo gooood
It won't hurt, it's just a gas!
Remember that party, you fucked up
All talk about tits and ass

So far you're still religious
Why won't you come on by?
Cuz you know we're here waiting
Waiting to get you high!
Track Name: Sprain
She told me to wait til tomorrow
But I won't last, the grasses are green
We like it a blotter of paper
See how nice our visions can be?

The tablet communion of strychnine
500 of vitamin C
2 more and I'm really humming
I'm peaking and now I can see

We walked for hours
You got it, your sprain
Ride on your speed, oh
You bought it, your sprain

Drink deep from the wells of confusion
No boundaries of human conceit
That buzzing so distant and quiet
Like waves in the ocean that speak
Track Name: O.D.
I crave my captor
She's been gone so long
She just sits there staring
Could there be something wrong?

I found the reason
She swallowed the pills
And we just sit here thinking…
So how come she's not blinking?

Why am I sitting by myself?
Why won't she talk to me?

She's so pale
But I won't let her go
Cuz she's just making me nervous
But soon we'll be home
Track Name: Chewing Aspirin
Come on, sit down, and let's get loaded!
We're skin-popping in our blistered arms
I call the 8-ball in the corner pocket
Let's make a run for the indoor farm

I've been numb so long
That I forgot my pain
I'm just chasing the old buzz
Drenched in acid rain

Alright we're sailing in the realm of unconscious
With blacklight shining in my dead man's eyes
The universe open to understanding
A revelation of the fucked up kind

We rode the rail now I'm chewing aspirin
My jaw's so tight I've got the joker's smile
We danced around the room and stabbed with such daring!
With shiny blue steel and sewing-spool eyes
Track Name: Hard Lung
Goddamn pussy on the acid plane!
10,000 mics will give your mind a strain
Wired up, dirty, want my piece of ass
I smoke all day from an ounce of grass

One-hit bowl won't do you no good
I've got a bonfire burning, but it ain't no wood
We sucked all night from the dirty water
I tried for both, but I won't get either
Track Name: Full-Acid
You crowd around me
You crowd around my head
See what you've made me?
I made my Self instead

Some cats they know me
6 sleeping in my bed
They're purring louder
Whispering in my head

I'm speaking to my sheep
I'm coming down

Speak loudly someone
Speak loudly from the soul
Cry out my freedoms
Til we bring it home

Speak to me, the channels are open
Track Name: Intuition
I heard a gunshot
Did you hear a gun?
It's close to me, too close to me
He's out there watching
His whiskers twitching
Try to see, don't look for me
Don't like your driving
So just let me walk
Just a mile, 200 miles
Inside I'm searching
That blackened tension
For to die, it's lonely

It's getting harder
To get out of bed
It's out there that I fear
Come on and try me
Sprung tight like teething
Oh no, that doorbell
And death she's crawling
Her mouthparts suck this
She's so sweet and loves me
Devour my essence
It's time to go now
With patent swears I cried aloud:

Track Name: Lycanthrope
Be gone! Cry in your own head
We all have our own itchings
See more of my true nature
Those rings are strung on the table

I'm gonna find you

It's strange the fuel of my anger
It's shameless the way that we murder
Sometimes I hear the demons buzzing
And I know it's time for the hunting

You'd go good with some butter
You'd go good with white bread
I wanna suck all your butter
And I wanna fuck up your head

Can't say it but I feel something
Yeah like the sun in my chest
Exploding yet coming together
Together like something obsessed
Track Name: Your Song
Just tell me, how will I explain this to her?
She knows me too well now
I can't get anything past her

Just shoot me, I don't deserve her favors
Tears well up in my eyes
I can't get her anything

I can't believe my eyes
Her anger's a disguise
She needs me to adore her
I've always just ignored her

Alright now, doing meth on the weekends
Smiling til my jaw's so tight
I finally gave her everything

Look my way
We're down here minding the scales
So much peace of mind
Including, but not only my friends
Kick, kick, kick the habit
