East Texas Rain




East Texas rain making me insane
Coming down like blood dripping out of my brain
Skull on fire with a dark desire
Hear my woman's been fucking the whole church choir
East Texas rain making me insane
Coming down like blood dripping out of my brain

Crosscut saw shivering in my hand
Drank a bottle of whisky until I had a plan
Come up through the back door screen door slams
Now a man without a head ain't much of a man
Crosscut saw shivering in my hand
Drank a bottle of whisky until I had a plan

Slaughterhouse skull puncher against her head
As she's lying there dreaming about the lies she said
Kiss on the lips and now she's dead
A whole lot holier with her brains on the bed
Slaughterhouse skull puncher against her head
As she's lying there dreaming about the lies she said

Like a wind-up toy with an unsprung spring
I walk through the town and make the whole choir sing
Skull punch percussion with the angel's screams
Everyone tonight is going to have bad dreams
Like a wind-up toy with an unsprung spring
I walk through the town and make the whole choir sing
