 Intro lyrics: Amputchture came
               Philistine praise
               Bottomless pit of empty names
               Incarcerated habit tore from the palms
               Severing the breast
               Melting on his arms

Lyrics:                                 Riff A
    Beneath those locks of dirty red hair
    A necklace of follicles with sabertooth monocles
                                          Riff A
    They want a bouquet of black rose gems
    Castrating kisses stalagtite stems
                                                 Riff A
    They went a built a capsule in the cyanide one
    Where the holiest of water would have you to drown

    Tomorrow is a gift...
  (w/heavy wah)        ^= bend and release
