Whoa, this is good stuff.
Look at the shapes
The air is tough.
I'm flying
I'm not crying
My fingers shoot fire
I'm not a liar
I love my dealer
Here in the painting I can feel her
Hours and hours of bliss
Hey mom, you should try this.
Mom? Mom?

I feel the mind probe scan
This is the head that's not a man
I can't see no more
Acid and coke are just a bore
I feel the mind-probe scan
I'd rather go and get a tan
I can't see no more
Sucking on a mound of gore

I was so young then, it was so sudden
It all happened when I fell over a bump
Down to my knees with a thump

It was a head, a head it was
My mother's head is what it was.
