about

While recording the vocals to this- it literally tortured my wife. She hated the melody sans the music. Then she heard the full song, and it magically became one of her favorites! The melody does get a bit manic. .

lyrics

Electric light like fireworks show
It all began in the dark
The smoking man caused the spark
(Yeah you know he likes it!)
The spooky tale told fireside
It makes the kids' skin crawl
But I don't feel that at all-
In fact it's turning me on!

I want to be there when the whole thing blows
And see the mushroom grow
We'll hack and cough a beat through smoke
So armageddon dope.

They say the loosest lips will always sink ships
But then right after they're kissed
They disappear into mist
(Oh like it's magic!)
The grandpa pa was powerless
Weakness pecked him like a crow
Until he couldn't say no
He became nothing then....now!

I want to be there when the whole thing blows
And see the mushroom grow
We'll hack and cough a beat through smoke
So armageddon dope.

I wanna be there when the flash arrives
And watch bad habits die
Burning my shadow in the concrete drive,
I'll see armageddon live

See armageddon live
