Old Hell-Devil, Old Hell-Devil He Screamed

Old hell-devil, old hell-devil
he screamed

Flinging it down, why can't she leave
me alone?

Mental Illness

My medication’s not working anymore

            I’ve got a mental illness
            That makes me want to kill us 

The yellow lines keep swerving in the road 

            I’ve got to get away
            But they won’t let me get away 

I see my shadow always lurking in the door 

            I’m strapped in tight
            See the needle in the light 

My condition always keeps me on the floor 

            Feed me pills all day
Keep sharp objects away 


This mental illness wants to put me away 

            Returning from the war
            Got to settle the score 

Because I might be a danger to my self 

Shell shocked, mind fucked
All they say is good luck 

Because the proof is in the pudding 

What doesn’t kill you
Can only make you stronger 

I don’t want to live here –
I don’t want to live any longer!

Cotton mouth cat trap with sand paper lips
Got them sunken-in cheek bones, boiled sirloin tips
Goosestep marching 'round your studio apartment
Whiskey money’s gone – all done spent

Pruno! – Pruno!

Pear, grape or apple, makes no difference to me
Head swollen like a ball, the buzz is always free
Huffing gasoline in recycled paper bags
Chopping up paint chips – father is a fag

Pruno! – Pruno!

Comfort Food

And when I come home from a hard day chopping wood
My baby feeds me cornbread, makes me feel so good
I said when I come home from a hard day chopping wood
My baby feed me cornbread, it makes me feel so good
She give me blackeyed peas with ham hocks, it’s comfort food

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes
Gotta have ham and black-eyed peas
Collared greens, cornbread and biscuits
Gotta have it all, gotta have it all ...
