96 Quite Bitter Beings
by CKY

Album: CKY Vol. 1 (2001)
  • With my perceptions in a mix
    Down twenty miles through the sticks
    To the cloudy town of Hellview, Population 96

    Excessive vacancy, well maybe
    In the shadow of an eye
    All the strangers pass right through
    Where the rules just don't apply

    At the fork turn left a store
    But on the right stay free from sight
    'Cause 96 quite bitter beings
    Like to stack the bodies high

    The only way to ever leave is
    Overflooded by the storm
    And entanglement in Hellview
    Brings you fear in fifty forms
    They've deleted all the tourists
    At the bottom of the lake
    And not one supports the cause
    To leave the blood stay in the veins

    Here, three miles back is where we are
    All we ever wanted was an answer
    Civilized are close but way too far
    All we ever wanted was an answer

    Footprints giving clue to where we are
    All we ever wanted was an answer
    Civilized are close but way too far
    All we ever wantedWriter/s: CHAD GINSBURG, DERON MILLER, JESS MARGERA
