Album: Big Whiskey And The Groogrux King (2009)
  • Please find your place
    The room grows scarce
    Once we?re all inside
    The service can begin
    For a moment, if you please
    Forget what you believe
    And naked, you will see
    That we are all the same

    But how, your kiss
    Your words, your lips
    Your flesh, your bones
    Exactly what you need

    Why should I feel intrusion?
    Why be afraid of what we do not understand?
    To eliminate exclusion
    Cut out the differences to feel like we belong

    Drum beats louder

    Open up your head
    Open up you primitive
    Open up your mouth
    Open up your head
    Your sweet primitive
    Open up your mouth
    It's coming out

    Out there, no food or drink
    How many days do you think you?d last
    On your diamonds and your pearls?
    I?m not a king, no, not a hero, not a fool
    I'm not perfect, I'm flesh and bone
    And I'm exactly what you need

    Drum beats louder

    Open up your head
    Open up you primitive
    Open up your mouth
    Open up your head
    Your sweet primitive
    Open up your mouth
    It's coming out
    Open up your head
    Scream, you sweet primitive
    Tell me what you said

    But how, your kiss
    Your words, your lips
    Not a gun to your head
    You're gonna die before you're dead

    Not sad, when you're gone
    But when your light?s still on
    Your dreams won't let you fly
    Don't be dead before you die
    Hunger, till fed, give love instead
    When it gets inside, watch the dead man squirm

    Above all things
    If kindness is your king
    Then heaven will be yours before you reach your end
