Unholy ghost in this machine
Brother John Staggered out of his desert:
picking teeth with a scorpion stinger.
His eyes wide, evidently blinded
by the bone white sand (another mescaline vision).
He said- “Forty thousand years or forty God's-eye days
left me with no money and my devil to pay.
Now I’ll settle for a shot of scotch
and a chance to get a glance at the Reaper’s watch.”
It's so lonely being god like.
Your only friends are avatars.
I pay a visit just to get the spike,
and collect a few new battle scars.
are of no real concern;
I’ll always come back, always
come back to you.
I put the money in the brief case.
I got it from the man they call the Dead Ringer.
Caught a train to my secret place
where I met up with that underground singer.
She sang: “Forty thousand years or forty god’s-eye days-”
I was working for the cash to keep my devils paid.
All she could produce was a bottle of scotch;
I was pissed to see her wrist had on the Reaper’s watch.
It’s so lonely feeling godlike.
Can’t leave behind any evidence.
Let they who seek have do it in faith
as they approach my place of residence.
are of no real concern.
I’ll always come back
always come back for you.
I'm an unholy ghost in this machine.
Unholy ghost in this machine:
answering those dirty little prayers
for some of that
Ain’t it paranormal
how I can get away clean?
“God, fuck, and damn it” is philosophy:
taken from the man who said he’s seen it all.
I read the book, and I took it all in
while I was waiting for my devil to call.
It’s been forty thousand years (or forty god’s-eye days)
since I was lying by a corpse who was a pretty good lay.
Now, I'm sipping Tennessee (keep your bottle of scotch)
while I take the time to shine the Reaper’s watch.
This is what it is to be godlike:
you proportion the worms to the number of stars.
A hundred bullets, or just three good spikes,
and all your friends are avatars.
are of no real concern,
but they can always come back
always come back to you.
Yeah, they can always come back-
Always blow back on you.
