Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Intro (x2)

---> Play Riff 1 over:

Talkin shit like shut up and listen to me

Because cutting through the crap is my specialty

Like a bomb I'm dropping yes a ton of lead

You're trying to figure out the last thing that I said

---> Play Riff 2 over:

I'm a redwood I'd love to be a tree

Yes I'm a druid

My words are flowing out like a fluid

Never give in never conform

I'll be busting out rhymes in a triplet form

---> Play Riff 1 over:

Dead leaves on the trees in spring

Can't hear the birds sing

A light powdered snow on the ground is glistening

Vipers slither atop a colder ground they quiver

---> Play Riff 2 over:

A crack in the sky snow is falling and inside we shiver

With a brownskin friend claiming kin to Crazy Horse

I stink of veno my greasy clothes are rancid

But I tip the bottle back the spirits are in me kid

---> Play Chorus over:

Firewater - Call it liquid rapture

Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature

Firewater - The world's a mixture

Of broken liquored people get the picture

Firewater - Call it liquid rapture (Nick repeating "firewater")

Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature

Firewater - The world's a mixture

Of broken liquored people get the picture

---> Play Riff 1 over:

Whiskey be spittle at the corners of my mouth

I'm rather liquored a light flickers I got the shakes and jitters

I roll I'm like Raging Bull bumrushing the snow

Hand to my head sway in the fire I've waded into

---> Play Riff 2 over:

All alone except the whiskey voices

Whores laugh neon signs flash other choices

I stagger stumble to toast the past while I mumble

Slur my song slow porno show marquee words crumble

---> Play Chorus over:

Firewater - Call it liquid rapture

Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature

Firewater - The world's a mixture

Of broken liquored people get the picture

Firewater - Call it liquid rapture (Nick repeating "firewater")

Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature

Firewater - The world's a mixture

Of broken liquored people get the picture

---> Play Bridge over:

You're hanging around the house with all your friends steady drinking

Smokin the green weed and your head is sorta blinkin

You're going with the flow and everybody's getting plowed

And the voices and the music and the noise is getting loud

You've got a heavy buzz on when seven o clock rolls around

So you pile into the clunker and start heading downtown

Only nineteen but you know where you can get it

So you slide inside the bar and everything is hitting

By about eleven o'clock your brain is near dead

You really cant remember who was the one that said

"Let'ss go in the bathroom, and meet this guy Chuck

He's got a thirty dollar white powder pick-me-up."

Ten minutes later the whole vibe has changed

You try for conversation but you know you're acting strange

Your eyes are wide open but your smile is gone

You just keep fiending till the fucking break of dawn
