Lyrics:

 

Get on the snake

With a swarm of motor flies

Get on the snake

Under the Cola colored sky

 

Don't worry, everything's clean

Road worthy, hungry and mean

 

Get on the snake

Where the metal river bleeds

Get on the snake

Where you never will believe

 

Hey baby, what's your disease

My heart's bleeding, I'm dying to leave

 

Get on the snake

Where the water turns to steam

Get on the snake

With a suicide machine

 

Don't worry, everything's clean

Road worthy, hungry and mean

Hungry and mean...

Hungry and mean...
