An experiment in postmodern absurdity. Masking under Guns N'Roses-like mix of blues-metal and punk attitude, this song has absolutely no meaning to offer as its lyrical content was created by a computer program that generates random phrases.

This is what happens when The Dirty Blue take apart and reassemble an idea based on a simple Hungarian gypsy tune.


found a machine gun
of the clerk,
sarcastic redheads
went to work,
forgot their
skanky tweezers in
an anesthetized

I’ll give them to read
my farewell theory

I’ll give you to read
my farewell theory
tyrannical seeds
will not set me free

flat-chested bicycles can wait
my fluffer’s roommate’s always late

I’ll give them to read
my farewell theory
tyrannical seeds

some may say she looks like a guy
tell me why she
is collecting jars full of flies
