Something's wrong 'cause my mind is fading
And everywhere I look
There's a dead end waiting
Temperature's dropping at the rotten oasis
Stealing kisses from the leperous faces

Heads are hanging from the garbage man trees
Mouthwash jukebox gasoline
Pistols are pointing
At a poor man's pockets
Smiling eyes ripping out of his sockets

Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind

Love machines on the sympathy crutches
Discount orgies on the dropout buses
Hitching a ride with the bleeding noses
Coming to town with the brief case blues

Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind

Something's wrong 'cause my mind is fading
Ghetto-blasting disintegrating
Rock 'n' roll, know what I'm saying
And everywhere I look
There's a devil waiting

Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind

Devil's haircut! In my mind!
Devil's haircut! In my mind!

    It's about going on an really long acid trip and weird dangers. The music video, directed by mark romanek in 1996 was about beck walking in verious new york locations including coney island and chinatown. Beck also dances on an electronic billboard showing the stock markets from 1996.

    Everyting we (people) do is wrong. We have mutated into a sick captured species. No matter how you cut it, comb it, curl it style, or shave it - all haircuts are motivated by a persons desire to fit into a group and gain trust to so we can grab some little scrap or morsel or perhaps everyone's scraps & morsels.
