With my perceptions in a mix
Down twenty miles through the sticks
To the cloudy town of Hellview: population 96

Excessive vacancy, well maybe
In the shadow of an eye
All the strangers pass right through
Where the rules just don't apply

At the fork turn left a store
But on the right stay free from sight
'Cause 96 quite bitter beings
Like to stack the bodies high

The only way to ever leave is
Overflooded by the storm
And entanglement in Hellview
Brings you fear in fifty forms

They've deleted all the tourists
At the bottom of the lake
And not one supports the cause
To leave the blood stay in the veins

Here, three miles back is where we are
All we ever wanted was an answer
Civilized are close but way too far
All we ever wanted was an answer

Footprints giving clue to where we are
All we ever wanted was an answer
Civilized are close but way too far
All we ever wanted...

    It's about opening wide the anal vortex of a hippie girl about to give birth to a cabbage out of the wrong hole.

    Its about these people geting lost in a town were strangers are unwanted and are killed, and are entraped once they are their. They cant leave becaus its "over flooded by the storm" ,obviously these town occupants "96" are crazy and know how to entrap.. Kinda reminds me of the devils rejects.. Or chainsaw massacre.. But thats just my point of veiw.. Im sure theirs different ways to understand it.. Llike a mind warp.. Cause they do say "hellview"

    This song came to me through my brother and my fiance. They were listening to it one night and I heard my fiance singing it. I don't know if I fell in love with this song because it's amazing, or if it was because my fiance was singing it. lol :)
