Meat Puppets – Scum lyrics

In some forgettable rhyme
We kissed the enemy till
We crawled across the border line

I thought we traveled out of time
Could not tell if it was night or day
There was, so it did seem, I say
You couldn't have heard me speak
Hand over all water
A fog so heavy that I
You know that means business

Under the stars

Under the stone
We find the scum
We find the scum
I thought a beautiful thing
On ruby hummingbird wings
A fire was lit within my mind
And then we drunkenly sailed
Went shivering up and down my spine
The water that quit our thirst

Was not from earthly vineyards mined
The gutter of our invisible shrines
