Melvins – The Green Manalishi (With The Two Pronged Crown) lyrics

"The Green Manalishi (with the two pronged crown)"
(Peter Green)

Now when the day goes to sleep
And the full moon looks
The night is so black, darkness cooks.
You come creepin' around,
Making me do things I don't wanna do.
I can't believe that you need my love so bad.
You come sneakin' around,
Trying to drive me mad.
Haunting all my dreams,
Making me see things I don't wanna see.

Cuz you're The Green Manalishi
With the two-pronged crown.
All my tryin' is up,
Are you bringin' this down?
Take all my lovers away,
Leave me here
Just tryin' to keep from following you.

    The definitive version of this song is the one by Judas Priest from their Hell Bent For Leather album. The lyrics are a really worrying example of what happens to you under the influence of lsd. Check wikipedia for Peter Green's own interpretation. He claims that the song is about the evil of money. So money is the devil, but as long as you have enough of it to pay your dealer it's an easy thing to say. Try telling the unemployed about the Green Dollar being a demon from hell.
