Pixies – Monkey Gone To Heaven lyrics
There was a guy
An under water guy who controlled the sea
Got killed by ten million pounds of sludge
From new york and new jersey
This monkey's gone to heaven

The creature in the sky
Got sucked in ahole
Now there's a hole in the sky
And the ground's not cold
And if the ground's not cold
Everything is gonna burn
We'll all take turns
I'll get mine, too
This monkey's gone to haven

Rock me joe!

If man is 5 [3x]
Then the devil is 6 [5x]
Then God is 7 [3x]
This monkey's gone to heaven

    There was a guy, an underwater guy who controlled the sea. He got killed by sludge from New York and New Jersey (I understand, I live at the shore in New Jersey). He was a sea monkey and he's gone to heaven. We've polluted the waters. Now there's someone in the sky. And there's an ozone hole. And our pollution in the troposphere is slowing down weather to cause scorching sunlight, like the 2010 northern hemisphere heat wave. And if the ground isn't cold it's going to burn like the Russia wildfires and the fires in the Amazon. We've trashed our atmosphere. But this sea monkey has gone to heaven. Rock me Joe Santiago, the lead guitar player. And he play's a sick, totally ethereal, 3 note guitar solo that takes the sea monkey to heaven. I've heard the author say he enjoyed the bridge lines. Man is 5, or is God-like but not quite, the devil is 6, like 666, and God is 7. God is 7, or the number 7 has numerous references to completeness in the Bible and elsewhere.
