This is the place where all
The junkies go
Where time gets fast
But everything gets slow

Can I get some Vaseline?
Step into a modern scene
Take a chance on that
Which seems to be the making of a dream

I don't want to do it
Like my daddy did
I don't want to give it
To my baby's kid

"This is my calling", I said, my darling
Shocking, appalling, all I can do to you
"Hammers are falling", I said, my darling
Shocking, appalling, all I can do to you

This is the place where all, the devils plead
Their case to take from you what they need
Can I isolate your gene? Can I kiss your dopamine?
In a way I wonder if she's living in a magazine

I don't want to say it
If it isn't so
I don't want to weigh it
But I've got to know

"This is my calling", I said, my darling
Shocking, appalling, all I can do to you
"Hammers are falling", I said my darling
Shocking, appalling, all I can do to you

I saw you out there yesterday, what did you want to say?
A perfect piece of DNA caught in a flashing ray
I caught you out there in the fray, what did you want to say?
A master piece of DNA caught in a flashing ray

Can I smell your gasoline?
Can I pet your wolverine?
On the day my best friend died
I could not get my copper clean

I don't want to take it up
With little Joe
I don't want to fake it
But I've gotta know

"This is my calling", I said, my darling
Shocking, appalling, all I can do to you
"Hammers are falling", I said, my darling
Shocking, appalling, all I can do to you

I am a misfit
I'm born with all of it
The fucking ultimate
Of love inside the atom split

I'm in a flash ray, a mash of DNA
Another poppin' Jay, who thinks
He's got something to say
