I was down in Georgia nothing was as real
As the street beneath my feet descending into air

The cauldron was a bubbling, the flesh was lean
And the women moved forward like piranhas in a stream
They spread themselves before me an offering so sweet
And they beckoned and they beckoned come on darling eat

Eat the summer cannibals, eat eat eat
You eat the summer cannibals, eat eat eat

They circled around me natives in a ring
And I saw their souls a-withering like snakes in chains
And they wrapped themselves around me, what a treat
And they rattled their tales hissin' come on let's eat

Eat the summer cannibals, eat eat eat
You eat the summer cannibals, eat eat eat

I felt a rising in my throat the girls a-saying grace
And the air, the viscous air pressed against my face
And it all got too damn much for me just got too damn rough
And I pushed away my plate and said boys I've had enough

And I laid upon the table another piece of meat
And I opened up my veins to them and said come on eat

Eat the summer cannibals, eat eat eat
You eat the summer cannibals, eat eat eat
You eat the summer cannibals, eat eat eat
You eat the summer cannibals, eat eat eat

'Cause I was down in Georgia nothing was as real
As the street beneath my feet descending into hell

So eat eat eat
You eat eat eat
You eat eat eat
Eat eat eat
