and buggy eyes
and the hydrogen jet fast
i’ve been losing sleep at night
consist of devil, laser the laser
and buggy eyes
and the hydrogen jet fast
bring it, initiate a love affair
when the movie was back to earth

and the hydrogen jet fast
let’s crawl, let’s scratch, let’s tear out the life force
let’s tear out the life force
