Bek Lyrics

American Wasteland

(From the US Devils Haircut Single)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

You guys are posers!
This next song is called "American Wasteland"

Something's wrong 'cause my mind is fading
And everywhere I look there's a dead end waiting
Temperatures dropping at the rotten oasis
Stealing kisses from the leprous faces

Heads are hanging from the garbage man trees
Mouthwash, jukebox, gasoline
Pistols are pointing at a poor man's pockets
Smilin' eyes whippin' out of their sockets

Devils haircut in my mind
Devils haircut in my mind
Devils haircut in my mind

Love machines on the sympathy crutches
Discount orgies on the dropout buses
Hitching a ride with the bleeding noses
Coming to town with the briefcase blues

Devils haircut in my mind
Devils haircut in my mind
Devils haircut in my mind

Something's wrong 'cause my mind is fading
Ghetto-blasting, disintegrating
Rock and roll, know what I'm saying?
And everywhere I look there's a devil waiting

Devils haircut in my mind
Devils haircut in my mind
Devils haircut in my mind
Devils haircut in my mind
Devil!

Can I get a little more guitar in the monitors?
Turn the bass down a little bit too
This next song is called "Go To Hell"
