Bek Lyrics

Novacane

(From the Odelay Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen, Mike Simpson, John King]

Keep on truckin' like a novacane hurricane
Low static on the poor man's short-wave
Short fuse, got to dismantle
Code red: what's your handle?

Mission incredible, undercover convoy
Full tilt chromosome cowboy
X-ray search and destroy
Smokestack blacktop novacane boy

Got so numb, longhorn drums
Detonate with the suicide gate
Test-tube, still-born days
Telescope rays in the rabies haze
Got the momentum
Radioactive meltdown!

Step aside for the operation
Full spectrum generation
Cyanide ride down the turnpike
After hours on the miracle mike

Grinding the gears, eighteen wheels
Pigs and robots riding on their heels
Ploughin' through a roadblock
Making a sandblast
Diesel inferno moving like Drain-o
Down the horizon, purple gasses
Semi-trucks hauling their asses
Novacane, hit the road
Expressway explode!

Novacane! Novacane!
