Adam: I'm not sure what it is about Animal's lyrics that make me want to write country music. It's a shame that Garth Brooks and those guys don't do more songs about collapsing body parts and digital network conspiracies and such. Maybe it's kind of an East Coast/West Coast rap feud. The Texan San Antonio country singers do the old school stuff and the new age West Virginia country singers do the new-fangled weirdo stuff. Hmmm. I'm down here in Florida, though. I guess that puts me in the same league as Jimmy Buffett. I can live with that. Maybe there's some kind of Bermuda Country music triangle between Texas, West Virginia, and Florida. Somewhere in the center of the triangle, souls are disappearing. I think that's called Nashville. What was I talking about? Nevermind.


My head caved in
and my heart got scared
My heart got scared,
"What will make me beat?"

My head caved in
and my mouth got scared
My mouth got scared,
"What else can I say?"

My head caved in
and my ears got scared
My ears got scared,
"Hello? Hello? Hello?"

My head caved in
and my appendix got scared
My appendix got scared,
"What am I doing here anyway?"

I puffed my head full again
And my body parts chilled
My body parts chilled
and everyone got cocky again!
