Yeah…yeah….yeah….OK.


Searching for blood in the salty sea
The sun beating down on the chest and back of me
Looking for drugs in a southern town (Hey…hey…hey…hey).
I've got this red right hand that points me south.
The puke green cloud just spat me out
Into the hot heartland; I've landed with no chute


I hear "Hey…hey…hey…hey,
Come pollinate me…hey….
Hey…hey…hey…hey).
Come pollinate me…hey."

Across the room, across the room….
I hope to watch you writhe again soon.
Across the room, across the room….
I hope to watch you writhe again soon.

Alright, we're gonna do it again for you now, ok….
Yeah….Oh yeah, Yeah….

They've got the army of ears--they can't hear you now.
I've got the piss in my veins and these furrowed brows.
You've got this one last chance to burn me, turn me down
If not, I've got these last twelve bucks to spend on you.
You can take me anywhere your sick mind wants to.
I'll use your South to fuel me using you..oh...

I hear "Hey…hey…hey…hey,
Come pollinate me…hey….
Hey…hey…hey…hey).
Come pollinate me…hey."

Across the room, across the room….
I hope to watch you writhe again soon.
Across the room, across the room….
I hope to watch you writhe again soon.

Oh….oh….

I hear “Hey…hey…hey…hey.
Come pollinate me…hey…."
Hey…hey…hey….
"Come pollinate me…hey."
Hey…hey…hey….Come pollinate me….
Across the room, across the room….
I hope to watch you writhe again soon.
Across the room, across the room….
I hope to watch you writhe again soon….
I hope to watch you writhe again soon.
I miss you, girl. You're all that makes me true.

I always took "come pollinate me" as have sex. Pollination is the reproductive process for flowers between the birds and the bees, which today has a sexual connotation. So he could have just said "hey come impregnate me" but that wouldn't sound as good.

The title makes me believe that it's about the hospital in Texas that Max was in.
The lyrics, on the other hand..
/Confusion.

If we look at it from that angle nina, we could assume as he's going crazy in Texas, he's hearing voices of people wanting him to have sex with them, rather than someone actually wanting to.

It's possible.
I mean, it's hard to decipher it - being bipolar I know how mental breakdowns go..it varies from human to human.
But the title REALLY makes me think of that hospital, it makes so much sense in my brain..lol

Yeah maybe we can get some more input from some other people. It definitely sounds like he's going crazy in the song though from the lyrics.

Also, I don't know anything about playing music, but there's like a minute or two in this song of just instrumentals and him making crazy sounds. And its amazing. And I could dance along to it all day.
