[Verse 1] You want to know what Zeus said to Narcissus? "You better watch yourself" You want to know what Zeus said to Narcissus? "You better watch yourself" "You better watch yourself" [Verse 2] It's like a stranger had a key, came inside my mind And moved all my things around But he didn't know snakes can't kneel or prey Try to break my psyche down [Pre-Chorus] It's as if my feathers were wax And your artillery lead Do you like our bed? Do you like our bed? [Chorus] Deep six, six, six feet deep Deep six, six, six feet deep Yeah [Verse 2] [Pre-Chorus, 2x] [Chorus] [Verse 1] [Bridge 4x] LOVE is EVOL CON is CONFIDENCE EROS is SORE SIN is SINCERE SIN is SINCERE SIN is SINCERE SIN IS SINCERE [Chorus] [Verse 1]
- Lyrics inspiration: The close relation between sex and violence, between good news and bad news, helps to explain the compulsion of the admen to dunk all their products in sex by erogenizing every contour of every bottle or cigarette. Having reached this happy state where the good news is fairly popping, the admen say, as it were: “Better add a bit of the bad news now to take the hex off all that bonanza stuff.” Let’s remind them that LOVE, replayed in reverse, is EVOL—transposing into EVIL and VILE. LIVE spells backward into EVIL, while EROS reverses into SORE. And, we should never forget the SIN in SINCERE or the CON in CONFIDENCE. // Let’s tighten up the slack sentimentality of this goo with something gutsy and grim. // As Zeus said to Narcissus: // “Watch yourself.” (Marshall McLuhan)
- "Deep six" is a nautical term meaning to throw something overboard. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to recover something at this depth.
