The Darkest Of The Hillside Thickets Lyrics: Great Old Ones (1996)
Here are all the lyrics from this The Darkest Of The Hillside Thickets album.


01 - Tarred And Feathered
Here's a story
of what I'd like to see
What I'd like to do
What I'd like to be
I have only a hatchet
Here's some injury
Let's have a cheer for fear
for blood and agony

These are the tools of my trade
I want you tarred and feathered

Here come the monsters
they know what to do
Hey, Monsters!
What can I learn from you?
You've been killing people
since the dawn of time
should I cut and clout
or should I drown and slime?

Here's a length of chain
here's a railway tie
Here's some silver fish hooks
to slip in their eyes
here's an ice pick
never let it thaw
Heres' some sandpaper to
rub their nipples raw

Here's some jellyfish
Hide them in their pockets
Here's some metal cubes and jacks
Force them in their sockets
Here's some barbed wire
Feed it up her colon
Take this iron mallet
Keep her knuckles swollen

02 - My Tank
"What was the CIA agent doing in the reservoir?"
"Bobbing up and down, of course. He was dead."

My tank
My tank is big
My tank
Has the hugest treads
For crushing heads

My tank
My tank is fight
My tank
Has armor plate
To save me from hate

My tank
My tank is for death
My tank
Has a great big gun
That fires bullets that weigh a ton

My tank
Has a great big gun
My tank
Has armor plate
My tank
Has the hugest treads
I am me
I am my tank

03 - Battered
Don't go changin'
To try to please me -
We could have never come this far

And don't go thinking
You're too familiar -
I like you battered, bruised, and scarred...

04 - One-Gilled Girl
One-gilled girl
One-gilled girl
One, one, one
She's my one-gilled girl
One-gilled girl

Out beyond the bay of Innsmouth
Caught in a fisherman's net
She came and rescued me
And set my heart free

Though she's a hybrid from above
We fell in love
She's a pale shade of green
She's only got one gill

One-gilled girl
One-gilled girl
One, one, one
She's my one-gilled girl
One-gilled girl

05 - Jimmy The Squid
Jimmy the squid usually late
Came home early to see his mate
Caught her in bed with another squid
He saw red he flipped his lid

Took a swim to blow off steam
Crushed and cheated, lost his dream
He came back to discover
The lifeless body of his wife's lover

Jimmy the squid

Murdered in a cloud of red
Then the cops showed up and said
"Let's go Jimmy, you're coming with me."
But Jimmy's too fast, he broke free

Jimmy the squid is on the run
Claims that he never killed no one

06 - Chunk
In the city, where the people dwell
Winds from out at sea sweep in a horrid smell
It's been a million years since they smelled it last
They can not realize the danger sweeping fast

Chunk (repeat 4x)

In asylums, restless patients scream
Visions of Cthulhu every night they dream
They see the signs of Chaos, beyond the wall of sleep
Their minds contain the knowledge that our own refuse to keep

Chunk (repeat 4x)

In the mountains, where the Mi-Go mine
People disappear from time to time
If I told you why, you might go insane
But it has something to do with canisters for your brain

Chunk (repeat 4x)

At the center of the Universe
Writhes a loathsome god-thing that couldn't be much worse
Larvae pipe and dance about the bubbling froth
Orbiting the Outer God that is Azathoth
(scream)

Chunk (repeat 3x)

07 - Diggin' Up The World
All day I grunt and groan
Gotta haul that stone
All day I work and toil
Gotta dig that soil

Dig (dig) (dig) (dig)
Diggin' up the world

All day I excavate
Uproot and agitate
Gotta dig for all I'm worth
Gotta move that earth

Dig (dig) (dig) (dig)
Diggin' up the world

I'm diggin' up the world
But I still haven't found that girl

Dig (dig) (dig) (dig)
Diggin' up the world

All day I grunt and groan
Gotta haul that stone
All day I work and toil
Gotta dig
Gotta dig
Gotta dig
Gotta dig that soil

Dig (dig) (dig) (dig)
Diggin' up the world

08 - Colour Me Green
("Cthulhu." 'Cthulu?!')

Violet flows from the wound in your chest
Black is the hole in which you rest
Your heart of gold was ripped in two
Soaked in the sickness that is you

Grey is the box that holds my head
Yellow's the wind when everyone's dead
Red is the blood dried on the rope
But green (green green) is your last hope

(Colour me green) is the colour of my god[x8]

[instrumental]

(Colour me green) is the colour of my god[x4]

(Colour me green) green is the colour of my god[x4]

09 - Space Ghosts
I'm waiting for the rain to come
I'm waiting for the light to go
My hands are shaking, my eyes are dry
I'm waiting for the clouds to cover up the sky

One day, the night will never end
One day the sun will burn away
No bells are ringing, no children sing
They're gonna pull my body from the ground that day

The ghosts from space
Have burrowed in my face
They name their price
Inside a block of ice

I'm waiting for the rain to come
I'm waiting for the light to go
My hands are shaking, my eyes are dry
I'm waiting for the clouds to cover up the sky

[chorus]
The ghosts from space
Have burrowed in my face
They name their price
Inside a block of ice[x2]

Space ghosts
Ghosts
Ghosts!

10 - A Thousand Fists
"Immense beings... A hundred limbs which resemble tentacles...
Minds of such control and capacity, that each limb is capable of performing a different function."

—Mr. Spock
Star Trek
Season 2, Episode 22
"By Any Other Name" (1968)

In dreams I sought to breach the other side
Now what I've wrought in her I won't confide
I found a nameless tome
I brought it home
but this she found
and burned it in the ground

In the ground
She buried it in the ground
(repeat 2x)

I hear its call, I can't escape that thrall
A thousand fists are spreading in the mists
They walk the wind
They're in the ocean depths
In space, no sound
They're moving in the ground

In the ground
They're burrowing in the ground

In the ground
They're moving now in the ground

Watch the sea, watch for me
Witness high velocity
Watch the waves, watch the caves
Watch the freshly covered graves

Watch the sea, watch for me
Witness high velocity
Watch the waves, watch the caves
Watch the loosely covered graves

In the ground
Their bodies move in the ground

11 - Big Robot Dinosaur
Dad's working on something special
Down in the basement
I yelled goodbye as I headed out
To wait for the bus

At school it's the usual tortures
Pushed and tripped in the hall
Hit in the head with a half-eaten orange
Face washed in the snow

Got home so fed-up and angry
My dad came to me
Took me down to the basement and said
"It's finally ready, son!"

My senses reeled, my heart stood still
Before me glowed a glory
Fruit of my father's laborious weekend
Towering three to four stories

We're on the rampage in a robot dinosaur
Me and my dad in his robot dinosaur
We're in the cab of a robot dinosaur
Stop on society, robot dinosaur
My tool of vengeance is a robot dinosaur
Talons ripping, robot dinosaur...

12 - Rocket Science
???

13 - Flee
"Now for the conclusion of this talk on pressure sores."

Flee, mortal, flee in fear
Cthulhu's coming, the end is near
All his children make their way
Across the ocean to claim his day

Flee, mortal, soon you'll know
Cthulhu deals the final blow
We are his voice, and it's our due
To sing of what's in store for you

Pain, death
Insanity, death
(repeat 10+x, until degenerating into incoherent babbling and screaming)

14 - Mustard Gas
I love my mustard gas I love it so
But there's things of mustard gas you ought to know
She keeps some in the bedroom she keeps some by the phone
A cloud hangs in the bathroom when she is all alone
She sees the yellow-grey cloud It brings its sickness near
She doesn't know quite what it is She's getting the heck outta here
Seeps through her polyester burns in the third degree
Her skin is turning black it's getting cold it's getting tough it's getting leathery.

I love my mustard gas It's so much fun
And you'll love mustard gas by the time we're done.
Mustard gas is pretty bad for you
so keep some in the office and the playground too
It buckles skin and it ruins sight
It intrudes in my nostrils but it feels alright.
If you've got blisters and their filled with goo
and there's a blood-tinged fluid seeping outta your nose
Feeling nauseous and your throat burns too
Then it's mustard wreaking havoc over you

15 - Everyone Calls Me Ted
Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat
Everyone calls me Ted
Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat
I put a bullet in his head
Everyone calls me Ted

Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat
Everyone calls me Ted
Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat
I put a bullet in his head
Everyone calls me Ted

Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat
Everyone calls me Ted
Ted was a dead rat, Ted was a dead rat
I put a bullet in his head
And now he's dead

16 - Diggin' Up The World (Acoustic)
1All day I grunt and groan
Gotta haul that stone
All day I work and toil
Gotta dig that soil

Dig (dig) (dig) (dig)
Diggin' up the world

All day I excavate
Uproot and agitate
Gotta dig for all I'm worth
Gotta move that earth

Dig (dig) (dig) (dig)
Diggin' up the world

I'm diggin' up the world
But I still haven't found that girl

Dig (dig) (dig) (dig)
Diggin' up the world

All day I grunt and groan
Gotta haul that stone
All day I work and toil
Gotta dig
Gotta dig
Gotta dig
Gotta dig that soil

Dig (dig) (dig) (dig)
Diggin' up the world

17 - Yog-Sothoth
YOG! SOTHOTH!
(Yog-Sothoth)

18 - Hookworm (Live)
Goddamn it, I can see them
Crawling just under my skin
They're leaving tracks in my fat
How'm I gonna get rid of them?
There's holes all through my privates
They hide between my hairs
They hang on with their tiny teeth

Take me away from here
Kill me you hookworm
Take me away from here
Drill me you hookworm

Your wings are cold with travel
Your tools are on the way
My mind will soon be leaving here
Just leave my body where you may
Brought to the rim of knowledge
Drilled deep into my skull
The buzzing eats away my mind

Take me away from here
Drill me you hookworm
Take me away from here
Kill me you hookworm

Today my knee split open
Out squirmed a mass of worms
So small and flat and white
Through my dry and rotten flesh

Like a shot from a comet's eye
Silent howls slip in from the sky
It's Yuggoth on the Outer Rim

19 - Burrow Your Way To My Heart (Live)
When you were a little girl you were stung by a wasp
And the skin on your arm puffed up and went red
Yet you so loved that wasp and all of his brothers that you
Brought the whole damn angry hive into your
Right into your bed

As a child you were riddled with ringworm
So your father cut them out of your skin
Then you felt so alone and remorseful
You tracked each little worm down and put them back in

Have you ever tried to neck with an earwig
Oh, your body is a home to your friends
You've a tick for each nipple and a leech for each finger
And a parasitic love that never ends

Do you have any love left for me
I'm small, but that's a start
Eat me up with your love
Burrow your way to my heart
Do you have any love left for me
I'm small, that's a start
Eat me up with your love, please
Burrow your way to my heart

20 - Please God No
Can you see my body
Can you see it grow
Do you see it throbbing
Won't you watch it glow

I don't want it, make it end
Stop this mad unsightly trend
I don't want it, make it end
Stop this mad unsightly trend
Take this red-veined, oddly-angled stone

Can you hear the thunder
Can you hear it crack
Can you see it stretching
Stretching through the black

Stirring in the steeple
Up on Federal Hill
Can't you feel it coming
Coming for to kill

See the haunter, watch it fly
Membranes pushing to the sky
See the three-lobed burning eye
I am it -- it is I

Can you see my body
Can you see it grow
Do you see it throbbing
Please - God - no...

Can you hear the thunder?
Can you hear the thunder?
Can you hear the thunder?
Can you hear the thunder?

See my body, see it grow
See it throbbing, please god no
See the haunter, watch it fly
Membranes pushing to the sky
See my body, see it grow
See it throbbing, please god no
Cross my heart and hope to fly
Stick an insect of Shaggai

21 - Walking On The Moon
Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon
I hope my legs don't break
Walking on the moon
We could walk forever
Walking on the moon
We could sleep together
Walking on the moon

Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
Feet don't hardly touch the ground
Walking on the moon
Feet don't hardly make no sound
Walking on, walking on the moon

Some may say
I'm wishing my days away
No way
And if it's the price I pay
Some say
Tomorrow's another day
To stay
I may as well play

Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
Feet don't hardly touch the ground
Walking on the moon
Feet don't hardly make no sound
Walking on, walking on the moon

Some may say
I'm wishing my days away
No way
And if it's the price I pay
Some say
Tomorrow's another day
To stay
I may as well play

22 - Six-Gun Gorgon Dynamo
Sesqua Valley's singing out my name
I'll pass on that if it's all the same
She's one of the Million Favoured Ones
She's the Black Goat with a Thousand Young

She's the six-gun Gorgon dynamo
She's primed up and all Geronimo
Start that meteoric neutron hail
Nine point million on the Richter scale

If you want Nirvanimetric bliss
Chrono-Omnitemporalysis
Help me break my amniotic shell
Damn this blasted bifid barb of Hell

Shake the paw of Mighty Metraton
Cutting corners to oblivion
All the Hyperspatial seams are sealed
Thanks to me and my disruption field

Sesqua Valley's singing out my name
I'll pass on that if its all the same
She's one of the Million Favoured Ones
She's the Black Goat with a Thousand Young

She's the six-gun Gorgon dynamo
Inbetween the spaces that we know
Taking seriously what it said
Let it go or you might end up dead
