Halloween On The Barbary Coast

Nathan Robert's quote from The Flaming Lips Trading Post interview:

"After being escorted out of Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas because 'we stunk' (literally) we were walking to the Barbary Coast Casino and encountered a picket line of striking Barbary Coast employees. One guy had a megaphone and as we approached he started cursing at us about how 'it’s un-American to cross a picket line.' As we passed he started screaming, 'Look everybody…it’s Halloween at the Barbary Coast!'


Well, the retards laughed
When the evening came
The librium makes them
All the same
And boy, you still got
Shit for brains
It's Halloween on the coast again

Well the clowns roll in
And the line never ends
We get the last part
We get the bends
And the bends always last
Until the blast
And sucked us down in the hole again

And it's Halloween on the Barbary Coast, uh huh

Ahhh
Ahhh

Well, the mothers smiled
When the morning came
Under the Christmas tree
They looked all the same
And boy, you still got
Shit for brains
And it's Halloween all over again

And it's Halloween on the Barbary Coast
And it's Halloween on the Barbary Coast, uh huh

Ahhh
Ahhh
