Satan Gave Me A Taco – Beck – Video and Lyrics

If you ever run into Satan, it is very important that you do not take anything from him.

Just look what happened to Beck.

Satan Gave Me A Taco – Lyrics


Satan gave me a taco and it made me really sick
The chicken was all raw and the grease was mighty thick
The rice was all rancid and the beans were so hard
I was gettin’ kinda dizzy eatin’ all the lard
There was aphids on the lettuce an’ I ate every one
An’ after I was done the salsa melted off my tongue
Pieces of tortilla got stuck in my throat
An’ the stains on my clothes burned a hole through my coat
My stomach was a-tremblin’ and I broke out in a rash
I was so dry and thirsty and I didn’t have no cash
So I went and found a hose, tore off all my clothes
Turned on the water and it shot right up my nose
Some old lady came along and she thought I was a freak
So she beat me with a handbag till I could hardly speak
I was lying there naked, my body badly bruised
In a pool of my own blood, unconscious and confused
Well, the cops came and got me and threw me in their van
And I woke up on the ceiling and I couldn’t find my hand
They took me to the judge, his eyes a-glowin’ red
The courtroom was filled with witches and the dead
Well, the sheriff was a hellhound with fangs and claws
The prisoners were tied up and chained to the walls
The air was gettin’ thick; the smoke was gettin’ thicker
The judge read the verdict: said, “Cut off his head!”
Well, they placed me on the altar, and they raised up the axe
My head was about to explode when I noticed the Marshall stacks
I noticed all the smoke machines, cameras and the lights
Some guy with a microphone, runnin’ around dancin’ in tights
And I noticed the crew and the band playin’ down below
And I realized I was in a rock videoSo I went and joined the band and I went out on tour
And I smoked a lot of heroin and I passed out in manure
I made out with the groupies, started fires backstage
I made a lot of money and I gave it all away
Well, the band got killed, so I started a solo career
And I won all the awards and I drank all the beer
I opened up a taco stand just to smell the smell
Cookin’ with the devil; frying down in hell

(spoken)
Today’s ah-August 4, 1982; i’m really bored
There was some dead animals we played with
There was a weed whacker, we stole two of them
A cop car was on fire
My friend scott, he was running and he slipped on a twinky
And his nose was covered with blood
Security helicopter shot a spotlight
Somebody pulled their pants down

Beck – Heaven Hammer – Missing – Lyrics and Video – Air Remix

This song popped up on my iTunes today, I was thoroughly enjoying it, so I thought I would share it with all of you here.

Beck’s songs are not always uplifting, think of “Loser“, but they are usually all very interesting. Though this song’s lyrics are a little bit of a downer, the music and rhythm seem very positive at the same time, leaving you just about as happy when your done, as when you started…

Beck’s Heaven Hammer – Missing – Remix By Air

Beck – Heaven Hammer – Missing Lyrics

I prayed Heaven today
Bring its hammer down on me
And pound you out of my head
I can’t think with you in it

I dragged all that I owned
Down the dirt road to find you
My shoes worn out and used
They can’t take me much farther

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there’s something missing

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there’s something missing

She rides in a car, like a queen on a card
And the guns of her mind, aim a line straight at mine
To a heart that was broke, tried to feel but got choked
In the smoke of a desert, a beach with no treasure

A night that’s so blue, feed the aching in you
And the background birds, take a flight from the earth
Where the bonfire burns and the night current turns
On a lifeboat floating, down a river of sleep

I can’t see her hollow eyes
I’m walkin’ along with my boots full of rocks
I can’t believe these tears were mine
I’ll give them to you to keep away in a box

I’ll give them to you to keep away in a box
I’ll give them to you to keep away in a box
I’ll give them to you to keep away in a box

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there’s something missing

Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something

Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something
