​AIDS & Armageddon

This song is by David Baerwald and appears on the album Triage (1992).

I got six too many fingers and a subatomic coat
Took my baby out to dinner all she wanted was dope
On the way to the abortion she said babies take hope
I said all you wanna do is just sit around and mope

About AIDS and armageddon and armageddon and AIDS
But I don't wanna talk about it
Think I might have got it anyway I just got laid
Armageddon and AIDS

I dream assassination, I hallucinate cash
I'm afraid of my own future, I'm disgusted by my past
I wake up dreaming every morning about some chemical blast
My brain full up of questions that I'm too afraid to ask

I just don't wanna know
About AIDS and armageddon and armageddon and AIDS
But I don't wanna talk about it
Think I might have got it anyway I just got paid
Armageddon and AIDS

O Jesus
O God...

You know when I found her she was hiding from the powers that be
She thought living was dying ungracefully
Our love affair ended the day she tried to kill me
She said "You know you're gonna die"
I said "Yeah, but not yet"

Anyway I wound up in Las Vegas to earn some alimony cash
Earned an honest dollar looking through my neighbor's trash
But these jaded jet set wastrels they kept on pounding on my door
They'd talk about Gandhi and then go looking for some whores

Well, I don't know about you
But I'm gonna make like a snake and shed my skin
Gonna make like a snake and shake it
Gonna make like a snake and shed my skin
Gonna make like a snake and shake it
Baby
