I was hooked to a machine
Just to keep my mouth from spouting junk

  • I never noticed the disturbing lyrics while I was racing around Vice City on a PCJ with cops on my tail.
  • Nice with headphones, so is this one,
  • Oh my bones....
  • Absolutely BRILLIANT!
  • the dirty rhythm
  • I could listen to this all day.
  • Colossally underrated artist.
  • its a shame that Dolby is mainly known for 'She Blinded Me With Science' because he had some other quality tracks. like this one!
  • When I hear this song, I get the urge to play a trombone using my nose.
