<p>A crack developed and a name blew in,
Billy Gnosis, weak and thin.
He moved to California to start a new life,
Because back in his hometown he just killed his wife.

He started drinking every back then,
He started eating things that made his head spin,
And his brain became a battery,
From making chemicals that shouldn't be.

Oh, Billy couldn't remember his name,
Billy Gnosis was going insane.
And soaked in blue light he played and played,
I can still hear the sound he made...

Billy burned his phone and blew up his car,
He sat and watched TV and played the guitar
And read a book that made his head dim;
How could he have known that there were worms within?

And the worms ate into his brain,
Through his eyes and through his ears they came.
They made a home so they could multiply
And feed on Billy's chemicals in paradise.

Oh, Billy couldn't remember his name,
Our lonesome hero was going insane.
And soaked in blue light he played and played,
I can still hear the sound he made...
