Butthole Surfers - The Colored FBI Guy Lyrics




I don't know just how it started
We got covered up of the sky
his body and his mind have parted
you can see it happen in his eyes
I don't know just what they're for
cones and rods and bars and arrows
dots and dashing eyes that roll
right into sight and out,
out of control

I don't know just what they're there for
flashing lights in passing mirrors
dashing eyes with dots that roll
right in my mouth and out,
out of control

I don't know just how it happened
there was glass in from of the sky
my body and my face got shattered
I hope I'm together when I die

  1. Weeb Beater

    Do you ever take a shit and when you go to wipe it feels like liquid and you pull your hand back in fear of getting liquid shit on your hand, that just now happened to me

  2. Rick Tripp

    The surfers rule

  3. downallyourstreets

    The wallmart logo reminds me of this record cover, 😂

  4. pigGRAY

    From when the surfers started to when the released Pepper, their sound matured from psycodelic punk to psycodelic folk. Amazing

  5. Drew A

    So it's like buttholes that surf, or surfers but instead of waves they surf the sphincter seas? I don't k

  11. David Om

    Try slowing it down to .75 speed and crank it, your mind will surely depart. Back in the day I copied it to tape Too slow and thought it was suppose to be that way my entire life.

    firefly87

    Manuel Bucci Riedel

    rather be a sailor than a fighter

  14. PrankZabba

    one of their most beautiful songs ever recorded

    Scott Allen

    x-ray of a girl passing gas is a really nice one, too.

  20. Topher Mars

    I dont know what id ever do without the surfers

  21. fictitiousarts

    One of the great MKUltra experimental songs - even better than mmmmmbop!

  22. ta2fiend69

    thanks to my buddy scott who turned me on to the Buttholes back in 1990. he forced widowermaker on me and i haven't looked back since!

    scott hupertz

    hmmm....I hope it was me....I remember not being able to shut the hell up about these guys during my acid gnawing days (daze)...my friends hated me for it

  23. Zanix

    That's the British version of the WidowerMaker (1404 was a reference to the address of the house they lived at around that time), I think. It's called 'The Colored FBI Guy' on the American version. The track listing is also quite different; with 'Helicopter' being at the start instead of the end.

  24. Tona

    Wasnt this called 1401?

  25. Rainface Atriarch

    no worries, fellow, They'll have all their own weird shit and trippy lives that will provide them with plenty of issues to get old and grumpy about when they watch other people grow up. It's awesome. It's like a cycle that never ends!

  26. John Doe

    Just realized the lyrics are about being high, and i've been listening to this album for years -.-

  27. t .byrne

    always loved this

  28. Simoin Atkinson

    all ways loved this tune.

  29. Malcolm Wolfe

    most bands from 90-->now, you can pretty-much just lump into either 1 Surfers song or record.

  30. Barry Oneal

    @ Gr8trEliminatr ....going to concerts back in the 70s was an EXPERIENCE. Nothing like today, some of my best memories, Billy Preston, Nazareth, Deep Purple, Robin Trower, Heart, Rare Earth, the list goes on,

  31. Gr8trEliminatr

    @turkeypantz Indeed, I also envy the older generation to actually witness the music and concerts.
    A totally different world.
    Yet it's great to hear story's about the "ol' days".

  32. Howard Dumas

    @turkeypantz thats the same way I heard it ...how funny same year too... yet I never new until today whom sung this

  33. THE MONGREL KING

    transcendental beauty

  34. turkeypantz

    first heard this on a copy of a copy of a copy of a cassette, in 1991. I envy that today's youth can get any music so easily, from the internet. But I feel bad that they can never know the feeling, of the right-of-passage, in acquiring "hard to find" music like this song was for me.

    Manic 2323

    Truth...

  35. TRBNGR666

    @ThePharmakia lol I loved that movie! these kind of movies got such a boost from IFC channel.

  36. KBNoyes

    Reminds me of San Fransisco in the late '80's What a great time that was for me.

  37. Roderick Walt

    remywood81...me too...that was a great flick wasn't it?

  38. jajadofickaganga

    there was glass in front of the sky.

  39. remywood81

    First heard this in Richard Linklater's Slacker.

  40. Alex Reilly

    His body and his mind had parted. You could see it happen in his eyes.

  41. Whootrider

    dots that roll right in and ouuuuuuuut of control.

  42. PistolWhipYourParents

    Yeah! My favorite song by them.
