Melvins - The Man With The Laughing Hand Is Dead Lyrics




When his hand began laughing, it was Johnny open wide
The riddle still unsolved, smoke rings subside
Untied, unravelled, unthought, unsaid
The man with the laughing hand is dead

Shaking under Pedro's head, train-crushed legs and arms
Wicked, wicked hero, little wiggle arms
His shoes are desterted, the box is all alone
No voice is perverted by tuxedo or 'phone
Untied, unravelled, unthought, unsaid
The man with the laughing hand is dead.

Melvins The Man With The Laughing Hand Is Dead Comments
  1. Charlie Potter

    I'm a long-time Melvins fan and this is one of my favourite Melvins songs. I've always been so blown away by it and have thought I should check out some other Bliss Blood stuff. Whenever I have I've been a bit disappointed though. Does anyone have any recommendations? It would be amazing if there was some more slow boggy stuff like this.

  2. Jules Treasure

    That Bassline sounds like it was influenced from the Throbbing gristle vol. 3 Cassette.

  3. mikebaal

    No, this is and A History Of Bad Men are later versions of Night Goat.

  4. nakenkaffe

    They reuse riffs often

  5. Harry Clark

    This song is an older version, they must have just liked the riff, sped it up for history of bad men

  6. Nightgoat23

    @dommer117 Not necessarily, they just reused the riff pretty much

  7. 70moparbaby

    such a great song
