Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro (x2)
---> Play Riff 1 over:
Nick:
  Talkin *** like shut up and listen to me
  Because cutting through the crap is my specialty
  Like a bomb I'm dropping yes a ton of lead
  You're trying to figure out the last thing that I said
---> Play Riff 2 over:
Nick:
  I'm a redwood I'd love to be a tree
  Yes I'm a druid
  My words are flowing out like a fluid
  Never give in never conform
  I'll be busting out rhymes in a triplet form
---> Play Riff 1 over:
SA:
  Dead leaves on the trees in spring
  Can't hear the birds sing
  A light powdered snow on the ground is glistening
  Vipers slither atop a colder ground they quiver
---> Play Riff 2 over:
SA:
  A crack in the sky snow is falling and inside we shiver
  With a brownskin friend claiming kin to Crazy Horse
  I stink of veno my greasy clothes are rancid
  But I tip the bottle back the spirits are in me kid
---> Play Chorus over:
Nick & SA:
  Firewater - Call it liquid rapture
  Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature
  Firewater - The world's a mixture
  Of broken liquored people get the picture
  Firewater - Call it liquid rapture (Nick repeating "firewater")
  Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature
  Firewater - The world's a mixture
  Of broken liquored people get the picture
---> Play Riff 1 over:
SA (?):
   Whiskey be spittle at the corners of my mouth
   I'm rather liquored a light flickers I got the shakes and jitters
   I roll I'm like Raging Bull bumrushing the snow
   Hand to my head sway in the fire I've waded into
---> Play Riff 2 over:
SA (?):
   All alone except the whiskey voices
   Whores laugh neon signs flash other choices
   I stagger stumble to toast the past while I mumble
   Slur my song slow porno show marquee words crumble
---> Play Chorus over:
Nick & SA:
  Firewater - Call it liquid rapture
  Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature
  Firewater - The world's a mixture
  Of broken liquored people get the picture
  Firewater - Call it liquid rapture (Nick repeating "firewater")
  Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature
  Firewater - The world's a mixture
  Of broken liquored people get the picture
---> Play Ending over:
Nick:
  You're hanging around the house with all your friends steady drinking
  Smokin the green weed and your head is sorta blinkin
  You're going with the flow and everybody's getting plowed
  And the voices and the music and the noise is getting loud
  You've got a heavy buzz on when seven o clock rolls around
  So you pile into the clunker and start heading downtown
  Only nineteen but you know where you can get it
  So you slide inside the bar and everything is hitting
  By about eleven o'clock your brain is near dead
  You really cant remember who was the one that said
  "Let's go in the bathroom, and meet this guy Chuck
  He's got a thirty dollar white powder pick-me-up."
  Ten minutes later the whole vibe has changed
  You try for conversation but you know you're acting strange
  Your eyes are wide open but your smile is gone
  You just keep fiending till the ***ing break of dawn
