about

(Recorded August 1976) A raw garage drum beat lays the groundwork for wild 1950's rock 'n' roll piano mixed with splashes of progressive jazz, lyrically featuring the invitation to those who are persecuted and physically harmed to find solace in Skafish's home.

lyrics

They Give You Bad Feelings

They give you bad feelings
Just keep punchin’ and pokin’ you
They trip you and you fall
They grab your dime
There’s on one to call

If you’re all inhibited up ready to explode
I’ll let you scream and yell in my home
In - in my home - in my home

They will give you the old one-two
and as they pulverize you
Then they smash you
and knock your block off
You’re bloody black and blue
There’s nothing to do

If you’re all inhibited up ready to explode
I’ll let you scream and yell in my home
In - in my home - in my home

After they leave to find a new one
You work and grow old
Embedded memories on your heart
You almost fall apart
Those bad days don’t seem to go

If you’re all inhibited up ready to explode
I’ll let you scream and yell in my home
In - in my home – in my home

Just walk right in…
