The Mommyheads have been around since the good old 90′s but like many talented bands never really made it to the top. Here’s an awesome song that proves they deserve much more attention:

There’s a fire in the barn

And it’s not a false alarm

A dog was chasing its tail

And it knocked a candle on top of a gas can

That I was holding in my hand

And the flames began to dance

That’s how it all began.

Well, he comes in the room

And he says he’s gonna save

There’s a look in his eyes

He’s a ticket to my grave

The things that I have done

Things that I have yet to do

This is news to me

Is this news to you?

The devil’s grinning

My soul’s spinning

In your washing machine

I wash my face

I wash my hands

But I can’t get myself clean.

So I run in the woods

But he is chasing me right behind

With my dog in his arms

And poison on his mind

I ask to make a trade

You give me back my dog

And you can take my soul

And that’s how I paid my toll.

The devil’s grinning

My soul’s spinning

In your washing machine

I wash my face

I wash my hands

But I can’t get myself clean.

There’s a fire in the barn

And it’s not a false alarm

The devil’s grinning

My soul’s spinning

In your washing machine.
