Top Songs of 2014: Andrew Jackson Jihad - Getting Naked, Playing with Guns


AJJ writes the most outrageous lyrics to, at times very sweet acoustic melodies - in this case this is what got my attention with this track in particular off his latest release, Christmas Island. The common "man" speaks in inferences, as he takes on modern twists happening in the 21st century woe. Fairly linear song that is catapulted to new heights with this playfully depressing look at ourselves and our fall from grace.


Getting naked and playing with guns
there's a gerbil in the microwave, a baseball bat in everyone
sharing kisses and building a bomb
we'll set it off like Microsoft in 94
we'll set it off like Microsoft in 94

McDonald's play place before the xbox
cake frosting sweet talking bedroom wall
covered in knives, touching god, burning shit
we'll make a wish and take a trip to future town like our daddy did
and we'll kill the neighbor kid who only wants to be our friend
his dad is dead enough that his new dad can cure the bends
we'll make a wish and take a trip to future town
feeling weird yet tasting sweet
its a top bottom rock smoking magic mask making it bleed
feeling sweet, getting weird
now I can se the playgorund from the trees
and i can see the playgrond from the trees

and we'll show the neighbor kid what
what our love actually means
he's here from out of town and I heard he's got ADD
we'll climb the tallest branch with a rifle full of dreams
and we'll blow the little dickhead up to smitherines

Getting naked and playing with guns
there's a gerbil in the microwave, a baseball bat in everyone
sharing kisses and building a bomb
we'll set it off like microsoft in 94
we'll set it off like Microsoft in 94 in our backyard
