I was down in Georgia 
Nothing was as real 
As the street beneath my feet 
Descending into air 

The cauldron was a-bubbling 
The flesh was lean 
And the women moved forward 
Like piranhas in a stream 
They spread themselves before me 
An offering so sweet 
And they beckoned and they beckoned 
Come on darling eat 

Eat the summer cannibals 
Eat eat eat 
You eat the summer cannibals 
Eat eat eat 

They circled around me 
Natives in a ring 
And I saw their souls a-withering 
Like snakes in chains 
And they wrapped themselves around me 
Ummm what a treat 
And they rattled their tales hissin' 
Come on let's eat 

Eat the summer cannibals 
Eat eat eat 
You eat the summer cannibals 
Eat eat eat 

I felt a rising in my throat 
The girls a-saying grace 
And the air the viscous air 
Pressed against my face 
And it all got too damn much for me 
Just got too damn rough 
And I pushed away my plate 
And said boys I've had enough 
And I laid upon the table 
Another piece of meat 
And I opened up my veins to them 
And said come on eat 

Eat the summer cannibals 
Eat eat eat 
You eat the summer cannibals 
Eat eat eat 
You eat the summer cannibals 
Eat eat eat 
You eat the summer cannibals 
Eat eat eat 

'Cause I was down in Georgia 
Nothing was as real 
As the street beneath my feet 
Descending into hell 

So eat eat eat 
You eat eat eat 
You eat eat eat 
Eat eat eat
