Purple Stain Lyrics

To finger paint is not a sin
I put my middle finger in
Your monthly blood is what I win
Im in your house now let me spin
Python power straight from monty
Celluloid loves got a john frusciante
Spread your head and spread the blanket

    Yeah, you guys are right and most of it's about fingering a girl on her period, but towards the end, "We all live in Hollywood with Dracula" means that in Hollywood they are like vampires and use people's talents for their own misdeeds. Like tell me baby.

    It's about fingering a girl on her period and how beautiful said period is.
    "To finger paint is not a sin" - it's natural to be on your period and love.
    "I put my middle finger in." - you know.

    Dracula and Darla Hood are mentioned, Dracula sucks blood and Darla Hood died of a blood disease.

    Tribute to the Free M@$ons you dimwits. Outside a couple of references that have to do with nothing.

    It's all about a vision he got about a girl he fingered. And all this song is frictional and badly inspired. But in the end he admit it:we all live in Holywood it's only a film he got in a vision nothing real.

    its about all of that (besides the dracula misunderstood crap) and the "girl" is a girl that had died her hair black and it left a purple stain on his pillow. (purple stain on my pillow). this comes from anthony himself

    with dracual and darla hood
    unspoken words were understood.

    "thatguy" is an idiot.
    all kedis means to say is that they were two characters from silent film before there were "talkies"

    i would say it's about a skeet stain left on a bedsheet after sex and the purple part is like seeing it under a blacklight.
