Educated Horses [2006]

Educated Horses is the third solo album from Rob Zombie. Released 5 years after The Sinister Urge, it came out after Zombie had spent time cultivating his career as a film director. Previous to the release of this album Zombie had expressed that he may not have been returning to music but it was playing with guitarist John 5, who had now joined the band, that Zombie was inclined to put together another album.

As well as bringing in John 5, Zombie also introduced drummer Tommy Clufetos. However, on the recording of the album, some drum parts were again put together by Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee. Educated Horses would be the last to feature bassist Blasko.

Released on March 28, 2006, Educated Horses hit the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart at number one. It also debuted at number 5 on the Billboard 200 charts.

Four videos were made and released for the album. These included the Rob Zombie directed Foxy Foxy, and American Witch as well as animated contributions by David Hartman for The Lords of Salem, and American Witch.

The Lords of Salem would receive a Grammy Nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance of 2008.

Title Length Lyrics Listen*
1 Sawdust in the Blood 01:22
Instrumental
2 American Witch 03:47
Body of a monkey and the feet of a cock
Dragged from her home on the killing rock
Black dog dying on the weather vain
The Devil’s in a cat and the baby’s brain[Chorus]
The End – The End of The American
The End – The End of The American
The End – The End of The American
The End – The End of The American WitchAlone on the hill and ready to die
Cancers of darkness – a blackened eye
The mark of the wolf and the sign of the calf
Angels bleed down above the raftWe all pray for 20 innocents
We all bow down 20 innocents
We all hang high 20 innocents
We all accused 20 innocents[Chorus]Do you want to know where their dreams come from?
Some showed their faith and some showed noneWe all pray for 20 innocents
We all bow down 20 innocents
We all hang high 20 innocents
We all accused 20 innocentsThe End – The End of The American
The End – The End of The American
The End – The End of The AmericanDo you want to know where their dreams come from?
Some showed their faith and some showed noneThe End – The End of The American Witch
3 Foxy Foxy 03:28
He who gets slapped and he who gets saved

She wants the air
She hides the scars under her hairDon’t you wanna ride it?

5 The Scorpion Bleeds 03:38
Yeah
YeahMidnight candy four cups of coffee
I ate my breakfast with a side of eggs
I saw something in the jungle
Low in gear – black mudd on my legsShe was something stretch before me
Her arms into wings into pillbox heads
Can the side show – wherever you go
Two naked figures in my breathCan you see it?
If you feel it
The Scorpion Sleeps right in my hand
A poison dealer
An evil wheeler
How can I make you understand?Yeah alright – Said it’s alright – Yeah alrightA blue light shindig – Well I’m addicted
Killing black kettle is what they saw
I feel like something in the congo
Dead were the women not the warriorsLast great road show – A canvas tilt go
Arms into wings into pillbox heads
Creep the high-go and keep the down low
Into the mind of a melting manCan you see it?
If you feel it
The Scorpion Sleeps right in my hand
A poison dealer
An evil wheeler
How can I make you understand?Yeah alright – Said it’s alright – Yeah alrightCan you see it?
If you feel it
The Scorpion Sleeps right in my hand
A poison dealer
An evil wheeler
How can I make you understand?Yeah alright – Said it’s alright – Yeah alright

8 Death of it All 04:22
See the famous lung girl
They call her Helen Lyle
Life’s a respirator when you got the sinner styleShe float out on the midway
She wrangle at the show
Life’s a revelation wherever you go(Chorus)
Together we fly
Together we fall
Together we all see
The Death Of It AllSee what’s in the trailer
Count up all the holes
Bullets and the movies never tell the wholeNow Clyde was a lover
And Bonnie was a queen
They set their sights for Texas and never left the scene(Chorus)
See the horrifying
Beast behind the bars
Watch the transformation the monster is a starOut steps a beauty
Now watch her walk away
Another grand illusion if you wanna pay(Chorus x2)
9 Ride 03:32
(It has no motives, No limits, It can’t hurt, Can it? See what it is.)I tried to see the one that’s free
Now it’s gone

Move along
I tried to feel the one that’s real
Is it wrong?
I tried to take to one that makes

Distant kings surrounding, baby
Imitation of life, babyRIDE!
Dirty, sweet, and filthy

10 The Devil’s Rejects 03:54
I am the bad one
Distant and cruel one
I am the dream that
Keeps you running downWith distraction
Violent reaction
Scars of my actions
Watch me running outHell doesn’t want them
Hell doesn’t need them
Hell doesn’t love them
The Devil’s rejects
The Devil’s rejectsYeah, I am the brains
Some say insane
Blood is the rain
That’s what life’s aboutIn the great wide
Head split and tongue tied
Watch the sun die
When you’re running outHell doesn’t want them
Hell doesn’t need them
Hell doesn’t love them
The Devil’s rejects
The Devil’s rejectsYeah I am the knuckle
Bow down and buckle
Hold your breath
Your world is running downLive for the family
Die with the family
All is the family
My gun is running outHell doesn’t want them
Hell doesn’t need them
Hell doesn’t love them
This world rejects them
This world rejects them
This world rejects them
This world rejects them
The Devil’s rejects
The Devil’s rejects
11 The Lords of Salem 04:13
I speak the truth
I dare not tell a lie
One child is in fits
The other child dies
Now the yellow bird sits upon her finger
The yellow bird a specter lost to lingerGod hates the Lords of Salem
No one can ever save them
God hates the Lords of Salem
No one can destroy themDo you think they suffered
Up on Gallows Hill?
Burn me and hang me
And I always will
Tumble like a swine
A victim of the fury
Glory to the saint
Before you start to buryGod hates the Lords of Salem
No one can ever save them
God hates the Lords of Salem
No one can destroy themGod hates the Lords of Salem
No one can ever save them
God hates the Lords of Salem
No one can destroy them
