lyrics

He’s a madman in plaid flannel.
They say he roams the forest,
bearded like Sasquatch,
still wearing his reflective safety vest and camouflaged cap.
They say you can recognize him
from the blood splatter on the plastic.

He moves from kill to kill,
feeding off the men he slays
and stealing their ammo for the next time.
The cops hunt the hunter,
but all they find are body parts
strewn in his wake.

Sometimes limbs smoldering in campfires.
Other times, heads
with gnawed necks
lopsided on the ground
with hollowed out holes
where he sucked the eyes
and tongue meat right out.

He’s a madman in plaid flannel.

During their nightly camps,
the posse trades rumors
about what might have
triggered the psycho hunter’s madness.
One sheriff speculates
that the crazy man plumb forgot
to bring his brain medication
with him to the woods—that simple.
Another ponders whether
he might be possessed by Indian spirits.
Another thinks
he’s the bastard son of the Son of Sam.
But I know the truth:
a bullet grazed his skull
and that was all it took
to set this guy off.

He’s a madman in plaid flannel.

And I know that as he tears through the flesh
of all these woodland campers,
the only thing he’s hunting for is me.
For revenge.
They say it’s not good sport to shoot a wounded animal,
unless you’re putting it out of its misery.
So I can’t wait until we find him.

He’s a madman in plaid flannel.
They say he roams the forest,
bearded like Sasquatch,
still wearing his reflective safety vest and camouflaged cap.
They say you can recognize him from the blood splatter on the plastic.

He’s a madman in plaid flannel.
