The Black Ice Cream Song is the fourth song on the album Zopilote Machine.


And the heat came down
And the heat came down
I knew I was living in a long, long dream
when you fed me the black ice cream

And the heat rose up
And the heat rose up
I heard the loud loud buzzing of our son's go-kart
And the ice cream was blacker than the devil's heart
It was August the 19th, 1957
I fixed my eyes on you, fixed my eyes on you
