This is a song about some guys Steve Albini knew from Montana, who liked watching cows get slaughtered. (FOR COW-SONA's PLEASE LOOK AWAY!)

They'd sneak into the abbotoir and watch the cows get cables drilled through their noses and then get dragged into the stall where the compression hammer would crush their skulls. These guys would watch it for hours on end like it was a movie. A song about warped life in small towns. Another song about the dark side of American Culture.

Lyrics:

I don't know why we come here
Guess I just needed the bang
We walk in the beef, and then we pull on the rope
And then the, then the hammer comes down

Cables!
Cables!
Cables!

So I guess they know
I'm not no company man
But I can pull on a rope, I can kill a cow
Fast as any other fucker can

Cables!
Cables!
Cables!
