    I don't know, I have Act of Love boot, a strange mix of PJ and NY song, plus, it was on my 20th birthday anniversary, Nov 3rd, but it indeed have many unusual songs for a show, even at the time, and i find eddie's vocals wasn't with as much gibberish as you say, but he was calm, and his voice had a soothing effect, ... one of the greatest daughters tag ever...
    ... I am not in the business of being liked anymore ...

    I really don't find this show weird at all; I think it kicked some major ass!!! I still remember listening to this show. Blood was freaking awesome. And the doughnut line is a reference to president Kennedy.b

    If you're talking about the gibberish Eddie says before Immortality, it's from the Barnum musical:

    The Museum Song

    Quite a lotta Roman terra cotta
    Livin' lava from the flanks of Etna
    Statuary, Ride a dromedary
    See the temple tumble and the Red Sea part

    Macnamara's band, the fattest lady in the land
    A pickled prehistoric hand
    A strand of Pocahontas' hair
    Crow and Sioux who're goin'
    to be showin' you some rowin'
    Through a model of the rapids on the Delaware

    Armadillas, clever caterpillars
    Reproductions of the cyclop's ret'na
    Crystal blowin', automatic sewin'
    Venus on a shell and other works of art

    Educated fleas, a tribe of Aborigines
    Two ladies joined across the knees
    The Mona Lisa made of ice
    Hottentots we've gotten in forgotten spots
    a cotton gin
    a night with Lot in Sodom
    Better see that twice!

    One iguana, snakes and other fauna
    Got no bearded lady, but we're get'na
    When you duck out, take another buck out
    Run around the block and see a
    Run around the block and see a
    Run around the block and see a new show start!
