i went to blockhead video
to rent a tape of people makin’ love
couldn’t find no love in here
“it’s a family store, see here!”
i settled for “faces of death”
but they’d rented it to some kid
i’m tired of the same old gore
kick b*tt cable network gives me more
bring the pretzels, bring the kids
have a party, have a beer
phil donahue got his wish
executions on live tv
here’s your host, kozy kinkwicket!
what’s your name?… you’re 14?
and what are you being put to death for today?
is your family here?
what was your last meal?
any last words for the fans?
longer you cling to life-
more prizes for your friends
what’s it gonna be, old sparky?
more points for the firing squad
grand prize, step inside
the hundred thousand dollar gas chamber
answer one question:
how do we teach, ‘thou shalt not kill’?
the gas is rising
there goes the bell
ladies and gentlemen,
he’s swallowed his tongue!
studio audience frenzy
pick me! pick me! pick me!
marie antoinette for a day
lose your head, feed your family
outside picket signs bray
swarms of tailgate parties
big gulping who knows what
all waving flags
that’ll show ’em crime does not pay
i got heaps of these on tape
got clinton frying that brain-damaged kid
and hockey fights for trade
you got gacy? wooooo!
i’ll take ted bundy, too
no worries if the children see
nightmares? blame mtv
