"Chainsaw Charlie (murders In The New Morgue)" as written by and Steve Edward Duren....
O.K. boy now here's your deal
Will you gamble your life?
Sign right here on the dotted line
It's the one you've waited for all of your life

Ah - will it feed my hunger
If I swallow lies right down my throat?
Or will it choke me till I'm raw?
And tomorrow when I'm gone
Will they whore my image on?
I'll will my throne away, to a virgin heir and Charlie's slave

Murders, murders in the new morgue
Murders, murders in the new morgue
See old Charlie and the platinum armys
Making me their boy
Murders, murders in the new morgue
Murders, murders in the new morgue
He'll make ya scream for the cash machine
Down in Chainsaw Charlie's morgue

We'll sell your flesh by the pound you'll go
A whore of wrath just like me
We'll sell ya wholesale, we'll sell your soul
Strap on your sixstring and feed our machine

Ah - will it feed my hunger
If I swallow lies right down my throat?
Or will it choke me till I'm raw?
And tomorrow when I'm gone
Will they whore my image on?
I'll will my throne away, to a virgin heir and Charlie's slave

Welcome to the morgue boy
Where the music comes to die
Welcome to the morgue son
I'll cut your throat just to stay alive
Ah, trust me boy
I won't steer you wrong
If you trust me son
You won't last very long

I'm the president of showbiz, my name is Charlie
I'm a cocksucking asshole, that's what they call me
Here from my Hollywood tower I rule
I'm lying motherfucker, the chainsaw's my tool
The new morgue's our factory, to grease our lies
Our machine is hungry, it needs your life
Don't mind the faggots, and the ruthless scum
Before we're done, son we'll make you one
I'm the tin man, I've never had a heart
I'm the tin man, But I'll make you a star
I'm the tin man, I've never had a heart
I'm the tin man, but i'll make me the star

    General CommentIts when Jonathan meets Charlie in the story of the Crimson Idol. Charlie is basically telling Jonathan to trade in his soul so that he could become a huge rockstar.

    General CommentThis song is about the cold hearted record executive who signs up young artists just to make as much money as he can from them and when the artists suffer from burnout, they're thrown away and a new young artist is to replace him as the money maker for the greedy executives.

    General CommentOne of the most epic songs off of The Crimson Idol. The song is an ensuing conversation between Jonathon, a young runaway looking to make a name for himself in the music world, and Chainsaw Charlie, a bastard of a record producer who aims to sell Jonathon for all he's worth. In the conversation, Charlie outlines his plans for Jonathon, along with how his system works. Jonathon goes on to ask "Will this be worth it? Will I hate myself for what I'll become? Or will it be everything I dreamed of?"
    Fucking epic song off an amazing concept album.
