"Beheaded" as written by and Bryan Holland....
Mommy doesn't have a head any more
Keep it underneath my bed on the floor
Well that's alright, that's OK
She never really used her head anyway

Daddy called me a silly bore
Bet he won't say that any more
Because the way his body is severed too
His vocal chords are gonna be hard to use

Beheaded, watch you spurt like a garden hose
Beheaded, bloody mess all over my clothes

Watch my girl friend come to the door
Chop off her head, she falls to the floor
Now watching my baby's jugular flow
Really makes my motor go

Wrap a towel round the bloody stump
Take my baby's body to the city dump
Then wipe the mess off the bloody axe
Scoop all the heads into my burlap sack

Beheaded, watch her spurt like a garden hose
Beheaded, bloody mess all over my clothes

All my collection, adorns my room on bamboo poles
Use to be a little, but a little got more and more
Now I'm craving yours

Night brings bad dreams, bad dreams and guillotines

Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head

Find another victim for my machine
Put him in a home-made guillotine
Blade falls, gonna need a casket
Watch your head plop in a wicker basket

Leave the house at a quarter to four
Come back with sixteen or more
Cause the more I want, the more I see
I got a funny feeling coming over me

Beheaded, watch you spurt like a garden hose
Beheaded, bloody mess all over my clothes

    General CommentHere's the song meaning straight from Dexter:

    Now, this is really going back. Beheaded is a song off of our very first album, so that‘s like 10 years ago! It‘s also the only song off that record that we still play live sometimes.

    I still lived at home back then, and I remember that I wrote the music for that song one night when I was just sitting in my bedroom on my bed with a guitar, being bored. I guess, sometimes, being bored is a good way to make up songs. It was one of those times where I was kind of watching TV, and just kind of strumming my guitar, not really even paying attention to what I was playing, when I just kind of accidentally played some chords that I liked. Pretty soon I had all the music written, but I had to come up with some lyrics.

    This is where James Lilja came in. Now, James was our first drummer, and this was before we even recorded our first record. James is a great guy with a pretty warped sense of humor, and this guy was dying to get into medical school. In fact, he was so intent on getting into medical school that he didn‘t really even practice with us much – which is part of why he‘s not our drummer anymore! But anyway, James and I got together one day and I told him how I was trying to write lyrics for this song.

    I had the idea of calling it “Beheaded,“ and having it be about this crazy guy who enjoys that sort of thing. You know, actually, this kind of song is something that a lot of old punk bands did back then. There‘s tons of songs where the band talks about liking something that‘s gross or sick or whatever, but of course it‘s just a joke. Want some examples? Like, let‘s see, the Dead Kennedys did songs like “Stealing People‘s Mail“ and “I Kill Children.“ Suicidal Tendencies had “I Saw Your Mommy and Your Mommy‘s Dead,“ TSOL had “Code Blue,“ (which was about necrophilia), and D.I. had a song called “I Like Guns.” Of course, these bands didn‘t really advocate these kinds of things – it was just done for shock value, and it was kind of funny too.

    So we decided to make our Beheaded be in that vein, and one afternoon James and I just cracked each other up making up silly lines about beheading people. You can check out the lyrics on another part of this web site.

    Little did I know that day that we‘d still be playing that song ten years later.

    And James? Yes, he got into medical school, and believe it or not, he‘s now a gynecologist! I hope his patients don‘t find out that he once helped write a song called ‘Beheaded‘!

    General CommentThis is part of the Idle Hands soudntrack, i think it was writtin for the movie, because in the movie the main character beheads his parents... at least thats what i think, maybe Dexter had a deeper meaning and we need to look BEYOND the words and pin out symbolism.... or not
