Okay this is a song about killing everybody, let's all sing along now

Dream machine,
John and exene,
Smear campaign,
And a swat team.

Let's have a feudal lord,
Let's have a fascist regime,
Side effects,
Coupled with withdrawl bleeding.

This is a riot, right?
Let's all riot riot,
Let's tear this place to shit,
Commit pact suicide.

(you know you all want it, now let's all kill ourselves)
Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill.

Put your hand to my mouth,
And a gun to my head,
Let's stop this false pretence,
Become real friends.

Let's have a mustard gas war,
Because a fuck's a fuck,
Richter scale madness,
Join the gun club, join the gun club.

    General CommentI remember when I saw them live, there was this:
    "can you say kill?"
    audience: KILL!
    "can you say kiss?"
    audience: KISS!
    "so let's kiss and kill!"

    Mayhem... hehe

    General CommentI may be wrong, but before the "kill kill kill" part, doesn't Conrad say something like "1995, one more year I'll die" or something that sounds like that?

    General CommentOh, and I love this song because I feel like it purposefully takes that whole 'rock-music-is-evil' stereotype to another level. Its just so blatant, it beats you over the head with the idea. Perfect way to start out their first album.
