"Under The Blade" as written by and Daniel Dee Snider....
A glint of steel, a flash of light
You know you're not going home tonight
Be it jack or switch, doctor's or mind
Nowhere to run, everywhere you'll find

You can't escape
From the bed you've made
When your time has come
You'll accept the blade

You're cornered in the alley way
You know you're all alone
You know it's gonna end this way
The chill goes to the bone

Now here it comes that glistening light
It goes into your side
Blackness comes, tonight's the night
Blade is gonna ride
'Cause you're under the blade, ohh
You're under the blade

It's not another party head
This time you cannot rise
Your hands are tied, your legs are strapped
A light shines in your eyes

You faintly see a razor's edge
You open your mouth to cry
You know you can't, it's over now
The blade is gonna ride
'Cause you're under the blade, ohh
You're under the blade

A glint of steel, a flash of light
You know you're not going home tonight
Be it jack or switch, doctor's or mind
There's nowhere to run, everywhere you'll find

You can't escape
From the bed you've made
When your time has come
You'll accept the blade

You've tried to make it to the front
You're pinned against the side
A monster stands before you now
It's mouth is open wide

The lights go on, the night explodes
It tears into your mind
When the night does end, you'll come again
The blade is gonna ride
'Cause you're under the blade, ohh
You're under the blade

Here it comes, baby, aow, whoa
Oh, you're under it
You're goin' down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down
Hey, hey

    General CommentIt's about surgery and the fear it instills in people, even Dee Snider said so.

    General CommentThis song is about sadomasachism and bondage! haha. just kidding. stupid P.M.R.C.! it's obviously about surgery and fear that goes with it, possibly the fear of waking up during surgery.

    General CommentYa, it's about one of the guitarists' throat operation. I'm not sure which one.

    General CommentI think it's not about plastic surgery. I beleive that Dee Snider just said that to look good in court, and to make Tipper Gore look like a dumbass in front of the judges. The thing is, he was so eloquent and such a skillful politician, that everyone believed him; even I for a while.
