[Prelude]: And now you're going to die, wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

[Voice]: Now you're going to die.

[Voice]: Now you're going to die.

[Voice]: Now you're going to die.

[Voice]: Now you're going to die.

I want to see, show me reality,
Ratings dropping, what to do?
More violence and nudity.

Right wing complaining, fuck 'em if it's entertaining,
They'd be having all the fun if they weren't holding all the guns.

What's this coming to me?
Some kind of notion brewing?
Ceaser, he had something,
I'll be continuing.

How could this be wrong?
Death comes for us all so:

I will kill another motherfucker until the ratings die (x3)
I will kill...

I want to see televised misanthropy,
Ratings dropping, what to do?
More beatings or misogony.
Prisons overcrowding,
fodder for the ever growing -
Crowd pleasing industry,
Unstoppable and ever hungry.

Whats this coming to me?
Some kind of notion brewing?
Ceaser he had something,
I'll be continuing.

How could this be wrong?
Death Comes for us all.

I will kill another motherfucker until the ratings die (x3)
I will kill...

How could this be wrong?
Why don't you blame God?
Indiscriminatly, He kills more than me SO:

I will kill another motherfucker until the ratings die (x3)
I will kill...

You're no one 'til you've died on T...
You're no one 'til you've died on T... V.

    General CommentIncidentally, the title is an obvious reference to the classic arcade game "Smash TV", based on the film "The Running Man" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, which is most simply described as having resembled American Gladiators with guns -- precisely as Bill Hicks would have liked it.
