Life in prison! Is it enough
For what they do?
One day soon, so very close
It could be you
A life for a life, that's the way
The only way I say
The chair is best, oh so sweet
The power's all we pay

The power's all we pay
We'll end it all today
The power's all we'll pay

Thirty years is what they do
Less if they are good
All this time we pay their way
'Cos goodies say we should
Then they're out, they're on the loose
To do it once again
Back in they go, the more we pay
We say they are insane

They say they are insane
Blown right out of their minds
Really gone insane.

The people's vote it should be cast
The murderers would not last
Eject the filth from my lifestyle
Keep them just on file

To take a life it is a shame
With only themselves to blame
Death should be the penalty
Quick and cold and finally yeah

Give them food and beds they say
The people they will pay
Treat them good and talk to them
Teach them how to pray
Does it work, of course not
We'll end it all today
As I said let's have a vote
Let them know our way

Let them know our way
We'll execute today
The power's all we'll pay

How many victims unlawfully killed upon this earth
Homicidal killers?
Can you tell me what they're worth?
They never give a reason,
they never tell you why
We'll save their souls,
take their lives,
Let them die
Oh let them die

Oh let them die
