Don't have to tell that life ain't fair
I lost twelve of my very best men in there
Well hold on
Hold on to your curse
This story is depressing and it's gonna get worse

I gotta know what the man on the street thinks
I wanna drink what the man on the beach drinks
Need a security perimeter with venetian blinds
And an emergency meeting of the meeting of the minds

Can't see the forest through the trees
I make my living in American cheese
Bringing everybody to their knees
So have another slice of American cheese
But I know it'd be better
With Gouda or Cheddar

Now there's fifty dead actresses lying in your wake
So have another piece of chicken, have a piece of steak
Well be nice, lover be nice to me
Cause there's an evil army coming that we just can't see

I gotta feel everything that I can feel
I gotta steal when I went with the meal deal
I gotta bless their heart and forgive their sins
And pass on my curse to their next of kin

Can't see the forest through the trees
I make my living in American cheese
Bringing everybody to their knees
So have another slice of American cheese
I'm not an Italian fella
But I like Mozzarella

This conversation is just a time killer, time filler
Taking it's toll upon my heart (taking it's toll upon my heart)
This corporation is just a fee biller, seed spinner(?)
Hell bent on tearing us apart (hell bent on tearing us apart)
The pop king of nation tried some painkillers long after Thriller
They sell his music at K-mart (they sell his music at K-mart)
Going station to station, looking for Ben Stiller, getting Phyllis Diller
Now do let's go back to the start (now do let's go back to the start)

    General CommentI think it's about American television and the creation of bad sitcoms/the industry in general. First two verses are about executives and testing. Second two verses talks about syndication?

    Also the lyrics are a tiny bit messed up, nothing major though.
