Whispered ravens stab rhythm and blues
kick off your flares and platform shoes and
burn like brilliant trash at Jackie's funeral
This machine has gone insane
we're powered up power slaves
so we burn like brilliant trash at Jackie's funeral
White House rapist soul disease
invested with godlike authority
light 'em up do as you please
and burn like brilliant trash (eternity)
Where is now your American dream
I saw him down on the street pimping
not for sale at any price
fisher king do what you like

I supplied the molten lead in Jackie's lifelike dream
I survived while Ruby died in Jackie's trashy fantasy
and we burn
and we burn
and we burn

Slippery angels gone astray
holy man what can you say
I pledge allegiance to this array of insanity destruction and decay
Uzi merciless girl
where do you land the man of this world
we're stripped down to bleeding and dying
or scrawling on walls meaningless words

    General CommentThere was probably a JFK book passed around Scott Benzel's friends, namely the filmmaker Richard Linklater. The book was probably about the conspiracy theory that JFK and Jackie were amphetamine addicts. According to his film Slacker they had a doctor named "Dr. Feelgood," who would supply them with whatever they needed for "exhaustion."
