"Ted, Just Admit It..." as written by Eric Adam Avery, Stephen Perkins, David Navarro and Perry Farrell....
Camera got them images
Camera got them all
Nothing's shocking
Showed me everybody
Naked and disfigured
Nothing's shocking
And then he came
Now sister's
Not a virgin anymore
Her sex is violent

The T.V.'s got them images
T.V.'s got them all
It's not shocking!
Every half an hour
Someone's captured and
The cop moves them along
It's just like the show before
The news is
Just another show
With sex and violence

Sex is violent
Sex is violent
Sex is violent
Sex is violent
Sex is violent
Sex is violent
Sex is violent!

I am the killer of people
You look like a meatball
I'll throw away your toothpick
And ask for your giveness

Because of this thing!
Because of this thing!
Because of this thing!

That's in me
Is it not in you?
Is it not your problem?

A baby to a mother
You talk too much
To your scapegoat

That's what I say
He tells you everyone is stupid
That's what he thinks!

Snapshots
Make a girl look cheap
Like a tongue extended
A baby's to a mother

Sex is violent!
Sex is violent!
Sex is violent!
Sex is violent!

    General CommentIt's about the way that we are de-sensatized to everything, and that news footage of people being shot and blown up is no more real to us than watching Friday the 13th.

    Hvusnme is right, the quote at the start is from an interview with Ted Bundy, and Jane's addiction have used this, because at his trial, he claimed that watching pornography and violent images on TV had warped his mind and caused him to comit his crimes (it didn't work, he was executed for 28 murder convictions, lol), but this basically ties in with the theme of the song.

    General CommentI think Perry once said he wrote this song after watching a video about serial killers while taking acid, and that actual words aren't so much about Bundy, more like the divide between good and bad - sex and violence.

    General Commentif you want to know exactly what this song is about read the 'only living witness' it's one of the most foremost accounts of what Bundy did. The thing in this song that creeps me the fuck out is the multiple refrences to cameras/snapshots. I don't know if JA knew it at the time of writing this song, but Bundy, about a week before he was killed, confessed to taking polaroids of some, or all of his victims. the pictures have yet to be found
