"Obsequey (The Death Of Art)" as written by Brian Warner and Tim Skold....
The ancient pharaohs were not too bright they say,
But they made one contribution that I live by to this day,
It's the food pyramid,
And its approved the USDA

Oh grains of the foundation,
So please take my advice,
Of five to eleven servings of bread, cereal or rice,
Three to five of vegetables,
And four fruits is best,
Their antioxidensty fiber help you to digest,
Three servings of yogurt, milk and cheese,
Will help your bones and subsidize the cattle industry

A body needs to grow,
And grow and take regimes,
Why meat can be a tasty treat,
Like fish or even beans

And when you eat your sweets,
Make sure you try,
To limit your servings,
Or you'll

Die!

Everybody!

My body is a pyramid that's made of healthy foods,
So do what we say,
(Yeah!)
Eat right every day,
(Food!),
I, love, you

Buy American!

    General CommentThis is from what I could gather. The words in parentheses I'm not sure of.

    ((man's voice))
    Perhaps I should mention that we have decided that this, the (flip), or... 'homicide' is a little (special), a little too (macabre) for the squeamish. Therefore we have labeled it 'for juveniles only'. Adults will not be permitted to this, unless they are accompanied by their children.
    ((muffled screaming))
    ((unintelligible voices))
    There is a semi-intelligible man's voice at the end, but all I could make out is 'propaganda' and 'I fucking killed'.

    As for the meaning, if seems fairly obvious it is about media censorship, and it is making the rather interesting (and true) statement that the parents are the ones that cannot handle offensive material, not the children.
