Track Name: Caveat Emptor
My God, it’s full of stars!

Hiding beneath the vast oceans of Venus
He avoids a Martian advance
And makes himself a humble home
With golden arches and an empire of his own
False Maria freeing Hell with her dance

One third now follow the order
Of a foul prince’s demands
Unlubed now he is raping the earth
He needs oil for the girth
Of his phallus and its darkened romance

You’re the apple of his eye
Often sell but never buy
What’s at the bottom of your lie
You are the catcher in the rye
Hey!

That's right...in the middle!

We don’t
(No, no, don’t owe you)
Owe you anything
(No, no, we don’t owe)
You’ve signed
(Signed)
Your life away

Admired by the oceans of people
In a voodoo trance
The brand achieves consciousness
Then begins to stand
Was this part of your plan?
