you should listen to mc triple dragon's song 'bloggin all night like a villinz does'. for real, that's more relevant i think. - frank101

I love when skulls and flowers are juxtaposed. Sometimes, I see them in the night.

Perhaps you are using a similar literary device here, but the lyrics are 'a bit' 'tongue in cheek'

very good song. thanks for the audio link Ryanne.

I'll try and get the mp3 of this Zappa gem:

I am gross and perverted
I’m obsessed ’n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little had changed
I am the tool of the government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can’t look away
I make you think I’m delicious
With the stuff that I say
I am the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I am the slime oozin’ out
From your tv set

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don’t need you
Don’t got for help...no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

That’s right, folks..
Don’t touch that dial

Well, I am the slime from your video
Oozin’ along on your livin’room floor

I am the slime from your video
Can’t stop the slime, people, lookit me go
