Urban Guerrilla

Sound clip available
Automatic weapons rake the roof
Powdered concrete hangs around like spray
He huddles underneath the parapet
And knows there is no way
This is as far as he will get

The hostages and all his friends are dead
His turn is coming soon
What was it that motherfucker said?
Better chance of conquering the moon
He holds his ringing head

     The happy endings never came
     The terrors were seldom just a dream
     Bambi was finished by the flame
     You still could hear him scream
     Snow White was rubbed out by the witch
     Mary Poppins never made the scene
     Mother Goose was just another bitch
     Full of bullshit like the Fairy Queen

The gas grenades are telling him to run
He does and something hits him like a wall
It sends him back where he has always been
His nightmares laugh to see him fall

I told you they were gonna bust your ass
Says Tom Thumb inside an upturned glass
