lyrics

Another bullshit story about what happened in ‘63
How come it’s always Texas when there’s a murder on TV?
You know that you’re in Texas
When there’s a murder on the TV screen

Don’t you know
You get that signal everywhere you go
From New York City to Mexico
No soap radio
No soap radio

Another bloodsick maniac out on the campaign trail
Like mercury in the water after the revolution failed
A shadow in the doorway
After the revolution failed

Don’t you know
You get that signal everywhere you go
From New York City to Mexico
No soap radio
No soap radio

No soap...no soap radio
No soap...no soap radio
Etc.

SAXOPHONE SOLO

I know that my days are numbered, I can feel my heart expand
I know the venom is in my blood
By the mark upon my hand
The venom in my blood
The mark upon my hand
The venom in my blood
The mark upon my hand
The venom in my blood
The mark upon my hand

Don’t you know
You get that signal everywhere you go
From Texas to Ontario
No soap radio
Don’t you know
You get that signal everywhere you go
From New York City to Mexico
No soap radio
No soap radio
No soap radio
No soap radio
Etc.
