    The Powers That Be
    The powers that be
    They like a tough game
    No rules
    Some you win
    Some you lose
    Competition's good for you
    They're dying to be free
    They're the powers that be
    They like a bomb proof cadillac
    Air conditioned
    Gold taps
    Back seat gun rack
    Platinum hub caps
    They pick horses for courses
    They're the market forces:

    Nice car Jack

    They like order
    Make-up
    Lime light power
    Game shows
    Rodeos
    Star wars
    TV
    They're the powers that be
    If you see them come
    You better run
    Run
    You better run on home
    Sisters of mercy better join your brothers
    Put a stop to the soap opera right now
    They say the toothless get ruthless
    You better run on home
    You better run
    Run
    You better run on home
    The powers that be
    They like treats
    Tricks
    Carrots
    And sticks
    They like fear and loathing
    They like sheep's clothing
    And blacked-out vans
    Blacked-out vans
    Contingency plans
    They like death or glory
    They love a good story
    They love a good story
    Sisters of mercy better join withyour brothers
    Put a stop to the soap opera state
    They say the toothless get ruthless
    Run home before its too late
    You better run
    Run
    You better run on home
    You better run
    Billy:Goodnight, Jim.
    Jim:Goodnight, Billy.
    Uncle David's Great Dane:Woof,woof, woof!
    Paraquat Kelly:Bull heads, three red snapper, one pink snapper
    And your Pacific coastal trench hosemonster fish.
    Cynthia Fox:Ohhh!
    At Sky David's juke joint of joy reports
    Forty under the console giggle stick ling cod
    Twenty-three purple perches
    Four sledgehammerhead sharks
    And what a surprise
    Eightyfour crabs, and no red snappers.
    Paraquat Kelly:Hey, and that'lldo for the triumphant return
    Of the fish report with a beat.
    Jim:We think of it as mainstreet
    But to the rest of the country
    It's Sunset Strip
    You're listening to KAOS in Los Angeles.
