RAIDERS OF METHADONE

Here's a song I sang for Montreal-made feature film Shirley Pimple recorded circa early 90's. From what I was told, Montreal band Bliss provided the instrumentalization (I did the voice-over after). The lyrics were written by the film's director Demetri Estdelacropolis specifically for the character I was playing throughout the movie; a "Psychotic Weakling Child-Molestor John Wayne Zombie." Please keep this in mind while contemplating the lyrics below. THEY ARE NOT ME THEY ARE MY FICTIONAL CHARACTER. Lol.

RAIDERS OF METHADONE

John Wayne's guns are made of gold, John Wayne's god's are made of gold, This psycho ward's my home, This slit is filled with foam, Like a cat mit out a hat, Ivan without panty-waists, Scorcese on methadone, There's a killer in my porridge, His hemorrhage squirming like a squirrel, Injecting horse & goat, The syringe is in remote, My wife's become a narc, Shoots niggers in the dark, The avenger's missed her mark, Raiders on methadone, Satan's Choice wears green & gold, Jim Morrison's morse code, His joke was growing old, Meth-amphetamine overlord, Just a poseur in the end, John Wayne's shylock's in Tehran, Raiders on amphetamine, Onto this fag we're spilt, The destroyer's on the road, Armageddon is her sword, Her veins are full of chrome, Itchy itchy styrofoam, The librarian's on the road, Harley Davidsons' index code, Raiders of Metha-Dome, John Wayne's guns are made of gold, John Wayne's god's are made of gold, This psycho ward's my home, This slit is filled with foam, Like a cat mit out a hat, Ivan without panty-waists, Scorcese's on methadone, Marty Scorcese on methadone, There's a killer in my porridge, His hemorrhage squirming like a squirrel, Injecting horse & goat, The syringe is in remote, My wife's become a narc, Shoots niggers in the dark, John Wayne's methadone.
