Tension

 

APPEARS ON


Tension
Tension
Tension it's all that I know
I got tension out in traffic
I got tension in my office
I got tension and it's everywhere that I go

After the bad guy killed off all the underdeveloped characters
The good guy put a bullet right through his head
The screenwriter stood up and told us that all the loose ends had been tied
Justice is irrelevant
Violent problems need violent solutions
'Cause in America we like our bad guys dead
It's called box office, baby
It's bigger than the damn Stones

Tension
Tension
Tension it's all that I know
I got tension in my health food
Tension in my exercise
Tension and it's everywhere that I go

Well they roped off all of my problems and pointed their fingers at addiction
'Cause they know if you're doing the pointing no one's looking at you
But you know this war on drugs it's funded by the Tobacco and Alcohol Commissions
It's not what drugs you're strung out on they care about as much as whose
You see people....people still love drugs
They're bigger than...hell, they're bigger than Rush Limbaugh

Tension
Tension
Tension it's all that I know
I got tension in my classroom
I got tension in my courtroom
I got tension and it's everywhere that I go

When rock and roll first came around the preachers all went crazy
But soon that wasn't enough to bring people in the door
So now they jump on any scandal that they can to try and save me
'Cause they know I don't buy that crap about the Devil's music anymore
Abortion
That's what scares people these days
And fear
Hell...fear is bigger than Elvis Aaron Presley
