*shortwave Survivor

Survival may depend on a donation of flesh and blood
The Dead hate the Living and wish to outlaw carnal lust
The Living who are not without feeling can’t keep a straight poker face
Therefore the Dead hold all of the cards and are prepared to call a bluff
Knowing the Living will cash everything in for the high of being loved
Eaten alive by two depraved lesbians and a guy named Dave
Dave's followers count to ten every night on their unimposing thumbs
Just before Sarah Palin removes her lipstick for the night
Message on the radio says “Drill Baby Drill”
“We interrupt this program to report
Obama claims he inherited this shit…”
As dead air fills the room....
Survival may depend on a donation of flesh and blood
