lyrics

I heard her say on the radio I want heartland values extended to all and after the fall of the secular state the stars all aligned in the perfect place and she got her way her’s was a cause celebre amongst those who never make mistakes in bed Devona never saw the morality play it was hard enough to get to her job each day she bused an hour to a quickie mart gig the neighbor kept a lazy eye on her four kids the dads of whom were not exactly kicking down still she gave it up for them when they came around kid number five she knew she couldn’t have but heartland values said too fucking bad pro life pro death penalty interesting philosophy morality can be so cruel yeah they’ll put you on a pedestal then kick it out from under you yeah so this overzealous South Dakota Lady flew Pierre to Colorado Springs she went to receive an award of commendation from a mega mega mega mega church congregation we thank thee for fighting for life’s sanctity in your honor we planted a red delicious tree yeah so the unwanted kid had it bad born with a habit never could kick it twenty three years of sordid details don’t merit repeating but the last one does because he was fixin’ for his latest fix when he hit up the grocery she was there fresh from the ceremony cap in clerk cap in her cap in cash register the clerk dies she survives he get’s apprehended and she testifies she says yeah I was there and I saw what he did and I want to see the motherfucker executed oh such harsh words from a heartland wife hell bent on protecting the sanctity of life yeah well she gets her wish and sits in front of Devona whose offspring she legislated into being and with the flick of a switch and an agonized shout she gets to see the sanctity of life snuffed out pro life pro death penalty interesting philosophy morality can be so cruel they’ll put you on a pedestal then kick it out from under you
