Hollywood Buy Life

The orchestra of bombs musical heroes tip toe through the corpses blood and mud the choir to sing their praises between battle flags and guns Cenotaph the list of tickets chisel the shrapnel scars of so heroic wear the skeletons of our sons our daughters lost for profits and all the peace of damnations fire Colourful of Hollywood's cinematic a weapon for the buyer written script with tunes of carefully cosmetic march on your economic anthem in the spliced edited slaughter of patriotic March over the bodies of their children dieing is so well practiced bullet proof to the silver screen the idiots emporium of weaponed Armageddon bones and steel of applauded celluloid freedom Mesmer effects in sequin glamour add a drop of limbless horror big screen wide screen Technicolor realistic stage set held together with spray on plastic AnnnD CUT ! Did we get that ? Should be a bit more blood don’t you think ? I think we need more blood. Did the exploding tank footage come in ? Yes, yes it’s a war movie goddamn it ! People always die in war movies there’s always blood. Hey you, yes you what’s that ? Yes I know it’s a flag, it looks brand new goddamn it take it away and dirty it up a little. We need more support actors, no, I don’t care how much it costs, just get them. I think we might just get an Oscar for this one.
