Lard Ballad of Marshall Ledbetter Lyrics

Six-hundred sixty-six Dunkin' Donuts
A twenty-inch veggie pizza from Gumby's
Extra jalapeƱos on the side
And a case of Asahi Dry
I wish to speak with Timothy Leary
Lemmy, Jello, and Ice Cube, too
Carton of Lucky's with filters
And bring a CNN news crew
Tallahassee, Florida
4 AM, June 14th, '91
Capitol building's occupied
Broke the glass, walked right inside
Wouldn't be advisable to enter
You don't know the number of hostiles
Or if anyone's got guns
Or if there's hostages

I just want to
Speak my mind
More for you than
Just one soundbite

[?] cop and Info Man have something to say
This whole world is disturbing me
I want to cut a rap record each month
And mail my little pinky to George Bush

Sharpshooters on surrounding roofs
Traffic blocked off by SWAT troops
Evacuate the people inside
Pretend we're CNN, say Leary's died

I just want to
Speak my mind
More to you than
Just one soundbite

2:45, he emerged unharmed
JD in one hand, in the other, cigar
Hendrix T-shirt and his underwear on
Guess what? He never had no gun

Where are my friends?
Where are you? Where are you?
I can't believe it's come to this

I only broadcast my freakout to the world
I was a prisoner for twenty-two years
When I broke through that door, I was free
Not to mention pretty damn lucky

Nowadays, boy, you'd just get shot
