WEAR YOUR BEST

From The Late Album

THERE WAS A LANDMARK MAN WITH A FACE LIKE A HAPPY GOD
CHANGED ROBES ON THE ROAD ON THE WAY TO THE SEMINAR
HE WAS THE ELDEST SON OF A MILLIONAIRE
LOST HIS MONEY BUT HE KEPT HIS HAIR
HE FOUND POWER IN THE PEACE OF THE TV LENS AND
LIVE STUDIO AUDIENCES

WEAR YOUR BEST
UNEMPLOYED TELEVANGELIST
ONE BOOK IS ALL YOU EVER READ
WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO NEXT

SHE WAS THE KIND OF GIRL THAT A RICH OLD MAN MARRIES
BOUGHT FROM A MALL IN A TOWN LIKE MOLASSES
HE HAD TO COVER THE COST OF HER CAPTURE
MAKE A BUCK BEFORE THE RAPTURE
BUT HE PROMISED HER A PIECE OF THE TV LENS AND
LIVE STUDIO AUDIENCES

WEAR YOUR BEST
PLACE A CALL TO YOUR PSYCHIC FRIEND
ONE BOOK IS ALL YOU EVER READ
FIFTEEN MINUTES THEN YOU GET TO REST

WEAR YOUR BEST
'CAUSE HE'S GONNA RUN FOR RPESIDENT
HE'S GOT A VISION IN HIS HEAD
HEALTHY HEART IN HIS WAR CHEST
MEMORIZE THE LINES THAT WEAR THE BEST

THEY SAY THE FUTURE WIFE HIDES AMONGST THE AUTOGRAPH HOUNDS
CONCEALING HER WEAPON IN A MOURNING DRESS EVENING GOWN
HE'S GOT A NEW SUIT AND A MESSAGE TO SELL: SEX AND VIOLENCE AND HELL
HE SAYS HE SEES THE EARTH AS A TICKING CLOCK, 
BEING RAPED BY THE CORPORATE COCK 
AND IT'S JUST AS WELL

WEAR YOUR BEST
UNEMPLOYED TELEVANGELIST
ONE BOOK IS ALL YOU EVER READ
WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO NEXT

ANGEL WITH A MULLET AND HIS HAND OUTSTRETCHED
FIFTEEN MINUTES THEN YOU GET TO REST
MEMORIZE THE LINES THAT WEAR THE BEST
