Lyrics & Music by Pete Kronowitt


I went out to the Uptown theatre
Just to watch the big screen
And all of the people were watching
This big bad rape scene

So I took off on out the theatre
Saw two lovers, they were hand in hand
Till they started fussin’ and fightin’
And he slapped her with his backhand
We got to control the beast from being free
Then we control what will be

I can’t read the paper
Too much bad news out there
All this violence and killing
And nobody seems to care

So I’ll just keep on climbing
The same hill I climbed yesterday
And when frustrations start mounting
I pick up this guitar and play

I just can’t believe it
It’s happened again
This time it’s home
When it’s my girlfriend

Damn those people
Why can’t they control
The ugliness that lies
Deep in their very souls
