Murolces odro suvon sitpeoc tiunna

What the devil's goin' on
Why don't your turn that music down
You're going deaf and that's for sure
But all you do is scream for more

Get the lead out go for broke
Pop your pills and drink and smoke
Shoot those chemicals into your vein
Anything to ease the pain

Heavy metal (heavy metal) poisoning (it's a poison)
A toxic wasteland (got a toxic wasteland) in your ear canal (in your ear canal!)
Overloaded (I'm overloaded), suffering (yeah!)
Overloaded (overloaded) on s** and drugs

Everything is black and white
You are wrong and we are right
First we'll spank your big behinds
Then we'll twist your little minds

I'm dr. Righteous (I'm dr. Righteous), and I'm here to sing (yeah!)
That heavy metal (heavy metal) is poisoning
It's a music wasteland, that destroys the young (yeah!)
They're overloaded (overloaded) on s** and drugs, s** and drugs, s** and drugs
And rock and roll!

Sterces eht sdloh natas

I'm dr. Righteous (I'm dr. Righteous), and I'm here to sing (yeah!)
That heavy metal (heavy metal) is poisoning
It's a music wasteland, that destroys the young (yeah!)
They're overloaded (overloaded) on s** and drugs, s** and drugs, s** and drugs
And rock and roll!

Heavy metal (heavy metal) poisoning (it's a poison)
A toxic wasteland (got a toxic wasteland) in your love canal love canal!)
Overloaded (I'm overloaded), suffering (yeah!)
Overloaded (overloaded) on s** and drugs, s** and drugs, s** and drugs
S** and drugs, s** and drugs, s** and drugs, s** and drugs, s** and drugs
"righteous! righteous!..."
"shut up!"
"...righteous! righteous! righteous! righteous! righteous! yeah!"
"shut up! shut up!"
