Subsequent to the events you have just witnessed
Similar events in cities across America
Events which bore a striking resemblance
To the ones you have just seen, began occurring

Oh, subsequent to the events you have just witnessed
Unsuspecting jerks from Maine to California
Made the acquaintance of a new breed of fly trap
And got sweet-talked into feeding it blood

Thus the plants worked their terrible will
Finding jerks who would feed them their fill
And the plants proceeded to grow
And grow and grow

And began what they came here to do
Which was essentially to
Eat Cleveland and Des Moines and Peoria
And New York and this theater

They may offer you fortune and fame
Love and money and instant acclaim
But whatever they offer you
Don't feed the plants

They may offer you lots of cheap thrills
Fancy condos in Beverly Hills
But whatever they offer you
Don't feed the plants

Look out, here comes Audrey Two
Look out, here I come for you
(Here I come for you, here I come for you, here I come for you)

Hold your hat and hang on to your soul
Something's coming to eat the world whole
If we fight it
We've still got a chance

But whatever they offer you
Though they're slopping the trough for you
Please, whatever they offer you
Don't feed the plants

We'll have tomorrow
Don't feed the plants
