Victims Family – Nopalitos lyrics

(a cult tragedy at glance)
A man in a mission
And a man on a mission
Crockett and Koresh
Two guys named Dave
Livin? in the old southwest.
One lived in Waco
The other just below
In San Antonio
The fuckin' Alamo!
Both took on a country
And died in an ashtray
Waco, the Alamo
Towering inferno
Taking heat from Mexico
And gas from Janet Reno
One Dave made the history books
With glory for his trauma
The other made the headlines
And a mini-docudrama.
Both took on a country
And died in an ashtray
But who was the hero?
And who was the psyco?
In the East to take your life
Before defeat is to die with honor.
In the West we praise the man
Who tried but died a hopeless goner.
