The Actor's Opprobrium - Of Montreal

I guess I should have known to stay away
From a snuff film by Gene Genet
But the cash was good and the director
Gave me the biggest scene
What does it mean when Pentecostal born-again virgins
Appear picketing in angry protest?
Oh, those sloppy tarts
Have sulphurized hearts

Sure, a dead man quietly pulling on his tongue
In a coffin after being hung
Does make strange _rotic cinema
But that was the great master's vision
And the actors agree to portray
The fiend is best in a death fantasy
Because when one is licking the knife
Ah, well, that is truly the life

Oh, what does it mean
When the stagehand approaches
Wheeling in a guillotine?
Let's play nice
Yes, I want to be a star
But that's going too far

Yes, I'm still smarting from the bite
Of coital sessions in gelatinal light
I'm questioning my chosen career
Don't think I'll be attending the premier
