Hell-Hole ‘Feel My Pain, World’

On an Internet highway, she was looking for relief
Warm smell of a friendship, reaching out in her grief.
Looking down her results list, she found her ultimate kin
Her heart was pounding, was it wrong or right?
She prayed they’d let her in

Fire

There he stood in the doorway;
She heard the jihad bell
And she was thinking to herself,
“This could be Heaven or it could be Hell”
Then he lit up his vest bomb, and he blew himself away.

There were voices in her ringing ears,
She thought she heard them say…

Welcome to the Hell-Hole ‘Feel My Pain, World’
Such a psycho place (Such a tortured place)
Such a dead-end fate.
Plenty of room at the Hell-Hole ‘Feel My Pain, World’
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find us here…

His mind is gruesomely-twisted, he’s got the Hummers and the long knives,

He’s got a lot of pretty, children girls, in his harem of wives
How they dance in the bunkers, the men stinking of sweat.
Some dance to remember, most dance to forget

So she called up the Captain,
She said, “Please bring me my gun.”
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since two-thousand-and-one.”
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake her up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say…

Welcome to the Hell-Hole ‘Feel My Pain, World’,
Such a psycho place (Such a tortured place)
Such a dead-end fate.
They’re livin’ it up at the Hell-Hole ‘Feel My Pain, World’,
What a sick surprise (what a sick surprise)
Bring your alibis

Drugs, oil and palaces,
Caviar on ice
And he said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast

Last thing she remembers, she was
Running for the door
She had to find the passage back
To the place she was before

“Relax, ” said the watch man,
“We are programmed to receive.
“We can kill you any time you like,
“But you can never leave! ”

  1. I didn’t realize this was a reference to Hotel California until the “This could be Heaven or it could be Hell” line. Clever. I feel like this offers an interesting perspective on a very serious topic. (And now I’ve got an impulse telling me to listen to the Eagles)
