The fletcher memorial home

  1. The Final Cut (1983)

    take all your overgrown infants away somewhere
    and build them a home a little place of their own
    the fletcher memorial
    home for incurable tyrants and kings
    and they can appear to themselves every day
    on closed circuit t.v.
    to make sure they're still real
    it's the only connection they feel
    "ladies and gentlemen, please welcome reagan and haig
    mr. begin and friend mrs. thatcher and paisley
    mr. brezhnev and party
    the ghost of mccarthy
    the memories of nixon
    and now adding colour a group of anonymous latin
    american meat packing glitterati"
    did they expect us to treat them with any respect
    they can polish their medals and sharpen their
    smiles, and amuse themselves playing games for a while
    boom boom, bang bang, lie down you're dead
    safe in the permanent gaze of a cold glass eye
    with their favourite toys
    they'll be good girls and boys
    in the fletcher memorial home for colonial
    wasters of life and limb
    is everyone in?
    are you having a nice time?
    now the final solution can be applied
