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

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 begin what they came here to do

Which was essentially to
Eat Cleveland and Des Moines
And Peoria and New York
And where you live

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

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
Don’t feed the plants
