"Art mythology has run amok."

"New York ARTWORLD of superstars and supergroupies is rancid. Only greed and jealousy reign. Nature is dying the most blackened death, only egos are booming. One vanity fair too many - this lonely WANNABE would do anything to be on the front covers - the problem being... no known charisma - does a talent for murder count?"

"Poor Andy; poor everyone!" - Jim, e-mail, 11th March 1998

Did you ever see the sun rise up,
Above this blackened hole?
Did you ever feel that what you want's,
Not under your control?
Ever think that how you feel,
Is not quite what you are?
Some of us are satellites.
Some are superstars.

They're killing Andy Warhol.
He's a saint and he's a thief.
We'll all die a million times.
That's what I believe.
Killing Andy Warhol.
Killing Andy Warhol.

They say the rain in Europe,
Cools you down and helps you think.
Water, water everywhere,
Nothing you can drink.
Kissing Andy Warhol,
His skin feels like a shark.
White hair sits so beautiful,
Eyelids are so dark.
And I'm trying to get ahead,
Like any boy or girl.
There'd be no dictators anywhere,
If I could rule the world.

Killing Andy Warhol.
Killing Andy warhol.

That's impossible - he got all that money.
Adorable - having all that money.
Feasable - that it's all black money.
It's so criminal - making all that money.

All I want, is what I'd want,
But I don't want that now.
They're dressing Andy Warhol up,
If only thay knew how.
Jesus on the neon sign,
Turns and starts to laugh.
And I'm thinking about this oxygen,
And how I'll make it last.

Killing Andy Warhol.

He's a saint - yeah he's a thief.
Motorways are everywhere,
With no clean air to breathe.

Killing Andy Warhol.
Killing Andy Warhol.

Till the end of time,
Till the end of time.

Having all that money.
Killing Andy Warhol.
He's got all that money,
And it's real black money.
Making all that money.
Killing Andy Warhol.
Killing Andy Warhol.
