Tension
Tension
Tension is all that I know
I got tension out in traffic, I got tension in my office
I got tension, and it's everywhere that I go

After the bad guy killed off all the under-developed characters,
The good guy put a bullet right through his head
The screenwriter stood up and told us all the loose ends had been tied
Justice is irrelevant; violent problems need violent solutions
'cause in America we like our bad guys dead

It's called box office, baby. It's bigger than the damn Stones.

Tension
Tension
Tension is all that I know
I tension in my health food, tension in my exercise
I got tension, and it's everywhere that I go

Well, they roped off all of my problems and pointed their fingers at addiction
'cause they know if you're doing the pointing, nobody's looking at you
But you know this war on drugs is funded by the tobacco and alcohol commissions
It's not what drugs you're strung out on they care about as much as whose.
You see, people still love drugs.
They're bigger, hell, they're bigger than Rush Limbaugh

Tension
Tension
Tension, it's all that I know
I got tension in my classroom, I got tension in my courtroom
I got tension and it's everywhere that I go

When rock'n'roll first came around, the preachers all went crazy
But soon that wasn't enough to bring people in the door
So now they jump on any scandal that they can to try and save me
'cause they know I don't buy that crap about the devil's music anymore
Abortion, that's what scares people these days.
And fear, fear is bigger than Elvis Aaron Presley.
