Barry Adamson - Hungry Ants Lyrics

[Dwight McClusky:] "I'll tell ya something, Scagnetti, in all of my days in
the penal business, and that ain't no small amount of days, right boys?"
[Kavanaugh:] "Oh, no." [Wurlitzer:] "Nope." [Dwight McClusky:] "Mickey and
Mallory Knox are without a doubt the most twisted, depraved pair of shit
fucked that has ever been my displeasure to lay my goddamn eyes on. I'm
tellin' you, these two motherfuckers are a walkin' reminder of just how
fucked up the system really is." [Jack Scagnetti:] "Don't get me started,
okay, warden? Don't get me started." [Dwight McClusky:] "Dwight, you call
me Dwight."

[Jack Scagnetti:] "They've killed a shitload of inmates and guards."
[Dwight McClusky:] "Three inmates, five guards and one shrink all in one
year's time... Open that goddamn gate!" [Prison Guard:] "Yes, sir." [Jack
Scagnetti:] "What, a psychiatrist?" [Dwight McClusky:] "Yeah, Mickey's
better half, Miss Mallory, strangled his ass when he made the dumb-ass
mistake to ask her what her parents were like, and she done it all shut up
on tranquilizers too." [Jack Scagnetti:] "Oh..."

[Dwight McClusky:] "Ain't love grand? If that doesn't tell the truth.
Listen, I got another dead lie: love makes the world go around." [Black
Inmate:] "Hey, I need to talk to you 'bout..." [Dwight McClusky:] "How did
a fellow like you get to be a specialist in psychos anyway?" [Jack
Scagnetti:] "Well, actually, Dwight, I'd recommend having your mother
killed by one. After that happened I developed a rather keen interest in
the subject, you know?" [Dwight McClusky:] "What happened?" [Jack
Scagnetti:] "When I was born I spend the first part of my life in Texas."
[Dwight McClusky:] "Oh, that's funny, you don't have an accent." [Jack
Scagnetti:] "Nah, I don't wanna talk like those assholes." [Dwight
McClusky:] "Well, my, my mother was from Texas." [Jack Scagnetti:] "I meant
those other assholes, you know, who used to beat the shit out of me.
Anyway, one day, when I was 8 years old, my mother... my mother... I wanted
to play in the park. And it just so happened to be the same day Charles
Whitman had climbed to the top of the University Texas Tower and started
shooting strangers." [Dwight McClusky:] "And you was with her." [Jack
Scagnetti:] "Sure was. You see, the thing is, Dwight, I didn't hear any
shots. I didn't hear any of 'em. And one minute I'm walking with my mother
when all of a sudden... Chest explodes. She hits the ground, right? I'm
just lookin' at her, her forearm flies off, her hip explodes and... Now,
I'm not hearing any of these shots, right? BOOM! Chest explodes! Right?"


[Jack Scagnetti:] "I spent all goddamn day lying flat on the grass, bein'
eat alive by fucking ants. I'm thinking, what happened to my ma, you know?
And ever since then I've had a strong opinion about the psychopathic fools
that's alive today in America's fast-food culture. I tend not to exhibit
the self-discipline, you know." [Dwight McClusky:] "You..." [Jack
Scagnetti:] "And comin' off a peace officer." [Dwight McClusky:] "You got
it right, Jack. You got it right. Say, you don't mind, do ya, if I call you
Jack?"
