Dead Kennedys - The Prey Lyrics




You're from out of town
I can tell that by your shoes
Flew in for the convention
Getting tipsy in a bar

You're leaving pretty late
Gotta get up in the morning
Thinking she's just too expensive
And you know you're:
Probably:
Right

There's no one on the streets
And you can't find your hotel
You walk a little faster
-someone's following you

The wallet-size bulge
In your double-knit butt
Has money for me
And maybe credit cards

You dart around the next corner
You can't look around
Quick now, fish for the keys for the door
You don't even know where you are

You walk a little faster
I walk a little faster
Sensing that I sense you
Now there's no escape

I can almost taste your dandruff
As I reach for your face
-And I strike

Dead Kennedys The Prey Comments
  1. Erich Fischer

    whats all this @acethirtysix shit? dk was "old punk" in1987 what do they call it now? if you have never heard G.B.H city babys revenge or exploited or circle jerks or violence by youth brigade then kill yourself cause your are not even close to being "punk rock"

  2. mykill cabannis

    Trippiest song ever!

  3. Kimmo Laine

    Jello sounds so damn deragend here. Getting the creeps. :p

    tony l

    Kimmo Laine the doors

  4. themopedmetallist

    The Bacon Contigent recite this instead of their sworn Oath SHAME on Veterans who buy into “this day and age” when applying for public service positions. That’s right, I said it. Tyranny has NO PLACE in my beloved USA. Extreme violence has gone on since Cain and Abel. Where is rational thoughts and actions anymore? In the dumpster so these snowflake Kriminalpolizen can exercise THEIR “abundance of caution” (AWK!) Traffic Stop handcuffing = aggravated sexual assault under Reagan’s Americans with Disabilities Act Flip THAT script, folks!

  5. Tj W

    Those last 37 seconds are so intense.

    You're from out of town, I can tell that by your shoes
    Flew in for the convention, getting tipsy in a bar

    You're leaving pretty late, gotta get up in the morning
    Thinking she's just too expensive
    And you know, you're probably right

    There's no one on the streets and you can't find your hotel
    You walk a little faster, someone's following you

    The wallet-sized bulge in your double-knit butt
    Has money for me, and maybe credit cards

    You dart around the next corner, you can't look around
    Quick now, fish for the keys for the door
    You don't even know where you are

    You walk a little faster, I walk a little faster
    Sensing that I sense you, now there's no escape

    I can almost taste your dandruff as I reach out for your face and I STRIKE!

    I had my DK playlist on, and then this song appeared while I was nearly sleeping and totally I'll. when the glass broke and the bass began I thought It was real life and the sing was with me in my dreams, but I didn't dream of being hunted. Just about someone staring at me.

  12. 171apples171

    This song should've been on A Night On Earth just the part before he started singing, has the same vibe as the movie.
