Lyrics

   Down in the park 
   Where the Machmen meet 
   The machines are playing `kill-by-numbers' 
   Down in the park with a friend called `Five' 

   I was in a car crash 
   Or was it the war? 
   Well, I've never been quite the same 
   Little white lies like "I was there" 

   Come to "Zom-Zom's", a place to eat 
   Like it was built in one day 
   You can watch the humans 
   Try to run 

   Oh, look, there's a rape machine 
   I'd go outside if it looks the other way 
   You wouldn't believe 
   The things they do 

   Down in the park 
   Where the chant is "Death, death, death" 
   Until the sun cries morning 
   Down in the park with friends of mine 

   "We are not lovers 
   We are not romantics 
   We are here to serve you" 
   A different face but the words never change
