Careful with That Axe, Eugene Lyrics

Down, down. Down, down. The star is screaming.

Beneath the lies. Lie, lie. Tschay, tschay, tschay.

[sound of Waters blowing into the microphone]

[light screaming from Waters]

Careful, careful, careful with that axe, Eugene.

    It's quite obvious, really. It's about an axe murderer and the screams are of the victims of Eugene's mighty axe.

    The song was going to be part of a soundtrack and I guess it flopped. It was a slasher film and I think it was based on a real person.
