The story of Dr. Palmer and Cecil. I have generalized the story to portray all poachers.

The protagonist in this track would only kill in defense of a lion, elephant, or rhino about to be shot for sport.


A dentist has a great life
The dentist can go on safari

Go to hell Dr. Palmer. Go to hell

Why do you need a head on your wall?
Does it make you feel like a King?

Go to hell Dr. Palmer. Go to hell.

It's not a sport to shoot a lion
To me your hunting is a sickness

Go to hell Dr. Palmer. Go to hell.

I'd kill a poacher if I could
I'd put that poacher in the ground

Go to hell Dr. Palmer. Go to hell.

But your time will come and you will pass away
Your soul will be in limbo for an epoch of light years

Go to hell Dr. Palmer. Go to hell.

And we will have the last laugh

The lions will sleep well
