Scene I:

He turns the TV high, the walls are paper thin
He hopes the neighbor folks aren't listening
He's killed his wife with words, confident it's private rage
When up goes the curtain and he's on the stage

He's on the stage, yeah, God sees it all
He's on the stage, yeah, He has total recall
It is an art, yeah, hiding murder in your heart

Scene II:

The show is over, he pours himself a drink
Best to forget about it
Put a record on the stereo and try not to think
And the record plays:
"...This is your life, you beat your wife..."
We'll spare the gory details and simply say

Recording artist, yeah, God hears it all
Recording artist, yeah, He has total recall
Your sneaky moves, yeah, are right here in
the grooves

Scene III:

He puts his car in gear, got to get outta here
Going somewhere far away (going somewhere far away)
But through the headlight beam
He sees a billboard scene, his fight last night is on display

You're on display, yeah, He sees it all
(Recording artist / Yeah, is on stage)
You're on display, yeah, He has total recall
(Recording artist / Your private rage, yeah, is on stage)
You're on display, yeah, He sees it all
(Recording artist / Your private rage, yeah, is on stage)
You're on display, yeah yeah, He has total recall
(Recording artist / Your private rage, yeah, is on stage)
Your bloody crime, oh is up there on the sign
Nah nah nah nah nah...
