‘Capital of Texas’ a remix of appropriations by Matt Whitman

Capital of Texas

 

Is the mic on?

Uh, I don’t know, Um, I don’t know what to say. I don’t know.

(pauses)

I didn’t know anybody was there.

Could you please tell that lady right there, can I see her, she is not looking at me.

Howdy.

 

This has been a long journey, one of enlightenment. It’s not the end, it’s only the beginning.

There are 300 people on death row, and everyone is not a monster

Everyone changes, right?

 

My gun had a hair trigger

Never trust a court-appointed attorney.

My brother… where’s my stunt double when you need one?

 

Ain’t life a [expletive deleted] ?

 

They are fixing to pump my veins with a lethal drug the American Veterinary Association won’t even allow to be used on dogs.

I say I am worse off than a dog.

I hope you find closure. Don’t let that hate eat you up, find a way to get past it

 

murder me

 

I deserve this

 

Texas loud, Texas proud.

Let’s do this damn thing

One more thing, Viva Mexico, Viva Mexico.

 

Are they already doing it?

 

Mom, I love you

Yeah, I love all ya’ll.

I forgive all ya’ll.

 

I can feel it, taste it, not bad.

I can taste it already. I am starting to go.

You can taste it.

You may proceed Warden.

 

I feel it; I am going to sleep now. Goodnight, 1, 2 there it goes..

This stuff stings, man almighty.

 

His final statement lasted 3 minutes.

 

(began singing)
