Joni Mitchell’s Sex Kills

I pulled up behind a Cadillac
We were waiting for the light
And I took a look at his license plate
It said, “Just Ice.”
Is justice just ice?
Governed by greed and lust?
Just the strong doing what they can
And the weak suffering what they must?

And the gas leaks
And the oil spills
And sex sells everything
And sex kills
Sex kills

Doctors’ pills give you brand new ills
And the bills bury you like an avalanche
And lawyers haven’t been this popular
Since Robespierre slaughtered half of France
And Indian chiefs with their old beliefs know
The balance is undone — crazy ions
You can feel it out in traffic
Everyone hates everyone

And the gas leaks
And the oil spills
And sex sells everything
And sex kills
Sex kills
