About "Dr. Pepsi's Death Cult Glee Club"

This song was written after I had watched a documentary about Jonestown, which featured music from their choir. They were very talented and I couldn’t help wondering if any of them had survived. I’d like to think that there were a couple of ‘em that grabbed their guitars and said, “Let’s get the heck out of here” just before things got out of hand.
Lyrics…
I won’t be back for your birthday
and I’m pretty sure I won’t come home at all.
'Cuz I’ve joined the local death cult
and I’m singing in the glee club there this fall.
In Dr Pepsi’s death cult glee club now…
and a church bell tolls for the poor lost souls
who never will be found.
Performing numbers everyone remembers as they
gaze up through the embers and their fires all burn out.
Is there nothing you believe in
that could not withstand a scrutinous review?
You should talk to Dr. Pepsi, 'cuz his death cult just may be the place for you!
In Dr. Pepsi’s death cult glee club now,
and they try to please authorities who want to
shut them down.
Performing numbers everyone remembers as they
gaze up through the embers and their fires all burn out.
And I want to see you one more time
before they call us in line….baby,
no one else feels like we do…I don’t fit in,
and neither do you.
They’ll soon be serving drinks here
and the beverage cue stretches for half a mile
If we just keep them from drinking with our singing than it’s gonna be worthwhile!
In Dr. Pepsi’s death cult glee club now,
and although the room is full of gloom
we’re doing “Twist & Shout”.
Performing numbers everyone remembers as they
gaze up through the embers and their fires all burn out.
In Dr. Pepsi’s death cult glee club now,
it was 20 years ago today
Dr. Pepsi taught them all to pray.
Performing numbers everyone remembers as they
gaze up through the embers and their fires all burn out.
