Dissecting Michael Jackson. (written and saved as draft Aug. 18)

On other blogs I've often seen the analysis of song lyrics. I will attempt to do so here. Today I will tackle The inimitable Michael Jackson. His words will appear in bold and my annotations will be italicized. Please note, lyrics are printed without permission, however I do not claim them as my own. All lyrics in this post I assume to be copywritten by the artist.

Michael Jackson - Bad Lyrics

Your butt is mine
gonna tell you right


I wish to have sex with 8 year old boys

Just show your face in broad daylight.
I'm telling you on how I feel


I wish to have sex with 8 year old boys

Gonna hurt your mind
don't shoot to kill I'll pull out
Come on
come on
lay it on me
all right.
I'm giving you on count of three
To show your stuff or let it be.
Please undress, young man
I'm telling you
just watch your mouth


Blow me, kid

I know your game
what you're about.


Well
they say the sky's the limit
and to me that's really true

I'm fucking Crazy. I'll do anything. If you don't believe it look at the history of litigation against me.

but
my friend
you have seen nothing

just wait 'til I get through -

You, in your childish inexperience have not known the beast with two backs.

Because I'm bad
I'm bad - come on He's bad

You know I'm bad
I'm bad - you know it!
You know I'm bad
I'm bad - come on

Some part of me is not sick and twisted. That part of me tells the really fucked up part that "hey, this really isn't right. Sex with children is cruel and morally wrong!!"

And the whole world has to answer right now

Just to tell you once again who's bad!

Me!

The word is out
you're doin' wrong

Gonna lock you up before too long.
your lyin' eyes gonna tell you right

Do I need explain?

So listen up
don't make a fight!
Your talk is cheap
you're not a man

were you a man I would not be attracted to you, for that if you were a grown women I'd be left totally cold


You're throwin' stones to hide your hands. (?????)

Well
they say the sky's the limit
and to me that's really true

but
my friend
you have seen nothing

just wait 'til I get through -

Because I'm bad
I'm bad - come on

You know I'm bad
I'm bad - you know it!
You know I'm bad
I'm bad - come on

And the whole world has to answer right now

Just to tell you once again who's bad!

We can change the world tomorrow

this could be a better place

If you don't like what I'm sayin'

then won't you slap my face -

Because I'm bad
I'm bad - come on

You know I'm bad
I'm bad - you know it!
You know I'm bad
I'm bad - come on

And the whole world has to answer right now

Just to tell you once again who's bad!

You know I'm bad
I'm bad - come on

You know I'm bad
I'm bad - you know it!
You know I'm bad
I'm bad - come on

And the whole world has to answer right now

Just to tell you once again who's bad!

You know I'm smooth
I'm bad - you know it

You know I'm bad
I'm bad
baby.
You know
you know
you know it - come on

And the whole world has to answer right now

Just to tell you once again.

You know I'm bad
I'm bad - you know it

You know I'm bad
I'm bad - you know!
You know I'm bad
I'm bad - you know it
you know

And the whole world has to answer right now

Just to tell you once again. Who's bad? Me!

To be completely truthful, annotation isn't really needed. I think he's been confessing his twisted predelictions for some time. See also Man in the Mirror and Billy Jean.

How can we be surprised by this monster? The loves of his life have always been young boys. Never girls. For all of his claims toward love of children, his habits belie a fixation. Has anyone seen him with young girls?

Sure, he was acquitted. So was O.J. Legally he may not be culpable, but morally he must be.

And for that matter, the parents that leave their young children with odd grown men really aught to find themselves charged as well.

Postscript: I abandoned this post as obvious and lacking direction. I don't back pedal on it's veracity in my eyes, but it did lack eloquence and the precision I hope for in my ranting. However, I don't have much to say today and I felt like posting. Beware of more of my editing and reposting aborted ideas. Sorry.
