lyrics

V1

Beaten with a walking stick ripped from a tree kissed twice by lightning
Chosen to reign supreme over Vinland as Don Quixote’s doppelgänger
a fearful act of torture every time the tablet opens
Quite out of proportion with it's relative unimportance

"jouissance" happens in some other theater of cruelty certainly not here
Phantasmagoria of the banal outfitted for nosebleed stadium seating
These are but illusions dancing onstage, immaculate chicanery
The strings and levers are operated by the moving image of Lon Chaney

We're all animated pictures envisioning a sustainable hustle
Caravaggios of the mp3, cheering Ahab pursuit uncorrupted
Trade one albatross for a few pigeons + more attractive vultures
It's a pleasure to be your entertainment in the last days of culture

CH

There were places you wanted to go
But tread ever so lightly here
We urge you paint along
to this death by numbers


V2

Hoist the disappointments up the battlements in place of heraldry
Let yesterdays heroes fall swifter than ergot scythed wheat
in an expanded today we lay claim to progress's basement, half-flooded
When nobody hears this I'd spread vitriol wide on the North-winds

I can admonish from the pulpit and let evolution stand up straight
But more profitable to be complicit and pour the ashes in a communion (cup)
much more compassionate than the last wastrel's prophetic outburst
Just as urgent and noteworthy a pyrrhic victory for content

My shadow will always tower above my tractioned battered ego
But my narcissism will outlive these fair lichens by a landslide documented
My hands are the tools bestowed by better than a euphemism
My standards and taste rendering 99 % of so-called commodities useless

Pageantry of the inquisition's parade marching on your town
Blacker flags funereal dress and the advanced humor of savages
I will speak with authority, all the conspiracies are true.
This is the keystone we've been shaping since recently misspent youth

CH

There were places you wanted to go
But tread ever so lightly here
We urge you paint along
to this death by numbers
