Acid trips and glugs of gravy You transformed, there is no maybe Glaciers, caffeine, have you met the smiler Married to the nothingness Don't tell Granny Kyler
Fourteen-year-old boy rapes eighty-year-old man Tickets to the Met Sweet corn from the can Baby's in the whitest house Playing with his toys Earthquakes, forest fires, hot Brazilian boys 67 yogurt flavors Which one do you want? Can't decide on toothpaste Emmanuel Kant Do you really think they don't know what they're doing? Everything was okay Someone needed screwing Yeast infection Synthesizers Demi-semi-quavers Who created ISIS? Emotional blackmail She knows what I mean Broccoli with cheese sauce How long you been clean?
As I enjoy distraction She just slipped away It didn't seem to matter How much she had prayed They took her in an ambulance And that is where she died And still until up to this very day I don't think I have cried About life's selfishness My self-absorption Questions left unanswered Spiritual extortion And in my my dreams Her face is vague A mere suggestion And when I wake I can't remember Why I'm feeling sad
A new shooting Fresh for breakfast This one's in Florida, not in Texas Manchurian Candidate To subconscious trigger Have you seen the remake? I have to watch my figure Lemon Bismarck doughnut That won't hurt now won't it Tiki bar, rat souffle You agree on Marvin Gaye Sylvia, Sylvia Would not take the garbage out Now just look what you've done Your delicious secrets out Whirla Whip, bloodlust Who do you think you can trust? Empire crumble, calculated stumble Are you ready for your black awakening You're not gonna wear that Are you Dr. Freak'n'thing? Do you know what they did that faithful night on Jekyll island? Rockefeller salad Sandy Duncan smiling It's almost as if you always knew what's coming Hark into the wind You can hear that fate is drumming

"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
