  • 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 Writer/s: John Grant
