row row your boat gently down the stream o masters of the universe won’t you please reveal

the secrets of The Octopus inside me which i feel clawing who’s been waiting at my door forever patiently upon the lips of your incarnation who is the one to spin me your remedy to sing me your melody in homage of your industry in debt with each huzzah that’s paid in its entirety with teardrops from the stars catch them catch them holy waters soothe the tears of jet set troubles that set the feet of every martyr upon the road to fame and paradise onward onward not forsaken are you the man to fuck with the enemy grant me gold and grant me favour crown a man of humble origins that’s adept at fitting in from within unholy skin sing along to the minion’s song emerging from the jaws of each lion treading on in a far constellation riding away on the waves of oblivion sing along to the minion’s song emerging from the jaws of each lion treading on in a far constellation riding away on the waves of oblivion oblivion oblivion oblivion ice age cometh let the fanfares bloweth can’t shake the feeling been living on borrowed time today’s revealing right before my very eyes and off to the cold icy palace with the church and the office i’m just a helpless apprentice and i’m lost in the darkness can’t you tell that you’ve been hypnotised by a magic spell we did a runner from the diner now who will pay the tithe so dry your eyes why the surprise with the lathe and the prism in the frozen museum i’m just a helpless apprentice and i’m lost in the darkness ladies and gentlemen step right up for the end of the world climb aboard the wave to somewhere you ain’t never been and in a world of make believe i’m the emperor and champion of sheer suicide hear me when i say that i was brought to life upon the wave i’m gonna catch a ride and see what i can see i’m gonna climb inside of my time machine into another dimension from the first to the last the wave is waiting for the rubies and diamonds that are slipping through your fingers in the glinting of an eye i’m just a thought vibrating and i’m riding on high now that the wave is breaking now that the future’s waiting i’m gonna step inside and take a ride into another dimension oh yeah In the sinews of eternity that fortune spins entwined within the DNA that throbs beneath its skin you’ll fit so perfectly in i’ll never let you go well i dressed you in your uniform you’ll understand right from the moment you were born a minion at my command and once you hold my hand i’ll never let you go from my arms on a drip feed of euphoria that’s laid to waste and feeding on the emptiness residing in the human race and when we embrace i’ll never let you go from my arms and once you hold my hand i’ll never let you go jagged and broken look at your pieces split every nation of insect colonies save one to be destroyed and one to be begun let the weaker bend to the will of the strong well you followed the swarm right out into space and let all the buzz right out of this place send some to the south you know you’ll want to send one to the north you’ll send one to each house of hand to mouth and of humans and spawn to be born and all i know and ever see are insects crawling over me predating on their magic powers that radiate before their fingers and though they try to suck me dry they’ll never manage to consume my feeling of overjoy overjoy come let the masters feed in the fullness of time let the fuckers come and never come again they’re hunting everyone left from the planet of men time enough to prepare and make you look make you stare won’t you deal me in and let empires fall got me some others to call who can offer me danger but don’t take it personal but you live in the echo of a screaming jet in the furnace of each cigarette with penitence and regret around your neck like a golden chain like an aching numbed with novocaine well wouldn’t you like to get away and ride white horses far away now they’re chasing away and leaving the trace of your things rusting away somewhere just under your skin is this the way out let summer begin and brighten your sky just let it be as you’d like just cross your heart and hope to day but don’t take it personal cause we live in the eye of the maelstrom we’re down in the valley where the shadow’s long well don’t you know that we belong somewhere over the rainbow in the wreckage of a ufo that glitters in the ocean spray ride them up into the milkyway now they’re chasing away excellent hungry eyes all alone in rainbow skies of glass and stone dipped into the acid test so sharply dressed well i would turn disciple and testify in the whore crucible zeroed and hungry for more gotta get some only the sharpest of claws get to hold on with leisure time and bonuses cruising over the horizon well that ship is never late chastisement with a velvet touch don’t hurt too much well i would turn disciple and testify in the diamond spyhole always still hungry for more gonna get some only the sharpest of claws gets to hold on to nothing when one man bleeds on another man’s throne and one man reaps what another has sown on unknown seas would the business sink you down to an all time low o rose thou art sick from the invisible worm that flies in the night in the howling storm has found out thy bed of crimson joy and his dark secret love does thy life destroy I’m gonna take a trip to a distant sun leave this planet far behind and travel the road to kingdom come got a universe to sail across now i’ve just begun and stretching out ahead of me promised to eternal skies to travel distant galaxies got a universe to sail across like a jet black sea travelling faster than light is the only way to be one vehicle one human being slip the engine to overdrive and i’m faster than a laser beam got a universe to sail across till the day i die and i’m riding high travelling faster than light is the only way to be is the only possibility to be truly free and i know that you set the control for the heart of the sun from out of the vortex and into the big time gotta get me a facefull of oblivion from under the wheels of the movers and shakers well this could be your lucky day impatient boys down impatient girls down keep searching on better go get a gun to stay afloat on an ocean of sex and money well this could be your lucky day impatient you’d better bow down over the edge of devotion well this could be your lucky day some men would seek of all the treasures untold crave things that gleamed and all the riches and gold that a man could need more than money to choke on consumed by greed and a hungry man must feed they’d hunt you down so run well ha ha ha how did we end up here some women who need opulence in this world whore themselves through for all the diamonds and pearls that a woman needs more than honour to choke on in word and deed to let their animal feed they’d hunt you down so run ha ha ha just where do we go from here? thesis and antithesis go destroy your opposite dividing and conquering worked your fingers to the bone bring the creatures two by two money makers to the sword raised an empire there to leave standing for a thousand years but who put the willing in their armies who put the bloodlust in their servitude who put the flame throwers on the playground who turned the children into soldiers to follow you are you waiting for the fall well isn’t it about time it’s so inevitable you’ve come here with nothing at all fire and brimstone preacher man know that holy scripture say eat alive the children and sail their souls away into the wilderness into virgin skulls and bones master of the unknown world until the day you die well who let corruption in the heartland who are the killers in sheep’s clothing who wait to proclaim each new conversion hail each seizure and those who follow you you’ll leave here with nothing at all crimson velvet from my arm slowly seeping swirling down a voice is speaking please be calm so deeply sleeping cause ignorance is bliss from a hole i’m leaking with a red alarm my heart is slowly beating god keeps us safe from harm and just look i’m leaking moments my blackest darkest moments secrets i’m releasing outwards please don’t become my dirty traitors everyone’s made errors of judgement everyone’s gone and made mistakes everyone’s got a hidden secret everyone’s done things they later regret a big fuck-off hollywood and the paradox of tolerance the engineering of consent an america for americans preserved in amber like genes for dinosaurs the dreams of the powerless death to hollywood there’s a big fuck-off Hollywood and a church built by slaves where all glitters and twinkles and hungry are all the whores that you made where the weather’s fine and dark clouds all gather for oscars and facelifts i came alive in a burst of heavenly light climbed up the ropes to stars cascaded in their fiery blast lost in the vast wilderness drifting and alone naively in ignorance of woe and born running through infinite skies hold on i’m coming though fire and ice burn strong in the devil inside of you well what’s new now is the time to decide just who do you want to become hold your head up to the sky to the chapel on high down to your bone to your core what would you stand for for forever and more forever and more is an open door to step right through to where have you gone have you found yourself where you once started from and raising your fist at the sun you said don’t make me come up there my fiery one with gunships and valkyries all geared up to go well i know that shangri-la’s not so far from here so reach for the stars and you might grab one there’s supernovas left to ride on they all dive right into you and taste like new well now is the time to decide just who do you want to become hold your head up to the sky to the chapel on high down to your bone to your core what would you stand for for forever and more forever and more is an open door to step right through
