Cherub blown apart
Baby's in the bed
Sit around and mope
Better not

Can't be long from me
Here they linger
Probably in danger
Read it on a flyer
Glisten on the burner

King shows anger, "Reign, man!"
He will deal with it later, send them away

Send them away then
Not gonna spank you
And we thank you from all of our hearts
Send them away then
They're developing rashes
Down on the ashes
Of after the body parts
Visiting down there
Trying to cling there
It don't mean a thing there

Warlock bought her
Animal's little daughter
Smiling in spite that she's a spy
While she's singing, an insect stinging
Glowing, winging by

If this one will call you like a tide
It can only breed alone
So alone it flies
To enslave you by the night
You can only weep alone
I'll name you the flame that cries

Yeah, we did it
We brought you this ready
Takes a quick one to find the light
High speed child in motion
And you can't come along for the ride

Yeah, we made it
With a pitchfork and machete
Wow, that's amazing, can I try?
No dangerous weather is approaching
And we wouldn't want you to slide

Visiting down there
Trying to cling there
It don't mean a thing there
