please don't clobber me or force me up a tree you're penitent I see now get down on both knees. i'll meet you halfway we'll turn back to each other put the strap to me across your bended knees I bet you can't conceive of things you cannot see. I'm the dark shade to your rear I'm the macaw in your ear I'm the parish priest and I'm creeping up behind you. another grey man, with power in his stride. he dresses like a saint and then goes marching by. i'll meet you halfway we'll turn back to each other. I'm the dark shape to your rear I'm the macaw in your ear I'm the parish priest and I'm creeping up behind you. I'm the conscience that you fear I'm the words you cannot you hear. I'm the parish priest and I'm creeping up behind you. we eat our young. we tried and failed.

i am the magic child youll feel good when I smile you try to pin on me what i cant peg on you i am a brick tied to your legs you can feel me tugging you down down down i am a building in flames locked from the outside it's a shame, it is it is it is and all I hear are lies who are you kidding? youre kidding me. theyre pounding on your car youre feather (and youre tarred) these parrots sure can talk these parrots sure can talk i feel like cutting in line i feel like its time to lock the doors and step outside wash our hands and say goodbye cuz all I hear are lies. who are we kidding? youre kidding me.

I met the second coming he pulled a gun on me and I sent his ass running to the grave I am a diviner and that electric shaman I put a hex on him and pull the caustic diamond from his forehead I am a diviner I plucked a lot of chickens I'll pull the plug on you and empty out what thickens In my garden I am a diviner I hear the trumpets blaring of mariachi bands or is it just the end of the Mormon world I am a diviner a pack of statisticians chase me home from school they pull me all to pieces oh my god I am a diviner they chase me to the metro and pull me down the stairs they fill my head with number and useless garbage I am a diviner.

I put the sponges to your head. please lie calmly on the bed. now zip 'em up and turn around youre only happy when im down. i thought I had you. whered you go?

youre just a ghost youve been rattling my chain too long shadow people six billion ghosts waiting for your eyes to close shadow people
