lyrics

YOU EAGER, EAGER BOY
YOU COULD AT LEAST APPRECIATE
THE COST OF ALL THE SILK YOU TOSEED ON THE FLOOR
AND WHILE I’M CHARMED BY YOUR HOMERUN ADMISSIONS
THERE ARE POSITIONS IT SEEMS YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE
MAYBE YOU NEED TO BE BEATEN UP A BIT
GET YOU ANGRY LIKE THE REST OF THEM

WHEN YOU’RE EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE
WHEN YOU’RE THE BRAINS AND THE SEX
YOU HAVE A SIGNIFICANT INFLUENCE ON WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
IT’S EASY TO DRAW WHO’S IN CHARGE
AND SORRY, THAT LOVE SEAT’S ELECTRIC
THE ONLY STRINGS ATTACHED FOR ME
ARE TO YOUR HANDS, YOU HEAD, YOUR FEET AND YOUR PRICK

It’s your typical scoundrel’s estate
Like the man, it tries to intimidate
Long driveway, dog, a gate, gargoyles, and a pool

A bone will postpone an attack

And I still have a key to the back
We’ll go together at eight when he has his cognac and cigar

He’ll be ‘reading’ in the billiards room
With a floosie bent over the table

It’s easier sneaking up when the belt is undone
Pick a drawer, there’s a revolver in every one

Been sick too long to be immunized
It’s justice if it’s justified
And soon enough the law is gonna catch up

We’ll make love in front of the bastard while he’s tied up

Clear the safe, light a fire, and go to the Hilton for lunch

A bat to the mistress’s skull as I gasp at the crunch

Stagger the drops, Bamboozle the cops, it turns out that nobody cares at the end of the day

Takes a crime to get that kind of criminal out of the way

… GET YOURSELF A SHINE AND A SHAVE
IT’S BETTER TO LOOK AT ODDS WITH HOW WE BEHAVE
WITH ALL THESE TREASURES TO FIND AND FILCH AND FUCK
LOOK GOOD WHILE YOU’RE LIFTING THE LID OFF THE TRUNK
AND ANY FOOL CAN SURVIVE A WAR
BUT WHO CAN SAY THEY MADE A PARTY OF DODGING THE ARROWS

MY EAGER, EAGER BOY, I’M LIKE YOU
NOBODY CHOSE THIS LIFE FOR ME
I WRITE MY OWN STORY

WE’RE GODS OF OUR OWN STORY
