I'm sitting on the ventriloquist's knee
Allowing his hands somewhere they shouldn't be
My disgraceful quest for immortality
An adventure in an airship inflated by my e-
Go behind the bookcase of the study
I'm stitching up freaks in my secret laboratory
And the subtext is dire and the sex is not on fire
But if beauty is truth that makes you a l-l-liar

The lions are out on the prowl
So lie and I will believe you for now
Uh ah uh ah ah

Cross-dressing cage fighters juggle the bones
Skeletons dancing upon xylophones
As blossom falls from the trees
We'll feast upon the plump juniper berries
The writing's on the wall and it says "redrum"
On this side of the mirror so go fetch me some
I need a volunteer total submission
The Edwardian music-hall magician
Is listening in he'll cut you with his car keys
And I'm sitting on the ventriloquist's knee
My disgraceful quest for immortality
My disgraceful quest for immortality

The lions are out on the prowl
So lie and I will believe you for now
I was raised by wild wolves in the brutal wilderness
And I'll take you for a fool if you help me out of this m-m-m-mess

Cross-dressing cage fighters juggle the bones
Skeletons dancing upon xylophones
As blossom falls from the trees
We'll feast upon the plump juniper berries
Uh ah uh ah ah
