about

lyrics

All dressed up in LEDs
Tell me, what do you want to be
When you grow up?

(glow up!)

GROW UP!


You could be a shrimpimp at a prawnshop
With your pump boots and your flattop
With your broombox and your ragtop
You got soapscum rocking in a headlock

While the Tantric Tarantulas
Be Nibbling at the Nebulas,
The Nipples of the Nephilim,
You know that I grew up with them?
Eh?
You know that I grew up with them?
You know that I grew up?

If I should throw ^UP^ my dreams
I'd come vDOWNv with the Flew
And with my feet upon the ground
learned things I never knew
things I never do


Or you could be a Lobster Mobster with a krill grill.
"Put your money where your mouth is with your ill will."
I've got a grill full of krill, skrilla and dough.
"You're worth your weight in gold in the Glasgow flow."
Skrilla by the pound, doe by the pence,
Pensively impounding every goddamn ounce of sense!
"You swore you'd never swear again!"
Well, that's the way it goes my friend.


If I should throw ^UP^ my dreams
I'd come vDOWNv with the Flew
And with my feet upon the ground
Learned things I never knew
Things I never do

(All right, hang in there
I’ve got this other verse too
real focken tongue-twister this one
hang in there)

Roller derby topsy-turvy roller-coaster ride
hocus-pocus hokey pokey Buddha-pesticide:
The rhyme dictates the reason; the meter rules the tide.
"How do I decide what is hiding in my mind?"
Mariachi marionettes, caffeine and cigarettes,
Rorschach cave-art in foam around the rim.
"If you're drowning in your cup, then you better learn to swim."
That's why I prefer drinking beer to drinking gin.
Foam around the rim.
Foam around the rim.

You know that I grew up with them?
You know that I grew up?
