In the tradition of my forebears
I keep things outta sight
Rearrange the tune into a simpler time

Subversive wishing
I pull the venetians
You gotta know respect, pontificates the lump above the bloody deck

Lieutenant fission, I run the dish here
Cure me like meat
Become to me a vessel of a continental spring

In the tradition of my forebears
The pink lays in the tub
I see the spectre silent as I shrug him off

Lethargic ointment
Contain me tightly
Within a certain frame, A lovers name to crane my eyes delightfully

On the condition,
That you don't leave, dear
A diesel powered ride, will keep us side by side into the night

In the tradition of my forebears,
I'll keep this in my mind,
Barricade, away to breathe another time
