Rigid license severity
To drain the cup of misery
Put dirty water in their tea
Join them to the armies

What do the acts do they perform
In institution uniform
Pay in the price to pay for day
To spill or fritter away

Loosefish bad egg sad lot scapegrace
All my magnitude stops the irons entering my soul
Here I stand and I can and I like it

Rigid license severity
To drain the cup of misery
Put dirty water in their tea
Join them to the armies

Rigid license severity
Graceless is the place to be
To drain the cup of misery
To the dregs the only place to be

I'm a man seeing if I can be a bigger man
And be the big world holder
And wear it on my shoulder
Confiscate all the hearts and minds of all human kind
And give a daring operation
To deflect all life's afflictions

Nastiness disease squandermania prevails
Loosefish bad egg sad lot scapegrace
Here I stand and I can and I like it
To have no being be the null and void
To be no more leave no rack behind
So I dissolve away
So to be such stuff as dreams are made

Rigid license severity
Graceless is the place to be
To drain the cup of misery
To the dregs the only place to be

Nastiness and diseases will
Choose me any path it pleases
I don't sleep I die
My bed is always closing in on me
I desolve

Void
Vacuum
Goosegash

Loosefish

I will stake all my pride against my suicide
And wear upon my shoulder
The mark of a good soldier
Malice having the itchy palm
With a sparing hand
Making ducks and drakes of evil
With a lesser form of people

I'm a man seeing if I can be a bigger man
And be the big world holder
And wear it on my shoulder
Confiscate all the hearts and minds of all human kind
And give a daring operation
To deflect all life's afflictions

I will stake all my pride against my suicide
And wear upon my shoulder
The mark of a good soldier
Malice having the itchy palm
With a sparing hand
Making ducks and drakes of evil
With a lesser form of people
