Lion

This song is by Eugene McGuinness and appears on the album The Invitation to the Voyage (2012).

I'm sitting on the ventriloquists knee
Allowing his hands somewhere they shouldn't be
My disgraceful quest for immortality
An adventure in an airship inflated by my ego, go
Behind the book case, start to study
I'm stitching up freaks in my secret laboratory
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 lions I will believe you for now

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 red rum
On this side of the mirror so go fetch me some
They need a volunteer, total submission
The Edwardian music-hall magician
Is listening in, he'll cut you with his car keys
I'm also sitting on the ventriloquist's knee
My disgraceful quest for immortality
My disgraceful quest for immortality

The lions are out on the prowl
So lions, I will believe you for now

And I was raised by wild wolves
In the brutal wilderness
And I'll take you for a fool
But if you help me out of this

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
