As lonely as a poet on the walls of Jericho
I am loathe to know it that a man without a soul

Improved it
Right through it
Evil kissed with wet lips
Which through me
Illuminati usually pissed
I threw a party that extended God's list
Exciting new flames that my fame would claim for me

Mad Caliban with manners
A passing fad
In excess and in canto
Grown wild
Whole harems defiled
Lady Libertine and her sisters between her
What spread of lies arise when lovers die

Mad Caliban with manners
A passing fad
Crow against the virgin snow

Like a boulder beside her
My dark seed took up root inside her

But Laudanum and soda
Merited a forest of inherited spite
Fleeing grief for foreign maps
Unloading my gun in hot, promiscuous laps
Then shooting swans in a gondola
And there's nothing like a mouthful of Venetian tar

The patron saint of heartache
The world is falling down
I Can't see my world is falling

Everafter can they hear my laughter

Never craft a better bed of disaster

Mad Caliban with manners
A passing fad
In excess and in canto

Mad Caliban with manners
A passing fad
To go **** their mothers
As so....
