Outsider
You see me you hear me
There are millions who think just like
Me

Creepy
Crawling
What a wonderful world
A loose door jam a light left on

The oldest national lottery
Enter Johnny Go Darkly
Come to spoil my party
Smell of faeces lingers

Echo of light fingers
Cold comfort blankets
Steeped in creeping anger
Flatfoot comes poking

Compounding my misery
Grinding pestle and mortar
Adding insult to injury
If only this, if only that,

If only in my guts
See my life before my eyes
Trampled underfoot
Creepy crawling

All the creeps go creepy crawling
Same thing every night
How can stealing candy from a
Baby

Seem alright?
What a wonderful world
Corvino, carrion crow
Skulking with his mobile

Slippery peat-bog eyes
Stick-on smiley smile
Small print like quicksand
Not a wooden leg to stand on

Sinking through my stomach
The ground beneath me gone
Free-fall, call Ophelia
Clutching at straw

Mixed with bloody feathers
From scruff of neck of crow
Johnny go! Johnny gone!
Too much drink in your

Tum-tum-tum
See this finger, see this thumb
See this fist and watch it come
Creepy crawling

All the creeps go creepy crawling
Same thing every night

How can stealing candy from a
Baby
Seem alright?
What a wonderful world
