lyrics

A U T O D A F E

MY MASTERCLASS IN FAILURE WILL WIN NO AWARDS
BUT AT LEAST I CAN LAUGH AT SUCH A LOWLY FARCE
SO WHY AM I THE ENEMY? THE WRETCH IN THE DOCK?
REPENTING THE BELIEFS OF SOMEONE ELSE'S CREED?

FATE WRITES THE SCRIPT BUT I DO MY BEST TO SING ALONG
BEAUTY OF THE WORLD! THE PARAGON OF ANIMALS!
I FILL THE MARGIN WITH THE SCRIBBLES OF MY FANTASIES
ADMINISTER THE DOSE! TAKE ME TO ARCADIA

THE TERRITORY OF TRAGEDY IS WHERE I EXCEL
DEVOTION TO HOPE BRINGS A HUMANISED HELL

I DON'T HAVE THE STRENGTH TO RESIGN OR BE ENRAGED

DANCING A JIG WITH SAINT AUGUSTINE
HAND ME DOWN MY SANBENITO
