    Lyrics

    Emotion drains
    Like the contents of a cooler
    My thorax is Styrofoam

    I'm a cheap spent shell
    And a bio hazard
    Grind me up then mail me away

    Maybe transmogrified
    I'll be satisfied
    That finally at long last I'm harmless

    It is simply so
    It's my chemical makeup
    I slough it off every 28 days

    So raise your hand
    And ask yourself a question
    But make it the powerful one

    And if you answer by rote
    And pap comes from your throat
    Just tidy up and think of me in pieces

    Yeah, the lousy poet in me can't lie no more
    And the warrior in me
    Has gone and died before
    And that hard, handsome Olympian
    Was forced to retire

    So dig out the films
    And all those yellowed clippings
    Do them up then stash them for good

    Then raise your hand
    And ask yourself a question
    But make it the powerful one
