lyrics

Yours is not to reason why
When they bump into the night
Staging such a dreadful fright
Breathing flaming skulls of shite

Gunny sacks of stolen light
Clanging kaw kaw drums they fight
Bagman of an ancient rite
Gorging on a dead birthright

Small Man of distorted height
Crashing from a cinder kite
Molten glass and black nitrite
Shadows bursting out of sight

Tidal Waves/tremendous heights
Wash away this pungent plight
Always there’s a desperate fury just before the end

He’s just a tinsel man (3x)

Yours is not to reason why
When they bump into the night
Breathing flaming skulls of shite
Gorging on a dead birthright

Tidal waves tremendous heights
Wash away this pungent plight
Always there’s a desperate fury just beforethe end

He’s just a tinsel man (3x)
With an explosive can
He’s just a tinsel man
With an explosive can
He’s just a tinsel man
With an explosive can
