After the ritual suicide of Mr Mickey Mouse
On his outrageous throne of blood in Cinderella's House
On the blue suburban line I met a careless god
Past the pines by the glassy meadow
Where the coaches jerk a little

The birdcatcher of Hades took his net of flesh and bone
The headless horse was talking on the kitten's
Telephone
In the house of horrors I had recently burnt down

It was a stormy night for the tartan babes on a rocky
Mountain track
When a Bonnie Prince Charlie car commercial went
Shooting back
And the cast members at Disneyland were all electric
With anger
I could just about hear my Walkman playing Mantovani
Through the thunder

The birdcatcher of Hades with his book of gold and

Straw
Eros lends Massacre assistance with the saw
First blood of little girls, a cupboard where you hide
Pause at Charlie Chaplin's fountain
Climb across a cardboard mountain

Dr Selbert Lanolin and his troope of chimpanzees
Who plan to take the world over with a television
Series
Have found the gene responsible for Scientology

It was a stormy night for the tartan babes on a rocky
Mountain track
When a Bonnie Prince Charlie car commercial went
Shooting back
And the cast members at Disneyland were all electric
With anger
I could just about hear my Walkman playing Mantovani
Through the thunder
