little green men follow us from town to town
speaking in riddles of digital sound
hiding in the shadow of a subway train
trying to get to heaven with a worm in his brain

where is the hurdy gurdy man going now
playing such apocalyptic sounds sounds sounds

we are the magical band of fools
you know it ain't easy
you know it ain't easy

a horrific dirge ringing in my ears
it seems we've fool ourselves baby for oh so many years
living in the trunk of a hollow tree
trying to get to heaven with a fatal disease

where is the hurdy gurdy man going now
playing such apocalyptic sounds sounds sounds

we are the magical band of fools baby
we are the magical band of fools
you know it ain't easy
you know it ain't easy

bloodletting
hypnotists
repeat after me
only fools believe they won't get fooled again

vampires
organ grinders
in my youth i was bitten by a girl with a rabbit's tooth

oh what's a fool
oh what's a fool to do
to do

oh what's a fool
oh what's a fool to do
to do

we are the magical band of fools baby
we are the magical band of fools
you know it ain't easy
you know it ain't easy

bloodletting
hypnotists
repeat after me
only fools believe they won't get fooled again

vampires
organ grinders
in my youth i was bitten by a girl with a rabbit's tooth

bloodletting
hypnotists
repeat after me
only fools believe they won't get fooled again

vampires
organ grinders
in my youth i was bitten by a girl with a rabbit's tooth

    General Commentas all of Dog Fashion Disco's lyrics, these are just amazing. I think a lot of the meaning of the song can be read in the line:
    "only fools believe they won't get fooled again"

    this is my absolute favourite song of theirs and it's a shame no one has commented so far ^^

    General CommentI think this might be in danger of being the best song ever

    General CommentMaybe not the entire picture, but from what I see in the lyrics it states a couple things.
    I think it says that they've pretty much got cult status, the little green men may refer to the collection of rabid fans that go to great lengths to see them live over and over.

    Only fools believe they won't get fooled again, referring to themselves as fools... I think that may be related to record dealings. At the time they switched labels.

    General CommentCool song. Seems to be just about morbidity in general, probably no real meaning to it, just an idea or concept about a band. I think it's "rabid tooth" though, not "rabbit's tooth." Anyone know if the "organ grinders" line is a reference to the Manson song "Organ Grinder?" Perhaps just a nod to Manson?
