Hiding in the doorway,
Of a room with mirrored walls,
Boisterous laughter rings through the room,
As all eyes fall onto the narrator
He creeps up from behind
A messenger who does not know,
The meaning of his words,
Or their importance,
Go show your friends,
I know how this works,

Public announcement in a noisy room,
Discovery made of what is now past,
Whispering in the hallway,
Our favorite messenger is certainly a good reader

Hyenas in the wilting garden,
Collapsing pillars in the temple,
Intruders in the laboratory,
Force yourself in,
As it comes crashing down

The knife is in the endless sea of her belly,
Crop circles adorn her stomach,
She's uninspired with mechanical utterences,
Of false simplicities,
Sucking on the hemlock,
Tell me I'm wrong,
I dare you,
The mutant groans with pleasure

And they all laughed,
Well, don't expect me to blush,
Don't expect me to cry,
I meant what I said,
And I feel no guilt

Hyenas in the wilting garden,
Collapsing pillars in the temple,
Intruders in the laboratory,
Force yourself in,
As it comes crashing down

Rummaging raccoons in the private dumpster,
Extracting anything of importance,
I'm glad to have entertained you,
I hope you all had a good laugh

Hyenas in the wilting garden,
Collapsing pillars in the temple,
Intruders in the laboratory,
The empire is burning,
Burning,
And Nero just tilts his head back,
And he laughs,
And Nero just tilts his head back,
And he laughs
