This kitchen has a king!
This hand, this hand is a cunning little bugger
With a habit of turning every A into a B

Unless it's put to work
There's a twitch twitch twitch and a rash, and an itch
For a job, for a magic job, and a magic diet and exercise plan

There are things I cannot do
I cannot not not turn a skinny little shit
Into a winsome Brit who spent his youth in honest pleasure

For all my wily ways
I cannot not not turn back into the boy
It's a tearful day when a boy must learn his limitations

Take a look at this brochure:
Inject, inject, strip away, peel away
The scars of self abuse with a couple of hours in a private clinic

What have I left in life?
The Knife! the Knife! this knife! this knife!
Every inch, every inch of me will come to know its magic!

    General CommentThis one's gotta be inspired by the Transformation school of D&D magic.

    General CommentIt is about how someone cannot change themselves, using transmogrification as a metaphor.
    "There are things I cannot do
    I cannot not not turn a skinny little shit
    Into a winsome Brit who spent his youth in honest pleasure
    For all my wily ways
    I cannot not not turn back into the boy

    I believe the rest is talking about cosmetic surgery or just a crude way of altering things and how that can change things with "magic"

    "Take a look at this brochure:
    Inject, inject, strip away, peel away
    The scars of self abuse with a couple of hours in a private clinic
    What have I left in life?

    Every inch, every inch of me will come to know its magic!"
