a dirty deed is brewing
like ivy overgrowing
the scissors poised and ready
and she said that she was going

and a thousand years of waiting
they put it all in writing
she pricked her finger for it
but she's not cooperating

oh i swear by the river styx
thats where i am fixed

and i think the time is nearing
i think i might be thawing
if only i were certain
that my temperature weren't falling

and the tourists who've been coming
from my body sawing
pieces for exhibits
where impressive crowds are drawing

oh i swear by the river styx
thats where i am fixed

and if i had the patience and i had the money
and i had the humor and i had the offer
and the space and the time and the talent
and i had the power and i had the reason
and the virtue and i had the cunning
and i had the status and i had the wisdom
and i had the audience and the admission
and i had the method and i had the quiet
and i had the motive and the story
and i had the money and i had the time

then i just might try

if only i could prove it
if only i weren't stupid
if only i could torture
all the people who can do it

and through the final hour
i am destined to devour
the thousand hours of inspiration
slowly growing sour

and if i had an offer to be better
i'd decline

and if that were more awful to consider
i'd be fine

and if it were all my fault
that i'm bitter

and i've pined and i've regretted
that i aided and abetted
this end and if it isn't
i should probably forget it

and the contract's in the fire
i am starting to feel tired
i choke that i'm forgiven
but i've always been a liar

and i had an offer to better
i'd decline

and if that were more awful to consider
i'd be fine

and if it were all my fault
that i'm bitter

    Song MeaningI could be way off, but I feel that the demo version of this song reflects frustruation with the music industry and not being able to "make it" as a start for whatever reasons.
