In the cities of men they say he fell into sin,
With whores and gambling dens, became a slave to his sense.
I suss that everyone knows he changed his last name to Jones.
Some believe that his ghost still haunts his house on the coast

come on come on come on come on
(come on come on come on come on)

At his first trial it was said that there were lumps on his head
From brutal life as a child and growing up in the wild,
That his first sight of a train began to drive him insane,
That the strain was too great, I mean he was raised by apes.


come on come on come on come on
(come on come on come on come on)

As a child he'd survived, sharp senses kept him alive,
Had no time to sit down, or think about life.
In the cities of man, everyone follows the plan.
An ape can't understand what walls do.

He couldn't feel the air though his clothes, his shoes deformed his toes, they made him shave his face, his head ached, there wasn't any space, they say he turned to drink from the pain, that he was pretty normal 'til then.
His hands were far too bent from the vines to handle silverwars, they say at least three doctors were maimed explaining underwear, they say he slept in trees every night 'cause it was only there that he was quiet.

As a child he'd survived, sharp senses kept him alive,
Had no time to sit down, or think about life.
In the cities of man, everyone follows the plan.
An ape can't understand what walls do.

And now drunk and in pain, he was enraged by the rain,
And now truly insane he killed a child
In a horrible way that would've been out of place in the cities of men but not a...

come on come on come on come on
(come on come on come on come on)
