Was he badly mistaken or guided
As he wondered his valley built in silence
He'd cover his face to speak as he chewed off his finger, to the bone
The haze of his coloured days
That march of content as his dignity splits to unveil
His bitter sweetness


The town would shudder and stare
At his presence with a single glare
As he makes his way through
The local square
And he says to them
'Your a broken fence, in the yard of annoyance'
'Your a broken fence, in the yard of annoyance'
Annoyance


Hang the cyst
Hang the cyst
Hang the cyst


The first time in pace or in math
Was at the sight of his wilting noose
And the chance will soon reduce to an angry silence
He escaped in the shock of the snap
His wonderful vanishing act
Was a spectacle but not what anyone expected
The route was planned as much as the broachpin dagger
The route was planned as much as the broachpin dagger


Catch the cyst
Catch the cyst
Catch the cyst
Catch the cyst

    General CommentSounds like a 17th century hanging in which the criminal isn't remorseful until he actually sees the noose at which point it is clearly too late. My favorite parts are the lines "You're a broken fence in the yard of annoyance" and "the chance will soon reduce to an angry silence" jeez, 21st century poets these guys are!

    Song Meaning"Cyst" was a big criminal in the Dark Ages. He was sentenced to death. The town who was watching starts to sing "Hang the cyst". But when he would just be executed, he escaped ("He escaped in the shock of the snap.
    His wonderful vanishing act was a spectacle, but not what anyone expected.") very quickly and then the music ends with the whole town singing "Catch the cyst".

    His nickname was Cyst because he only causes trouble to the city, like a cancer causes problems for the individual.
