dear friend karnivale
and confidant kabaret
among us pooled 14 knives
and to me what did they say?
oh i being me
being a real maudlin jack - they says
'go to m'ladies foxskin chambers
with a rook and a pack'
they says 'go to m'ladies foxskin chambers
with an axe and a rack'

oh novella!
the psychedelia,
it dovetails and it spirals
'hind my eyes

i's that glass-eyed knifeman
bleeding scarlet on your chipped tile!

i's that man with heartbreaker
in the back
a rook and a pack,
an axe and a rack!

well just then karnivale, kabaret
and a coupla devilish crooks
were hummin on the corner
i come out cut and hooked
'well she looked me in the eye
i's buzzin
i's aflame
she see my ginger antonym
and she a charlatan liar

then i heard a crash
i heard a crash
oh! raven you got me
yes raven you got me
oh yeah!

well he threw me a spade
so i struck him
i struck him
and i's burnin
i's aflame
i's hummin
i's buzzin
oh yeah,
oh yeah

oh ascension, ascension
don't call me by my first name
my first name
i's burnin
i's aflame
i's hummin
i's hummin

Oh i heard a crash
i heard a crash
i heard a crash
so I
I struck him
I struck him
