Hello, operator give me no-man's land
Collect call to no one at all
Been yelling into an empty closet
To the point of no return (and no deposit)
Fiddlin' and watchin while Rome burns
A roll of the dice, the worm turns

Hello, central give me no-man's land
From a walking waste disposal unit
Transfusion from me'd kill the faint of heart

Alas poor Yorick, I knew me well
But I been killin' my brain cell by cell
It only takes a bullet to make the worm turn
And this one's for you

Toll is belling the signs is telling
Nose is running, feet are smellin'
Currently less than a human wreck
Give me a break, start at the neck

I rule my body from the throne of agony
My conscience and constitution naggin' me
Clock up another tracheotomy
Stab another dagger in the back of me
The dark gods burnt my evil soul
My brittle spirit's turned to coal
I rule my body from the throne of agony
The throne of agony, agony

Chalk up another frozen pizza
Choke up another thousand Marlboros
Anything goes for them ordinary Joes
They'll cut off your face to spite your nose
I don't need to touch their toes to know
I've already reached my all time low
Pacin' ruts in a carpet
Eatin' up the wallpaper, crawlin' the walls
Sick on the ceiling, dead in the head
Shut the shutters, I shoulda stayed in bed

Complaining 'bout my campaign
Against personal decency, I got no excuses
Rules wrapped in barbed wire, laced with busted glass
Yeah, I'm the one who gave the sandwich to Mama Cass

I rule my body from the throne of agony
My conscience, constitution's naggin' me
Clock up another tracheotomy
Stab another dagger in back of me
The dark gods burnt ma evil soul
My brittle spirit's turned to coal
I rule my body from the throne of agony
The throne of agony, the throne of agony, agony

Stoke up and poke up my funeral pyre
And watch my life flicker before your very eyes
With no commercial breaks, no breaks
No breaks (kill me baby)

Pour another glass of liquid clear king alcohol
Drinkin' hard to not remember what I'd just as soon forget
String around the finger, rope around the neck
You always hate the one you love
Time dies when you're having fun
I'm gonna change my name, I'm changin' trains (kill me baby)

I'm on the throne of agony
Conscience is naggin' me
Clock up another tracheotomy
Stab another dagger in back of me
The dark gods burnt my evil soul
My brittle spirit's turned to coal
I rule my body from the throne of agony
I rule my body from the throne of agony
The throne of agony, agony, agony, agony
Agony, agony, agony, agony
