A Virus and a Viper

from by Brooks Strause

lyrics

I’ve been a high psychoanalyst
I’ve been a low romanticizing skunk
I’ve been a guest in formal dress at grand pissing contests
I sank every ship that ever was worth being sunk

You want me to be a cross between the Marquis de Sade and the Pied Piper
You want it known, my nature shown as the offspring of a virus and a viper

I’ve been a blunt, unsound scientist
I’ve been a sharp, dark-side leaning drunk
I’ve been a mess with a pesky messiah complex
I thought every thought that ever was worth being thunk

You want me to be a cross between the Marquis de Sade and the Pied Piper
You want it known, my nature shown as the offspring of a virus and a viper

I’ve have no interest in being an archetype or a myth
I am what I am, a scam and a force not to be reckoned with
Clear the trees and build a highway; call it the Avenue of Dissension
Pave it with what looks like gold, but actually is only good intentions
