lyrics

The Napoleon Mode

Got a future like a fireworks show
That is never gonna to grow old
I've got friends that share a supply of air
In a dungeon dank and cold
Hands in the ice tray always on a hot day
Months in the mirror pass
A silicone shot and you'll forget me not
I'll make my future look like past

I know Napoleon
Got his eyes all up in the sun
I'd risk my sight
For something as hard to see
And waste my life for what cannot be

With fading hope my microscope
Keeps babbling about tomorrow
You know all these dissections and closer inspections
Just cause you pain and sorrow
My ambition makes Madonna shake
All the actors turn and blush
I'm gonna free Miss Liberty
In fame and God we trust

I know Napoleon
He's always waxing 'bout wars he won
He's got a photo book
Like everyone else's
He's a boring bastard
Who got what he wanted

I know You
'Cause I see through
Can't hand me shit
We're two of a kind
Me and I

I know Napoleon
Got his eyes all up in the sun
I'd risk my sight
For something as hard to see
And waste my life for what cannot be

I know
I know
I know
I know

Later, there were 2 nervous system glitches and at least 2 ecstatic dot connecting sessions. Finally, a Need… to sing. ... more
