Overlord

Overlord - The Brand New Panic

It's a bulging bloated orb with a molten core

Ready to explode dribble down your chin

Ruining these baby blue blue jeans

But you've made up your mind

You're going to take a bite

No matter what it does to me

So go ahead dig in

Enjoy the subtle flavors

Of my brand new panic

My brand new panic

It's a preteen playground war

Between knife-fighting hordes

These amateur surgeons tremble like virgins

Fumbling and flailing to the bitter end

Clumsy & unnerving

Yet hardly noteworthy

Doubtlessly embarrassing

In a pantomime reflective

Of my own polemic

With my brand new panic

My brand new panic

But is it wrong

To make yourself go mad

To write a song?

To put Psychosis on the couch

And let it talk?

To offer sympathy

And crib the monologue

Of my brand new panic?

Still there's no sexual metaphor

Permitted on this shore

Our annual retreat

Signs posted the beach

All along the Anhedonian Sea read:

'Every single thing is concave or convex

And you'd better get used to it!'

And all my money's wasted

On uptight vacations

With my brand new panic

My brand new panic

And who knows where we'll go

When I cede all control

To the more charming half of me?

In lieu of flowers

Give in memory of me

c/o my brand new panic

My brand new panic

My brand new panic

My brand new panic
