Thomas Arundel, protect the Beagle captain, from your set ideas
Adam from the NHM has fallen
Coulter or Pat Condell?
Well I’m too foxed to know the difference, from Esther and Hamman
So I’m going to live my life with questions, ashamed for Alan Turing

A light you saw when poorly, might not infer rigid ideas about the earth
It might be Sutekh or Glycon or Elphias Levi (or just a bright light)
So now I’m going to walk up to the cross roads and meet a brown eyed, handsome man
And then I’m going to live my life with questions
And try to get beyond him

Oh for a shield of brazen iron
Oh for a raging sea
Oh for my heart’s desire
Big D give it to me
Oh to save just one witch’s life
Oh to do magic spells
I’ll never be anti-life. First do no harm as well
I’m leaving this diary, so everyone can see what love can do to a gentleman
Mr Lusk one day you’ll say that he gave birth, to the 20th century
So Mr D got thrown out of the heavens, just like Lord Rich of Leighs
And then he made a fortune up in Essex. Religion worked out for that git
