the human gargoyle gazes down from notre damn
old kilbey old stargazer old bastard face from outta space
look at ‘im darlin’ its that fucking kilbey
yeah life dealing to me from bottom of the deck
yeah i still manage to sing a brand new song
oh man you got it easy kilbey
no famine no plague no war on vandals
no disaster befalleth thee
who is thy enemy but me….?
i face a foe whose stronger than just my stupid self
you cant kill it with a shot or a knife
insidious perfidious ubiquitous
almost invisible almost no smell
almost undetectable you think
almost you think
you almost think
so hard to fight you : where are you…?
i am everywhere
what do you want from us?
everything you have
what it is you demand?
you know what i demand
yes i know
you demand to be fed
you demand mornings you demand afternoons
you demand children you demand happiness
you demand dignity you demand pride
you demand money you demand lies
you demand theft you demand anger
you demand sickness you demand chaos
i hate you
i hate you evil spirit
i hate you i always hated you
yeah i seen your work everywhere all my life
i seen your wreckage
i seen your tragic trail as you lurch through humanity
i seen the poor fuckers you sucked dry
i seen the poor suckers you fucked over
where do you live , alcoholic spirit?
i live somewhere between the body and the mind
you cannot stop me with hatred
you cannot stop me with fury
you cannot stop me with appeals to reason
you cannot get your hands round my neck
i am elusive i am tricky i am a liar
i am a destroyer i am almost unstoppable
i claim who i choose and i send ’em down until you lose
i take youth i take health i take wealth i take friends i take all
what can i do
oh what can i do?
you can do nothing
even in fighting me you give me strength
i pick up momentum every time you rail against me
i laugh at your tears
i laugh at your torment
and i get bigger and i get stronger
and i burn like a blaze inside
and i consume your lives
and i consume your love
and i burn until there is nothing left
and i move on
on and on and on
and no one
NO ONE ,KILBEY , LEAST OF ALL YOU, WILL EVER STOP ME …..
yeah but i gotta keep trying, spirit
i gotta keep trying…….
