❝ I plot your rubric scarab, I steal your satellite
I want your wife to be my baby tonight
I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
Your mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
Pay me I’ll be your surgeon, I’d like to pick your brains
Capture you, Inject you, leave you kneeling in the rain
I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
Your mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’d like your blue eyed horseshoe, I’d like your emerald horny toad
I’d like to do it to your daughter on a dirt road
And then I’d spend your ransom money, but still I’d keep your sheep
I’d peel the mask your wearing, and then rob you of your sleep
I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
Your mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil ❞

❝ Well I’ve opened up my veins too many times
And the poison’s in my heart and in my mind
Poison’s in my bloodstream
Poison’s in my pride
I’m after rebellion
I’ll settle for lies
Is it any wonder that my mind’s on fire
Imprisoned by the thoughts of what to do
Is it any wonder that my joke’s an iron
And the joke’s on you
Experiments that failed too many times
Transformations that were too hard to find
Poison’s in my bloodstream
Poison’s in my pride
I’m after rebellion
I’ll settle for lies
Yes I know the secrets of the iron and mind
They’re trinity acts, a mineral fire
Yes I know the secrets of the circuitry mind
It’s a flaming wonder telepath
Well I’ve opened up my veins too many times
And the poison’s in my heart and in my mind
Poison’s in my bloodstream
Poison’s in my pride
I’m after rebellion
I’ll settle for lies
Is it any wonder that my mind’s on fire
Imprisoned by the thoughts of what to do
Is it any wonder that my joke’s an iron
And the joke’s on you ❞

Enjoy!
