Lyrics

I've got the answers to all of your questions

If you've got the money to pay me in gold

I will be living in old Monte Carlo

And you will be reading the secrets I've sold


Daggers and contacts and bright shiny Limo's

I've got a watch that turns into a lifeboat

Glimmering nightgowns and poisonous cobras

Silencer under the heel of my shoe


The Elegance of China, they sent her to lie here on her back

But as she deeply moves me, she'd rather shoot me in my tracks!


And while a Middle Asian lady, she really came as no surprise

But I still did destroy her. And I will smash Halo of Flies!


I crossed the ocean where no one could see

And I put a time-bomb in your submarine

Goodbye to old friends, the secret's at hand

With phony note papers and counterfeit plans

You never will understand
