Lyrics

I'm a Lexicon Devil with a battered brain

Looking for the future, world's my aim

So gimme gimme your hands, gimme gimme your minds

Gimme gimme this, gimme gimme that


I want toy tin soldiers that can push and shove

I want gunboy rovers that'll wreck this club

I'll build you up and level your heads

We'll run it my way cold men and politics dead...


I'll get silver guns to drip old blood

Let's give this established joke a shove

We're gonna wreak havoc on this rancid mill

I'm searchin' for something even if I'm killed...


Empty out your pockets, you don't need their change

I'm giving you the power to rearrange

Together we'll run to the highest prop

Tear it down and let it drop...away...
