  1. TYRANNY OF BEAUTY

Lyrics

Drawn and quartered
Spread out on the street
I was ordered to forfeit my seat
Forty lashes for the quality i lack
The last rejection
hit me harder than a heart attack

Now i'm just here
killin time, stayin cool, keepin calm
like a walkin time bomb
Got my gun
i'm ready to stage a one-man revolution
Start a war, strike a blow
against the tyranny of beauty

Sensuality
was the only place to go
Young and beautiful
was the star of my show - Now it's
Back to reality
time to rise up
Struggle is the one thing i know

Got my gun
i'm ready to stage a one-man revolution
start a war, strike a blow
against the tyranny of beauty
Bring about a new age
of love and appreciation
and power for the ones
a bit ugly and strange like me

Everybody
rise up right now
against the tyranny of beauty

from Begging Her Graces (1999)
