Of Montreal – Malefic Dowery lyrics

Love is not a debtor's prison
You don't have to serve a sentence to pay back what you've been given
Now I live in fear of your schizophrenic genius
It's a tempestuous despot that I can't seem to propenciate
Now I feel you're provoking me with your fidelity
That your loyalty and affections are somehow a vopine act of hostility
Now we're a bore
We're afternoon tv
These things in our minds are screaming to defy
How can I bury this rebellion while proving that I'm still your rock'n'roll

Once more I turn to my crutch for council and it won't disappoint me
I know it's the shadow cast by what's looming in the...
And it's how it engenders here

I was dreaming of a hunt you clapped your hands sharply twice to wake me up
Darkness was gripping the sky, I knew I could still be your rock'n'roll
