Vocal by Deppe, BUT...

Words and Music by Williams (see what we did there?)


Say goodbye to the libertine lie.
Finally had my fill.
You know, I used to have two or three women a night
and those were just the ones I killed.

But now your love merely washes away
all the violence from within me.
You're the most perfect woman
this side of Myra Hindley.

Just around the coroner
there's a rainbow in the sky.
Tonight I spared the life of a Kensington whore
with a kiss to the glory of my bride.

Though to my mother's nightmare, I
am like my brother and sister fated
it's time to give the entrails back
to the whispering eviscerated.

Pumpernickel Crust
Oh my Pumpernickel Crust
Pumpernickel Crust
I love ya, Pumpernickel Crust

You leave me to do the terrible things.
You stay at home to breed a race of kings.
