lyrics

my name is Henery the Eighth, i am
that i am
Napoleon XV, no relation
i come in peace,
i come and go as i please,
i come to change the conversation


A man’s own fortress is the place
where every portrait has his face
good morning, gorgeous in disgrace

My name is Henery the Eighth, i am
that i am
the last King of Scotland, Idi Amin
i’m not joking,
i’m Shogun of all Japan,
can you see me?
a demon eating ramen

a man’s own fortress, paper-thin
to keep his torture chambers in

home and alone with myself; such an addictive sin
i’m looking after the health of one of my fictive kin

(it’s a family affair, it’s a family affair)


i AM A ViNDiCTiVE MAN
DON’T MESS WiTH MY FiCTiVE KiN
i AM A PROTECTiVE MAN
DON’T QUESTiON MY FiCTiVE KiN
i AM A SELECTiVE MAN
RARiFY MY FiCTiVE KiN
VERY iNTROSPECTiVE MAN
CARE OF ALL MY FiCTiVE KiN


sun sinks back down behind the buildings
light shoots from the ground to the penthouse floor
every day feels like trouble
every day seems like it's happened before
but you talk like you've still got pride
you talk like your words still mean anything
i think you came here to hide
i think you came here to get away

every day feels like trouble
every day seems like it's happened before
every day feels like trouble
every day seems like it’ll happen again

my name is Henery the Eighth, i am
that i am that i am that i am and no relation
i am a self that relates itself to itself
and itself is no relation
