"Evil Genius"

[ from the album "Hypnoprism" (2010) ]

Lyrics

Oh what fun it is to be
An evil genius
Best friend of Beelzebub
And Epicurus
Old Macdonald had a farm
Totally devoid of charm
Face it now your other friends
Look really tedious
Oh what fun it is to know
An evil genius

Welcome to my secret lair
My evil palace
Evil statues, evil fountains
Evil sun on evil mountains
Have an evil glass of wine
Made with malice
May I introduce my wife?
Evil Alice

Women are attracted to
The evil genius
Probing for his inner being
They find his penis
His boudoir philosophy
Is such seductive sophistry
The girls will drink his Kool-Aid
When he leaves for Venus
Oh what fun it is to love
An evil genius

Who will set you dreaming in
A world that's dreamless?
Who will earth your discontent
Your stubborn meanness?
Old Rasputin had a beard
The Etruscans disappeared
Circumstantial evidence
Of evil genius
Oh what fun it is to be
An evil genius

Who will inherit the mantle of
The evil genius?
Who will take the world over
When he leaves us?
Who'll drag the world up to his level
The pedestal of subtle evil?
Don't believe in groping God
Or groupie Jesus
Oh what fun it is to be
An evil genius

Old Macdonald had a farm
There is no cause for alarm
Oh what fun it is to be
A total genius

So turn to Beelzebub
Or Zoroaster
Evil's just a way of life
So there's your answer
Criminal insanity
Is such a lovely energy
Oh what fun it is to be
An evil genius
