Lyrics

Art-hounds look like nothing

So Art-hounds write something And those that do are judged by those Who tried and found they couldn't do

Art-hounds see the Greek ideal And gaze on what they'll never feel Oh, the pitiless revenge of those without friends The pitiless, the pitiless revenge

Art-hounds know what's around Because they've seen it somewhere written down And everything they've seen on the moving screen Helps them fill up the page

In European museums Will I see you? Will I see you? Will I see you? Will I see you? In European museums Will I see you?

My life is opera My life is opera My life is opera My life is opera

Art-hounds in a restaurant They bring along their loving Aunt But when they can't find a table for their fat Aunt Mable They stamp their feet and cry

Art-hounds in a restaurant They bring along their loving Aunt But when they can't find a table for their fat Aunt Mable They stamp their feet and cry

In European hushed museums Will I see you? Will I see you? Will I see you? Will I see you? In European hushed museums Will I see you?

My life is opera My life is opera My life is opera My life is...

Art-hounds: very funny, very witty, but very lonely And below the belt is shriveled and small It functions only as a word Art-hounds: very funny, very witty, but very lonely And below the belt is shriveled and small It knows a thousand woes

In European hushed museums Will I see you? Will I see you? Will I see you? Will I see you? In European hushed museums Will I see you?

If you cannot stand this fake world If you cannot stand this fake world Take my hand If you cannot stand this fake world

If you cannot stand this fake world If you cannot stand this fake world Take my hand If you cannot stand this fake world

I take 16 pills to send me to sleep And 16 pills to shake me awake

What does it mean? What does it mean? What does it mean? What does it mean? What does it mean? What does it mean? What does it mean?
