lyrics

Up to the age of 23
I kept my own private company
One day an acquaintance said to me
“Let me join your secret society”

It was a weathered stone
It needed lots of scrubbing
There were sheets and clothes
Which needed a thorough washing

The club was a little lonely
I let her join my society
The rules were written down for clarity
I saw an end to my monopoly

And I kept pressing the point
That societies go stagnant
Without new voices
Laziness will run rampant
Recruited more members
And formed a new committee
The first decree was set
Strive for massive publicity

Yeeeah!

I lost my credibility
In my own secret society
I saw no need for privacy
I don’t want that to be my legacy
I don’t want that to be my legacy
I don’t want that to be my legacy

It was a weathered stone
It needed lots of scrubbing
There were sheets and clothes
Which needed a thorough washing
And I kept pressing the point
That societies go stagnant
Without new voices
Laziness will run rampant

It was a weathered stone
