And what is that branch?
What branch is it?
Account is altered
And nine year olds

Walk around
In debt record
Account is altered
The grim visage

Account is delta
All yours
The web descends
Look to your grey hairs

And back your horses
About a week
A special allowance
Ran out yesterday

The Masquerah
The Masquerade
The Masqueraderie
Like a fish dish

The grim visage
Altered again
And again
The fifty percent interest

Ran out today
Account altered
In succour
All granted

Knew your desperate comrades
Evaporated
And what is that branch?
What branch is it?

That has the pipe
Of Aluminium
Sprawling underneath it?
You rich pig

What the hell's it?
The Masquerah
The Masquerade
The Masqueraderie 

The web descends
Look to your grey hairs
And back you horses
About a week

A special allowance
Ran out yesterday
The Masquerah
The Masquerade

The Masqueraderie
Like a fish dish
The grim visage
Altered again

And again
The fifty percent interest
Ran out today
In Bolton

In succour
All granted
Knew you
