We explore the men's room
We don't give a shit
Ladies' lost electricity
Take vows inside of it

[Chorus:]
Desire to dance
Too startled to try
Wrap my legs 'round you
Starting to fly

Let's explore 
Up there, up there, up there
On the twenty-fifth floor

The transformation of waste
The transformation of waste is perhaps the oldest preoccupation of man

Inherent within us is the dream of the task of the alchemist to create from the clay of man
And to recreate from excretion of man pure and then soft and then solid gold

All must not be art
Some art we must disintegrate
Positive, anarchy must exist

I feel it swirling around me
I feel it feeling no pain
I'm waiting above for you baby
I know that I'll see you up there
