The Secret Life of Dr. Calgori Lyrics

Abney Park
Testtubes and Tesla coils,
Clockwork brain 'n' glowing oils,
Copper, brass, explosive jelly,
His mechapede policed Old Delhi.
Invented the radio transmitting, too.
Played poker with Theremin, Tesla and Poe.
Harnessed cold moonlight to power airships
and distilled anti-toxins from post-nasal drips.

(2x)
Entropy
Fading his life away
Before the world could ever see
Dissipating, evaporating

Hiding in secret behind locked doors,
a man in uniform fighting cold wars.
Invented steam sailors and taught them to fight
and they stopped things going bump in the night.
All his accomplishments hidden for life.
His genius's top secret even from his wife.
An aged wrinkled genius, his memory fading.
His fates, his creations, the government evading.

(2x)
Entropy
Fading his life away
Before the world could ever see
Dissipating, evaporating.

Testtubes and Tesla coils,
clockwork brain 'n' glowing oils,
copper, brass, explosive jelly,
his mechapede policed Old Delhi.
Invented the radio transmitting, too.
Played poker with Theremin, Tesla and Poe.
Harnessed cold moonlight to power airships
and distilled anti-toxins from postnasal drips.

(3x)
Entropy
Fading his life away
Before the world could ever see
Dissipating, evaporating.
