The Mayflower haunts the mother
Employed by Calvin Company for the Kansas City [skins]

When you were up in the air
Did it make you what you were?

You met a man who had a surname
That was the same as his [folly]
Drained him of his dollars
Left him with a tattoo [dog]

On the cusp of eternal defeat
In charge of Lion's Gate
I'd rather die than play it straight

Journeyman who sparkled
[above] an easy target
Armed with a genre and an overlapping ensemble
