A pretty bad punk rock song that was written early during the creation of More is Less but subsequently discarded.


You'll be the Queen of Prussia in my Holy Roman Empire
We'll go to Russia and set the good old Kremlin on fire
We'll travel down to the Kingdom of the Netherlands
Meet all the diplomats and shake all their little girls' hands
All the while, staying in San Marino
Searching for political asylum
While the headhunters headhunt in the streets of Rome
We'll be lying in a neopagan ritual grove

We'll go to Istanbul; I'll share with you my Turkish Delight
We'll go to Paris and seize the Eiffel Tower at night
We'll push our enemies down from the face of Big Ben
But stop in time to hear Für Elise in 1810
That reminds me of that guy who said he'd see us in Hell
Was it Richard Kuhn, or maybe even Alfred Nobel?
And you know I love you, but wish you hadn't given them a reason
To go and execute us on several counts of high treason


from Up to no good ;), released March 15, 2014
