Story Behind the Song

It's written from the perspective of someone going insane. The song title comes from a horse that the Roman Emperor Caligula owned, he saw it as a God, which is pretty mental in itself, like the song.

Lyrics

Dead round the eyes red rings what a sight there
Prone to the thoughts of electric nightmares
Soft like a skin yes I grin if I have to
You've got to, you've got to go

Swim little fish get away from the lobsters
Quick here they come they're relentless monsters
Drown if you have to, don't share the secret
Don't share it, don't share it

Rich men walk through the eye of a needle
Poor men limp on a dog that's feeble
I know a path that is quick and evil
Now I've got to Flog That Horse

Never comes a day so quickly when you're not paying attention
Never comes a day so quickly when you never leave the lights on
Never comes a day so quickly when you're not paying attention
Never comes a day so quickly when you never leave the lights on
The lights on the lights on

My left hand is a whip and a bandage
Free to choose where the mark or brand is
Each one knows how to hide in the carnage
They're hiding, they're hiding

Time's running out for the rats in the playground
Cut straight down like a thief in a small town
Shots rack em up, pin a tail on the donkey
You've got a lot to answer for

Crawl on your knees like a bitch we can see you
Cut through the trees with your claws and your tutu
Quick drag me back through the dirt that I came from
God please let me flog that horse

Never comes a day so quickly when you're not paying attention
Never comes a day so quickly when you never leave the lights on
Never comes a day so quickly when you're not paying attention
Never comes a day so quickly when you never leave the lights on
The lights on the lights on

Don't play games with the ones who can buy you
Don't play games with ones you can lie to
Life seems strange when there's no one to cry to
You're crying, you're crying

Watch in the sky for the wrath of your captor
You'll fall flat if you run any faster
Don't look back for the fear of their laughter
They're laughing, they're laughing

Crawl on your knees like a bitch we can see you
Cut through the trees with your claws and your tutu
Quick drag me back through the dirt that I came from
God please let me flog that horse!

Never comes a day so quickly when you're not paying attention
Never comes a day so quickly when you never leave the lights on
Never comes a day so quickly when you're not paying attention
Never comes a day so quickly when you never leave the lights on
The lights on the lights on

Never comes a day so quickly when you're not paying attention
Never comes a day so quickly when you never leave the lights on
Never comes a day so quickly when you're not paying attention
Never comes a day so quickly when you never leave the lights on
