lyrics

Saint Sebastian, the beautiful boy
they just had to shoot him all over
with their western eyes, with their arrows and bows,
a patriarchal supernova
Jean Michel became a king of New York
by drawing a crown up over his head
he put on a suit, turned on the TV
and made an opera out of his bed

bah bah bah boy kings bah bah boy kings
bah bah you can't kill bah bah boy kings

pretty pretty Valentino
flexing his arms in front of the mirror
looking directly into the camera
and carried across the country revered
Tutenkhamun, the boy in bloom
sleeping forever and ever and ever
with pictures painted all over his room
animals and things of the desert

bah bah bah boy kings bah bah boy kings
bah bah you can't kill bah bah boy kings

Saint Sebastian, the beautiful boy
pierced with arrows, penetrated, despised
left for dead, pale and wounded
miraculously survived
