lyrics

In the dark days of the two fifty-sixth pope
I descended vertically on a slick slope
Dearly, I was gripping onto that rope

See I’m an ordinary bloke
With an ordinary jaw
I used to get some live support, I never get that live support now

Modern pentathlon
Modern pentathlon

So I wandered lonely in the stratosphere
Disassociating out of a strong fear
Maybe I was destined for the all-clear

From an ordinary dose
With its own pernicious way
I used to get a helping hand until I turned that hand away

Modern pentathlon
Modern pentathlon

And I’m crying myself to sleep
In the wake of your pageantry
Now the peasantry rhymes for you
While I listen in to live support
I never get that live support now

Modern pentathlon
Modern pentathlon

Zipping through the city on my one and only
Zipping through the fields with a gun in my hand
Zipping up a coat, putting on a mask
Modern pentathlon
Modern pentathlon
