Henry Phillips - On The Shoulders Of Freaks lyrics

Ancient philosophy was framed by prodigies
Aristotle, Plato, and Socrates
And even though their thoughts were deemed
the aristocratic voice
they also had a thing for little boys

Catherine the Great, so it's been said
needed large animals to be fulfilled in bed

From historic rulers
to the ancient Greeks
We're standing on the shoulders of freaks

"Isn't life pretty?" Ernest Hemingway once said
and then he put a bullet through his head

Salvador Dali's surreal paintings were godsent
You'd never know he ate his own excrement

Then there's da Vinci, for whom it required
dressing in women's underwear to be inspired

From the great romantics
to the ancient Greeks
We're standing on the shoulders of freaks

Truman Capote, needless to say
would be intoxicated 20 hours a day

From the modern authors
to the ancient Greeks

We're standing on the shoulders of freaks

We're standing on the shoulders of freaks
