      You get your trunks 
      Out of the drawer 
      You see yourself 
      As once before 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      The empty box 
      Lies on the chair 
      Another steroid 
      Grease your hair and you're 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      The sun-ray lamp 
      Is put away 
      There is no need 
      To be afraid 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      So fix yourself 
      Into a shape 
      Your audience 
      Is half awake and you're 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      The time has come 
      To flex your back 
      Another day 
      For you, meat-rack 
      Strong in reason 

      Strong in maker 
      Strong in arm 
      Strong with almost perfect charm 
      Strong intention 
      Strong in strength 
      Strong in almost every sense 

      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      And on the stage 
      The lights are green 
      It's one step forward 
      Now you've been seen 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      The right arm up 
      The left arm down 
      Open mouth 
      The vacant crowd 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      The chest of wax 
      Flips like a coin 
      Into the rhythm 
      Into the join 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      The ladies in 
      The comfortable seats 
      They look at you with 
      Eyes so deep 'cause they're 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      Well take a bow 
      Because you'll get the sack 
      I'm pleased to slag you off 
      Meat-rack 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 

      Strong in maker 
      Strong in arm 
      Strong with almost perfect charm 
      Strong intention 
      Strong in strength 
      Strong in almost every sense 

      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason 
      Strong in reason
