Wolf Kidult Man

Lyrics

[wolf howls]

Reputation is gone
You're in the clear, boy
Every day of your life
You persevere, boy

Wolf kidult man (1)
Wolf kidult son
Where is your mum?
Your power is gone

Every moment of truth
Is here to stay
Somewhere up in your ear
You're babbling, frantic

Wolf kidult man
Wolf kidult son
Where is your mum?
Your power is gone

You start to walk
Where are you going?
Going to a shop
Your arms limp at your sides
And you've got to embrace this

Wolf kidult man
Wolf kidult son
Where is your mum?
Your power is gone

Reputation is gone
You're in the clear, boy
Every day of your life
You persevere, boy

Taped excerpt from Twilight Zone episode "Printers Devil":

[You put me to] work at once, I think we can save the courier.
How can i put you to work? I can't even pay my bar tab.
Well, that's simple. I'll waive salary until you're in the black.
That's crazy. I might never be in the black.
Well, it's a chance, but it's better than anything you have now.

Notes

1. "Kidult" is a farily recent term for an adult who acts like a child in various ways.

"Kidult", as per note 1.

Well, the earliest citation in the Oxford Dictionary of English is from the Encyclopedia Britannica Book of the Year, 1960, dated to 1958. It was a marketing term that primarily refers to television programmes etc designed and marketed to appeal to children and adults, but then also to adults with "juvenile tastes".

This is the dialogue from the excerpt of the Twilight Zone episode featured at the end, in case anyone's interested. It sounds like a conversation I can imagine MES having with a prospective band member.

How can i put you to work? I can't even pay my bar tab.
Well, that's simple.
I'll waive salary until you're in the black.
That's crazy.
I might never be in the black.

Whoops, I just realised I missed the first line off:

(You put me) to work at once, i think we can save the courier.
