lyrics

with your ruby slippers and your dead man slung cross your back
with your ruined reserve and your willlingness to talk about it
with your skeleton key at the ceremony where the yellow brick road drops off and sleeps

with the deadline approaching and the dogs licking sweat off your back
with your precious routine that culminates on sundays alright
it’s a gruesome scene when you know what it means to pull the numbers every day

are lovely enough to fall down into an empty space
are you friendly enough to trail off and realize it’s play
do you love me? do you love me? do you love?

all the feelings i get when i feel your hands a-close around me
veronica dear do you have a heart between those two breasts?
if you skip to the loo then darling that will do cause your eyes are pretty enough to ride

are lovely enough to fall down into an empty space
are you friendly enough to trail off and realize it’s play
do you love me? do you love me? do you love? etc
