heartstrings [Jun. 23rd, 2003|06:31 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |elvis the wordsmith]


history repeats the old conceits
the glib replies the same defeats
keep your finger on the button issue
with crocodile tears and a pocketful of tissues

i'm just the oily slick
in the windup world of the nervous tick
in a very fashionable
harbour

i hang around dying to be tortured
you'll never be alone with these bone archers
battle with the bottle
is nothing so novel

so in this almost empty gin palace
through a two-way looking glass
you see your alice

you know she has no sense
for all your jealousy
in a sense she still smiles
very sweetly

charged with insult and flattery
her body moves with malice
do you have to be so cruel to be callous

and now you find
you fit this identikit completely
you say you have no secrets,
then leave discreetly...

i might make it to california's fault
be locked in geneva's deepest vault
just like the canals of mars and the great barrier reef
i come to you beyond belief

my hands were clammy and cunning
she's been suitably stunning
but i know there's not a hope
in hades

all the laddies cat call and wolf whistle
so-called gentlemen and ladies
dog fight like pros in the park

i've got a feeling
i'm going to get a lot of grief
once it seemed so appealing
now I am beyond belief
