lyrics

Cross your eyes and dot your teeth
For the second time tonight
You can’t negotiate with a facelift
Or a white collar priest

You can feel it in your holed-up cactus gown
Now your dress makes a whistling kind of sound
I’ve been cooling off my jets with compliments
You confess that your ear is to the ground

Circumscribe the globe with your clothes off
Til you’re so sick at sea
You can’t recuperate in casinos
With a heart for a spade

I can feel it in your dance academy frown
Now your chest makes a murmuring kind of sound
She’s saluting all the vets in monuments
It’s a test of the years into the ground

You can feel it in your holed-up cactus gown
Now your dress makes a whistling kind of sound
I’ve been cooling off my jets with compliments
You confess that your ear is to the ground
