Sunset Rubdown? *record scratch*

10 May

He made an enemy then he made an enemy of all of you

It’s him, not you

You never heard it from me

But there’s a breech in the hull

Where the truth and the water’s too deep to prove

He made an enemy then

He made an enemy of all of you

It’s him, not you

It’s a little red sea

Let the miracle worker go free

See the paddle go up and the paddle go down

And a man falls in the sea

He was a man of many nations

Had a hundred souls and a hundred to go

He was a man of many nations

Two hearts, two hands, it’s a slippery slope

He had a fear of being naked

But you’re any other man in another man’s clothes

He was a man of many nations

With revelations, oh revelations

He wrote a book about the Bible

He wrote a book about men in the sky

He wrote a book about the smell of the winter

And then two… A little less simple to decipher

Saying “I am the water at the foot of the palms,

Or I am sand and wind, and a shitty mirage,

But either way, I’m a man of many nations!”

Was it the mending of the gown, or the running it around?

She had a name, she had a spirit

She had a line in the play if you waited to hear it

But a master of disguises…

Her demise was her design, they said

“Was it the mending of the gown or the running it around?”

She said: “My name and my spirit are both corrupted

If you hold me close you gotta hold me up!

It was the tender meaning of this slender gown

That brought me bending to the ground

Now you’ll wear any old thing, oh you’ll wear any old thing”

So she wrapped herself in swaddling

That the fever deviated to a broken wing

“It’s an act, I think she’s just pretending”

Burn the virgin flags and I will shake

As the heat waves in the sand

This one’s for Maggie

This one’s for Sam

Or any other random spirit lover

Busted

I have lusted after you

The way bloodsuckers do

Was it the mending of the gown,

Or the running it around?

It was the tender mending of this slender gown

That brought me bending to the ground

But this ship was built to go down

See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
