I'm a birthday candle in a circle of black girls
I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in the park
And we'll play / G.I. blood
I was teething on roses / I was in guns and noses
Don't tell everybody at the table about your dreams / They're too amazing, it'll melt their minds
Shallow frame and shaky sticks but I know there's a river in me / Shallow-minded adult tricks but I know there's a river in me
Burn yourself alive and join the monster squad
All the after effects of three girls on two girls / I'll just help you finish off
I don't have a hawk in my heart / No dumbass dove in my dumbass brain
Take a bath and get high through an apple
You'll find commiserations in everyone's eyes / The storm will suck the pretty girls into the sky
Put the pervert in a suit / Take him out and light him out / Get him out of your system / And warm your brand new bones
Fifteen blue shirts and womanly hands / You're shooting up the ladder
She kisses the cops on the lips / And she takes them to Paris / And tucks them in
Show up here loaded with bells on your toes / I don't care what you're into / I'll put velvet ropes around you, if that's what you need
Your bottom lip is bleeding / I cut it on your collarbone
Gonna run to the river / Gonna throw a blue bouquet / 'Cause they're gonna be cool happy genius heroes / I'm gonna miss 'em so much
I have your good clothes in the car / So cut your hair so no one knows / I have your dreams and your teeth marks / And all my fingernails are painted
I think I saw you walking in the city / Hips like a boy's / The sun fell behind you and never stood up
Beat off the army with a tennis racket / That's my whole plan
