I wanna shut you down
Like your sight and sound
I wanna spin you 'round
Till you're underground
I wanna strip you down
'Til you feel the round
I wanna feel your shine
I wanna waste some time

I wanna paint my face
Like a model out of place
'Cause I'm supposed to dare
The machine will tear
I'll throw up sometime
Then you'll be mine
I wanna swerve you down
While my mind is on the ground
I wanna move your switch
Make you go squish
My desirin' machine
Yeah, it's made pretty clean
Now I turn the dial
An' I'll pull you on the pile

You
I gotta
Ooh aaa

Modern women cry
Modern women don't cry
Modern women cry
Modern women don't cry
Cry, don't cry
You hurt me with your lie

Touch the fire in the rain an'
See the children stop their playin'
Look for shelter in a garden
Of make believe and I
I believe perfection is a
I can see what you're going through but
I can't melt my head to what you're
Whisked away to light the bomb a
Thousand leaves are left to stay and and
