Go, go, go, go now
Out of the nest, it's time
Go, go, go now
Circus girl without a safety net

Here, here now don't cry
You raised your hand for assignment
Tuck those ribbons under
Your helmet and be a good soldier

First my left foot then my right
Behind the other
Pantyhose running
In the cold

Mother the car is here
Somebody leave the light on
Green Limousine for the redhead
Dancing, dancing girl

And when I dance for him
Somebody leave the light on
Just in, just in case I like the dancing
I can remember where I come from

I walked into your dream
And now I've forgotten
How to dream my own dream
You are the clever one, aren't you?

Brides in veils for you
We told you all of our secrets
All but one and don't you even try
The phone has been disconnected

Dripping with blood and with time
And with your advice
Poison me
Against the moon

Mother the car is here
Somebody leave the light on
Blood chariot for the redhead
Dancing, dancing girl

He's gonna change my name
Maybe you'll leave the light on
Just in, just in case I like the dancing
I can remember where I come from

I escape into your escape into
Our very favorite fearscape
It's across the sky and across my heart
And I cross my legs oh my God

First my left foot then my right
Behind the other
Breadcrumbs lost
Under the snow

Mother, mother the car is here, here
Maybe, maybe you'll leave the light on
Father, father, father dancing girl
He's gonna change my name

Maybe you'll leave the light
Just in case I like the dancing
I can remember where I come, come, from

Mother, mother, mother
