Bedeck your gown in bricks, there's leeches stealing across the stage
Come hell or ocean water, I won't end up without
Applaud the gall of the black cloud groping a drunken teenage vow
As saline drips from her prom dress, damp hands are dessicated
There's a wolf at the window of the second floor
Who kidnaps your date with a new car

We both want the same thing, bad poetry and assaults at the bar
Just try and stop me, we are the only one in the world
Prepare the ballroom, quicksand in front of the coat check
Waltz with the scarecrow in the spotlight through the rye

I was born a wanted man but I'll die a sailor's wife
God help me pick the lock to her room, I have to make this right

Scream the hounds to sleep for me
I'm creeping around in your head like a vine
I'm creeping around in your head like a vine

Your spit the meat of the rose harvested by the dull, let fly
Let the doves, unhook their leather wings from the fog

Put your foot and mouth together for the sweethearts of Vietnam
Put your foot and mouth together for the sweethearts of Vietnam

In a photo taken of us at the reception held at the jail
Lover boy is breaking up, just to the right side of me

I will stop at nothing, I am the siren that sings you home
Is that clear? Is that clear?
I will stop at nothing, I am the tooth in your jewelry box
Is that clear? Is that clear?

Let pry the crows, unhook they're crooked beaks from the clock

Bolt the gate for the head of the ivory tower
Adoration is cutting the phone lines to your heart
Love is here

I am the snarling and starry-eyed
I am the snarling
I am the snarling and starry-eyed
I am the snarling

We both want the same thing, better aim at the stranger in our yard
Just try to stop me, I am the blinding light of your life
Prepare the body, I've been better but thanks for asking
Wait with the scarecrow for the spotlight in the rye

I'll eat you alive, I'll eat you alive
The calm will come again

The calm will come again
I'll eat you alive, I'll eat you alive
The calm will come again
