lyrics

That picture of you playing possum on a Datsun or a Comet
In your mother's gorgeous homespun dress she never fades
You fully flaunt your father's strongest habits
Smoking Navy Cuts and chronic
On a rooftop
In a future
From the city of Nairobi

Perfectly dressed and plenty lonely
As a thoughtless microbe in thrall to nobody
As a waxed corpse dandy dabbing you expertly
With liberty
On the apple of a cheek

Go stalking while the efflorescence has overscrewed its flowering
You're a pliable courtier, confidence man, warrior
On your mega-sally through a scuzzy mood
Disappointment stalks your sock drawer
But there are also
Memento mori
That keeps you immune from a blues

Perfectly dressed and plenty lonely
As a thoughtless microbe in thrall to nobody
As a waxed corpse dandy dabbing you expertly
With liberty
On the apple of a cheek

And you haven't got a check plus medicine
In that wonder bag of mysterious itinerants
With your long 18th Century party vest
(Exploding in bad taste)
You'd bomb your own house just to pretend to smithereen those snakes

That picture of you playing possum on a Datsun or a Comet
In your mother's gorgeous homespun dress she never fades
You fully flaunt your father's strongest habits
Smoking Navy Cuts and chronic
On a rooftop
In a future
From the city of Nairobi

Perfectly dressed and plenty lonely
As a thoughtless microbe in thrall to nobody
As a waxed corpse dandy dabbing you expertly
With liberty
On the apple of a
Perfectly dressed and plenty lonely
As a thoughtless microbe in thrall to nobody
As a waxed corpse dandy dabbing you expertly
With liberty
On the apple of a cheek
On the apple of a cheek
On the apple of a cheek
