Flower Girl

I watch her as she walks
she pulls the flowers from the stalks
she puts them in her hair
they're happy there
She glitters like a glitterball
hanging from the ceiling of a discobar.
She likes to breathe she likes to be
Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl
I know you like to kiss, like to blister your lips
Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl
your hitting the world with your pretty little fists.

She hasn't got a head
she's got a neck that slowly spreads onto the forest floor
where the bluebells and the daffodils
are sucking at her blood
she decorates the mud with her sweet scent
with her soft skin.

Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl
I know you like to kiss, to blister your lips
Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl
your hitting the world with your pretty little fists.

I would like to, I would like to, I would like to, I would like to,
I would like to, I would like to, I would like to,
Cut your head off!

She's easy to detect
there's flesh above the footsteps
she's singing like an angel, sitting on a spire
she wears a chain of daisies
to hide the skin and bones
and marches towards a hill and cross to join the other Jesus clones.

Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl
I know you like to kiss, to blister your lips
Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl, Flowergirl,
Your hitting the world with your pretty little fists.


Mrs Donnelly

Mrs Donnelly has seven children
out in the backyard
she beats them three times a day
lets them in if it rains
their faces are white
and their knees cut up on the concrete
she smokes cigarettes all day
then
she says

you know that I once was
young and pretty
I used to go down town
and dance on saturday nights but
now I've lost my dignity and grace
now I'm just a wife

Sometimes when she's sweeping the floor
she thinks the brush is a microphone
she dances marrilyn style
around the kitchen
she goes upstairs gets into an old dress that don't fit
she stands infront of the mirror
then
she says

you know that I once was
young and pretty
I used to go down town
and dance on saturday nights but
now I've lost my dignity and grace
now I'm just a wife

Banana Breath Baby (live)

Sucking on a cigarette
talking Mrs Maybe
you pull your own trumpet
Banana Breath Baby

Suitcase up the corridor
sweet talking the ladys
you pull your own trumpet
Banana Breath Baby

(?) vacation
Lunchtime Playstation
Cigar after tea
You won't get me
(?) vacation
Lunchtime Playstation
Cigar after tea
You won't get me
Banana Breath Baby

Oh, the bird of paradise is up your nose
Oh, the smell of money on your clothes
(?) (?)
fingers in the pies
skin and bones disgised
skin and bones disgised
you won't get me
Banana Breath Baby
you won't get me
Banana Breath Baby


Three Lie Ins (Demo)

The man with the suntan isn't gonna hurt you
he's just dressed up as a culture vulture
he needs a lendier steam machine
he needs a (?) to sock it to me

I dribble round the keeper but I never can shoot
I never can find a fly in my soup
I never can play a tune on my flute
I dribble round the keeper but I never can shoot

I shave and I shower and I dress up neat
I'm waiting for the summer and the natural heat
I'm trynna use the (?) (?) (?) (?) (?)
but everything I walk on stinks of feet

I dribble round he keeper but I never can shoot
I never can find the fly in my soup
A flower in the pot but it never roots
I dribble round the keeper but I never can shoot
