  • my dark life

    she says nobody wants to believe
    you're the same as everyone.
    what makes me unique?
    my dark life
    there was a kink in the world
    sent that statue tumbling
    an invitation east
    so we can watch it all crumbling

    she came off like light and so softly she spoke:
    "you don't know, no you don't know about my dark life"
    and you think you're a guest, you're a tourist at best
    peering into the corners of your dark life
    now that you tear your dreams from consumptive ballerinas
    she'd stand on tiptoes for you in a grey and tattered tutu
    she stays where she is because of voyeurs like these
    with an accusative look that says
    my dark life

    robber men await you then in each beguiling alley
    to shake you and to pierce you and remind you of
    my dark life

    enter the pious elite, in their preening finery
    and bang the tambourine
    they're dining on rice paper scenery
    see how the villain attracts envious glances from everyone
    she's waitressing by day
    it doesn't bring in much money now

    and his strong concealed arms set off bells and alarms
    in the strangest locations of
    my dark life
    but the fantasy slipped as he tipped her in cigarettes
    she tries to smile very graciously when she wants to kill him
    now the victory is sweet, you'll get down on your knees
    it's the perfect position for kissing western leather

    so they came from ugly texas and from nameless tennessee
    from peculiar missouri and from places closer to me.
    all the cream of heartless england, cheered the carnival is over
    there are remnants of red army bandsmen
    played "america the beautiful"
