Ooh oh I’m telling everybody about my brand new designer purchase, just right for the season with a perfect fit, gonna be tight for a month but it feels so worth it. Stepping out in my Sunday best, skin tight feel with a shade to match, chasers trace my silhouette but they’ll never get this name off a rack. Ooh ooh, they whisper in my ear, tugging at my sleeve so shear “mmm, where did you get that style, tailor made feminine wile?’ Can you guess what happens next? A reservation at the north end’s best, fresh handpicked ingredients, and baby I would be your guest! Carefully selected to make an entrance. Sitting there in Sunday best, eyes shaping our silhouette; I trust they’ll see we’re nothing less than a perfect match. So if you’d have me for an evening meal without skipping out back before you see the bill. If you have any questions, if you feel unequipped, well you already know what to serve me with- a rice paper dress, the perfect compliment.
X Ray 03:11
Send away for just pocket change, I spent my summer waiting for those x ray lenses. Race to the mailbox, every morning turned away. Imagine a new life with brand new senses... I'll make my name disarming traps. Clearing minefields in a snap. Any danger deeply kept, I'll find it yet, search to the last. Swollen arm, stinging finger, forget the doctor, skip the line! An aching body, seen with discerning eye- look right through you tell me what might I find? Where do you keep me in your heart? Some hidden chamber, oxygen starved? At the entrance to the vein, where I can slip away, circulate? Does it beat for me? I can't quite see. Left guessing, feeling cheated, cheap lenses leaving me so weak. Where do you keep me in your heart? Some hidden chamber, oxygen starved? Am I the pulse or just the blood clot? I gotta know... Send away for just pocket change, I spent my summer waiting for that x ray cure. So much potential, I predict a brave new world. Look past your walls and finally know for sure.
