I'll be the grapes fermented,
Like a perfect gentlemen
Where you will sit and contemplate your day
I'll be the waterwings that save you if you start drowning
I'll be the phonograph that plays your favorite
I'll be the platform shoes and undo what heredity's done to you...
I'll be your winter coat buttoned and zippedstraight to the throat

And kiss you on the mouth
Start a brand new colony
We'll give ourselves new names (identities erased)
Under our bare feet in this brand new colony

[Thanks to for these lyrics]
