What she said :
That I'm dead
God knows, I'm ready!"

But then, all the rejection she's had
Could only be idiocy

Lover that she never had
No no no...
What she read
She'd sit and prophesise

All heady books
(It took a tattooed boy from
To really really open her eyes)
What she said :
Early death

"I smoke 'cause I'm hoping for an
And I need to cling to something!"
