Go go go go now
Out of the nest, it's time
Go go go now
Circus girl without a safety net
Here here now
Don't cry
You raised your hand for the assignment
Tuck those ribbons under
Your helmet and be a good soldier
First my left foot then my right behind the other
Pantyhose running in the cold

Mother the car is here
Somebody leave the light on
Green limosine for the redhead
Dancing, dancing girl
And when I dance for him
Somebody leave the light on
Just in case I like the dancing
I can remember where I come from

I walked into your dream
And now I've forgotten
How to dream my own dream
You are the clever one aren't you
Brides in veils
For you
We told you all of our secrets
All but one
And don't you even try
The phone has been disconnected
Dripping with blood and with time and with your advice
Poison me against the moon

Mother the car is here
Somebody leave the light on
Blood chariot for the redhead
Dancing, dancing girl
He's gonna change my name
Maybe you'll leave the light on
Just in, just in case I like the dancing
I can remember where I come from

I escape into
Your escape into
Our very favorite fearscape
It's across the sky
And across my heart
And I cross my legs
Oh my God
First my left foot then my right behind the other
Breadcrumbs lost under the snow

Mother
Mother the car is here
Here
Maybe, maybe you'll leave the light on
Father, father, father
Dancing girl
He's gonna change my name
Maybe you'll leave the light
Just in I like the dancing
I can remember where I come, come from
Mother, mother, mother
