lyrics

I tell you you hurt me, you say you hurt twice as much. You got so much sympathy walking around with that golden crutch. So you called in the armies and soldiers fell in line, willing accomplices helping you perpetrate major crimes. But I never felt light in your arms though you had charm to spare. And rats are just rodents but you had real teeth to bare. She looks like a gymnast, let’s hope she’s flexible. She’ll have to be to deal with your role reversals. So you sailed to an island very far away and you fit in so perfectly on that green island of castaways. Wait for a bottle to wash up on the shore. Maybe you’ll find in it the answer that you have been waiting for.
