Getting dressed for a date Put on blue aftershave Wore a kilt like a Celt Hid the way that I felt Combat boots, falling leaves West village Halloween To a Bollywood song Taking shots 'til we're gone And we're gone in the autumn Persona non grata I'm the last of the best I'm your thoughts In the swamp
There's a playground of children In the shadows of buildings There's a line out the church Where your homelessness works Where your stain glass and crimson Meets Ezekiel's visions Saw a valley of bones Where no man shall be saved
And now you You come to me Asking that And now you You come to me And you're asking that Oh how can we reconcile?
Left your innocence there In Tienanmen square You were filled with despair Underfed and depressed Vacant lot Where a prison stood God knows you never would Lie to yourself But you do every time Made a life of deception And passive aggression I'm gonna scream when I sing I'm gonna die in the rain Turn me on you're a knock out Climb up on my cloud Do your worst to me now Before I change my mind
And now you You want to be true To me once again And you want me to be true To you, once again Oh yeah, you You want to be true To me, once again And you want me to be true To you once again
