  • So sorry, missed the party
    Hello, on the dark side of the moon
    Jane lost it, crashed her corvette
    Ran into the tide in Malibu

    And we all heard the gun
    But I was slow to run

    It's just the melting of the sun
    (It's just the sun)
    I wanna watch you watch it burn
    (So watch it burn)

    Saint Joni ain't no phony
    Smoking reds where Furry sang the blues
    My Marilyn shot her heroin
    "Hell," she said, "It's better than abuse"

    So who am I trying to be?
    A benzo beauty queen?

    It's just the melting of the sun
    (It's just the sun)
    I wanna watch you watch it burn
    (So watch it burn)
    We always knew this day would come
    (The day has come)
    It's just the melting of the sun

    Brave Tori told her story
    Police said they couldn't catch the man
    Proud Nina got subpoenaed
    Singing "Mississippi good goddamn"
    But me, I never cried
    To tell the truth, I lied

    Girl, the world's spinning 'round
    Spinning down and out of time
    Girl, you can't give in now
    When you're down, down and out
    Girl, the world's spinning 'round
    Spinning down and out of time
    Girl, you can't give in now
    When you're down, down and out
