Father Lucifer

Album: Boys for Pele (1996)
  • Father Lucifer
    You never looked so sane
    You always did prefer the drizzle to the rain
    Tell me that you're still in love with that milkmaid
    How's the Lizzies
    How's your Jesus Christ been hanging

    Nothing gonna stop me from floating
    Nothing gonna stop me from floating

    He says he reckons I'm a watercolour stain
    He says I run and then I run from him
    And then I run
    He didn't see me watching
    From the aeroplane
    He wiped a tear
    And then he threw away our appleseed

    Nothing gonna stop me from floating

    Everyday's my wedding day
    Though baby's still in his comatose state
    I'll die my own Easter eggs
    Don't go yet
    And Beenie lost the sunset but that's but that's OK
    Does Joe bring flowers to Marilyn's grave
    And girls that eat pizza but never gain weight
    Father Lucifer you never looked so saneWriter/s: TORI ELLEN AMOS
