The Power of Orange Knickers

Album: The Beekeeper (2005)
  • The power of orange knickers
    Under my petticoat
    The power of listening to what
    You don't want me to know
    Can somebody tell me now
    Who is this terrorist
    Those girls that smile kindly
    Then rip you life to pieces
    Can somebody tell me now
    Am I alone with this
    This little pill in my hand
    And with this secret
    Kiss
    Am I alone in this?
    A matter of complication
    When you become a twist
    For that latest drink
    As that transitioning
    Can somebody tell me now
    Who is this terrorist
    This little pill in my hand
    That keeps the pain living
    Can somebody tell me now
    The way out of this
    That sacred pot of red stuff
    Could blow me out of this
    Kiss
    Am I alone in this
    The power of orange knickers
    Under my petticoat
    The power of listening to what
    You don't want me to know
    Shame shame time to leave me now
    Shame shame you've had your fun
    Shame shame for letting me think
    That I would be the one
    Can somebody tell me now
    Who is this terrorist
    This little pill in my hand
    Or this secret
    Kiss
    Am I alone in this
