lyrics

Waited for six hours to rid myself
Then plus sixteenhundred more -
resume what I abhor!

(and they warned you.
Don't say that they didn't warn you right before)

Patience is a virtue, so they say.
She looked deep into my eyes,
told me "it's the right way".

But he was on his phone!
(ally, ally!)
Isolate me on the throne, alright.

I coulda kept you round.

I won't lie that it didn't hurt -
'cause the hearts on the wall,
they were full of words.
And their faulty logic
made me feel absurd.

Standing at my kitchen sink
explaining that you're just a symbol -
no larger than a thimble!
cellular!

No philosophy for the Woman's World -
though they took the terms for
the Spirit and Phenomenon!
Try to prove the pull -
try to prove it!
And the downward tongue.
Down you went,
but I could have kept you round.
Anahita's mound.
Never rash,
but I harshly decide
and in the night I hold the knife.

Is it cliche
if I give you a name?
I took away?
I wanted to walk out
and they laugh and pout
but I wanted to walk out.

I could have kept you round,
You were Kind, you mastadon.
never hurts to admit you're wrong.
