lyrics

Another afternoon another night, you’ve seen the numbers, something isn’t right. Just because the plow in your heart doesn’t show, doesn’t mean you haven’t been dragged through the snow. Now you romance with gas lanterns, talk to magazines at the corner store. Your shirt is tight, your throat is tight, money’s tight tight tight, words a tightrope dance, call it a no-hope-mance. You hear voices say, “Don’t worry if your boyfriend doesn’t treat you right, ‘cause everything is gonna be alright.”

The shopping cart is upside-down at the supermarket in your night-
gown. You take medicine to keep calm: in the elevator, in traffic, on the
L platform. You’re trapped with the pots and pans, with the alligator you’ve got no chance. His teeth are sharp, his claws are sharp, his tongue

is sharp sharp sharp, he plays with sharp pliers, his nails are sharp liars.
You hear the voices say, “Don’t worry if your boyfriend doesn’t treat you right, ‘cause everything is gonna be alright.”

This is not a pipe, this is not a heart, this is not a cloud, this is not art.
This is not a song, this is not a life, this is not a wrench, this is not a knife. This is not a burn, this is not a plate, this is not your story, this is not your fate. This is not a bell, this is not a chain, this is not your fault, this is not rain. You hear the voices say, “Don’t worry if your boyfriend doesn’t treat you right, ‘cause everything is gonna be alright.”
