lyrics

I know that she's a pistol
Cos she twists all of my
Winning wit away
And we're all into bitchin'
Still it's never very Christian
What we say

That alabaster brow
Even now
Feels like a miracle to me
You little porcelain doll
On a roll
Setting out the way the world should be

I want to fix the broken connection
To your affection to your affection
I want to fix the broken connection
To your affection to your affection

In our culture clashes
I'm a fibber I'm a fascist
I'm a fake
Clinging by the fingertips
While all my vast opinion
Chips away

That alabaster brow
Even now
Feels like a miracle to me
You little porcelain doll
On a roll
Setting out the way the world should be

I want to fix the broken connection
To your affection to your affection
I want to fix the broken connection
To your affection to your affection

I want to reach the part
Where the hero turns around
And picks the plot apart
Stops the story dead
And finally finds the wherewithal
To put this flimsy fairy tale to bed
