Track Name: Going Down
Everybody's talkin bout goin down to see the show
I can't wrap my mind around it
Look at them go —
Bodies made up of empty spaces that never touch
Circumscribed by a viscous oozing of inarticulate mass

People always told me
Life's full of surprises
It finds a way
Round and round again

The king's daughter in a violin string
Evening gown drives the knife
And the fat enfolds it
God smiling down

People always told me
"Life's full of surprises"
it finds a way round and round again
