Do you remember how it was when you bled?
When you loved and burned in those flames that you've kept
Because Vesta's long been sleeping
And now you've come to accept
That your anatomy defines more than a few
Of the gaping holes in our social fabric and it defines
More than a few one night stands, more than a few prison bars melted in, melted in, melted into wedding bands

We've made you all the peasants and we've made ourselves the kings
Our queens are still subordinate as an angel without wings
We make it easy to belong which means it's easy to be wrong
"Put some plastic in your tits, and you'd look better as a blonde"

I remember when you were hopeful
And you never thought your life would be lived inside a coffin with a moral sacrifice and a million social obligations,
Labels and expectations when you were young and modern seventeen in vogue and vague pursuit of a cosmopolitan dream

So when you bled on the bed as you fed those expectations as a whore and not a human
You embraced with hesitation the very parameters of all you can be
Not a mother, not an aunt, not a sister who's not subdued
Because dignity's not physical and your flesh means more than you
Your flesh means more than you;
Your flesh means more than you;
Your flesh means more than

I know we'll wake up one day with a gun to the back of our brains
You'll be asking for your rib and I'll smile and call you brave
Maybe someday when - when this bloody skull has dried I'll know our city is in ruins when the greatest source of pride is a monument of dicks and ribs and gender crowns we wore
Where underneath, a plaque will read,
A plaque will read: "No woman is a whore"

Maybe someday when - when this bloody skull has dried I'll know our city is in ruins when the greatest source of pride is a monument of dicks and ribs and gender crowns we wore
Where underneath, a plaque will read,
A plaque will read...
You!

    Ever get the feeling that you're never all alone?
    And I remember now
    At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies
    She dies

    Bloodletting (the Vampire Song) by Concrete Blonde

    "There's a crack in the mirror
    and a bloodstain on the bed -
    There's a crack in the mirror
    and a bloodstain on the bed -
    O you were a vampire and baby
    I'm the walking dead
    O you were a vampire and baby
    I'm the walking dead"

    and


    "They used to dance in the garden in the
    middle of the night
    Dancing out in the garden in the
    middle of the night
    O you were a vampire
    and I may never see the light
    O you were a vampire
    and I may never see the light"

    Vermilion
    She seems dressed in all the rings... of past fatalities
    So fragile, yet so devious - she continues to see
    climatic hands that press her temples and my chest
    Enter the night that she came home - forever

    Oh...

    She is everything and more, the solemn hypnotic
    My dahlia, bathed in possesion - she is home to me
    I get nervous, perverse, when I see her, it's worse
    But the stress is astounding
    It's now or never, she's coming home - forever

    Oh... She's the only one that makes me sad

    Hard to say what caught my attention
    Fixed and crazy - aphid attraction
    Carve my name in my face - to recognize
    Such a pheromone cult to terrorize

    I won't let this build up inside of me...

    I'm a slave and I am a master
    No restraints and unchecked collectors
    I exist to my need - to self-oblige
    She is something in me - that I despise

    I won't let this build up inside of me...

    She isn't real - I can't make her real
