Shrinking Violet

Post by audiofool » Fri May 26, 2017 3:10 am

Taxi me to the runway
I display my physique
debutante on the catwalk
a queen in shabby chic

smoking cartons of cancer
drinking down to the dregs
I'm only addicted to danger
they won't insure these legs

eyes in indigo lens
hair the blackest dye
tattoo to Kalamazoo
rocking a suit and tie

I'm too much for you
just leave it alone
I'll rip you to shreds
carve my name in the bones

you bet I get offers
I'm not easily impressed
flattery falls to the ground
they only want me undressed

if you don't mind waiting
maybe someday will come
take off this glamor routine
I'll be a working class bum

you'll be my street savior
karma kitsch for a song
take me on a budget tour
am I coming on too strong?

I was made to admire
could I make it any clearer?
when it's down to the wire
it's just me vs. the mirror.
