lyrics

Everybody's leaving like they're running from the plague
Everybody's hiding, I'm the only one that has stayed
And I'm just sitting, thinking, waiting for this golden egg
To hatch into anything that will compensate
For the time I'm spending in this apprehensive state
Whatever it will turn into, I can hardly wait!

Everybody's beautiful and everybody's kind
Before all of the abuse they've taken to their mind
And it can be impossible to sit down and rewind
To all the moments that have turned your blood to turpentine
To copulate with misery to which you've been assigned
And love it and then leave it until you are reassigned

Pleasurable world

Your children are all criminals and their friends are all the same
One will steal the cookie jar and then they'll place the blame
On all the little girls, they're all wrapped in celophane
They put them inside boxed and they mailed them off to Spain
They put them on the streets and they change they're given name
And you're lucky your mom was cool enough to fly them back to Maine

Everybody's beautiful and everybody's kind
Before all of the abuse they've taken to their mind
And it can be impossible to sit down and rewind
To all the moments that have turned your blood to turpentine
To copulate with misery to which you've been assigned
And love it and then leave it until you are reassigned
