I have two heads
Where's the man, he's late
One burns, one's sky
Where's the man, he's late
I'm two headed one free one sticky

But is it freedom can burn?
Is sticky ever blue?
For instance where's my husband?

This is what I need why I can't stay
God, this is the devil too bad he's late
I love the smell of beer
The smell of dar, the feel of dark, to feel the rug
To press the rug beneath me
A small party

But is it sinners can burn?
I hear we let them speak
For instance where's my husband

If you're my husband I tell you something
Dance on the devil's roof
Under a devil's moon
I don't care and you don't move

    General CommentThis could've been my mother's jam when she was an undiagnosed bipolar in the 80's. The drinking, partying constantly...and my father took off b/c he couldn't understand her mania. Usually it was her leaving all of us, so when my father left we really knew there was something wrong with my mother. He came back when she got her diagnosis and lithium.
    "Where's the man, he's late" sounds like a manic person pacing back and forth, as they do. My mother paced for months, she barely ate, and stayed up all night literally losing her mind. Thank you Kristin Hersh for writing this tune.
