an oil painted portrait
of still life
a moving image
with patience
just lie still
a chemical illusion
break it down
a moment fallen to pieces
fallen down
some things do last forever
I won't go


I want to live in a magazine
I want to go in cheap
and come out clean
I want to live in a magazine
I want to be obscure
with a girl obscene

irresistable canvas
rayon eyes
imaginary invention
can you tell
unbelievable likeness
get closer
a candy coated solution
smells like film
some things do last forever
I won't go


don't try to take me down 'cause you know I
won't go
I don't give a damn about it anymore
I won't go
a sentimental position
hold that thought
an emotional gesture
let it go
an enamel persona
a scientific religion
break it down
some things do
last forever
won't go

    General CommentJust "Come out Clean" actually. People thought it was called Magazine because this song infuenced the name of the album it was first recorded in "Magazine"

    General Commentto clarify: originally, the song was entitled "Magazine" BEFORE the album Magazine was released. they introduced it as "Magazine" in concerts. then, when the CD was released, they decided they wanted to call the album Magazine because 4 or 5 songs on the on the CD mention or talk about Magazines, and it seemed appropriate, but they didn't want the entire CD's focus to be that one song, so they changed the name of the song to "Come Out Clean."
