"Your Ankles to Your Earlobes" as written by and John Ashley Congleton....
Shame,
Shame on you
And your sweet head on the pillow
Take the pills, dear, let your hair grow
Take a knee, believe you me
With ankles to the earlobes
Bite your lip, dead, make a wish, girl
Bless your heart, bless your heart, bless your heart
Pox, a pox on you!
So what do you have to say for yourself
When the gangbang's done and no one's left to appease?
Aren't you fetching with finger cuffs and knock-knees?
We make a warm bed for the Yankees

Bless your heart, bless your heart, bless your heart
So, Abby, it's far too late for me
I left a notebook on the shelf just take the kids and save yourself
My little Abby, and soon they'll come for me
just tell my son that I'm sorry
I'll disappear, you no are free
And Abby, it's far too late for me
My sweet Abby, I hope you die laughing
All fat and cheek on your warm bed
The raven , the vulture won't circle your head
My sweet queen bee, I hope it comes quickly
I hope your thoughts don't drift to me
I'll die in here, you now are free
You now are free
My precious thing

    General CommentI'm not really sure what to think of this. It sounds like Abby cheated on her husband. He realizes she's not happy and decides to leave to make her happier.

    When he says "It's far too late for me." and "I'll die in here, you now are free." might point to him killing himself.

    General CommentI love the laughing in the beginning... This song makes "Said the Spider To The Fly" sound poppy.

    General Commenti can't believe the person who wrote this producing the next polyphonic spree album!

    My OpinionHere my idea of the album. It is about the guy named Henry, which from what i can gather he has some type of multiple personality disorder. He marries a woman named Abby who he knew from childhood, they have kids, and live a happy life until a war starts and Henry is shipped off to war. i don't know what happens during his service but something causes him to snap and develop a multiple personality disorder. so then he comes back and is thrown in to a world he does not know. Abby the one person who loved him completely, now resents him for living for so long. and his kids don't want anything to do with him. this causes Henry's other side to start taking control of him. this leads to this song, this is the first time you hear from the other Henry, he is the one at the beginning of the song *that's why he seems to hate His wife* and the second half of the song is Henry trying to warn his wife of her inevitable doom. from this song you go to a song called "lets be bad Henry lets be really bad" this song is the other Henry convincing Henry to give him control *which works* which leads to Henry killing a prostitute. then with the other Henry in full control he goes after his wife. which is played out in the song "Now you're gonna get it" where he tortures and kills her. then in the last song Bad Henry give control back to Henry and he see what happened and knows that there is no going back for him and in one last ditch effort to be with his wife again kills himself. but that is just what i think of the album if you have a different view let me know, and sorry if it seems hard to follow i just put down what i thought.

    General CommentYou can't listen (or read the lyrics) to just ONE song and try to figure out the meaning. Each album in it's entirety is a story, each song just a chapter. All the meanings tie in together.
    moloko: you wouldn't know what I know.
