Who deserves a pretty tangle dream
Green hillside, hands inside hands
I lay before you like unclaimed land
You drove your bulldozer over
Wrote your name in the sand
I am new, watch the smoke move through
You've got this world, and the wine in your hand

So you drink it down, then you look at me
And offer me some watered down potion
Always one to let out devotion
Tell me you've been saving it for me

Who deserves a pretty tangled dream
Green hillside, hands inside hands
I lay before you like unclaimed land
Clear economic potential
You hung yourself in the sky frozen blue
My smile, a tattoo, you're happy with what you've created
Tell me to choose like some big suit tycoon

You used to shine, I can't find where you drink it down
Yeah look at me, offer me a watered down potion
Always one to let out devotion

    General CommentIt's "Eau de Toillette of devotion"

    Eau de Toillette is watered down perfume. When you buy perfume/cologne and it says "eau de toillette," you know it's the cheaper kind.

    I think it's weird that the one talking about "The View" is called "Eau de Toillette" and the one talking about "Eau de Toillette" is talking about "The View"

    General CommentThese are the lyrics to "Eau de Toilette." The copy of the album circulating the internet is incorrectly tagged (based on the tracklisting on the album liners).
