Red and green was the color of her dress
Manipulation
Pale blue was the color of her eyes
Manipulation

Yellow yellow, was her hair
Orange sunburst, red-hot glare
Manipulation
Manipulation

And you can feel her madness
She will call you out
watch out for her dark side
and you'll soon figure out
She'll straighten you
and she's got you, got you

Red and green was the color of the ground
Manipulation
Pale blue was the color of the steel
Manipulation

Yellow yellow was her hair
Icy grey, was her glare
Manipulation
Manipulation

And you can feel her madness
see right through her smile
don't you turn your back and
you'll soon figure out, so run on
She'll straighten you
and she's got you, got you

Red and green was the color of the money in her hand
Pale blue were the color of the flowers on his casket

Yellow yellow was her hair
icy grey was her glare
Manipulation
Manipulation

And you see her sadness
She will call you out
watch out for her dark side
and you'll soon figure out, so run on
She'll straighten you
and she's got you, got you

    General CommentObviously about a sinister female figure, one whose beauty allows her to control men and get what she wants ("Manipulation").

    "Red and green was the color of the money in her hand": This quote says it all :)

    Lyric CorrectionThere are a number of errors in the lyrics here.

    I have:

    Red and green was the color of her dress
    Manipulation
    Pale blue was the color of her eyes
    Manipulation

    Yellow yellow, was her hair
    Orange sunburst, red-hot glare
    Manipulation
    Manipulation

    And you can feel her madness
    She will call you out
    watch out for her dark side
    And you'll soon figure out, so run on
    She's training you
    And she's got you, dancing (don't she?)

    Red and green was the color of the ground
    Manipulation
    Pale blue was the color of the steel
    Manipulation

    Yellow yellow was her hair
    Icy grey, was her glare
    Manipulation
    Manipulation

    And you can feel her madness
    See right through her smile
    Don't you turn your back, and
    And you'll soon figure out, so run on
    She's training you
    And she's got you, dancing

    Red and green was the color of the money in her hand

    And you can see her sadness
    She will call you out
    Watch out for her dark side
    And you'll soon figure out, so run on
    She's training you
    And she's got you, dancing


    It sounds so weird when he says "dancing" that I'm entirely sure that's correct. Best I can come up with so far. "Training" could be "draining".

    To me, this song sounds like a warning to stay away from a seductive golddigger, but it doesn't appear to be a condemnation. More like a warning about a dangerous predator, that respects that predator for what it can do, while at the same time suggesting that she may have some psychological issues that cause her to act that way.

    General CommentYou are so fucked in the head I believe you've spent a little too much time here which is so sad considering....Need I say why? I have learned and learned well (more than anything else and from the best and the people I respect most) that people only like to screw with your head. And hell, if you can't beat em' join em' right? Maybe that's what I've always been missing. Hmm. Interesting.
