in some polynesian dive
downwind from the badlands bah bah bah bah
the palace at 4 am
we kick through the diamond dust
halfway between vancouver and
the bingo game that made the man
kicking around in promiseland

just one flick of the wrist
one flick of the wrist and look look look (look)
you're in the palace at 4 am
when the daydreams threw the covers back back back back
back before you saw
the ribbon tied around your bomb
when you were kicking hearts around

With a straight shot
a straightshot
but lady would you call it art

a straight shot
a straight shot
but lady would you call it art
lady would you call it art

now no more pushing words around
no more pushing words around bah bah bah
the palace at 4 am
you're asking for the book to be thrown down
it opens with a thud
with the dumb luck that was the plan
kicking around the promiseland

with a straight shot
a straight shot
but lady would you call it art

a straight shot
a straight shot
but lady would you call it art
lady would you call it art

now no more pushing words around
no more pushing words around
no more pushing words around
no more pushing words around

straight shot
in the palace at 4 am (8x)
