In every car that passes me on the street
I search for the particular face
The lipstick trembles under boomlights
The lipstick my own brothers only trace

Was the birthday birthday ashtray
I carried all along this way now
It was a gift from my little sister
On the very same day they took her away

And it's painted cherry red, cherry red now
All your dreams are cherry red inside your head
And it's painted cherry red, cherry red now
All your dreams are cherry red inside

In Hollywood I got the phone call
That made my heart and my limosine stall
Falling down in the hotel hall again
Little drunk from the Warners' Christmas ball
Cut by love and cut by switchblade
He's been gone nearly half a decade
Cut by love and cut by switchblade
He's been gone nearly half a decade

I still remember my brother
I see his face on the
billboards and the polaroids that
stayed on my pillow 'til they faded

So lock yourself in your hotel room
I take the next flight and be there by noon
Lock yourself in your hotel room
Ooo-oh

Now picture now
Sitting by the pool
With a pink rubber swiming cap eating ice cream
With the girl with the silver curls
Sitting in his lap

I cant still still remember my brother
I see his face on the billboards and the
polaroids that stayed on my pillow
'til they faded some sad grey grey day
Ooo-oh

Yes you are still my brother
Even when you changed over so
Lock yourself in your hotel room and
I'll take the next flight and be there by noon
I pictured it all the fangs and claws
coarse short hair right then and
There, I pictured it all now
Hey!
The fangs, the fangs and claws now

So lock yourself in your hotel room and
I'll take the next flight and be there by noon
Knock yourself in your hotel room
Ooo-oh

And so our fate will secretly begin
To live undergrond after the death of a friend
