Hey modern school girl what have you done to me?
Hey modern school girl you seem to smirk right through me
Men erected statues for you Men have toppled towers
But I’d walk all across their backs to hand you some flowers

Hey modern school girl you’re the one they crossed the oceans for
Hey modern school girl you’re the reason men like me lie on the ocean floor

Hey modern school girl you have seduced me
Hey modern school girl you’ve utterly reduced me
Hey modern school girl I must seem obscene
Perfumed in gasoline for a girl who’s only seventeen

All of the worlds pretty things are heaped upon her
They name each natural disaster in her honour
I brought you every bloody head of every bloody saint
So don’t tell me you’re tired of red ‘cause modern school girl I know that you ‘aint.

Perfumes and hair dyes tested on rabbits eyes
Cats claws and roses thorns, blood thirsty unicorns
That little girls room, a pink and purple tomb

Hey modern school girl life isn’t fair
I’m bleeding outside your door and you don’t care
I don’t know your language and I don’t know your dances
You don’t know my anguish but you seem to know my chances


Hey modern school girl you are one to wear it on your sleeve
You may be innocent but your innocence is cruel and naive
