betty found the city
now the city's found betty in a hole
with a tattoo around her ankle
and a tiny little jackal in her soul

they wrapped her up and put her in a hole
yeah they put her in a hole
wrapped her and put her in a hole
yeah they put her in a hole

it was six in the morning
when i saw her shaking hands with a ghost
trying to rub the cracks from her face
as a new day broke

they wrapped her up and put her in a hole
yeah they put her in a hole
wrapped her and put her in a hole
yeah they put her in a hole

some day, you'll be rid of this weight
she takes a foreigner's kiss,
and wipes it from her cold, cold lips
she takes a foreigner's kiss,
and wipes it from her cold, cold lips

sitting on a park bench, waiting for the neon to glow
tracing little pictures in the air
'cause her boat don't row

they wrapped her up and put her in a hole
yeah they put her in a hole
wrapped her and put her in a hole
yeah they put her in a hole

some day, you'll be rid of this weight
she takes a foreigner's kiss,
and wipes it from her cold, cold lips
she takes a foreigner's kiss,
and wipes it from her cold, cold lips

life ain't what it seems,
when you chase the tail of a dream
as she, she rides around
on a carousel
she, she rides around
on a carousel
