My sweetheart is made of clay
She is an international model
She looks pretty as a flower in May
Through the bottom of a bottle

Sometimes I can see her face
Staring off into space
She won't look at me
That's best, don't look at me

My sweetheart is a figurine
She's a dancing diva
I got my eyes closed on a nicotine high
Waiting for a curtain to rise

Sometimes she sings out loud
And I feel like a big crowd
She won't notice me
That's best, don't notice me

My arms are just a dead matter of fact
She puts her arm around me like a towel on a rack

My sweetheart is a shown up happening vein
She's my darling
And I wake up ready to say
I think I'll make a snappy new day

Sometimes I can see her face
Staring off into space
She won't look at me
That's best, don't look at me

    My InterpretationI think this means his happiness is like clay and can be molded, or made, He finds the beauty of "her" or "it" through drugs, alcohol, or his relationship with his girl. I say drugs, and alcohol because of the lyrics "the bottom of the bottle" and "a shown up happening new vein"

    At some point I think the song does talk about an actual woman, maybe Jennifer Chiba who was a singer, and it could explain the curtain opening and the singing out loud part, and he gets a feeling like he would with the drugs, perhaps its happiness.or bliss; a love for something

    He talks about his arms being a dead matter of fact and she puts her arms around him like a towel on a rack just limp and there without meaning. I think that is saying the drugs have killed that beauty he does see at times, and there are probably marks on his arms from needles or such which makes his drug use apparent or "matter of fact" as it is written. When he talks about seeing her face staring off into space its reflecting of his own high,and what he perceives. He feels guilty when his love see him like this. "Don't Look at Me" is written

    In the end I think its a mix of the highs and happiness he gets from the girl he loves. and from substance abuse all rolled up and combined with guilt.

    Beautiful song, whatever it means.
