"13 Steps Lead Down [Demo Version]" as written by and Elvis Costello....
When nobody knows she puts on secret clothes
And lies in the meadow with her hands tied behind her back
I won`t refuse if you know how to use it
Just stop playing that ugly drug music

Thirteen steps lead down
Thirteen steps lead down
There`s commoners and kings
And everyone`s a prisoner of
Paper and glue
And a decent pair of scissors
So tonight I`m drinking to your health
Because I just can`t stand myself

Thirteen steps lead down
Thirteen steps lead down
Thirteen steps lead down
Thirteen steps lead down

She stands and fails
On fashion fingernails
Her lovers have her walking `round
On instruments of torture
And one of them is poisonous
The other is a thief they say
So what one could give to her
The other cannot take away

When nobody knows she puts on secret clothes
And lies in her splendor for a picture opportunity
Cover up that bruise, put on patent leather shoes
Just stop playing that bad mood music baby

Thirteen steps lead down
Thirteen steps lead down
There`s commoners and kings
And everyone`s a prisoner of
Paper and glue
And a decent pair of scissors
So tonight I`m drinking to your health
Because I just can`t stand myself

Thirteen steps lead down
Thirteen steps lead down
Thirteen steps lead down
Thirteen steps lead down
