Seen her rockin' the Rainbow Store
That pretty little doll that I'd seen before
Stayed too long with the borderline
My emotional landscape was strip-mined.
What's left of my heart came out to cause a stir
She knew I was watchin' her
Lookin' like she'd love to give all things form
Started gettin' glad that I was born

She walked right up to me
Said, "What's it gonna be?"
At the Rainbow Store

She came over and she pulled my hair
Said, "Hey boy, what ya doin' here?"
"Just shoppin' for my sister, it's her birthday soon."
She knew it wasn't true but she was cool
Pushed my neck against the elevator door
Kissed me like I'd never been kissed before
Made a face so sweet and mean
I went down like a submarine

She walked right up to me
Said, "What's it gonna be?"
At the Rainbow Store

Went all the way down to the abyss
It felt like almost happiness
Never thought I'd find myself here
Without guilt, and without fear
I never knew it could be all right
I never knew bliss not to be finite
You never know despair or languishment
Once you live to complete this illusionment

She walked right up to me
Said, "What's it gonna be?"
At the Rainbow Store
She walked right up to me
Bam! went my ennui
At the Rainbow Store
