They say the price of love is a black hole
Where your friends were
Where your social life sits
Pulled into a chasm of family engagements
and trips to the garden centre

That is true enough if you choose it
or it chooses you - I forgot which
You could marry yourself to an orphan girl
and overcompensate on her birthday

Well I don't need koi carp swimming around my feet
and auburn haired children blocking my path
as I run to the disabled bathroom
topping off a twelve-hour drinking spree


Well I don't need koi carp swimming around my feet
and auburn haired children blocking my path
as I run to the disabled bathroom
topping off a twelve-hour drinking spree

Well, they say the price of love is a lot of things
they say a lot - if you give them the chance
they will say it all - and loudly -
sometimes they will say it more than once

I'm reading you like a pamphlet
that I picked up from an idiot
on a unicycle in a town square

He is sad now, he was sadder then

I'm reading you like a pamphlet
that I picked up from an idiot
on a unicycle in a town square

He is sad now, he was sadder then

Now I'm reading you by a candle's sigh
and it breaks my heart in two
you could kid yourself that your dreams amount
to more than counting backwards from four

It's a dangerous thing, ambrosia
just buy the cream, apply it to the scar
and wait for emptiness

Way down in the plastics
Way down in the plugs
Way down in the carpet

A metaphor needs a better home

Way down in the plastics
Way down in the plugs
Way down in the carpet

A metaphor needs a better home

The rich kids stole the ball
The rich kids stole the ball
The rich kids stole the ball
The rich kids stole the ball
