Baby i've been waiting here for you
In the housing benefit queue
I've been waiting for the light
That's set to end us all
I've been thinking
What these hands could do
Let loose upon you
Set free inside you
Honey, undress me for the last time
Put me to sleep in the daytime
Tonight you're ugly and i'm worse
But we're both victims of this thirst
When the sunlight turns to snow
When these lights are turned down low
It won't be poetry
Just poverty
Like so

Nico's children
Follow me like flies
Needlepoint arms
And nothing in their eyes
Come home to me early
Say that you'll save me
So sunny and dirty
Oh swear you won't spare me
The last in a line of beautiful mistakes
Together we'd never make it
Straight out of here

See i was never impressed
Be their motives of their dress
But when the faith it turns to proof
In this the deepest heart of you
It's not the salvation just desperation
My love we've been lied to before
We'll find the reasons but never the cause
And in these days between stations
Yes we'll be free from their questions
Yeah i was free to be
Whatever it was you wanted me to be
When the charity comes round
When you're safe yet naked
In the crowd
It won't be kindness
Just blindness
Like so
