daisy dead petals
that is her name
she's in her phone booth phase, so
underneath the shade of a peppermint tray,
she can turn it out with a heal on
she just rides into town
knowing what they'll say,
knowing they're around the corner.
got a crack in,
got a crack in some strange places.

daisy dead petals,
that is her name
so maybe she tastes like a hamburger maid, well
these dead petals, honey, brought me here
she said, "these dead petals, honey, brought me here."

dancing on a dime,
hearing mother cry,
maybe she's around the corner

got a crack in,
got a crack in some strange places
on my back with,
on my back with some dirty dishes

falling down, falling down,
all over the river
falling down, falling down,
falling down...

wish what i'm feeling could
go on like this forever
falling down, falling down,
falling down...

and since we're down
might as well stay,
might as well fry some eggs
and wave to the shade of the peppermint tray
she's a new friend not a skeleton to
ride into town.
knowing what they'll say,
knowing she tastes like a hamburger maid, but
"these dead petals, honey, brought me here."
she said, "these dead petals, honey, brought me here."

    General CommentI think this a song about someone who recognizes they are different in a way people view as bad or generally not positive, and embraces it. She has dead petals, and she is like, "you know what? Fuck it. These dead petals, honey, brought me here." Her petals may be dead, but she loves them. Good for her!

    General Commentcan the "petals" actually be "pedals"? as in piano pedals? the idea just crossed my mind. love how multi-layered Tori's music is, that after 20 years i'm still learning
