Father Lucifer
You never looked so sane
You always did prefer the drizzle to the rain
Tell me that you're still in love with that milkmaid
How's the Lizzies
How's your Jesus Christ been hanging

Nothing gonna stop me from floating
Nothing gonna stop me from floating

He says he reckons I'm a watercolour stain
He says I run and then I run from him
And then I run
He didn't see me watching
From the aeroplane
He wiped a tear
And then he threw away our appleseed

Nothing gonna stop me from floating

Everyday's my wedding day
Though baby's still in his comatose state
I'll die my own Easter eggs
Don't go yet
And Beenie lost the sunset but that's but that's OK
Does Joe bring flowers to Marilyn's grave
And girls that eat pizza but never gain weight
Father Lucifer you never looked so sane

    General CommentThat conversation with her dad is hilarious!

    This song is Lucifer the light-bearer, who rejects the gloss, the high ideal, and goes to dwell in the underworld (and the myth is much, much older than the Christian version -- the Hades tales in Greco-Roman mythology are an easy place to start).

    Here is Tori, looking around for the hidden parts of life, the parts we hide under social niceties. I think most of her music is about that search.
