"Lust" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
Hey you gender nectar sifting
Through the grain of gold tripping at
Your door is that you. alpha in her blood
And when the woman lies you don't
Believe her

Rolling and unrolling
Coiling emerging
Running free
Running through the underworld
Into your room

Is he real or a ghost-lie
She feels she isn't heard
And the veil tears and rages
Till her voices are remembered
And his secrets can be told
Hey you gender nectar
Crystalline from the vine
You know you'll drink her

Rolling and unrolling
Coiling emerging running free
Running through the afterworld
Into your room so she prays
For a prankster and lust
In the marriage bed
And he waits till she can give
And he waits and he
Waits

    General CommentTo me, this song is the ultimate tale of forbidden love. Two people so transfixed with each other, that they truly merge their existence, if only for a moment in time.

    I find the following line intriguing:

    'so she prays,
    for a prankster and lust,
    in the marriage bed
    and he waits till she can give.'

    It is obvious that the female in this song is not available, perhaps married to another. She is afraid what this lust will do to her marriage, so she is hoping that the passion in her own marriage will reignite and save her from herself.
