"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 CommentI don't know how to quite interprete this song;...at least for me I see the song's meaning like this: Tori is watching two persons who are attracted to each other who but don't dare to recognize it, and doubt if the other one really sees beyond the surface (-->"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")...But Tori tells him that he can "dare" because he doesn't have to fear that he dares in vain, he just has to be patient until she thinks she can dare,too,... because she has got the same yearnings for him, but she needs time to lose the fear: "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" ...hm, however, still strange lyrics, maybe I interprete wrong at all. But, the piano and her way of singing it....shivering and mesmerizing.
