It's K-Mart, the bathroom
I'm staring in the mirror
The green lights are bright
It makes the lines clearer
Where did the angel go
Cigarette smoke's all that's left
I've traded in my wings for a string of pearls
And now the string is all I have left
The light bulbs burn
Some ones in the stall
Big white
Brick wall
Makes me feel small
And I take my shirt off
Looking for a glimpse of flesh
I peel back the concrete
I hope there's still some soil left
Cuz I am fading
I am fading
I am fading away
I am fading
Just like fairy tales
Hero loses faith
I am fading
The air smells like urine
Its getting hard to breathe
I could walk out that door
But no one really ever leaves
I take all my clothing off
Trying not to forget
Stupid things like
The color of urine
And the smell of stone when it's wet
And I am naked in the mirror
With a feather in my hand
The lady comes out of the bathroom
Screaming, 'Oh, Jesus'
Like I was a man
And I ask her
'Hey, what happens to us
When we get old and in the way?'
I guess she didn't answer me
Cuz it took me away
And I am fading
I am fading
I am fading away
I am fading
Just like fairy tales
Hero's loses faith
And I do not know
Why or when
I guess that Spring is just leaving me again And I am fading I'm fading
