Once I was a serene teenaged child
Once I felt your cock against my thigh
You said you were a poet, man
your poetry wasn't obvious to me
when you said I had the Stuff that drove you Wild
but the feeling of power was intoxicating, magic
the feeling of power was intoxicating
the feeling of power was intoxicating, magic
the feeling of power was intoxicating
oh oh oh, oh,
Make-up and dis-eating-orders
Post-order New Order is harder
I wanna stay up all night, now that I live on my own
I wanna be one of you guys
but I don't want your body so close and dismembered
I don't want your body so close and dismembered
don't take your pants off 'cause I don't want to see it
don't take your pants off 'cause I don't want to see it
no no no no
no no no
Once I was a serene teenage child
Once I felt your cock against my thigh
You said a girl like me was torture for you
I didn't know what to do about it and
somehow it made me feel proud
the feeling of pride and the loneliness to it
the feeling of pride and the loneliness to it
the feeling of pride and the loneliness to it
the feeling of pride and the loneliness
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh

    General CommentThe first time i heard this song, i thought it was about rape. Now i think it's the jading that happens to most people in their late teens- an older man had a relationship with her, and she relished her sexual power over him. But now she sees it doesn't really mean anything.

    General Commenti think that it's just about a girl who wants to be "grown up" and mature, but then it just goes to fast for her.

    General Commenti think it's about how sex changes you. and disappoints, in a way.
    like this song so much. it's pretty close, in its meaning, to 'sex changes' by dresden dolls. dd's song rocks harder, though.
