"Daisy Dead Petals" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
Daisy dead petals that is her name
She's in a phone booth phase so
Underneath the shade of a peppermint tray
She can turn it out with a heal on she just rides into town
Knowing what they'll say knowing they're around the corner
Got a crack in got a crack in some strange places

Daisy dead petals that is her name.
So maybe she tastes like a hamburger maid well
These dead petals honey brought me here
She said "these dead petals honey brought me here"

Dancing on a dime hearing mother cry
Maybe she's around the corner

Got a crack in got a crack in some strange places
On my back with on my back with some dirty dishes

Falling down, falling down, all over the river
Falling down, falling down, falling down

Wish what I'm feeling could go on like this forever
Falling down, falling down, falling down

And since we're down might as well stay
Might as well fry some eggs
And wave to the shade of the peppermint tray
She's a new friend not a skeleton to ride into town
Knowing what they'll say knowing she tastes like a hamburger maid, but

"These dead petals honey brought me here"
She said, "these dead petals honey brought me here"

    General CommentI think this a song about someone who recognizes they are different in a way people view as bad or generally not positive, and embraces it. She has dead petals, and she is like, "you know what? Fuck it. These dead petals, honey, brought me here." Her petals may be dead, but she loves them. Good for her!

    General Commentcan the "petals" actually be "pedals"? as in piano pedals? the idea just crossed my mind. love how multi-layered Tori's music is, that after 20 years i'm still learning
