lyrics

i look at myself i'm running on a track i'm running on a track
WHOO! look at me go.
i look in my head i'm looking back i keep looking back
& it don't help me no.
i fear the high shelves while i'm stretching up to stack
i've been stretching up just to stack the dirt behing my ears
at least im not the monster you wear as a mask
you wear a tough mask dear but i've seen ya in the mirror

i hope my dreams are coming true & i'm not falling out
i hope my feet are treading true & i'm not stumbling down

who was the softie & who had the crooked eye?
i like yer scars. i think they compliment mine.
who held the whip & who bore the bloodshed?
you put the flowers in my hair.
now fruit flies swarm around my head.
but you didn't know the color of my frock.
so now i suit my frock to fit yer flowers.

but i hope yer dreams are coming true & yer not falling out.
i hope yer feet are treading true until they crumble down
into bone dust

the sheets don't stain up on their own behind the ghosts
all the bugs are coming. you invited them.
come on & be a good host.
who ate the pansies & who'm i to exhale now?
all the bugs are drawn to me & i can't keep the water down
but you didn't know the color of my frock
i lost my form to suit my frock to fit yer flowers

i hope my dreams are coming true & i'm not falling out
i hope my feet are treading true until they crumble down
into bone dust

about

Audrey Bean Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Grotesquely Childish!
Uncomfortably Pleasant!
Highly Inappropriate!
i was born in a bog with a plastic spork in my mouth, a sphinx without a secret.
You'll wish I didn't fit yer fancy.
Book me prease now; I sweep the nation.
