Machismo of Desperation

lyrics

She's not a stripper, she's an exotic dancer
Her body's a temple... yeah, and a breeding cancer
"It's serendipitous," she whispers serenely
You don't acknowledge her pouting but you can't ignore her preening

She's always on graveyard making all them ends meet
Better living a lie than living out on the street
There's a fool for sale wherever money tends to be
but the wolves don't smile they just show off their teeth, boys

She's the mouthpiece
and the lips
and at best you're just whatever's left
She's the mouthpiece
and the lips
and you're nothing
at all

I know a man who falls in love each night
when he's not getting love he's getting into a fight
So calm, collected, and cruel (cool) just like a vampire on the prowl
but you don't stick your neck out for him he only wants you to howl

He's the mouthpiece
and the lips
and at best you're just whatever's left
He's the mouthpiece
and the lips
and you're nothing
at all

The ubiquitous gaze from the door watches you
"God" is on the clock. He's at your 10, your 5, and your 2
but that's just my opinion

Of course I'm the mouthpiece
and I'm the lips
or at best maybe I'm just whatever's left
'cause you're the mouthpiece
and you're the lips
or you're nothing
at all
