There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Until She Started to Sing


she needed someone who could tighten the bottles
she wanted someone who couldn't yank on her string
she could have used a giant umpire
to call her out when she started to sing

she took her pills to the edge of the forest
she wanted to get high with the deer at the spring
she wanted to dance like a gypsy in autumn
she took her pills, didn't feel a thing
until she started to sing

la la, la la la la
la la, la la la
la, la
la, la, la, lay la la
la, la

when you're the boss ain't nobody to boss you
when you're the queen, people got to shut up
when you're the master all the slaves keep it quiet
the goddess drinks from a special cup

ain't nobody who can tell you nothin'
can't tell you no, oh no, you'd better not
ain't nobody who can remove the throttle
pretty soon nobody is all you got

la la, la la la la
la la, la la la
la, la
la, la, la, lay la la
la, la

the floor is cool to lay upon
the tile is silver and covered in blood
ain't nobody to tell you uh-uh, no, no
they'll find your body after the flood

she needed someone who could tighten the bottles
she wanted someone who couldn't yank on her string
she could have used a giant umpire
to call her out when she started to sing

she took her pills to the edge of the forest
she wanted to get high with the deer at the spring
she started to dance like a gypsy in autumn
she took her pills, didn't feel a thing
until she started to sing

la la, la la la la
la la, la la la
la, la
la, la, la, lay la la
la, la
