Lyrics

Cupid complained to Venus
that he got stung while stealing honey
you said, he had to leave us
without a reason, rhyme or money
we see his face every morning
staring back from the cold milk carton

Oh I know a place
where the wind cries joseph
the hills dip de dip de dip
like obscene roller coasters
on piggy back we chased the sun
tested his waxen wings and tongue

When the lights go down
I'll be around, I'll be around
She said," I know, and my own little world
is inside of me"
time heals itself
She said, " I know, and my own little world
is outside of you"

I'll exhume your body
and tear the frame from your rotten flesh
and take them to mommy
and sit on the porch with her constructing
out of your bones
we'll pick 7
and build a wind chime
that sings to heaven
when the lights go down
I'll be around, I'll be around

She said," I know, and my own little world
is inside of me"
time heals itself
She said, " I know, and my own little world
is outside of you"

You don't say, you wouldn't say
"it hurts a lot"
you don't say, you wouldn't say
"it hurts a lot"
