lyrics

Now here comes that mountain leaking from my lips:
Minerals mumble tumble crumble down to a kiss.
Awake with half-an-eye, blushing, begging to be pinched.
Nothing quite like rolling boulders to try and resist.

(CHORUS): You slice opal pie
For my dinner plate eyes
Sugar no lies, say I am safe and I am kind
And I am fine, I'm even mine
Supple supply
Another day in paradise

I am ever speechless, babe I am terrified
But I won't buy no silence tonight
And you ain't selling so I'll be telling it all true
Like one, two, one, two, to the ever-loving blue yonder
(CHORUS)

That winter I lived smirking behind Buddha's back
Getting goods good got and stuck in picture frames
Breaking chains, slurring names
Than those wings turned to shoulder blades
And it's penniless, jingling
In the cold, tingling
Then you sliced me up some
(CHORUS)
