Desire

Set fire by a girl named desire
Set fire by a girl named desire

Somewhere between half cocked
And full-blown insanity
Stuck in grid lock
Running on an unknown battery
Full-grown profanity
Why can?t it be that I could speak freely
Freely speaking and this dreaming
Couldn?t possibly have any meaning
It?s just the same old shit
And it keeps on repeating
The purpose well it
Seems to be self-defeating
What she said to me
As she was leaving
And keeps on repeating

Must save face now that I?m on the case
And what a terrible waste with all this extra space
And yet no place to put an entire empire
That?s been set fire by a girl named desire

But that?s the battle with one?s self
Happiness or wealth
Letting it ride on these cards I been dealt
And who would ever, ever, ever
Go and hand it to you for free
Would you believe me, never
When it ain?t even happened to me
It wouldn?t the first time
Tripping into, into the sublime
And that?s fine
Because I see it?s so easy
How everything comes to you
It amazes me how everybody wants to come get next to you

Must save face now that I?m on the case
And what a terrible waste with all this extra space
And yet no place to put an entire empire
That?s been set fire by a girl named desire

Put it down
Put it down, down, down

Must save face now that I?m on the case
And what a terrible waste with all this extra space
And yet no place to put an entire empire
That?s been set fire by a girl named desire

Set fire by a girl named desire
Set fire by a girl named desire
