lyrics

He’s a swanky freak
with worldly glasses
He’s got a pea coat build
and dog like romantics
the devil plays pool
and smokes stogies in his mouth

He’ll tell you, “I love you”
if you offer him a smile
but don’t lend him your hands
or any of your diamonds
All he’s got is your promise

He talks
left
handed
and I listen
through my shirt
an emotional cyclopes
who cannot see
the half of
his own hurt
but I see too much through my shirt

He’s a swanky freak
with something to hide
He writes sonnets for serial killers
while he gazes thoughtfully
through your pearly eyes
He’s that mumbling war hero
out on the streets
he’s one motherfucking
swanky creep
A murmur in the night
too close for comfort

He talks
left
handed
and I listen
through my shirt
an emotional cyclopes
who cannot see
the half of
his own hurt
but I see too much through my shirt
